A Mes rate: Malty. Crap appearance. No head at all no matter what you do. All I have to say on the subject.

12 oz. bottle at Max & Erma’s, Columbus, OH. M&E’s "Beer of the Month" (yeah, right). This beer doesn’t deserve many words. Mexican Budweiser with added trace amounts of hops.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Had this in a can on a plane to Cabo. The appearance of the stewardess that gave me the beer was incredible, the beer was not. Just a south-of-the-border version of Meister Brau. Of course, this did not stop me from having about 8, accompanied by the requisite tequila. Upon landing, I immediately regretted my decision as I deposited this fine pale lager all over the tarmac. Avoid.

KUEric (889) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle: A metallic, malty flavor and arom dominated this ’premium’ beer. Not bad for a mexican import, but is that really saying much at all? Not good, and I rated well above average.

johndoughty (4464) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2006
Strange chemical like aroma upon opening. Served from a clear bottle. Some dryness which is moderately pleasant but overall quite poor.

leaparsons (8916) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2006
Bottle. Golden with no head. Aromas are thin grain with corn, some salty butter and metal. Flavours are incredibly thin - gritty grain and weak lemon with strong soda water notes. Not very especial.

Tmoney99 (12075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Can. Poured an light pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly. Light grainy aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a short sweet finish. I would not recommend this to a freind.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Fizzy pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet corn. Flavor of sweet corn and light honey

Corn aroma, sweet malty corn flavor, corn colored. Like most Mexican beers, good to cool the tongue off from spicines,, but not much beyond that.
