faint hoppy nose, golden hue with a moderate white head, rice-like taste, metallic tones, nothing but unpleasantness in the finish, pretty poor.

Looks like a carbonated version of corn oil. Head was large, but very fizzy and disappeared quickly. Strong corn aroma with a touch of skunk. Very bland. Taste was very watery, but it had a strange dry feel to it, to go with the sharpness of the carbonation. Three months ago, before I really got into tasting and rating, I would have said this was alright. Amazing what a difference there is now. I got about a quarter of the way through the half litre bottle and didn't want to finish it. Blech.

The poor cousin to Corona. Rather bland and needs the lime wedge to give it some sort of taste. Has almost no head when poured, possibly it doesn't travel well. Give it a miss.

Boring. Useless. Just had it because f***ing mexican retaurants can't have a better choice.

Ungstrup (29954) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2003
A yellow beer with a light foamy fast diappearing head. The aroma is slightly sour as if it has been brewed on corn. The flavor is flat a little sour and watery. A very boring beer - especialy for a cold country like Denmark

imdownthepub (10768) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2003
Bottled. Pale yellow, highly carbonated, white fading head. Nothing to recomend about it. Slight malt backtaste, but mostly just fizz. Bought it, tried it, won't buy it again.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2003
Light yellow appearance, foamy white head. Some grassy notes inside a spritzy body with a light hop bitterness. Amazing unskunked, but I guess the moral of the story is, if you're expecting this to be a good beer, you're gonna be SOL.

Clear bottles aren't very impressive, especially when the beer is next thing to water. This stuff has a strange aroma. I think it's brewed from old tacos or nachos. It's kinda sweet. Another one of thoese beers you need to stick a lime in. Blech! No one sticks chunks of fruit in my beer. Don't waste your money.

Ernest (6422) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Has a golden carbonated color and a slightly skunky smell. Taste is of light malt and finishes suprisingly refreshing. Overall this has got to be the best from Mexico so far. I bought it as one of those "what the hell, I have not tried it yet" beers and what a suprise. Not that it is my favorite or anything, but for what it is, it was good.
