Not much here. Drink it COLD! Slightly better than a Corona for what thats worth. In the restaraunt I tried this in they served it with a glass rimmed with salt and a lime.....

Dark gold, small head. Skunky with nots of malt in aroma. Strong skunk flavor with some sourness. A touch of bitterness in the finish.

Fizzy bubbly pale yellow. Smelled corny. Unbelievably sharp carbonation bite on the palate. Flavor wasn't nasty, but it wasn't good either. Not much going on at all. Lime might have helped, but I had already sacrificed it to the more worthy glass of tap water on the table.

A can. ::::: This was a close encounter of the bland kind. I can’t believe I drank the whole thing.

jefcon (1391) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Yellow pour with an open, airy foam. Aromas of corn and a one-dimensional, stale malt flavor. Tons of carbonation. Still, fairly clean and much weightier than other of its Mexican brethren.

When in Mexico...this is better to drink than the water. Not by much though.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2008
12oz bottle. Golden in color with active airy bubbles that burst quickly. Mild macro skunk in the aroma & corn. Starts watery & finishes watery with a small nine volt effect on the tongue. Blah tasting like sour apples or something. Last half down the drain. Grupo Modelo down the drain again…
