One of the better adjunct lagers I've had. Medium minus corn flavor, a crackery malt on the finish with a bit of cereal. A more malt flavor than some adjuncts.

I liked this beer alot when it first became available in Austin. Yay, a cheap Mexican beer that is actually a little better than Corona! I drank it now and then for about a month. I'm not sure if its just because it is decaying due to non freshness or the old adage about familiarity breeding contempt, but this stuff tastes pretty terrible to me now. Tons of lime and salt or in a michelada and its drinkable, but its barf city on its own.

Mexicali pours light pale yellowish and has little head. It has a skunky taste and smell, but still goes down somewhat smooth. It comes in a clear bottle, which could explain the degraded taste. This is not the best beer from Mexico and is somewhat rare to find in the Midwestern portion of the United States, I procured a six pack at Binny's Beverage Depot in Chicago.

One of the better Mexican beers out there that I have had, and my favorite next to Bohemia. Refreshes the palate but not super light, like a Corona or Sol; tastes just right. Great, crisp taste and goes down easy. I wish I could find more of this but they only had one bottle left at my local Total Wine.

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose—corn seems to stand out in particular—along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of corn adjuncts along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little maltier compared to the other Mexican Adjunct Lagers that I had. It could pair well with some food prepared in corn tortillas if you are looking to stay purely Mexican.

This pours a clear, pale yellow color with a foamy white head. It has a pretty strong grain scent to it. The texture is thin and the taste is very grainy. Surprisingly decent for being a light colored Mexican beer in a clear bottle. Not much too it, but this is still a much safer bet than drinking the water in Mexico and better tasting than Corona.

A very clear pale golden color with a decent white head that holds to a thin cover with reasonable traces of lacing in the pint glass. The aroma is just a light rice cereal idea and some sort of adjunct malt presence. Not a lot of action to the look, not too exciting so far. The first taste brings an acceptable cereal grain brightness, fairly typical of these macro-lager/pilsener brews. There's a slight malt sweetness blended in with maybe an illusion of some citrus. It's fairly light in body but carries a reasonably frisky, tiny-bubble carbonation that keeps the feel pretty tingly and refreshing. This is drinkable enough but that macro cheap grain sweetness just builds up on your palette and this isn't going to attract revisits.
