I think this is worse than Montesuma’s revenge. Quite honestly is flat all around and has a tin like taste. Not good.

Great for parties - it’s a decent value and gives you more to chew on than most cerveza mexicana. The finish is round and easy, like you want - I don’t need my cheap party beer to get wild on me, I’m already doing that myself. It is what it is, and I appreciate the hell out of it.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a pretty solid value beer. I don’t know where people get off complaining. For the price, it is comparable (if not better) than other Mexi-lagers. Far less sweet than the malty Tecate. Recommended for the $4.99 sixer price or the $1.49/ 24 oz can. 100%.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Appearance is typical lager yellow. Aroma is malty and rather weak. Taste is weak, malty, and rather bitter; its flavor is more like that of a "lite" beer than a regular lager. Smooth but watery, it is barely drinkable and quite forgettable. Maybe the can affected it some - I have found that beers taste best on-tap, while bottles come second and cans are the worst.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. I had tried this beer in the bottle and found it incredibly "skunky" and hardly drinkable. After learning about how UV light can damage beer packaged in clear or green glass, I decided to retry this one in the can...
It pours a light yellow with a small, fizzy, white head that quickly diminished. It has a very mild yeasty or bread-like aroma. Flavor is typically neutral with very little hop or malt character at all, and the palate is watery and fizzy. This drinks just like an American macro offering only much cleaner and without any real aftertaste. This is a lager that could act as training wheels for weaning your Bud-drinking friends off of the "King" and towards something outside their box. Hey, most Americans are so bad at geography, that if you can get them to go to a Mexican beer, a Belgian isn’t too much of a leap. Tell them Belgium is in Central America, just south of Guatemala. If they think Bud is good stuff, they’ll buy anything. ;)

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle from Sainsburys - only 4.5% ABV Gold with a loose white head; strong hoppy aroma; very watery and flavourless; with a slightly bitter finish. Very boring.

I like this beer. It is nothing special but you just want to keep drinking them. Way better than Corona.

well i thought id try it since it was a 6-pack and it had a neat looking bottle and nice color. But when drank its something that I would say is horrible but im also not saying bad I guess im just not a fan of mexican beer.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 I was not particularly impressed with this brew; it was the least interesting of all of the similarly priced mexican imports that I’ve tried. The flavour is weak...some hops present, some malt, and a bit of the creamy taste characteristic of Mexican beers. No unpleasant flavours like the American macro brews.
