Bottled. Not bad for a Mexican beer. Had a little flavor.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2003
Clear amber. Small tan head that reminds me of pond scum. Light malt nose. Thin, watery feel. Very bland, water flavour. Some malt, some corn w/ a slight sourness.

Large head with somewhat a malty aroma.Fairly smooth taste with malt and chocolate present.A notch below modelo.

ElGaucho (2395) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2003
It had been 7 or so years since I had XX Gold Label. I was looking for something to celebrate Cinco de mayo with but didn't want to go with one of the myriad bland yellow Mexican lagers. What I got was essentially a German beer. Relatively subtle roasted malt aroma. Large head with good, frothy lace. Head is mostly lasting. Color is reddish orange, or...amber. Malty and smooth flavor; makes for a pretty decent session beer and a pretty good representation of the Vienna style. Not as good as Negra Modelo, which may be Mexico's best, but it is one of it's closest rivals.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Nice appearance in the glass. Claims of "rich, full-bodied" on the label are... well, compared to what? What we have is a thin lager lacking in overall flavor, somewhat drinkable but hardly worth the effort. Problem is this is often the best choice when you're out for mexican food, which I just *have* to do once in a while. So in the end, when in Rome...

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2003
Good amber lager appearance, best thing about the beer. Not much nose and not much taste. Indeed, I wondered how a beer with this great color could have so little taste ... no better than a Corona. In fact, the lime would have been the best part of the beer, if I had used it.

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2003
It was this or Corona at the Mexican resturant, and Lord knows I don't want another one of those. This was slightly better. I did enjoy the redish color, but that was about it. Kinda fizzy, and not too good. It's a good thing Mexico makes tequilla.

jtribe21 (21) - Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2003
Very average lager. Nothing special here. Not much flavor, but also not absent of flavor. Full bodied feeling but also very drinkable because of no bitterness and no strong flavor. In one word, average.

JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 19, 2003
On draft. Poured w/ no head. Clear amber, initial bite on the tongue, not much flavor. A bit better than BudMilCoo, but not by much

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2003
Brown beer with an average top and corny aroma. Active malt flavor with a twinge of citrus overbite. Although this doesn't fit the bill of a 'great' beer, I still prefer this over most US or piss-clear Mexican macros.
