Not a great beer. Purports to be one of the best beers in the world, introduced to the market in 1966...but I wonder. It doesn’t taste very good, and tends to cost WAY too much in the U.S.

kermis (6156) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
Bottle at a Mexican restaurant. Pours nearly amber with a white head. Aroma of grain and light skunk. Flavor is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with light carbonation.

Neururer1337 (7) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 22, 2015 does not count
Wenig Schaum, der dabei sehr grobkörnig daher kommt. Geruch schwach, aber frisch. Geschmacklich sehr mild, kaum Aroma. Recht rezent, aber hartes Wasser und ungutes Mundgefühl.

MadIndian (2557) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle. Thin, corn, nasty. There is nothing going on here. Drank it simply for the rating.

HampshirePhil (200) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Can 355ml - frothy white head which is quick to disappear. Orange like appearance with carbonated taste. No real aroma, taste or palate.

DrunkSanta410 (478) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2015
From a 24oz tall boy at a baseball game...for 9 dollars. Metallic, skunky, grain and apple juice aroma. Taste is corn, grain, water and slightly sweet. No body, watery, highly carbonated. Crappy...

Franckg (311) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Rien à signaler côté originalité. Goût de malt sucré, saveurs artificielles. Arrière-goût de céréales et de levures commerciales.

Vestlake (184) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Aroma and taste are typical Mexican pale lager. If you want a pretty good lager, this may be it.
