12 ounce can..with best before dating 050515...who would have thunk it..

Pours near clear and super light, dull golden amber. decent looking loose off white head, leaves nice looking fine froth and low sheeting.

Light corn on the nose

Just a hint of flavor, medium bodied and easy drinking...Might work in a pinch...on a very hot day with some spicy food...not terrible

Sampling right now on 1/29/15. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage "Falstaff' thumb-print goblet.

Brew pours a hazy straw-yellow in color with no cap and no lacing to speak of. The aroma is of grains and sweet corn. The taste is well...gross! :P Taste like dirty water and this sweet stinky flavor with a bad aftertaste which I have no idea of what it is. Horrible! Lighter-bodied with above average carbonation. It's a drain poor after about 5 sips. You seen it here.. have to go with a "1" and that is for the bottle. Worst rating of my 523 beer reviews on here. Never again!

This beer is fine for what it is---a cheap Mexican lager. It's straw yellow and has a more refreshing taste than a lime-less Corona. Its a great beer to drink on the beach. Take it for what it is.

Format: a standard brown 330mL bottle with an okay macro label.

Appearance: a light yellow in colour with a moderate amount of carbonation visible. A small white head lingers at a cap.

Aroma: not much on the nose other than a small amount of corn adjuncts.

Taste: not much beyond corn adjuncts here, with perhaps a touch of cheap grain. Yay.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away pretty quickly with only those corn adjuncts turning into a bit of a mouth-filling fug.

Mouth feel: light in body with a medium to higher carbonation. Reasonable.

Overall: yet another 'okay but overall a bit ordinary' macro lager. Still not up there with others of the same price bracket.

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.
