1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Top marks for the bottle. The pale colour really makes it look great. I suggest that it be left like this. Alas, one has to open the bottle to review it. Most samples are skunky and lack the so-called malt flavour. Thin and unbalanced

Seems like FEMSA's answer to Corona. Fizzy, seltzer-like beer with little flavor except for some heavily cooked grain flavors. Would benefit from some lime probably.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Nearly flavorless, odorless and bodyless. This desperately needed some flavor to cover up the corn - so I did what I rarely do - squirted the lime juice in. Didn't help much.

On the beach, under the hot sun in Mexico... mmmmm.
On the lazy boy watching TV... ecch!

Another lousy Mexican lager in a clear bottle. Lots of corn in the nose and in the taste. Also a lot of nastiness thrown in there for good measure. It's horrible beers like this that keep the lime farmers in business.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Standard-looking piss-yellow Mexican type lager. Interestingly, there was little aroma at all, and what followed was very little taste, whatsoever! So, if you don't like beer, drink this!

Corn flavours and aromas dominate. No hops, no body. Better than Corona, but just. Avoid.

Please see my short review of Corona Extra. One would have a difficult time convincing me that this isn't the same beer in a different bottle.
I'm usually long-winded in my reviews, but this adjunct-laden brew isn't worth the verbiage. For what it's worth, it's less skunked that Corona Extra. Now that's a Motto of which a brewer can be proud. "Less Shitty Than Corona!!!"

This is a horrid brew. I had this beer at a party and I was wondering if it was really a beer, it tastes like 9/10 sodawater and 1/10 old skunky horrid taste.
