Nice pouring, nice looking brew. I had this for the first time the other night at a mexican restaurant. I tasted this lager both with and without lime. Without the lime I thought it was a very nice, smooth tasting lager. I won't go so far as to say it's my favorite mexican beer, but it's a pretty darn close #2.
When I had it with the lime, I thought it was still a good beer--however, it really changed the flavor of it. I don't want to say it took away from the beer, but it really did change the taste. Still good with the lime, but I do think it's even better without.
I think the taste was very clean and crisp, the mouthfeel was very nice. It was a little softer than a lot of lagers, but very nice. I rate this pretty high on drinkability. (My standard of drinkability is rating it by how well I think I could drink a brew all night). I could drink this one all night.

Appearance This one is light yellow in color with a smallish head.
Smell Theres a faint grain aroma here to go with the sugary sweetness, which seems to be the main attraction.
Taste The grain was just plain nasty at the taste and the sweetness reminded me of a Pixie Stick I left outside in the rain once when I was a kid.
Mouthfeel This sample from Mexico is light-bodied and fizzy in the mouth.
Sinkability This one lacks substance and winded up in the pipes.

The appearance is of a pretty typical pale lager.
The nose is suprisingly good. Fragrant floral and citrusy hops, probably of the Noble varietal. Reminds me of a weak pale ale.
Taste is flavorful, light bodied with honeyish malt, floral and citrus notes throughout and a nice, subtle hoppy finish. It has somewhere between a white wine and a mead quality that is actually quite interesting. It has a few layers, that is.
It could be cleaner, but I have to say this one caught me off guard. Well done.

This is a pale gold beer with not much head and liveley carbonation. I can't smell anything really beyond the giant lime wedge that was perched on my glass so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt and rating it average. I did pick up some musty grain smell.
The taste here is a bit tangy, (no I didn't put the lime in) something I look for more in a mexican lager than vienna but I'm not splitting hairs. The brew is light and sweet, slick and springy on the tounge, and goes down smooth.

My absolute favorite Mexican beer! The pour is a nice medium gold color that leaves great lace on the glass. The smell has slight citrus notes with a crisp malt scent that is very inviting. Flavor is out of the park with a nice mild hop bite in the front followed by a excelent subtle malt sweetness mixed with perfect carbonation levels in the finish. Perfect pairing with any spicy food or if you need a refreshing beverage on a warm day, look no further!

Had this at a Mexican restaurant in Kittery. Pale yellow color with a very small head. Poured the second bottle more aggressively, still a small head. Little aroma, some sweet corn. The taste was faint malt with a tiny hops presence. Thin mouthfeel. It did, however, pair well with my enchiladas verde.

Presentation: 12oz short & stubby brown bottle with a gold foil neck.
Appearance: Bright, clear golden in colour. Large carbonation bubbles. Creamy thin white head that clings on the glass.
Smell: Very clean aroma, just a touch of sweet grain in the background.
Taste: Body is light, mouthfeel is very smooth and very creamy. Touch of bready sweetness that is even, flavourful and goes faintly fruity -- in a soft, gentle sweet peach kind of way. The faintest hint of smooth vanilla hides amongst the light sweetness, but then it's lost almost instantly and the bready sweetness pulls thru for a second round. Light grain follows. Hop bitterness is also light with a slight twang of zesty hop and floral flavour which are quickly subdued. Finish is quite clean with some light residuals.
Notes: Before anyone says anything ... yes, this is a Vienna-Style Lager. There are quite a few Mexican lagers that are, but that's a history lesson within itself. Back to the beer ... without a doubt one of the best mass-produced Mexican lagers available. Just had one of these with a rice, bean and cheese burrito covered in peppermash salsa. It quenched, quelled and complemented quite nicely.

12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date. Very thin white lacing though it sticky quite well.
Slightly earthy hop with a spicy back, is this dry hopped or is it hop extract. Thick sweet graininess wraps around the hops to make the aroma somewhat intriguing.
Clean palate, perfect with all spicy foods and not just Mexican. Thin maltiness holds on to a sweet graininess, hops are not there just for the bitterness. Bitterness balances very well and there is a level lingering flavour of earthy floral hop. Clean dry grainy finish.
This is my top pale Mexican beer without a doubt.

12 ouncer sampled, no freshness dating observed. Pours very light straw, slight chill haze, slight white head, leaving just a tad of lacing. Just a few lazy bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Nose is corn/rice like. Just a typical macro lager going on here, lawn mower brew, or ice cold with some spicy mexican food. Besides that, pass this one by.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into a tall glass.
Appearance: Clear, light yellow with bubbly white head that mostly recedes.
Smell: Mostly hay and grass, with some spicy hops. Minimal fruitiness.
Taste: Very grassy with only a tingle of apple. Ends with a light spicy and metallic bitterness.
Feel: High carbonation, light body. Semi-dry finish.
Drinkability: Very light, easy drinking Pilsner. Not very exciting, but it does what it does quite well. Could drink a lot of these.

Very unimpressive beer. No real body to it. Pours clear brown with a short-lived off-white head. Moderate lacing. Grainy, straw aroma with a handful of corn. Watery, bubbly mouthfeel. More hay and grain in the taste, and a metallic aftertaste. Bland.

served into mug from 12oz.brown bottle crimped cap at Mexican restaraunt,a bit on the cold side mug was chilled not frosted.
Clear,light golden color,large bubbles on sides of glass,small tiny bubbles stringing from the center of the glass.Thin white,head dissapating quickley,2nd beer was better about 1/2" head lasted a bit longer. Some spotty lacing on sides of glass.
A crisp,clean citrusy aroma,also carmelly,more carmelly nose as the beer warms. Good aromas as compaired to most Mexican beers.
Clean,snappy citrus bite,a bit grapefruitty,wasn't malty at first,more malt tastes as it warms and mid taste malt flavors.A good clean,fresh citrus taste to the finish. Overall a nice balance to this beer.
A clean,light mouthfeel,pleasing and refreshing,very drinkable.A good Mexican session beer very enjoyable citrus bite really adds to drinkability. A forum post said this was the Best Mexician beer, made me give it a try. I'd have to agree with this.
