24 oz. can . Pale gold, clear, some steady bubbles. The nose is sweet, and smells "soapy". A straw lager. with a thin body and a bit fizzy. sweet straw lager. too sweet to be refreshing on a hot day. Grainy aroma; , thin white head; malty with some fruit; smooth, thin, easy drinking; low carbonation for a lager; some mild hop bitterness.

Pours clear yellow, moderate white head. Aroma is light malt, appleish, maybe corn Taste is similar, mostly inoffensive, except for a slight corn tang. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly.

Fairly average Mexican beer that doesn’t offer much. There’s better from Mexico

What you see is what you get. Excellente blonde mexicaine à boire avec une lime. J’adore le format de cette bouteille . Bière de juillet pour ma part. Cheers !

Golden color with white foam head. Grainy aroma and taste. Okay as a thirst-quencher.

12-ounce cans in a pint glass. While not nearly as good as Negra Modelo, this is the best pale lager I have had out of Mexico so far, definitely superior to Corona.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 This is very low alcohol content with a refreshing (non) flavor. Nice carbonation. You know what you are getting...

I don’t know how I’ve never rated this before. I really don’t mind it, it’s one of my preferred light Mexican lagers. Easy drinker. I gave this a high rating, sue me.

I drank this beer at some places in Mexico. It is a lager for mass people, for fun or to drink at regular prices or after a long walk at the market when you are thirsty. The color is yellow and clear, normal carbonation, thin and white foam, grainy, really watery, few hop, drinkable.

Pours a gold pee color. Medium foam head when poured into a pint glass. Smell is typical of a macro brewed beer. Taste is ok similar to corona, after all its made by the same company. Its more of taco bar beer.

Cerveza refrescante para tomar sin exigir mucho no tiene nada de que lo que pueda decir como excepcional más que es de lo mejor de este tipo en Mexico
