Bottle. Golden with no head. Aromas are thin grain with corn, some salty butter and metal. Flavours are incredibly thin - gritty grain and weak lemon with strong soda water notes. Not very especial.

Can. Poured an light pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly. Light grainy aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a short sweet finish. I would not recommend this to a freind.

Corn aroma, sweet malty corn flavor, corn colored. Like most Mexican beers, good to cool the tongue off from spicines,, but not much beyond that.

Far as the pale lagers go, this one isn’t bad. It’s better than their other effort: Corona. It pours a golden yellow...the color is very noticeable, and then it actually has a little but of flavor. Not really much. Corn notes abound. As far as pale lagers go, this one is not bad.

Dunno what cinco de mayo is but the bar near me was pushin this and corona to extreme, now corona aint great but its easy to drink, but this was dearer and had a stronger corona taste than corona, the light taste of corona is ok like, but this is strong tasting, ouch it feels acidic, ’american’ style beer aint great compared to our cheaps in europe

Very light to medium bodied with no character. No hoppy taste either. I wouldn’t get it again.

From the bottle.

Pours a clear, attractive yellow with a nice fluffy white head. The aroma is grain/corn and a bit of grass. The flavor is grainy and weak, slight hints of grassy hops but really dominated by the adjuncts; mouthfeel is watery and flat and even at about 45 F it feels too warm for what it is. This one reminds me why they serve bad beer cold.
