Not a great beer. Purports to be one of the best beers in the world, introduced to the market in 1966...but I wonder. It doesn’t taste very good, and tends to cost WAY too much in the U.S.

Pours super pale with a white head. Aroma is typical lager. All the usual suspects; grain, pale malts, corn and some citrusy notes. Taste is malty and corny sweet. Some crisp citrusy notes in the finish. Light as day. Watery body, soft carbonation and light body.

Immediate tangy bitter taste. Not a big fan of Corona either but I'd drink that over Modelo any day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A light quaff suitable for a hot day brewed not to offend the most timid palate.

Pours a clear golden straw yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malts, caramel, and sweet bread. Luckily I got no skunkiness with the clear bottle. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with some slight and very mild hop bitterness on the back-end to round this beer out.

Bought a 24floz can for $2.50, there is not a clear freshness date. Poured into a pint glass, where it appears a clear, medium-gold with a thin layer of head. Smells like a mixture of grass, and a puddle in the street. Coming from a can it is clean tasting with quick flush of cereal grains. For a pale mass produced lager it is pretty good.

Canned. More bitter than corona. Mostly wheat. A typical Mexican light lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A spanish, golden, crystal clear Lager with white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, toasted bread. Taste is bitter sweet. Pearly.

Den er for tynd. Fin duft, men en vandagtig smag. Brugt i 25 grader som tørstslukker ..... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
