To be honest here this beer has some horrible reviews because it is considered the garbage of garbage beers because it is cheap and people turn their noses to it. I honestly believe if the company relabeled the brand it would do pretty good. It has a miller high life taste to it, with a lemon zest after taste. I do not care for non dark beers but this one I love.

Made my review comparing to other Cervazes. Great color and smell, not as great tasting as Dos Equis Amber or Corona Firmiliar but not bad. A little too much carbonation.

Had this at the local Mexican joint. Here goes:

A: Yellow but well-carbonated. OK head but without lacing. Standard adjunct lager.

S: Lots of corn. And then lots more corn. Some barley and hops, but these are dominated by corn.

T: Follows the smell, which isn't a good thing.

F: Good. Nice and well-carbonated.

O: Bad beer. Would rather have a Bud.

I don't have too much to say about this weak lager. It tastes similar to other Mexican beers like Sol and Corona. There isn't too much to this beer. It's not the worst I've ever had, but it is definitely below average. Surprisingly this beer rates better among BAs than Pacifico, which I thought was a much superior beer. Oh well, to each their own. I won't be returning to this one.

Lite gold and thin white head disappears immediately. Bread notes and flavor. Lite, crisp mouthfeel. Easy to drink cerveza on a hot Florida day.
