If you’re in Mexico and your aim is to get rip roarin’ drunk, you can usually get this stuff pretty cheap. Horse piss for pennies, it is.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Extremely watery. Thin flavour. Metallic finish. A horrible beer. I could imagine it would be great with some burittos or something??

Golden lager color. White head that dissipated almost instantly. Thin metallic flavor. Sweet note of cider in the middle of the flavor. Not enjoyable.

Preservative-laden, astringent, bubbley and acidic. The Mexican equivalent of Miller Lite.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 2004 bottle. I actually bought this only half-jokingly. I was planning Mexican for dinner, and am sick/tired so didnt want a big, alcoholic beer. Just wanted something refreshing. Granted there are much better choices out there that fit that bill, but nonetheless, I still wanted to try this one, being not altogether disenfranchised from Grupo Modelo’s Modelo line. Ok, now that I’ve, perhaps, justified drinking a pale lager, here are my thoughts. Better than average color to the pour, most likely from the corn. Maize-golden and clear with a white head. Little aroma to speak of, though what is there, is not offensive or skunky. Light grains, touch of honey and perhaps a hint of bitterness. Flavor could be this beer’s strong point, with an even honey grain taste, and yes, hops. Light and very faint, but they do add a touch of bitterness and they are unmistakeably there. Finish has a bit of lager yeast flavor and a strong note of corn, which I actually found pleasant. Corn’s not all that bad. It didnt taste like corn syrup, but like actual corn. Texture is fizzy and overcarbonated, but the light lager crispness seems to help mitigate that. Light body. Would definitely drink/buy this again if I was in the mood.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear straw color with a thick, foamy white head. Malty aroma and sweet malty flavor devoid of any hop presence. Drinks well, though. Pretty smooth and fairly enjoyable. Better than Corona, for sure.

Pours a medium golden color. Aroma is very skunky and grainy. Flavor is quite bland with a little bit of skunkiness. Finish is watery. I think there might be a slight malt flavor.

This is way better than Yuppie Corona. We used to go to an annual party and all the jive asses would drink corona wit lime. They thought my indian roommate and I were low life’s for drinking Budweiser out cans. I wish we would have brought some of this for them they wouldn’t be able to handle the skunky corn taste. THE best Mexican beer I have ever tasted.
