Nice little Mexican beer, nice taste and great when cold. refreshing and thankfully no lime to be added to it. Pale colour with a flat head.

Cereal, corn, metallic and all that. It’s like a grainier version of the corona. Not bad for its league of beers, certainly refreshing.

Very little aroma and the appearance is average, but this Mexican Beer has much more flavor than a typical Mexican Pilsner. No acidic aftertaste makes you want another one on a hot summer day. I like to drink a couple on Sunday afternoons while watching a nice west coast golf tournament on TV. Very good with hot tamallees, tortilla chips and extra hot salsa!

Dark yellow with very active carbonation and boiling head. Deep malty aroma. Smooth and mellow malt-grain flavors without any of the skunk or funk you'd expect. No lime needed to make this taste like something, this actually tastes like a beer. OK, it's average, but it's way better than you'd think.

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.

12oz bottle. Pours a bright gold color with a brilliant white fluffy head. Nose is light corn, syrup and honey, grass, overall freshness. Palate is very carbonated and tingly. Note of corn and grass, some light sweetness and a finish of crispness and light bitterness.

Bought a 24 oz. Can to rate. Pours a fast headed, golden beer. Extremely carbonated. head fizzes out to lots clinging lace. A very light aroma of grains and malt. No hops coming thru. Taste is carbonation with a slight burn in it follow by delicious, smooth malt. Slight hops in the finish that are clean and refreshing. Very European in style and a great dinner beer. A great offering in this style of beer and becoming a favorite.

The body has very good clarity, some visible carbonation and a bright golden color. It forms only a small bright white head that fades fast. The fast fading head is reduced to just a small ring of foam that makes some slick lacing. The aroma is full of adjunct filled malt with some dry hay and grassy hops. There are some mild corny and grainy flavors with some other cooked vegetable notes and grassy hay like notes. The finish is very clean with some mild bitterness quickly fading off the tongue. The palate is crisp and easy drinking with a light to medium body and nice active carbonation.

drank a couple cases of this over the last few weeks. much better than corona. We get this a lot during trips to Mexico, and it’s a fine everyday beer. clear, mild, not tinny, better without lime than with IMO,
