Paired with some steaks from the grill and potatoes.
Appearance: Fairly standard for a lager of this type. Nice hue of transparent yellow, but not as nearly as pale as a beer like Corona. Leaves some decent lacing and a reasonable head to go with it.
Smell: Eh. Nothing special. Some grain, a little bit of fruity sweetness... that's really about it. It smelled like a beer and that's about all there is to say.
Taste: Again, fairly standard for this type of beer. Very crisp at first, good for contrasting with heartier foods. It's mostly a grain/corn type of flavor with the slightest hop flavoring while going down.
Mouthfeel: It's a fairly dry beer and has a thin but not fizzy body. I got very little carbonation out of this beer. It doesn't leave undesired lingering or flavors on the tongue and go does very smoothly.
Drinkability: While it doesn't blow my mind, I could see myself drinking several of these if nothing else was available, despite its lack of character. In its defense though, it is a slightly better option to some other Mexican beers (Tecate, Corona, etc.).
Serving type: bottle
