12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date, just a code stamp which I'm not going to bother with. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass with a wedge of lime added to the glass about half way through drinking.
A - Clear transparent typical American adjunct lager gold. Looks exactly the same in a glass as it does in the clear bottle, as you could have probably imagined. Lots of bubble action, virtually no head, just a white foam that fizzles out into nothing within seconds.
S - Sweet corn & grainy malts. Virtually nothing happening here.
T - Wet cardboard water sweetened with some honey. Virtually pretty tasteless with the exception of some honey / corn syrup like sweetness. Extremely light bodied, and nicely balanced. Not very carbonated or bloating at all which is a sigh of relief when compared to the horrible adjunct lagers that are actually brewed in America. Squeezing a damn lime wedge into this thing.
M - Smooth clean refreshing. Not really anything else to say about this.
Overall, a beer that is probably best paired with some Mexican food on a hot summer day. A beer I would probably prefer to drink out of the bottle with a slice of lime rather than in a glass. Crisp and refreshing for those hot days, and with a nice low 4.50% abv you could definitely toss a couple of these back. Possibly a better pick than a Corona Extra, and definitely a better pick than Bud Light Lime or Miller Chill.

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.
