Pours a light amber color with a malt aroma. Taste is light, with a minimal sweetness of caramel. A simple beer that is refreshing and easy drinking.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Slight but not extensive difference from Mexican pale lagers. A little malt in the nose maybe honey backed by grain and grass. Deep golden with a white fizzy head. Slightly sweet yet balanced. Well rounded, light bodied, and a little sweet in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling amber color with lively carbonation and frothy white head. Aroma is grainy with a little skunkiness and perhaps a touch of caramel malt. Light bodied with some sweetness and clean finish. Not bad compared to most Mexican lagers I’ve tried.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish copper color with a small white head. A light grainy nose. Sweet, a bit dirty, almost a yeasty grainy flavor, light caramel. Pretty smooth and refreshing. Not too bad.

One of those low ratings where it isn’t cause it’s bad, just cause it’s got nothing going on. Good, clean tasting Mexican lager....what to go for if you think you like Corona, can’t find a Pacifico, and Bohemia is too heavy.

Given to me by the local Mexican Resturant. Waiter said it was his favorite. Not much aroma, and a weak taste. I didn't like it as much as modela and dos Equis dark.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle. Not much aroma, at least it didn't skunk. Taste is actually not bad for a 4% lager. Much more like a decent macro light than like a Corona or other cervesa style beer. Served near zero degrees which was nice on a hot day, but the taste held up as it warmed. Recommended over any non-dark Mexican macro.

29 Jan 2013 and we sail into Huatulco, a purpose built beach resort on Mexico’s pacific coast. The beach bar that gets our custom has four beers to choose from, this being the only one I’d never had before.
The weather was hot (92F/44C) and sunny, a light lager was what was needed even if it was only 09.50 in the morning!
This wasn’t your usual pale golden colour: this had a deeper hue to it, leaning towards a copper hint to its clear and clean looks (the bright sun light helped to make it look even better), small white head on top.
Grainy nose, but not a lot of anything really.
Refreshing more than tasty: this doesn’t have any depth of flavours, it does have traces of hops and malts within but it’s supposed to replenish lost liquids in your body not give you a warm, cosy feeling.
OK for what it is.
