Grabbed this at a supermarket instead of the usual Mexican offerings

A: Pours a golden color with a small head that dissipates to nothing. No lacing to speak of. Reminds me of apple juice.

S: Some malts and wheat, but not much going on here.

T: A faint citrus component and some malt, but overall plain and boring.

M/D: Thin to medium bodied with little carbonation. Not good and won't buy it again. Would rather drink some of the Mexican macros than this.

Light fizzy ½ finger head fades at a med pace, crysal clear golden light lager color

Nose is more like macro swill, skunked lager, light metallic, a light wheat and pilsner malt, hint toasty. A bit of decent malt that saves it but it seems like it was mistreated.

Taste is a bit better, toasty malt and bready taste kick in at first, plenty of wheat, and a whole grain pasta like taste. Light lager fruits and pilsner malts, just a hint of skunk and metallic taste. Little juicy malt, and faint touch of grassy hop. Finish is a bit more bitter, more grassy hops, dry, semi crisp lager finish, light toasty malt.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, but kinda meh. The other two from them were much better, but this still beats almost all the other lager beers from the area.

A bad imitation of a kolsch beer style;

is poor in general, rare style in my country, its taste has reminiscences of a kraeusened style.

Good for a sunny day.

drink from the bottle, good for "Aguafrìa cheeses" a region from the metro of my city, famous for its cheeses.

A much more complex and enjoyable taste profile than the lagers offered by the macros. I'm not traditionally a lager fan, so perhaps I'm biased, but I found the malty, bready sweetness quite refreshing. Surprisingly representative of the style and my first Mexican koelsch!

I have a full respect for anyone who is able to manage a business based on the 1516 Rheinheitsgebot, especially in this southern environment where corn seems to be the (inexpensive) principle ingredient of their competitors.

I wish Minerva full success!

Another beer from Guadalajara's Minerva Micro. It is said to be inspired by Kölsch style.

This is a yellowish beer with fair head when poured in a glass.

Smell is good, from strong malts and a little fruit.

Taste is very nice, some caramel along with citric.

A very refreshing beer for those hot summer nights.
