Pours a light golden. The head is small, dense and creamy. Also the duration is fully lasting despite the small size. The aroma is faint and lighlty malty. The flavor has a faint maltiness with a weak finish.

Overall, my favorite mexican beer. Better with a lime, always smooth, DONT drink it from a can.

Not much taste or body to this beer, but it’s still at least somewhat refreshing after a long day of traveling in Mexico.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottled. Wow, this is worse than I imagined. A lifeless orange coloured beer which has a predominant character of cabbage water. Vegetables in both the taste and smell. Some sweet typical Mexican swill taste going on also. My third Mexican mass produced lager which scores 0.7. Good work amigos.Score 0.7
Subsequent rating scored 1.0. Average becomes 0.8

I refuse to go into detail about this beer. It smells better than Bud and tastes a little better.

12 oz. Bottle. Despite the clear bottle, it doesn’t smell skunked. A clean malt aroma, typical of Mexican cervesa. Medium body and smooth. While not too distinguishing, it beats the Corona, Tecate, Sol type.

Hmm... I actually liked this beer. It did not have all that much taste, but I think that it is far superior to Corona in almost every single way. Definately a very light beer, but a light beer can be a good beer if made right and I think that this one was. People should stop being biased against Mexican beers so much, even though most are pretty poor.

Bottle at Dan’s house. Pretty flat lager. Tastes of corn. Sweet with bitter fade out.

An average lager, but I preferred this to Corona, Dos Equis and Sol when in Mexico. Not sure why, but preferred withoot lime. The dark version is better.
