Bottle (4.5%). Golden colour, small white head. Slightly citric flavour. OK body. Not too bad for a boring pils.

Mexican swill. Plain and simple. There is no real difference from this or any of your other Anheuser Bush products. Light coloured, no tasting, overpriced Mexican swill.

this mexican beer is total crap, it is worse than a corona or dos equis. This is terrible if you are going to have a modelo have a negra modelo, not this crap

Nice golden colour with a fast disappearing white head. Sweet malty aroma with a light bitterness. Boring thin and watery taste, no freshness.

I had this with some Mexican food and it was quite tasty. It cost me almost $5 I think I got ripped off, but oh well. I could not smell it because they put a lime in it and it messed it up, so that number is a little thrown off. I think it tasted nice and malty, but then weakened in my mouth. Went down smooth and looked gold. Nothing much to it, but not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2009 This was enjoyed in Cabo San Lucas Hilton. It is sold like Bud or Miller in the USA. I drank mostly from bottles and cans. It is very drinkable cold on a hot beach. There is nothing remarkable about this beer. This was enjoyed again at Four Wids in Holden Beach. It is a great beach beer. Cold and refreshing.

Bottle. Thin and light. I think the company dropped the ball on this one.

Bottle. Rather thin for a pale lager, and that says alot. Kinda skinky, but overall this is just boring and bland.

A can. ::::: This was a close encounter of the bland kind. I can’t believe I drank the whole thing.

Not a very impressive beer. Lacks flavour, even for a Mex. beer. Interesting bottle shape, but other than that pretty boring.
