2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from the can into a pilsener glass while on vacation in Mexico. A sour, malty aroma with some grainy and herbal hops. The beer was a very clear gold color with a lightly foamy white head that was small and quickly gone. It was a mostly bitter beer with some sourness, but not sweet. Dry on the palate, with very little carbonation, but still a moderately full taste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I was for 2 weeks on a holiday in Mexico. I taste several local beers. First of all I’ll give a general personal opinion. All the beers were served to cold. There was no, or almost no foam. If you ordered a beer, you always have to ask for a glass, which is also very cold. Always there was a lemon in the bottle. If you like it and put the lemon in your beer, than every beer would taste almost the same, because of the strong taste of a fresh lemon. The temperature in Mexico makes it understandably to serve cold beer. But you loose the real taste of the beer.
It’s a yellow colored clear beer, with a little white head., which disappears quickly. A lightly bitter aroma and taste. Some grains in the back. Absolutely not the worst Mexican beer.

Had this in a small bar in Cozumel. Your typical thin bodied, somewhat grainy Mexican beer without much distinguishing nose or flaveor, and a slightly stale finish. But it was a hot day, the beer was cold, and I was on vacation, so nothing is too bad at that point. Besides, I have never seen this bee in the states, so I got to try something different.

Bottle. Nice bubbly white head that mostly lasted. Pale yellow color with a sparkling appearance. Aroma of light grass, hint of cardboard, light notes of malt. Over the palate some dryness and light feel of caramel. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Light dry and bitter finish.

12 oz bottle from Mexico Wal-Mart.A little bit watery, middle carbonation, the aroma doesnt comes out of the boltle or glass, gold body,the head fades into nothing lessen a minute, a little bit salty, the palate experience dissapears as going to your throat. Tastes a lot like Budweiser to me, but with less carbonation and poor-quality hops.However its better than Sol,Corona or Modelo Especial.Recommended only if youre in the most beautiful and diverse country in the world which is....of course México.

12oz Bottle: Another pick from a window in Cozumel for a dollar. Gotta love notes that say "SAME AS ALL MEX. BEER!" I’ve also noted it was pale yellow, bubbly, had a huge head, and tasted "yawn". Haha.. I should try to reproduce these notes into something eloquent, but I’m not going to bother.

12 ounce bottle. Had it in Mexico long time ago and was pretty good. Probably not part of Modelo at the time.

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.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
