Can into a Lager glass. Pour is a light amber with a fine head. Aroma is light. Taste is a nice warm weather beer. Finish is a nice malt. It’s a good taste.

A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, faint memories of malt, light mineral notes, not much. In mouth, a light sweet corn adjunct malt with light German hops, light mineral notes, watery like hell, basically, water. Can from Avianca lounge.

Smells like a lager. Mild tasting with a little bitter taste. Apparently it tastes good with Tabasco so I'm going try it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can + lime to mouth. Light grainy aroma and obviously some citrus and lime character. Pale yellow with a green chunk in it. Small white head. Taste is sort of grainy with some corn like flavor. Light fruity esters, almost flower like. And again, some citrus and lime. Overall a decent crushing beer but I can find cheaper swill lagers for that purpose.

vulcanmeister (204) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle. a pale golden with small white head. Faint aroma of malt, corn, and citrus. Flavor was malty with some hops. Light body. Pretty typical pilsner. Goes well with my fajitas.

On draft a local Mexican restaurant. Not the best lager in the world, even with the help of a lime. The beer poured a bright, clean and transparent straw color with very little head. The flavors were kind of skunky and bland.

Lorsque j’ai vu cette bouteille, ça m’as fait sourire et rappelé des souvenirs de voyages chez nos voisins du sud. Dans n’importe quel restaurant mexicain, ils en servent. Pas extraordinaire du tout, au contraire. De couleur dorée sans mousse, elle a l’odeur typique de ces bières en bouteilles transparente, c’est-à-dire de moufette principalement. Ce que je ne déteste pas particulièrement. Ça goûte peu, mais on détecte du maïs, son sirop et une présence maltée avec une effervescence moyenne. C’est ça.Un point de plus pour les tamales qui accompagnaient ce liquide. (1463-310515)

Bottle to pint with a lime. Better than expected. Light and pretty watery. Hardly any malts and absolutely no hop profile.

Very light light yellow with soda carbonation. No aroma no malt no nada. Somewhat. Bitter but not a good bitter from hops, just you typical fizzy yellow stuff.

Dorada muy clara, brillante. Aroma malteado. En boca, muy refrescante, bien carbonatada. Aguada. Tipica Méx. Cumple lo esperado, pa acompañar comida Méx.
