OK, to get a few things out of the way: (1) I don’t like Mexican beer (2) I don’t typically like really light beer (3) I’m not a fan of the Pale Lager. Now, that said, I liked this beer. Drank from the bottle in San Miguel Cozumel. Pours a very light yellow color, and quite clear. Like every other Mexican beer, it has a fair amount of carbonation. What sets this beer apart from the Sol/Tecate/XX/Corona crowd is that it actually manages to have some flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 After ordering this beer in Puebla, Mexico, and noticing how light it was, I just assumed it would be a horrible drink like Sol or Corona, but when I tasted it I was impressed. It pours very well and the appearance is very pale, almost clear, but has a surprisingly smooth flavor. If you want an alternative to the typical Mexican light beers, this is a good choice.

Had this in some little lunch place near chichen itza. Sweet malty corn flavor with some bubbles. Some kinda weird undertone that makes it taste a bit different from the average mexican beer. Almost tastes rooty, like sasafrass or something. Overall, decent for mexico.

Bottled(325ml). –Pale golden coloured, small head, bready nose. Sweetened water with some malts and corn and nothing else. Another boring and bad Modelo beer.

Out of a can from a sampler pack somebody brought back from Walmart in Chihuahua. Golden beer with a lot of loose bubbles that never really formed a head. Very lively on the tongue. Thin beer with lots of water and some corn sweetness. Another in the stream of similar pale lagers.

Bottle. Agree with Duffman on this one. This tastes like Modelo, but in a different (brown) bottle. Since this beer is always drank on or near the beach, it reveals itself as it warms.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a short lasting medium bubbly white head. Aroma has some malt with a little sweetness. Weak malty and bit sweet with some hops.

I think the Modelo people just fill a bunch of differently labelled bottles with the same beer! I can’t discriminate! Average pale lager made more enjoyable by simply being in Mexico when you drink it. Also, you can’t get the squirts from drinking it (well, bottled version anyway).

Can from a store near the Royal Caribbean port in Cozumel. Pours an abysmal yellow, with lively carbonation and a quick fading head. Aroma is stale cardboard. No kidding. Flavor is sour corn and tamale. Seriously. Watery brew that is typical of all beers from Mexico. It’s a good thing Mexico has good food... I agree with coldbrewsky: When in Mexico, drink the local elixir; it fits the ambiance. Enjoy.
