Percy0103 (634) - MEXICO - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A yellow beer with a small head that fades away almost inmediatly. It has the aroma of a macro with some wheat. Taste is slightly bitter, but everything disappears at the end. Aftertaste is non-existent. Looks like a macro, smells like a macro and tastes like a macro. What could it be?. I guess the answer is obvious.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Clear, pale watery golden with a fizzy head that’s gone fast. Sweet cereal and straw aroma, with hints of sour apple. Thin, with a subtle maltiness. Not bad for a light beer I guess.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 21, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden straw color with a short lived white head. S: Smells like nothing, really. A bit of corn and lager yeast, but other than that...air. I wish there was something more awful to say about it. T: Pretty much the same thing on the palate. Light, watery, and completely unoffensive because it doesn’t taste like anything. Just a hint of corn and malt. M: Light as light can be in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: This was about as close as I can think of to drinking water.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 28, 2006
Exaclty like its older sister (guera) just lighter on the alcohol, flavor and gravity. Its is still pretty much the best Mexico has to offer in the pale lager class. They do use the 4 pure ingredientes in all there beers, pure malts, hops, well water and yeast. And you can taste the diffrence from the rest of the Mexican pack of carbonated waters with artificial beer and skunk flavors. I am not biased because its my home city... have a taste for yourself.
