look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Had this in a can as a "road beer" on the way home from running Tough Mudder VA (had drank 1 Dos Equies prior to since they were sponsoring the event)

Couldnt tell appearance due to being in a can so it gets an average rating...maybe higher or lower in a pint glass

Smelled fine nothing offensive

Tasted great although it could be cause I just ran a 10 mile obstacle course race and everything was tasting good at the time.

Overall not a bad beer it is something I need to drink more of to get a good hadle on but definetly think this beer is worth trying.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A: Ultra aggressive pour leads to three fingers of rapidly dissipating white head. Moderate carbonation.

S: Husked corn, vegetal notes, general adjuctness.

T: Easy malt, grain sweetness, enough hop bitterness to keep things from hitting Bud Lite levels...barely. Cheap American lager....

M: Cheap American lager....

O: More expensive than cheap American lager.

Got this in a can. Opening the can gives no smoke at all whatsoever. Pouring it you get a one finger head. The color of the head is white. It dissipates quickly leaving some bubbles still rising and clinging to the side of the glass. The body is similar to Corona Extra and Sol but a shade darker. Its not as a pure golden yellow like Sol and Corona Exra but its more a yellow orange thats a bit darker than Sol.

The smell is better than that of Corona and Sol. It smells malty and like corn. The picking up of corn and malt mixes together nicely. I think I may be picking up grain but not too sure.

The taste is nicer than Corona or Sol. It tastes like malt and corn. I do pick up some grain but the corn and malt dominate the grain taste. The mouth feel is nicer than either of the two previously mentioned Mexican Cervezas. It has the most robust and nice taste of the Mexican beers (not including Dos equis which I have not tasted enough to judge). The taste is nice in that the corn and malt almost make me want to describe it as robust as much as a beer like this can be. It is kind of carbonated and making it not as drinkable as it could be and is kind of a beer you drink slower.

Other than that its a nice beer to drink. If you want to pick between the Mexican lagers, pick Tecate (try Dos Equis too as I cannot compare it to Tecate because I have not tried it enough for me to give it a good and fair judgment). It has the nicest flavor; better flavor than Corona or Sol.

Bottom line, if you like golden lagers of any kind try Tecate. You might enjoy this nice Mexican brew.

1.83/5  rDev -27.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: In the bottle, but pretty standard for an adjuct from what I can tell.

Smell: Kinda sour. That's about it. A whole lotta nothing otherwise.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel has good carbonation, but this is watery with a stale bitterness in the background.

Drinkability: Not too good.

Overall: I'd take Corona.

Poured into plastic cup from can...yes not ideal, but thats my story.
Im not going to do a run down here...
Its not a horrible "macro". Its malty, heavy, and skunky. Not the worst beer in the world, but I wouldnt buy unless I was in Mexico or it was the best beer available (which is the case here). Better than bud, but not quite as refreshing as carona...
