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.

Had a Mexican themed evening with friends and decided this would compliment the food nicely.

Poured into my pint glass the beer is crystal clear yellow. About a finger of stark white head fades rather quick and leaves no lace.

The aroma is fairly muted. What I can pick up is the usual corn tortillas smell. Which I can assume is from the saaz hops. Hints of sweet malt and light breadiness.

The flavor is about the same as the nose. Faint corn and malt. A bit of skunky tartness in the finish.

Thin body with a good dose of carbonation.

Overall it washed down the spicy mexican cuisine fairly good and it was hot and humid so it was a nice thirst quencher. So technically it did it's job.

Lt gold color. WIth a foamy medium head. Aroma is sweet . A Light taste lager.It's slightly hoppy. Crisp taste. Full and smooth. Mouthfeel. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. A typical Mexican/South American Lager. Lighter tasting beer, not a lot of flavor, but it is light and refreshing.

A: When poured from a bottle to a mug, this beer had a bright yellow color and a totally clear texture. Very little head or lacing.

S: Not a whole lot of smell; some hops, a little malt and a bit of fruit.

T: There's an odd quality to this beer, but it's not very interesting. It has bitter hops, malt and some citrus, but it's really very thin.

M: A below average amount of carbonation and a dry finish.

D: I'm still searching for a good beer from a Latin American country. This isn't one of them. It's a pretty ordinary brew all around.

Pours clear pale yellow, with a bubbly white head. Two fingers slowly become a ring of foam that doesn't leave much lacing. You can smell the sweet malt and noble hop after the pour, but aroma becomes bland once the beer has settled. The pale, toasted malt flavor seems more influenced by Pilsner and Munich malts than Vienna. The hops are unbalanced enough to leave traces of skunk in the aftertaste. It's surprising that a Mexican style Vienna would appear more like the original german. Light in body and carbonation, it is fairly drinkable, but lacks the residual sweetness and roasted flavor key to the Vienna style.

This beer pours a golden color that is akin to urine with no darkness or haze to it. The smell is unfortunately the same, with just a hint of wheat behind it. The taste is very light, much like an American macro-lager. A bit of carbonation as well keeps this beer from lingering on the tongue too long, but still is not able to get the taste down in enough time. I imagine the only reason you’d drink this beer is if you were in Mexico and you wanted some local flavor, but its definitely not something you’d seek out otherwise.
