3.33/5  rDev +26.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: bottle

2.25/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

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.

Serving type: bottle
