3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at San Clemente, this was obviously conceived to appease the corona fan that finds themselves in the restaurant, but it was certainly an improvement on that concept. Flavors are subdued but well put together, nice toasted malt, a bit of corn, fresh hops present and accounted for. For Lager fans this works quite well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solana Beach. Aroma of grain and vienna malt. Appears a yellow color with a light orange tint; no efferveascence and no head. Flavor is nutty, with toffee, and with good residual sweetness. Palate is medium-light, with low carbonation, and quite appropriate. Overall, this is an excellent representation of a vienna lager, and it is greater than the sum of its parts.

On tap at Downtown Johnny Brown’s in SD. Rich gold with a white head. Deceptively thick beer for the color. This tastes very wheaty to me! While this is not outstanding, I find it to be very good for a "mexican" beer.

Needed this for a break from real ale fest, good crisp clean beer but not much flavor, corn aroma and flavor note apperant. Could not drink more than a pint.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden lager colour with minimal head. Aroma is light malts and a little lime. Fresh and citrusy flavour but a tad thin. Still like other Mexican beers it goes down well on a hot afternoon.

Tap. May 7,2006 (P.P. Carlsbad) Pale golden. Slightly hazy. Very small head with a Light body. The aroma is Champange, grapes, barley and malts. Clasical pale lager taste with some bitter hops at the end. Lots of fizzyness. Flavors of white wine, barley, malts and bittering hops. Gassy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Pizza Port Carlsbad
Pale gold color, no head or lacing. The nose is light and spicy with some lime flavors contributed from the lime wedge they added to the edge of the glass. Along with that there’s some light toasty malts and a light adjuncty flavor. Mexican lager? Can’t be mexican if it ain’t skunked! Nice fresh and crisp hoppy edge in the tail and overall an awesome pale lager that I could definitely drink again.

First beer of night at Pizza Port. Extremely light some butterscotch flavor that was distracting. Clear with no head. Came with limes which helped. Better than Corona

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Nice clear pale gold yellow color with a smallish whitish cap of foam sticking around the top. Small bands of strings and some spotty lace stick as its consumed; and consumed quickly.
Aroma is crisp and grainy like that of mushy Cheerio’s.
Taste is absolutely wonderful for such a simple lager. Outstanding whole grain taste. Cereal crispness of Cheerio’s and Chex with a great wheat grain finish thats never, ever too tangy. It fits right in with a light toasted breadyness as a small dry hopping of a Czech pilsner style fades off the end with amazing grain taste.
Feel is clean, crisp, and bold with a very fine creamy medium body that totally fits the flavors. A perfect beer for just a quick thirst quencher. Hits the spot without a doubt and drinkable without a doubt. Damn fine beer.
