3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is quite a decent macro lager and actually tastes more like a German pilsner than most such beers, particularly those from the US< Canada, or Mexico. It’s faintly darkish gold with a medium white head steadily shrinking to a foaym ring and a hint of very weak lace. The aroma is soft grain, with hints of lemon, pine, honey, and herbs, and the faintest hint of soap. It has a light German element to the otherwise pretty good macro New World lager quality. The taste, especially at first, is more noticeable German, with a clear German herbal/grass/pine hop dominance at first, with honey and a very faint hint of grain, a light bitterness just dominating the faint grain sweetness. This soon fades, though, and the overall character degrades slightly, becoming more muddled, bland, and with a faint minerally-soapy quality coming through, but still staying pretty good. It’s a lbit on the watery side, but not heavily so. Overall, it’s drinkable, with a stronger character & flavour, and certainly more hop presence and flavour than most US/Mexican/Canadian macro lagers and is quite good. It also has no real off-flavours aside from the very faint, brief soapiness mentioned.

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!

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.
