2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yet another light Mexican lager. Pours dark yellow with a head that evaporates rather quickly. Light on the mouth. Tastes has a hint of grain and toast, some sweetness, and a hint of hops in the finish. Malt and a hint of fruit in the nose.
Gold color and good carbonation, nice bitterness, a surprising good beer and really cheap superspak (6200) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2017
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/2/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, light pepper/toast, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, corn, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, light pepper/toast, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, light pepper/toast, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, corn, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/clean, bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice Mexican pale lager! All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt, corn, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean pils/corn flavors with a nice level of hop presence for the style. A nicely enjoyable offering. Far exceeded my expectations, a very well made example of the style.

Mala. Sabe muy aguada y a cartón. No se las recomiendo para nada, a menos que haya mucha sed y sea la única cerveza disponible.

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.
