4.58/5  rDev +34.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very quaffable beverage. Nice initial crisp flavor with an a nice subtle bite. Hint of honey, and the toasted grains are present, with an almost "invisible" floral aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, and when poured doesn't get too much head. The smell is grainy and malty, but after letting the beer breathe, more scents come through, slightly citrusy. One of the better beers Mexico has to offer.

Had this at the Tia Juana Restaurant in Fremont, California. Best Mexican food in the San Francisco's East Bay. In you're in the Irvington district -- check this place out. It's great. Right across the street from the Safeway.

Lovely golden yellow color. A little richer in appearance than your typical lager. Good, clean smell. I don't particularly care for bubble water beers like Corona -- so the hoppy bite to this brew was terrific. Very clean on the palate. Could drink this all night.

Had this right after a Dos Equis Special Amber and a Modelo Dark Ale -- and this beer blew the XX away -- and was definitely better than the Modelo. Try this beer out. You'll be very impressed.

I am by no means and expert but I have been telling and serving people this beer for years. I first came across it in Mc Allen TX and then in Juarez. MX and I was hooked when the served it the 2nd time. I could not believe that a border beer could be this good. So forget all the floral and spicy stuff just sit back sip and enjoy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a straw yellow hue with ample carbonation and a pencil thin soft white head. The smell is crisp and grassy with mild hop presence and a moderate malt backbone. The taste is ver refreshing and quite crisp, with a slight pleasent grassyness and faint hop bitterness. Overall, Im loving this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

I really dig this beer. Really has something special going on in it, great beer that is quite easy to find. I think this beer, even though it is not an am adj. lager, I could easily turn a Budweiser drinker on to this stuff.

A- excellent golden color with a nice light, thin head that leaves thin yet solid lacing.

S- Smells very clean, hints of corn and grassy-ish

T- very smooth, corn/light hoppiness

M- thin and smooth, some what slippery

D- very drinkable- this could be a great session beer

This beer is pretty light for a darfker tasting beer. I loved the smell, the taste, everrything about this beer except for the colr. The color isn't as full as it could be. However, I still think this is a great tasting beer that is pleasing to the nose after a sip. I would recommend it to anyone. If you're ever at a mexican restaurant ask your waiter to get you one of these.

4.43/5  rDev +30.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a nice clear gold/straw color. You could see the carbonation bubbles rising. Half inch thick white head. Not much lacing.

Clean floral/citrus aroma with a touch of honey.

Flavor paralleled the aroma. Sweet malty flavor of light honey with a light hop bitterness of grapefruit.

Medium bodied but thin mouthfeel. I believe the carbonation makes it feel lighter in the aftertaste than it feels when it hits your toungue. Not much taste lingering on the palate unfortunately.

An excellent beer. Could pound it all day. Good balance and the fact this beer isn't heavy make this a good choice. This is and Negra Modelo are my favorite Mexican beers. Unless I go to Guadalajara where everybody drinks Estrella - then I gotta say what everybody says "Aqui Estrella es la cerveza que rifa!"

4.4/5  rDev +29.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours out a polished brass with little head that doesn't have very good retention. Smells of bready, crackery malts with a hint of graininess. Sweetish honey aroma. Lots of floral hops in the nose. Malt is rather light and unobtrusive in the flavor, but makes way for a bright fruitiness and loads of jasmine. Tastes almost like a mix of a helles lager and some iced jasmine tea. Just a touch of bitterness in the finish (slightly more than, say, a Coors Banquet). Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Excellent drinkability. Refreshing and full of my favorite kind of hop presence: a floral one. Best Mexican beer I've ever had, for sure. Does not need a lime.

This is one of those beers that give off a bad first impression, but then, the magic shines. Smell is a balanced hoppiness with some bready malts. We can also add some vanilla and fruitiness when it comes to taste. Mouthfeel is very crisp, and it is a very sessionable beer. One of my favourite Mexican beers

This pours an honest clear gold lager. It looks like it should come from Checkoslovakia.

Smell is sweetness, grain and a spicy hop smell. The hops are unmistakably citrus in scent.

Taste is excellent clean grain with a spicy citrus hop flavor. This is one tasty lager! Excellent melding of the citrus hops with the rest of the brew.

Mouthfeel is good.

Super drinkable brew, sad that I avoided tasting this for a long time just because it is a Mexican beer.

By far my favorite Mexican beer. A good hop bitterness, smell and taste that you enjoy through the entire drink. It has nice malt character and is very easy to drink. Not much head on this beer and what is there disappears very quickly. If you want to barbeque or hang out by the pool this is a great choice. Do not put fruit on this beer! I have to be very adamant about it everytime I order it at a Mexican restaurant. Servers think if it's made in Mexico it gets a lime. If we rated by the price this beer would deserve an A+. Not very expensive.

This beer is unlike any other, for one. It has a vanilla/pilsner feel to it. I think I could actually sip on this beer all day and not get sick of it. Slightly pale and a very pleasing aroma. Maintains flavor throughout the bottle. Definetley one to remember

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.
