2.2/5  rDev -16.3%

Pours a clear light orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink. Smell is very mild and watery with some malt, grain, and corn-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a very watery and pretty flavorless quality. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer and another one of the gross mass produced Mexican beers.

When eating Mexican cuisine out and about I like to order this one,pours a light straw color with high carbonation,aroma is slightly metallic and hoppy.Taste has a definent malt profile to it with a light grassy taste lingering in the background,easy to drink alot of these.I think this beer is second only to Bohemia in the Mexican beer market.

1.73/5  rDev -34.2%

Appearance – Clear yellow body with a tinge of orange. No head.

Smell – Mostly corn, but some grainy aromas help it along.

Taste – The corn and grain flavors mix pretty poorly. This brew has a nasty finish that just seems like a horrible attempt at balance.

Mouthfeel – The carbonation isn’t as cheap as in some Mexican beers.

Drinkability – This one had just enough smoothness in it to keep the rating out of the cellar.

2.25/5  rDev -14.4%

Presentation: 355ml bottle. No freshness info.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow beer with a thin white foam lace that dies quickly.

Smell: Clean, light grain, faint touch of flowers and sugar.

Taste: Smooth, even, creamy, medium-bodied. A slight citric-like bitterness emerges, strikes the palate, then retreats immediately to make way for ... a lot of nothing. There's barely any sweetness to this beer, or any discernable malt flavours. It's all in the body, which is surprisingly pleasant. Touch of grain, that turns into a dry husk-like finish.

Notes: Usually most Mexican beers are at least "okay" in my book (except for Corona Light, and anything you need to put a lime into), but this beer was just not acceptable. My recommendation: Pass on this one.

3.33/5  rDev +26.6%

12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date. Slim yet foamy white lace, good clarity.

Clean to the nose with a faint spicy hop and thin grain.

Not bad at all, very little off flavours detected ... clean dry grainy palate. Refreshingly crisp but very light on the malt flavour. Hop character follows the same but that is better any way to keep the balance with a thin spiciness. Vague cooked veggie flavour that is close to corn grits does not offend.

Must be served ice cold. A good pick out of the main stream Mexi-lagers.

3.65/5  rDev +38.8%

Appearance: Yellow but darker than Bud, not saying much I suppose. Clear, sparkly, not bad, the head lasts halfway through the drink and the lacing is decent.

Smell: Sour macro, with a little lemon perhaps, not half bad.

T and M: Surprisingly good, clean, not too much corn as I had feared. Very thin in the mouthfeel and swirling around only makes it foamy and tasteless, but only dweebs like us would think of doing such things washed down my cheap mex take-out after a very long day @work and I can use the quart bottles to save time with my homebrew a plus.

Drinkability: If you don't expect more than it offers, it does the job with grace.

poured into a mug at the Mexican restraunt from a 12 long neck brown bottle with a crimped cap.

Clear straw to golden color with a 2" fluffy white head,good retention. Some lively carbination a good amount of tiny bubbles stringing and whisping to the surface

A good clean aroma with a light sweet malt smells,fruity,some grainy aromas no real hops aromas detected.

A clean light fruity taste with a light malt/bisquitty flavor some grain tastes finishes clean,crisp with slight tartness and pleasing mild bitterness

A light,creamy mouthfeel with a slight tang. A good refreshing beers not bad for a Marco beats BMC a decent beer in a Mexician restraunt. Went down very smooth and easy. Was really good with the spicy food.

2.64/5  rDev +0.4%

Light yellow, ample white head. Smell was not much, if anything, but wasn't putting me off either.

Taste, crisp, light beer, faint hop spice vibe bolstered by ample carbonation. Kind of your run of the mill adjunct style beer, a little husk grain feel. Has some utility when drank w/ spicy or Mexican food.

For super hot weather only.

2.48/5  rDev -5.7%

While sitting at the local Mexican restaraunt drinking some Bohemias, i realized that I've never even tried this beer so I decided to give it a shot.

Poured as expected; a straw yellow with a fizzy white head which stayed around for longer than I expected. Smell was a bit sweet but not over the top DMS sweetness. Very clean flavor with just a touch of graininess and an ever so slight bitter finish. Other than that, there's not much else to this beer. Not undrinkably awful but nothing to really remember it by. I suppose if there's nothing else around I'd take it over a bud, but that situation isn't likely to come around too often.
