Its pretty sad when your commercial description talks about being the leading beer sold in cans in Mexico. Typical crap, though it least it has a decent alcohol content.

Bottle. This is a very dry lager, and it tastes mostly of an earthy malt with a little twist of lime already in it. Not very good.

bottle. average, white, fizzy head into clear straw yellow body. aroma is rather skunky with some corn. Flavor is a bit watery with sourness with some sweet in finish. Has that Mexican beer aroma-skunky in a good way. Good for Mexican style.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 24 oz can. Pours a nice yellow gold, with a white head that quickly disappears. No mention-worthy aroma or flavor detected. This stuff is bland, bland, and bland. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with some slight fizz from artificial carbonation. Finishes with sour chemical off-flavors. This is one of the worst beers I have ever sampled, makes Bud look like speedway stout.

Can. Sour water... Better than Corona, but not near as good as the other "Mexican Beer" I’ve had.

bottle. I can’t believe I used to think this was a good beer. It is better than most mexicans.

Definitely worth the 1.5 star rating. Pale yeller, lots o bubbles. Taste like umm water and pepper.

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.

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.
