This is a beer that I would never get on its own. However, it is a great thirst quencher, and goes pretty good with some hot wings. It cleanes the palate fairly well and creates a good balance with the hot wings.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Poured a clear golden color with a medium soapy head that dissapeared rather quickly. The nose had a lemony sourness to it with a decent amount of malt presence. Toasted grain and biscuit also come through. The taste started a little tart and dry with a slight wheaty flavor and ended with a strong grassy hop bitterness. Carbonation was a little high. Not bad for a mexican beer.

This one was rough and I drank it from the can. Im sure its more drinkable from the bottle and closer to Corona.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2007
A grainy sweet aroma. Was a pretty gold color, but it looked somewhat corny. Flavor was a Mexican sweetness, a little dirty, a little hoppy. It wasnt bad. It was better than Corona.

Like Corona, but worse. Has a smooth but strange taste. Carbonated and no traces of malt or hops. It is also expensive.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Pale yellow-gold color with a small pure white head. Aroma is corn and skunky malt. Ive tried this beer several times from several sources (can, bottle, draft) and it always has a skunky-sweet smell and taste to it. Dont like this beer at all.

Bottle. Poured a orange gold colour with a carbonated white head which soon vanished. Had a real poor aroma and a malty taste, not very good.
