A Lager beer with a delicious aroma of malt and hops and a delicate balance in its subtle refreshing taste.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 Not a terrible Mexican beer...I definitely enjoyed it more than a Corona and Dos Equis. I had a chance to sample a bottle of this on a trip to Sonoma, CA when it was in the mid 80's outside. This lager was exactly what I needed as far as being refreshing and tasty. Not too heavy, but not too light and watery either. It does lack the taste, aroma, and head found in other good beers, but it did have a nice overall balance.

Had the fridge stocked with this in Mexico. There's something about poor Latin American countries with hot climates that just makes beers like this good. But as soon as you pass the Rio Grande the honeymoon is over. I do love the neat cans. When you're drunk the can is fun to touch with those funny ridges.

Small bubbling white head. Yellow. Sweat aroma. Corn taste giving light sweet aftertaste.

It's got a good marketing scheme, good beer overall. I like the red cans espcially...it's a lighter beer, something that isn't so hard on the palate, generally enjoyable.

Not the best tasting beer ever, but it has a distinctive character. Makes me think of Mexican food and conjures up memories of some fun times south of the border. I like to drink this beer occasionally for nostalgic reasons.

A great beer to cool you off when on a canoe trip down the Niobrara. Nothing special in the Mexican beer category. Ranks ahead of Corona and behind Bohemia in my book.

A very average beer for a very average person. But I'm not a very average person. Where this beer's not bad, there's nothing special about it at all. The soft white head disappears quickly, reminding me of seafoam. It smells of cheapness, the taste is very ordinary, and borderling "cheap beer." It's nothing I'd likely buy again.

Not that bad of a beer, tastes like Bud Light with corn. Slightly fizzy with little head, pricey. Attractive can. Goes well with tacos.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2005 Easily drinkable lager. Very smooth almost cramy taste. Not what i expected from a mexican beer. For about 16 bucks a case my buddy got pretty drunk finishing about 12 in a few hours. Again easily drinkable and somewhat enjoyable beer.

Actually better out of the can than in the bottle, the metallic taste adds character. Drinkable on a hot day if the beer is really cold.
