The aroma is soft and slightly sweet. The pour is a very thin gold with no head and no lacing. The taste is kind of sweet in the front and then the flavor just vanishes in the finish. Not well balanced and not even all that smooth. Bleh

Drank from the bottle during the honeymoon, aroams of light stale hops, light cereal, and some light earth. Flavors are the same as aromas. Decent pale ale, wouldn’t go out of my way to find it, but nice on the hot beach.

My next few reviews would mostly be mexican beers with some american tossed in too, since I am on a trip around Yucatan at this moment.
ABV 4.5 %
355 ml can poured into a plastic cup. Clear golden yellow colour with a half finger head that disappeared immediately. Average amount of bubbles into the glass.
As with most mexican beers aroma is not that easy to distinguish. Nothing here too, just a "beery" smell that is pleasant though.
Taste is good, but nothing you can put your finger on, it’s not bitter, it’s not sweet. Maybe somewhere in the middle.
Medium thickness on the body and slight carbonation.
Overall, slighty better than your average mexican beer.

Bottle in Valladalid & can in Cancun. Typical Mexican pale, pours a pale yellow, near straw. Thin white head. Aroma is slightly sweet and clean, faint maize note. Minimal hops if at all. On tasting, thin and water, clean and still refreshing on a hot day. Meh.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2012 Bue à Playa Del Carmen au Mexique. Quand on a les pieds dans le sable on peut devenir moins objectif...Couleur jaune paille, mousse blanche. Maïs et un peu de malt, peu de houblon. Finale sans histoire, très douce.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle purchased from a small store on Isla Murjeres in Mexico on 11/10/2011. Colour: A curious mix of light orange, gold, dark yellow and faint brown. I give it credit for its originality! No head though. Nose: Oakiness is actually about, which is odd. A roasted butterscotch flutters. Like most mexican beers, doughy yeast comes on strong after swirling. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Lot’s of vanilla maltose, albeit not overpowering. A sprinkle of nut but remains pretty basic. A bit doughy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Bottle in the Yucatan. More bland Mexican beer. A little skunky, not as refreshing as it should be.
