Can. I cant tell if this is above or below on corona on modelo’s line. since this was out of a can, it tasted much better to me than the corona, and was actulaly less offensive than many domestic lagers, but definatly not worth the premium price it garners as an "import"

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little darker gold than Corona (the universal Mexican beer meter-stick), with a faint grassy aroma and a fuller mouthfeel. Not bad-- best enjoyed while in Mexico.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Twas surprised by this one, honestly... in a decent way. (From the can) Pours deep golden into the glass with a diminishing head, small lacing to the glass. For the first aroma of the night, it honestly had a grapey, cabernet nose to it... almost dead on. This is where good went to decent. The flavor still is still a bit blander than I wanted, with slight notes of pale malt, a quick smitten of corn, and just a hint of bitterness to round out the pull. But for such lackluster, it did have a decent mouthfeel, better than I anticipated. It cleansed the palate well enough, without necessarily feeling watery. Definitely not a lot of complexity going on in this one, but it’s certainly better than most of its cultural counterparts.

basically a Mexican beer on steroids. Still pours a light straw color with a weak head, but has more flavor than the regular mexican swills. You MUST drink this with a lime.

12 ounce bottle served up with a pint glass at Sangria’s Mexican Restaurant in Tucker, GA. This was a medium gold in color and had very little carbonation and left no lacing. It had a fruity taste and no aroma that I could detect.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2011 Bottle. I feared the worst with this one, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected. Definitely in the low end of swill, but still drinkable. The two Mexican beers that are somewhat decent are the Negra Modelo and the Dos Equis Amber. All the rest are shithouse, including this one. Perhaps its better in the can, as other raters indicate. Went down easy enough, and would be a welcome thirst quencher on a hot day. . . . . . 2/24/2011. . picked up a 12-pack of cans for $10 at Sam’s Club. I never thought I would see anything except Bud Light and Miller Lite in Sam’s.. Not bad for Mexican swill. Easy drinking on a warm spring day. I could see slamming a few of these after mowing the lawn this summer.

12oz bottle. Pours a bright gold color with a brilliant white fluffy head. Nose is light corn, syrup and honey, grass, overall freshness. Palate is very carbonated and tingly. Note of corn and grass, some light sweetness and a finish of crispness and light bitterness.
