Bottle from Smoker Friendly. Very light amber in color. Looks like tea. Malty caramel nose with a hint of sweetness. Tastes like corn with a good bit of cardboard. A hint of sweet maltiness as well. Finish is grainy. Better than most Mexican pale lagers.

ordybill (596) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a toasted grain aroma. Appearance- The beer is an amber color with a small white head. Taste- Has a basic grainy flavor, just average. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation that has a dry finish. Overall- An average beer that should be paired with food.

Vestlake (211) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Aroma and taste of typical mexican pale lagers. IMO, at the top end of Mexican choices.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle. Nose is very sweet and heavily perfumed, light evidence of corn but not much. Pours sort of a dull, clear copper with highly effervescent carbonation and a short and fizzy beige head. Soft watery body with light cracker smack toward the end, sweet but not cloying, thin with sugary and chaffy finish, perfumed, little soapy, bland, but not overly dirty or offensive. Not cloying but still pretty sweet, bitterness is nil. One of the better junk lagers.

zach8270 (3810) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Light grass and stereotypical beer aroma. Flavor is pretty mild and bland. Light corn and sweet malts with dry grass. Unimpressive.

Drank from the bottle, so no appearance for you all. Aroma and taste of typical mexican lager. Clean and easy, nothing that exciting but not bad.

PeatyPete (504) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Can 473 ml. Special Edition with design by Javier Henriquez. Amber coloured beer with off white head that quickly disappears. Slightly sweet aroma of malt and candy. Taste something grainy and à bit watery.

HonkeyBra (3707) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2015
On draft. Pours a amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of slight hops, some caramel malt, cardboard. Flavor is clean and smooth with some caramel malt notes and very slight twinge of bitterness. Light bodied, lively carbonation. Overall, the macro influence is here.

seymour (1650) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Poured from 12oz brown bottle, cool painted label, into Willybecher glass, a clear golden colour with nice white lasting foam. Aromas of husky grains, stronger hops than expected: floral with hints of black pepper spice. Flavour was grainy and surprisingly bitter too, I was pleasantly surprised by the level of hops here. Much more reminiscent of a classic German Pilsener than a crappy Mexican adjunct lager. Light and crisp, strong carbonation, refreshingly dry finish. No glaring faults at all. Good summer cool-off beer, good supper beer any time of year. I think this particular pale lager is receiving unfairly low ratings.

Alengrin (3122) - BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2015
Rating from old notes. Apparently one of the oldest beers of Mexico that are still around, since 1880, aptly illustrating the historical connection between the original Vienna lagers from Austria and the modern ones from Mexico. Thin, off-white head, deep orange copper colour, clear; corn and caramelly malts in the nose, iron, toasted bread; neutral onset, strong carbonation, thin, smooth and supple mouthfeel, somewhat metallic, fruity malts with light toasted and equally light caramel touch, mild hint of grassy hops in the finish. Quaffable and not the worst in this style I tasted.
