Foamy head with golden colored body. Metallic taste. Acceptable with mexican food but not much else.

The typical Mexican beer in color and in head. Yellow with a thin white lacey head. Mouthfeel was alright, since this beer was served ice cold. I probably wouldnt order it again but I would certianly grab a Negra Modelo first.

Bleh. Tastes like corona only more water and stale. I dont have anything good to say about this beer... Not even on a hot summer day when it is ice cold.

Bottled. No skunky scent. Like many lagers, it had an ever so bland taste with hints of corn. Astringent finish. Not bad...

Very light and not very flavorful. Mostly watered down. Somewhat interesting with the right Mexican dish.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2007
The color was a watery, pale yellow. The head was thin, white, and fizzy. The aroma was skunk-like, corny, and very lacking. The flavor was corny and ale. The palate was watery and thing and the finish was lacking.

Had this at a very popular Mexican restaurant. I have to say, the best part was washing down the chips and salsa. Not much flavor and much like a typical American Lager. Most would agree that this beer works best on a hot day in Mexico...

I had many of these on a recent vacation to Mexico. It works there, but its nothing Id seek out north of the border. To me it tasted like a Bud with slightly more hops.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 I love this beer. Refreshing as a glass of cold water in the face. Tasty, light, and crispy. Try it with a breakfast, thats right breakfast, of chorizo and eggs, beans and cheese. You never had it so good.
