The aroma is pretty good, prevailing malt notes like bread, or dough. There are also some sweet perception like honey or caramel. The behavior in glass is stable, because you can see a golden beer with a persistent foam head. Despite of that when is tasted you can be quite disappointed, the sensation is watery, soft in palate and there is no feeling at the end.

Desverger (8696) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle from Tescos (last trip back to London with homemade Mexican) - light pale yellow pour with white head. Thin grainy malty and and grassy hoppy, some hay, some corn sweetness, weak watery finish.

33 cl bottle at Mala Bar, Valencia. Pours clear pale golden, white head. Aroma is very subtle, just a hint of cereal (porridge). Taste is non-existent, nothing whatsoever. Simplest beer so far.

Vestlake (279) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Had this one straight out of the bottle. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste was pretty much like the other Mexican beers, a little light but it does the trick. I thought this was better than Corona but not quite as good as Modelo.

CanCrusher (935) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Clear, pale golden color with small, creamy, white head. Skunky aroma with some grain. Light sweet, corny and bready taste. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. I tried this one, because I got it for free, otherwise would never spent money on it.

BeerRenter76 (834) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Originally rated on 10/4/2008. This falls in the exactly what i expected category. Pale yellow body, not much carbonation, little to no head. Aroma of sweet grain, flavor is similar. Overall a very standard macro -mex beer. I have add some lime to distort the taste.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle at home, 10/09/16. Clear light golden with a well appointed white head - a good looking beer on this factor alone I would not expect to see a sub 0.7 rating for this bier !!!!! Nose is pale malts, cereals, faint lemon, corn husk, papery tones. Taste comprises cereals, straw, grains, light caramel, paper, bread, hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style.

Yup, pretty exactly what you’d expect in an adjunct lager...that weird fake lemony presence ala corona. There you go!

Pale yellow color, short head. Light malt aroma, light sweet, no bitter, some sour notes in the end, abrupt finish. Too thin, watery.
