more of a full body than Sol or Corona and a little less bitter. Pours OK with a lot of fizz but after the head settles its a pleasant drink.

Medium golden color with almost no head. Watery body. Taste rather metallic, with a little bit of malt and a smidgen of salt flavor. Just kinda gross.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 28, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Nose and flavor are both very sweet malt - no bitterness anywhere. Thin body. More palatable than expected, but ultimately one dimensional and boring.

Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2007
clear and bright golden-bronze colour, fair foamy white head; a gentle plastic aroma is all what the nose of this beer can propose; oily mouthfeel, medium-bodied, some astringence, the finish is short and quite dry with shy herbal notes - a beer that needs indulgence ...

Clear glass bottle. Pale gold without much aroma. Doesn’t taste of much, some malt and some banana notes. Not objectionable though, like many pale lagers are. Think this is a little better than the score suggets.

Cherry syrup aroma. Golden color, no head. Equal balance of cherry and hop notes. Grass finish. Noticeable lack of carbonation.

Its pretty sad when your commercial description talks about being the leading beer sold in cans in Mexico. Typical crap, though it least it has a decent alcohol content.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. This is a very dry lager, and it tastes mostly of an earthy malt with a little twist of lime already in it. Not very good.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2007
bottle. average, white, fizzy head into clear straw yellow body. aroma is rather skunky with some corn. Flavor is a bit watery with sourness with some sweet in finish. Has that Mexican beer aroma-skunky in a good way. Good for Mexican style.
