3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a nice amber color with some head, no lace. Smells -- well -- beerish, but with a sweet undertone. Thankfully free of adjunct/metal aroma. Taste -- this isn’t too darn bad. Malt, toast, and decent bitterness. A useful lawnmowing beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light copper with white fizzy head. Aroma is grainy with a little hop presence. Flavor of light toasted bread, grainy, light cracked pepper, light hop flavor and light bitter. Mouth feel is light body and over carbonation. I wouldn’t turn it down.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper amber with a small white head. Toasted malt and corn in the aroma. Lighter flavor than expected. Bright and crisp at first, with a toasted, coffee finish. Watery but refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My second gas station rating of the year. This poured a clear aber body with a smallish fizzy head that lingered none too long. The aroma was sweet and malty with a hint of lemon and traces of mineral water. The taste was much the same, but it had an odd, almost bittersweet chocolate like bitterness near the end. Much more drinkable than the malt liquor that I picked up iin a gas station a few months back.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Clear amber. Small white head. Alittle grainy and sour in the aroma. Lightly papery malt and some metal into an empty finish. Light and fizzy. Meh. I’d put a lime in it though.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. Pour produced a brown-yellow (toasted grain) colored body, topped by a white head of foam. The aroma is very hard to pick up, especially off of first pour. The texture of the beer is very watery, with a very faint sweet corn palate, I mean, very faint, followed by a bitterness, that is, if you swish it around in your mouth a little. Overall, this is fine for mass quantities, if that’s what you want.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle from my guy David Jones at work, he swears by this stuff and a shot of Patron before bed. Pours deep golden with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma is malty, but quite pale and straw-y for a vienna, almost smells like a pale lager, just with a touch more sweet caramel. Flavor starts sweet, malty, honey and caramel are the dominating characteristics. Finishes with a touch of bitterness but not much. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Oh Mr David Jones, there are so many better beers in this world, but to each his own, with a shot of Patron!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It seems like every beer made in Mexico was meant for a lime to be squeezed into it. I was recently in Mexico and saw this one. Realizing that I hadn’t tried it I ordered it and waited. It was delivered to me crowning a lime wedge. It had a little bit of a honey tang to it ,but mostly tasted much like everything else I had in Mexico.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow pour with white moderate head that dissipates quickly. Corn adjunct nose and flavors dominate, sadly...but nothing really horrible. Pretty typical Mexican brew.

Probably the best mass-produced Mexican beer out there. That being said, it’s not a great beer, but it is a nice thirst quencher on a hot day. Light amber body, mild hay and malt aroma, slight palate, and pretty sweet flavor. Goes down like a glass of water. Not bad.
