Bottle, many times. Pretty decent richer-darker Mexican amber. Weak, not terribly complex, but entirely drinkable.

I typically rate Mexican amber lagers higher than most because I like them. This is middle of the road for the style. Certainly drinkable but there are better choices.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at El Mexicano (Worthington, MN). Poured amber in color, clear, with a nice white head. Aroma of biscuits and malts. Taste of grain and sweet malts, quite watery. Refreshing and easy to drink, serves its purpose.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It is a basical beer, prefering the bohemia classic. The colour is medium dark copper and the foam is light. The sensation in mouth is so-so some malt and few hop. I will repeat some comments that these beers are perfect with the rich Mexican food like tacos, enchiladas, tlauyda from Oaxaca or a good barbecue with chorizo from Oaxaca and thousands of plates.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ve had it, but figured since I’m in a rating mood again, I’d get the tick mark (901).
It is exactly what I remembered. Watery deliciousness for a hot summer day or a spicy salsa laden burrito.

Pours a clear pale golden color. Aroma of a slight malt sweetness and bit of citrus. Taste of light malt sweetness and citrus. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, smooth and refreshing. Much better than expected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours with a deep medium amber body and a moderate size head that displays very good retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: primarily Pilsner style hops.
Flavor: mainly Pilsner style hops with some faint baked bread and mild+ bitterness. I can’t agree with Modelo that this has "strong flavor", but it is flavorful and bold in the realm of mass-produced Mexican lagers.
Mouthfeel: Light body with very crisp carbonation and a dry finish.

Bottle from a Latino market. Clear golden amber color, thin white head. Aroma of black pepper and straw. Taste has peppery biscuit. Actually not too bad.
