Gold pour with a fizzy head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn and floral hops. Flavor is pretty much the same, Frosted Flakes and flowers. Better than most Mexi-Brews.

I can’t say too much good about this beer. There is nothing wrong with it. It’s just there is not much to it. It’s watery, not any flavors. It might be good for a hot day to refresh. But for a Vienna style it is weak.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is grainy and corny with some underlying citrus. Flavor shows pretty much the same.

Wonderful beer just starting to get imported into the U.S. Something very sexy about this beer. Not bitter or heavy nor light and watery. One of my favorites now.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2011
Pours a great clear orange-amber color topped by a wispy thin cream-colored head. The aroma is a let down, though, as there is barely anything perceptible (although that also means there is nothing unpleasant in the aroma either). The flavor is quite nice, however, with characteristics of sweet corn and light caramel that are expected from a Mexican-style lager, but there is very little of the metallic graininess that most of the adjunct-laden Mexi-lagers suffer from.

Just came back from a run and grabbed a sandwich down the street. Wanted a super light beer with my grub. Attracted by the classic label. Surprise! This tastes pretty good. Not just water and corn and cardboard. Light hop bitterness and mild sweetness. Great hot day refresher.

bottle - probably the best Mexican beer I’ve had - actually drinkable and would be my go to Mexican beer

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 31, 2011
A: This one pours a clear golden color with a white colored head and very little, it any, retention. S: Very bland on the nose. There is a definite corn aroma to it, and some hints of cooked grain, and corn. Almost no hops or bread character to it at all. T: The flavor is very similar to the aroma. The flavor is bland and fairly unoffensive. A bit more corn to the flavor than the nose. Faint grassy hops and maybe just a bit of bread, though certainly some cooked grain. M: Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation. O: While this isn’t terribly offensive, it wasn’t very flavorful either.

30-Mar-11 (12-oz bottle, Bottled in January, 2011: sample bottle at BevMo in Solana Beach, CA)
The sales rep said this was the best selling beer in Mexico, and so my store manager took the bait and ordered ten cases. Uhm, hello, we don’t live in Mexico? This beer is only slightly more flavorful than the regular, mass-produced lagers that come out of Mexico, but definitely better. It still tastes adjuncty, corny, and grainy, though there is a mild sweetness and caramely character that at the very least, helps to mask the underlying flavors. But on the positive side, the malty flavor is certainly passable. Hops are very mild, contributing a slightly grassy flavor, but barely a trace of bitterness. Adjuncty nose with some cheesiness, but also caramely malts and a modest grassiness from the hops. On the palate, the beer’s sweetness builds, but without anything to balance the beer, it completely lacks any refreshing quality, and the beer gets really heavy and stale in a hurry. Light in body but not watery, and carbonation is medium-plus but not quite fizzy. Clear, copper-colored body with a quarter-inch of off-white head that settles to a wispy layer, leaving only a few spots of lace on the glass. Overall, this isn’t an offensive beer, and though not something I’d ever consider buying, you can do a lot worse with Mexican beers.
