Served at Chevys Tex-Mex in a frozen mug with a wedge of lime and a Mexican flag, both were discarded to get to the beer. Bright and clear pale yellow colour, minimal white lace. Very clean aroma, virtually nothing in the aroma other than a faint grain and corn girt smell. Intense crispness in a light body, clean palate with a thin grain flavour throughout. Some corn grit and light hop bitterness rounded out this brew and its dry finish. This is the Miller of Mexican beers, a better pick a than Corona.

2.35/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. No recognizable freshness date.
Appearance: Bright, pale golden in colour. Very active carbonation. Thin white lace.
Smell: Very metallic in the aroma with soft herbal and grain notes.
Taste: Very smooth, medium bodied brew. Malt sweetness is thin, and can be likened to diluted sugar water. Touch of fructose-like sweetness. Light citric hop flavours gently prick the palate with tea-like notes that follow and fade quickly. Finishes a bit dry with husk tannins and a pasty mouthfeel.
Notes: Not one of the best lagers to come out of Mexico. It's palatable, but bland. A run of the mill beer.

From a can. I bought a suitcase at AM/PM as an emergency step when the kegerator ran dry of Mirror Pond.
Not as bad as you have been led to believe. This is the definitive Mexican macrobrew, and it's better than any American macro. Still, a little too much corn and maybe rice.
