Not a bad Mexican beer at all. Refreshing on a hot day. Poured a clear golden color, aroma was subtle. Tastes like a lighter lager ... nothing special, but good nonetheless.

I must admit that I buy this on occasion because it comes in a pop-top quart bottle that I like to use for my homebrew (bigger bottles = less time spent bottling)... Anyway... It's yellow--very yellow. Served cold as it should be there's very little in the way of taste or aroma--just some grassy overtones and a slight metallic twinge. At higher temps that grainy cheap-ass bear flavor comes out with a force but it's still has a cleaner palate than most. Better than Corona, which ain't sayin' much.

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.
