A modest pour produces a slightly darker body than I expected. What little head rises falls quickly. Carbonation is almost non-existent. Flat beer?

Those nose is faint, but what little smell there is comprises corn, musk, and faint skunk.

Carta Blanca is a more flavorful brew than I expected it to be. Light it is, but insipid or bland it is not. Sweet malts are up front, quickly followed by a bit of earthy bitterness. Overripe corn and boiled carrots come to mind. Sweet maltiness outstays its welcome on the palate.

The mouthfeel is more alive than the appearance suggested. Perhaps too much so. Beers should not feel like seltzer water on the tongue.

I'd choose a Carta Blanca over a US macro lager. But that's not saying much.

I must have strange taste compared to most of you but this is exactly the type of beer I like.

Bought it in a large bottle at Albertson's. I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised.

I really like Euro style beers(grew up there) and I have noticed that the Mexican beers come much closer to these then your typical, watery American run off the mill beer(coors etc)

This is a non-pretentious, good tasting, thirst quenching Cerveza.

Just what a beer needs to do. Definitely will buy this again.
