3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated 3/16/13. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a lighter straw color with a good bit of translucence to its body. The head is a two finger white shade. Bubbly as can be, it fades away quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass, either.
S: Grains and light maltiness, about what I expect from a Mexican lager. Oh, and some noble hops. Gee, imagine that, noble hops in a lager! Whodathunkit? I also notice some tart lemon/lime qualities.
T: The lime tone in the aroma moves down to the tongue, supporting a sweet malt base and faint yet zesty hop bite. Adjunct notes are thankfully kept in check. Simple as can be, but it just works so well with what it has.
M: Light and crisp. Carbonation isn’t overbearing, and it’s superbly drinkable.
O: This isn’t just good for a Mexican lager - it’s a legitimately good beer, period. Merely drinking this makes me think about 78F sunny days laying on the patio without a care in the world. This beer has just given me A) a go-to in Mexican restaurants, B) something to buy for non-beer-drinking guests when hosting a party, and C) something to actually enjoy besides margaritas should I ever end up vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

Bottle. Pours clear gold. Not bad for what it is; pale malt, light yeast esters, faint sweetness, and some adjuncts. Light body.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 fl oz bottle on 12th Feb 2017: into a Corsendonk stemmed tulip at my Son-in-Laws, bought in a local supermarket in Laguna Niguel. Looked like any other Pale Lager: clean, clear and bright golden, the head a fast fading white affair. Sadly the aroma and taste were not as good as the looks. Slight malty, grainy, corny nose and flavour. Had worse Mexicans.

From a bottle in Mexico. This actually wasn’t too bad. A bit maltier than most beers in Mexico.
