1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drinkable with my Mexican restaurant meal, but not much of a substitute for the Negra Modelo they had run out of.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nothing terribly interesting here. Pleasant bread flavor that sits low on the front of the tongue, completely separated from the only minimal bitterness at the back corners. Otherwise, unremarkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours from the bottle a dark amber, with a pretty large light tan head that quickly diminished to leave a minimal lacing. Aroma was quite light, mostly sweet (corn?), with some toasted smell hinting in the back. Flavor is almost purely sweet, like corn and caramel mixed, again there was some toasty malt flavors hinting at the end. Quite watery and overly carbonated.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A dark amber color with a laced tan head. A toasted malt aroma. Very thin in flavor and on the palate, but has a sufficient malt aftertaste. Better than expected.
