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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
24oz. can. Golden with a decent white head that instantly vanishes. Aroma is some sweet malt and corn. Flavor is corn and light grain. Not much in the finish. Typical of the style.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 12 oz. can. Hey kids! Cheap Mexican beer on a Monday night! Doncha wish you were me? But seriously. Saw a loose can and decided canned was the fairest way to judge. But no… oxidized, slightly skunky smell when I flip the top. Usual pale gold lager pour, a bit of fizz that ends with no head. Taste is mostly just carbonation, with a little bitterness and a lot of corn. Offers a little bit of thirst quenching. If not for being so gassy, might go down well on a hot day. Kudos for the can design which looks like it hasn’t changed in 40 years.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Very faint malty aroma with some bitterness. The taste was average with a thin, crisp finish.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Can... AWOL ’07... Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Not much to smell or taste. It’s seltzer water, basically. Near medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. This is to Corona as Busch is to Budweiser?

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 I’m re-rating this because I had a couple in Nashville recently after having two other beers that were far better. The boiled corn taste got to me and I came close to pouring. I would have if not for the fact that it was all the beer I had left. If it had been one of those burnt craft ales I would have.
