Mine was Sku-unky! Everything improved with a lime though. Minus the skunk...was rice and corn sweetness with a mild hoppy taste. If you ever end up south of the border, better hope you have a lime on hand though.

Preservative-laden, astringent, bubbley and acidic. The Mexican equivalent of Miller Lite.

If you’re in Mexico and your aim is to get rip roarin’ drunk, you can usually get this stuff pretty cheap. Horse piss for pennies, it is.

Not a very impressive beer. Lacks flavour, even for a Mex. beer. Interesting bottle shape, but other than that pretty boring.

Bottle. Thin and light. I think the company dropped the ball on this one.

another crappy mexican beer. the pale lager evidently doesnt suite me and this is no exception. the addiction of lime helps it a little.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Typical Mexican lager. Pale coloring, small white head, aroma like corn. Flavor is watery, as is the mouthfeel.

hopscotch (10923) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2007
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?

Like Corona, but worse. Has a smooth but strange taste. Carbonated and no traces of malt or hops. It is also expensive.

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