Bottle. Golden color with just a film of a white head. Light refreshing citrusy aroma. Very thin taste of just a hint of malt with a slight sudsy feel. Easy to drink, but I wouldn't want a lot.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 Very, very light. Has little flavor at all. Nice and smooth, but this due to its lack of character.

Ok was going cheap in the local 7/11 type store..it was over 80 degrees i was going to have a BBQ so what the hell! Seemed like a good idea.
OK pours from the simple yet attractive red /gold and black can..a light honey gold ..with a small head that dissapears fast , leaving a ring of froth round the top.
The smell I found to be not very attractive i can smell the malt but theres some kind of soapy chemical aroma too.
Taste is not too bad..its mainlly sweet malts and theres some bitterness but not sure at all if its hops..has a rather unpleasant aftertaste.
pretty average for macro-style on the palate.
average drinkability..only when its in a frozen mug and its 80 degrees outside.
I would say this beer is pretty similar to Miller High Life..but not quite as good

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 One of the better american standards i think. Doesnt get warm quick and quenches the thirst perfectly. Cheap but nothing to go too wild over.

Fairly cheap swill. Nothing too special going on here. Chemical taste and no head make for a flat watery beer without anything really going for it.

There was cinnamon here, I swear. My wife verified it as well. They must have dusted the top of the bottle with a touch of cinnamon sugar is all I can figure. It faded. There actually were some faint floral hops to go along with the taste of adjuncts.

There is something deep in my memory about this. I used to collect beer cans as a kid and I'm sure I had one of these in the 1970s. The label must not have changed one bit. It pours rather richly yellow with a chemical white foam. The aroma is dusty and sweet, anticipating the first sweet corn flavors to pass my lips. It finishes with a dried apple flavor and an absence of offensiveness. Decent, but not overdone carbonation. Not a bad beer, especially for a Mexican-brewed American Standard.

It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. It was actually fairly drinkable and didn't become undrinkable after it warmed a little. There's actually a surprising bit of malt flavor and while that doesn't mean it was malty, it just means that it was maltier than more beers in the style. I even started to pick up a little hop bitterness at the end. I had this from the bottle.

this Mexican beer is one of the best often imported to the USA and better then corona but for the price often charged for this beer you can get a much better beer fo rthe same and some times less
