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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Not great but still not bad, sometimes the off flavor and the aroma of the adjuncts comes through. I think that this is one of the better mass produced Mexican lagers. Some where in between Modelo and Negra Modelo Serving: Bottle

bought a 1.2L bottle at lupitas market in Winchester, TN at $8.99 it was a little steep. Tasting it right now and the flavor is woderful i cant believe this is a beer from mexico because it is so good . it is somewhere between a yuengling and becks the head is a bit thin and dissapears quickly . it’s much drier than Modelo and heavier on the palate as well overall it was very much worth the price of admission.

Slätstruken lager som snålar med smakerna. För att urskilja några aromer måste man antagligen skicka den till ett laboratorium för utförliga tester.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle acquired at Fat Tuesday’s in Cozumel. "135 years of excellence", "strong flavors", & "pleases even the most demanding consumers". Could be the most inaccurate beer descriptions I’ve seen. Pale hay-colored brew with razor thin fizzy white head. Aroma of goat and stale wet grass that has been sitting in the trash too long during the summer. Thin and nearly flavorless. "Agua + Urine = Victoria"

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted in Ixtapa Mexico. White fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Pale amber color with a sparkling body. Aroma of light straw, hint of toasted malt. Over the palate came light notes of caramel. Light bodied with an average carbonation and light dry thin texture. Light bitter and sweet flavor. Light caramel ending. Quit nice in the hot Mexican sun and by far my favorite beer on my Mexican trip.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light copper color, not too much darker than a typical pale lager. Aroma is yeasty, minimal malt character. Taste is rather bitter, nothing in the sweet or spicy range to balance it out. Pretty one dimensional but not as bitter of an aftertaste as sol or corona. I prefer Leon for the Mexican vienna pilsener type beer, but overall could be worse.
