On draft a local Mexican restaurant. Not the best lager in the world, even with the help of a lime. The beer poured a bright, clean and transparent straw color with very little head. The flavors were kind of skunky and bland.

At first i liked Negra Modelo a littke better but now I actually prefer this one. Some paper and mash malt. Fibish is crisp enough. Bottle at the Coyoacana.

Clear gold in color, white head and some lace. Nose is malt, the start sweet, the top thin, the finish is dry, acidic, lightly hopped, quite forgetable.

Golden color with a minimal spritz white head. Very light herbal hops aroma with only a hint of malt. Wow, this is not nearly as good as the aroma, and the aroma is borderline. Add a lime maybe it will taste more like a margarita.

Soft Corona in a fatter bottle. Those Mexican brewers are very sneaky....

SilkTork (5711) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2003
Embotellado muerto. El color dorado. La aroma ligera de la malta. Mouthfeel suave con algunas burbujas agudas. La mierda usual de pastuerised. El sabor barato de la malta. Las hojas una espiga desagradable. El cartón mojado en el fin. Suficiente aceptable lavar hacia abajo un cari.

Rapidly diminishing white head on a dark gold body. Aroma is lightly malt. Taste is somewhat sweet and shows light hopps and noticable corn in my opinion. Lively carbonation, fairly clean beer. Just not alot here

For some reason this beer is the most generic thing I have ever tasted...but after managing kitchens my whole life I have discovered a fun secret...buy a shaker of Twang (lemonlime salt) and a 12 of this in the can (do not buy the bottle)...pour a fourth out and pour about a tbs. of Twang in...chug...you will be one of the vatos in no time!
