FlyingTaco (112) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Original review posted 10/18/2008... Pours a rusty, amber bourbon color that looks very thin and clammy. No head to speak of. Slight tone of amber malt but that’s it. Not bad but not much of anything. Relatively clean and sparse amber malt. Slight ginger/sarsparilla feel. Not powerful but enjoyable enough, especially with appropriately spiced food. Crisp on the palate aided by carbonation tingle.Slight pine to the hop pucker. Finish is clean of aftertaste. This one’s a nice spot start. Not one for the regular rotation but when the matchups are good it’ll eat up some innings.

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a small beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, corn, herbs and grains. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, bread, herbs and corn. Well balanced, perhaps a bit cloying.

thejackpacker (260) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Average taste but better than the average tinny lager. It might be a tinny lager at the base of it but has a very interesting spicy carbonation.

Drjohnrock (761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Draft at Christine’s on Harrison Avenue on December 23, 2016. Medium dark amber color, sweet aroma with some grainy character, creamy texture, sweet flavor with astringent finish. Not great but one of the better mass produced Mexican beers.

SamTheBarrel (785) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2017
Brown bottle poured into a lager glass, Appearance is clear amber with a small foam head. Aroma of caramel and metallic notes. Flavours of caramel and corn flakes. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, watery texture and average carbonation. Overall poor, tastes like it is brewed with only artificial ingredients and was tried to compensate with a lot of sweetness.

Rex_Remes (192) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 9, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: light lager nose, touch of malt and sweetness, soy sauce. APPEARANCE: decent medium Amber/brown, white head, some lacing followed by minimal residual. TASTE: watery malt, some sweet n sour, bland fruit, grape skins. PALATE: slightly acidic/cleansing, watery texture with fizz. OVERALL: mediocre. Focus seems to be on sweet mash with not much hope coming through. Passable beer with relatively light body and complexity. I think overpriced for what you get.
