Fairly light in color, but then again it's replacing the water you're not supposed to drink, right? Head was smallish, but for a macro showed good retention, proabably due to the thousands of small carbonation bubble present. Laces nice as well.
metallic graininess is the prevalent aroma. Was shocked to my socks that it wasn't skunky aka Corona given the clear glass bottle & 4000 km of travel, etc.
Very faint grainy malt and an almost instant blast of metallic ack following that. A malty, destrose- like aftertaste clung to my the top of my palate as firmly as a sea lamprey on a great lakes Salmon.
If a beer could taste watery, thin, AND oily at the same time then this is it.
I guess if you are attempting not to drink the water and you're in Mexico and it's 47 C with the humidity, then this is a beer you'll be reaching for.

It's a step down from the more familiar Corona, but similar. It doesn't taste like much of anything, sort of a corn-ey single note. It is far from being good by itself, but that would really be doing it wrong anyway. When it's 100 degrees out, a few of these chilled to almost freezing with salt, lime and some picante sauce (maybe a splash of tomato juice, too) are exactly what you need. If you like to cut frozen margaritas with beer, this is good for that too.

Went on a little family vacation to mexico and the mini fridge was stocked with these. An american adjunct lager, but made in mexico...interesting. Poured into a glass. As expected transparent straw yellow (actually, kind of urine looking). Hard pour yeilded a big frithy head that was gone quick leaving some bubbles on the surface of the brew. Nose is grainy and reminds me of the beer i drank in high school. Little corn. Taste, if you can call it that is also very grainy. Not much of anything there. Mslightly less bold and flavorful than the american counterparts. Think i will stick to margharitas this trip instead. Not a drain pour but not something to drink if looking for a beer.
