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

Like most other Mexican beers this is mainly a thist-quencher. Straw-like colour, fast disappearing head, bit hoppy aroma, and quite a neutral flavour with a thin dry hoppish touch.

Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2008
Had this with (but tasted before the meal) Chilli con carne in restaurant "Habameros" in Bamberg. It’s weak golden with an OK head. The aroma is weak with light notes of malt. The flavour is weak with a light malty sweetness - and it’s on of the "wet & cold" - ’nuf said!

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2007
Yellow lager with thin white head. Aroma of cron adjunct. In mouth, a crisp lager with grains and corn, simple and effective, 500 mL can from LCBO. Was damned thirsty.

BeerandBlues2 (9730) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear bubbly gold with a quickly dissipating white frothy head, some leftover film is present. Aroma is sweet grass and yeast (bread, sweat) with a grainy and corny light malt nose, some fruit hop presence may have been nearby when this was brewed but failed to make it into the beer. Potato light grainy corn malt and lightly sour yeast, no acidity at all, and watery, very watery. Palate is very light and clean, somewhat dry-fizzy near the end, and burpy.

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 8, 2002
clear golden colour, few head, low hop aroma, overcarbonated, sweet and oily with a dry and flat finish - simply not good

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #1600... Can... There is no "delicate balance" in this can of beer. The malt is there (barely) with tiny notes of corn and honey, but I’m missing out on any hop experience whatsoever. There must be some hops thrown in, though, as the brew isn’t coyingly sweet. Fizzy as hell. Goes well with Mexican food, but really, what doesn’t go well with Mexican food?

Tall boy can on the Vegas strip. Very boring pale lager. Tasted of corn, grass, and blah.

daknole (9128) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Another crappy Mexican lager. Better than bud with a bit more malty flavor than American macro brews. Water and not worth drinking unless you have to.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a pale golden color with a medium fizzy head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is very weak with some musty grainy notes. Taste is grain and a bitter grassy hoppiness. Thin and watery. Meh.

jtclockwork (8491) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Pours almost like a ginger ale. Nose is a little pungent. Taste is pretty skunky as well. Probably should have rated lower. Rated 3/13/2000
