2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
from a 32 oz bottle. i really have no problem withthis typical mexican lager. consider the source and where it is meant to be quaffed. it is a more than passable hot weather lager. beats the south and central american entries. I can taste barley malt over corn and hop flavor is noticeable. it is also a bargain. maybe not world class, but it puts a whoopin’ on corona. i would definately drink this in mexico. it doesn’t try to predend to be anything other than what it is.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Quart bottle (yes, you read that correctly), shared with my Son-in-Law who likes Mexican Lagers. Drank on 11th Feb 2017 at his new place in Southern California. I preferred it cold as you couldn’t smell or taste anything: as it warmed the corn/grain aromas and flavours began to arrive. Of all the cheap Mexican beers I have tried so far this is most likely the worst. Looked fine of course, clean, clear and golden with a snow white head (which faded a bit too quickly).

Litro in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Golden pale lager, creamy white foam. A bit cleaner, richer taste than the average lager here. A touch of hop crispness, less corn flavor. I?d tend to aim for this when available, over the other cheap lager options.
