12oz bottle in Acapulco- A slight reddish golden in color with an aroma of corn. Taste of corn with a little sweetness. Better tasting Mexican brew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Out of a bottle in Chihuahua. Pale golden color with a fizzy white head. Light sweet corn nose. Very light beer that I am surprised is listed as an American Dark Lager on this site. Light body with some corn sweetness and some light caramel notes. There is an odd acidic bite in the finish. Pretty interchangable with the rest of the Mexican bottles.

I had this beer while sitting in a straw-canopied restaurant on the beach in Acapulco. I had read about a few Mexican beers that you could only get there (not in the US) and was determined to try this one. Maybe any beer would taste good in this setting but the waiter brought out frosted glasses, 2 bottles of Victoria and a basket of chips & salsa and that was it. The beer pours a dark gold color with glints of amber in it. The aroma is more malty than anything else and the flavor is smooth & very drinkable. The ABV is only 4% so this is not much different than other Mexican lagers but the flavor of the beer is better because of the slant towards a vienna style. It’s got a better malt backbone and a Bohemian lager yeast profile. It’s also not in a clear bottle which is a plus in the hot sun of Mexico. Hey, you can’t go wrong with some seafood soup, shrimp tacos and your wife next to you on the beach in Acapulco in December.

it is a a lager very different to the otrher mexican ones, with a bitterness very strong flavor, and a yellow red color, darker than other ones. isnt my favorite lager but it is a very decent one in the local market here in mexico.

Bottle at Mi Ciudad in Puebla, Mexico. Pours a somewhat brown copper with a moderate off-white head. Subdued aroma of light malt, flavor is fairly weak, but no unpleasant. A slight malt flavor is evident in this pretty watery beer. I’ve definitely had worse.

Not bad. Looks more potent and tastier than it is. More depth than Corona, but a touch bland. I preferred Bohemia and Leon
