UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 still, a true middle-of-the-road mexican beer. a 24 pak of cans for 20.99; a sprinkle of lime salt across the foamless top (poured it real slow) and it was hot outside, too, but i’m inside now (it’s winter) and it tastes so terrifico with a meal of smothered burritos; jalapenos, on the side; onions, dotting a bowl of green chili and a mariachi tune filling the drinking room.

Decent Mexican import. Beats corona by a wide margin. No line needed here and relatively smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours pale yellow with small foamy white head, slight citrus aroma, high carbonation, crisp malt taste, abrupt finish. Not too bad for a pilsner.

StueyD (1441) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
A mid Amber beer with a weak off white head and served with a lime wedge. A faint aroma of malt, but with the garnish the lime overpowers anything else. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a mild bitterness, probably brought on by the lime, then there is a slightly cloying sweeter malt flavour. This combination of flavours lingers in the long finish. Draught @ Iguanas, 54th St. New York.

MarkoNm (1511) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours a clear yellow golden color, topped with an average frothy white head, quickly disappearing. Malty aroma, grainy presence. Taste is sweet and grainy, light and watery. Very mild bitterness in the finish. A bit metallic. Your typical cheap lager. Passable if ice cold and nothing else around.
