Comes in a large 1 quart brown glass bottle with no markings of any freshness date to be found. If this is available in smaller size bottles, 6-packs, or cans, I haven't seen any yet.
It pours a clear yellow color with a surprisingly large bubbly white head that lasts awhile and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass as you drink it.
The smell is sweet - a bit like bubble gum, and then there is the familiar corn adjunct grain smell found in a lot of macro lagers.
The taste is pleasantly sweet with just enough mild hop bitterness and plenty of carbonation to keep the sweetness in check. Crisp, well balanced, and quite refreshing and tasty for a cheap beer. It pairs well with spicy Mexican food, but it's also plenty good all by itself.
Spritzy yet buttery mouthfeel with the sweet flavor staying with you from start to finish. I didn't notice a trace of alcoholic presence whatsoever, making this an easy drinker. I only bought it because I never saw it before with the "caguama" label on it and I wasn't expecting much, but it was surprisingly good for what it is.

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.
