UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Re-rate. Had a couple of these while visiting a friend. It’s not bad for what it is. Grainy, somewhat sweet and only a touch of skunk. For a Mexian beer it really isn’t that bad. Refreshing enough in the hot sun and not bad paired with spicy foods. Just don’t expect anything "especial" :-)

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, nice alternative to other watered down Mexican brews. You can also throw a lime slice in this one to battle the lack of flavor.

Pale yellow, white fizzy head. Clean taste typical of style with less skunky taste. Does not ned a lime but tastes great with one. Good with fajitas or by the pool.

From a bottle poured a golden straw color with a fair amount of head. A kind of skunky smell and flavor.

Bottle. Yellow, not a very distinctive flavor or aroma. Best cold with spicy food to drown out the taste. The negro is superior.

Tastes a bit like Corona light. Golden yellow. Not much of a flavor or aroma.

Botella 325 Ml. Lo mejor que tiene es la forma de la botella. No es mas que una corona/coronita en otra botella

Plain with some nice malty notes in the finish. Had with a lime so the flavor was a bit skewed on the sweet side. Slight chemical aroma.

I give this beer a higher rating. For anyone who drank this from a can, I expect a low rating. It completely sucks from a can. But, from a bottle, I find this beer to be suprisingly malty, crisp, and quite tasty. I have had it a couple of times where it didn’t taste very freash, but most of the time, this beer does the trick for me.
