9/20/07 From 24 oz can. Aroma is sweet/sour corny pils malt with no hop character. Appearance is light clear gold with a moderate white head. Flavor is light and watery with just a touch of earthiness mixed with a low pils malt character. Mouthfeel is low bodied with a medium/high carb feel. Overall, pretty refreshing but fairly low on complexity and flavor.

Light clean golden with a small white head. Aroma was heavy skunk in the first 10 seconds but then faded away. Other than that the flavor and aroma was light malts, citrus, grains. Nothing special but not horrible either.

Not too bad. This followed a Pacifico on a scorching afternoon after I reffed a bunch of high school kids in a soccer game. Not as good as the Pacifico but not horrible. Ice cold with some lime slices and its OK.

A light copper color. The smell of corn malt, and yeast. The taste is corn, yeast and very watery. The body of the beer is loose. No finish it is a so so beer

When in Mexico...this is better to drink than the water. Not by much though.

Bottle. Pours golden with little head. Taste is fairly typical; lightly sweet malt with very little hops. Negra Modelo is much better.

One of the better South American beers I have had. Stronger flavor fuller body. Not a bad partner for a taco night.

12 oz bottle split with Jredmond. Body is Gold. Aroma is similair to a dogs butthole, but the taste is extremely smooth and very refreshing.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 12 oz bottle split with Pwn3d. Pours a pale golden body. Aroma is soft skunky character, pale malt, grains and corn. With no other options available, serve this with a lime, and it’s smooth and refreshing enough.

Drank from the can at an outdoor concert. Little aroma, but pleasant. The flavor is respectable as Mexican beers go. Was definitely the best beer choice at the concert and I would choose it again.
