Bottle purchased at a tienda in Playa del Carmen. Light golden hue; headless. Light, watery, fizzy and cloying texture. Very herbal; somewhat vegetable-like, with a mild bitterness. Dryish finish. Bland and off with disturbing flavors.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
One more pale lager that I came across in a tiny beer vendor on the Playa del Carmen strip. Again, average pale lager character in every respect, but made more enjoyable by drinking it in country.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden, minerally sulfury aroma. Cleanish, corny beer, light on the tongue. Not horribly objectionable, but I’m not going out of my way to find it, either.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Better than your average mass produced Mexican beer. No head, but it actually has some taste. Not bad on a hot day.
