3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was expecting either a Corona knock-off or a weak Tecate-like beer. It was neither. Cool bottle and packaging, very light yellow with an actual hoppy aroma. Decent flavor and bite, and definitely better without a lime.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale, very clear, almost metallic body with a thin, big-bubbled white head that fades quickly and completely. The aroma is sweet and actually has a respectable bit of grassy hops. There’s a bit of cooked rice in the mix as well. The flavor is a tad sweet up front, but fairly dry in the finish with a bit of bitterness and something that’s almost salty. I don’t think I really like it all that much. Very watery.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer pourswith a pale yellow body topped by a thick white head with a decent amount of lacing. The weak aroma is slightly sweet and grassy with noticable corn notes and a slight medincine note. The flavor is very watery and bland. I can see why so many people drink this beer in San Diego...It like drinking water. Light bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

Actually, not a bad bohemia style... tried it with and without the lime... was better without. Like other mexican beers, it suits the cuisine and climate of its country of origin.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yellow beere with small dissapating head. Faint grassy aroma. Light malt with some sort of chemical apple, with some oiliness. Light hops in aftertaste, very thin. Boring.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
I tried this while in Newport Oregon. Every other beer I had that week was a Rogue brew of some sort, so it would admittedly be quite difficult for a pale mexican beer to impress me while competing with Rogue’s stouts, porters, browns, and ambers. Needless to say, I was unimpressed. Aroma was decent but weak, and the beer poured a perfect shade of urine with a soapy, weak head. Flavor was likewise weak. It did have a pleasant crispness to it, and it was rather refreshing, but nothing exciting. In fact, it reminded me most of Coors light in all its watery, thin glory. Not a good beer by any means, but I’ve had worse (i.e. bud light).

Good quencher, and my favorite of the pale mexican lagers. Certainly not my favorite style.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale yellow... no head. Smells cheap and grassy. Taste is grassy and very bitter... nothing great... but it feels nice going down.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale yellow coloured. Notes of banana in the aroma. Notes of apples in the flavour and in the aroma. Very thin and watery.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma has hints of sweet fruit. The flavour is slightly malty and quite carbonated. An average boringness.
