beer Mexican, that widely remembers the birthplace of the brewmaster who create it, very Czechoslovakian in its flavor, a pleasing aroma and flavor to Czech lupulos, with ambar dark a bottle, in presentation of 12 ounces, with its pico de oro (gold tip), done by cerveceria cuauhtemoc of mexico, excellent in its presentation is one of the most expensive by bottle domestic beers in my country

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.

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!"

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.

A great German Style Beer that goes amazingly well with Mexican Food especially with a bit of spice in it. It is not too strong nor too light, just perfect and has a nice smooth hoppy flavour and satifies well. I also love the appereance with its dark brown bottle and golden wrapper. A favourite of mine.

This is one of a kind in the fact it stands out among mexican beers as more European type beer (Most commonly considered a Vienna style) but still retains a dominant focus on mexican beer culture: It copes with the heat.

Translucent gold with a thin layer of foam on the top of your glass in the same fashion some of the European lagers this beer can be associated with, the smell and taste are gentle and perhaps faint for some tastes yet the the sensation is what stads out: It is quite soft as it goes down and it is quite refreshing served cold on an iced pint on a very hot day, and it pretty much goes with any spicy food or meat dish.

Still the king of mexican beers as far as I'm concerned, exceptionally smooth, not watered down like Corona or cheap tasting like Tecate, Carta Blanca etc. Color is darker than your average lager, great in a frosted mug.

Many mexican restaurants in Texas will carry this beer. One warning, since this beer is not as well known as other mexican brews, it may have been sitting in the storage room for a while. Like all beers, if it's old it may start to get a bit skunky. If you get a bottle from a fresh batch, you will not regret trying it.

Go figure...a TexMex joint with tulip glasses, niiiice. Heavy pour does not yield much of the fluffy bone-white head, but the beer is a nice clear dark yellow color. Head dissipates fast and does not leave much in the way of lacing.

Nose is faint, but still smells better than nearly all Mexican lagers. Most noticeable is a mild grassy hop presence. Mixes with a light sweet maltiness and just a hint of sulfur.

Tasty. This is a delicate beer that deserves more attention than it gets. Has more hop flavor than actual bitterness, and actually leans toward the hoppy end of the lager spectrum. I am guessing it is saaz hops I am digging on here, it is very refreshing and crisp. Has a very Czech feel to it. I also like the yeast strain they use, it adds some light fruitiness and a creamy feel. Finishes pretty dry and is light to medium-light bodied. A tad fuller than most Mexican lagers.

This is a real treat from Mexico. I do believe this is the best export our neighbors to the south have to offer.

Lighter malt aroma that adds nicely to the drink. Nice full head. Clear light gold color. Taste is a little drier than many in style, but not sharp or bitter, which I think is why it goes so well with many foods. Good mouth feel, without excessive carbonation. A satisfying lager.
