3.11/5  rDev -8.5%

straw golden, short lasting white head, no lacing.

aroma and flavor = grainy with plenty of DMS... light hoppiness is way background... a bit of bitterness up front.

still pretty drinkable... Doubt I would buy again except when drinking with work buddies and making fajitas (again).

Looks thin, pale yellow with a weird almost electric tint, and little head.

Smells bread like with lots of skunky smells coming immediately out when I opened the bottle.

Tastes better than the smell indicates. Bread like, a bit malty, with little sweetness or bitterness.

Feels thicker than I thought it would.

Really a drinkable beer and I'm glad to have had it, but it's nothing to seek out.

Poured this German style pilsner from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pint glass. Poured a amber color, produced a off white head, decent retention and lacing left on the glass.
A foundation of sweet malted grain makes for a nice balance with the spicy hops. Well balanced and has some flavor. Not a bad choice if your looking for a Mexican beer to pair with some spicy food.

A- Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head that lingers. Good lacing.

S- Not much to speak of here. I will say that i was in a Mexican restaurant with a lot going on making it difficult to pick up on the aroma. There was certainly no astringent aroma like I usually get with most Mexican beers. I did detect some sweetness and grain.

T- Much better than I expected. Too accustomed to the poor beers that I get at Mexican restaurants like Corona or Tecate. Sweet biscuiy taste foward, hop finish. A nice bite of hops that was quite a delightful surprise. Very smooth. Nice balance

M- Light body, clean and refreshing. Perfect carbonation.

O- By far the best Mexican option IMO. A really nice effort on a German Pils. Will be my go to beer when I am eating spicy Mexican food. The sweetness of this beer really suits well with the spice.

The best of the old-guard Mexican beers, for sure ... a German pilsener in style (lots of Germans migrated to Mexico, back in the days... thus , the blonde haired/blue-eyed Mexican folks ...)
A nice sweet-ness that is usually missing from other cheapy macro-swill brews ... A decent smooth body and finish that doesn't assault your taste buds or sensibility as much as competing beers do ...
Ideal for basic Mexican cuisine (or anything similar ...
Pretty much a "lawn-mower beer" for me ... great in hot weather ...
