I prefer bock when it comes to Mexican beers (especially Indio) but Montejo is my favorite lager / pilsner they have south of the border. It's 6% alc. makes it harder as a session beer down here but it's so much better than Corona or even Dos Equis, hopefully they will start exporting it. Try it if you have a chance and enjoy!

This can be very confusing. If you try it like a Czech Pilsener it would be a common beer, but if you try it like a Lager it would get a better score. Unfotunately, beers here are almost all lagers, and if they are not, they are like adapted to lager fans. IT has a strong taste that tells you it is not a lager.

Oooo, a decent Mexican beer. A bit pale for a pilsener, as it still looks like Corona, but the smell is an acceptable mixture of malt and hop zest. No skunkiness.

Decent taste, a little bit overdone on the malts. Sweet, somewhat syrupy flavour.

A bit too fizzy, overly carbonate. Closer to an American macro in mouthfeel. Drinkable, and very enjoyable. Especially for a Mexican lager.

This beer comes out of its slender silk screened bottle a bright gold color with a patchy head and intermittent lace. The aroma is sweet with a delicate floral hoppiness. The taste is Malty with a bready, yeasty quality. Hop spice is light but balancing. The mouthfeel is medium and almost soapy. The finish is lacking in bitterness.

This is a decent example of a malty pilsner. My bottle said 4.5% so maybe theres a new/different recipe. Way better than Corona and worth a try.

Features a white head over clear straw yellow/golden liquid. Light, clean and lemony/grassy malt nose. Taste is a pleasant sharp, slightly metallic hop not and light maltiness, crisp and quite drinkable. Finishes clean, with a late hop ending, not too bad to enjoy actually.

Montejo pours a clear ambar color with a short head and nice lacing; Smell is floral, hops and yeast; Taste is some fruty; Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and well carbonated; Very drinkable and very refreshing.

I reccomend this beer, Is a good choice for a hot day.

¡Salud!

A classic from the southeastern of my country, made originally for in memoriam of the founder of its city Merida Yucatan, Don Francisco de Montejo, with 45 years of rich history, this brand is one of the czech pilsner beers sold in my city, perfect for mexican and american food, serve in a pilsner glass.

My next few reviews would mostly be mexican beers with some american tossed in too, since I am on a trip around Yucatan at this moment.

ABV 4.5 %
355 ml can poured into a plastic cup. Clear golden yellow colour with a half finger head that disappeared immediately. Average amount of bubbles into the glass.
As with most mexican beers aroma is not that easy to distinguish. Nothing here too, just a "beery"  smell that is pleasant though.
Taste is good, but nothing you can put your finger on, it's not bitter, it's not sweet. Maybe somewhere in the middle.
Medium thickness on the body and slight carbonation.
Overall, slighty better than your average mexican beer.

Stumbled across this a couple times while in Mexico during a cruise.

Drank straight from the bottle on the streets in Cozumel, so the formalities of appereance, color, smell, etc were somewhat lost in the surroundings.

But bottom line, I had to search out & reached for this quite a few more times than the solidly available Coronas.

Montejo has a thick, somewhat fizzy, white head, and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, lightly-roasted, bready malts, and the flavor is of sweet bread, mild hop bitterness, and possibly maize. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Montejo finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable.

I'm seriously surprised by this beer. Strong, crisp mouthfeel. No skunkyness that one might associate with a typical Mexican beer. In fact, this beer is totally atypical when compared to other Mexican brews. I'm a huge fan of sessionable pilsners and this one is distinctive and absolutely drinkable. A solid beer all around.

This beer tasted better than it probably was. Why, because it was a beautiful tropical day and I was dying for some kind of beer. Standard straw color, minimal head retention, sparse lacing. Light crisp taste that reeks of corn adjunct. A decent choice for those wishing to avoid Corona.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a pale yellow color.

S: Grainy husks with s bit of sweetness.

T: Some corn, a bit of pale malt, hops are not really present at all. It's watery although crisp and refreshing.

M: Light bodied, high in carbonation.

D: Probably the best of the beers that I had on my trip to Playa Del Carmen, but that's not saying much. It's not a pilsner though, just a light adjunct lager.
