Reviewed from notes - had this beer while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a glass.

Apperance - Straw yellow (what else?) with just a film of head. Lots of visible carbonation.

Smell - There's a bit of corn, but nothing else. Very unimpressive.

Taste - I get smacked on the front of my palate with a strong corn taste which isn't all that pleasing. There's almost nothing else to this beer - 95% of the taste is on the front end and the rest is like water.

Mouthfeel - Like carbonated water.

Overall - Ugh. Avoid if at all possible.

From a 12oz bottle - My bottle says 4.5% and it clearly tastes like one and not a 6% as stated here.

A: Clear see thru light yellow w/ medium carbonation
S: not impressed; it has LIGHT BEER written al over it.
T: bitter, corn, foamy.
M: watery.
D: You can have this to win a beer-bong competition, it really goes down easily.

I was pretty disappointed with this beer, probably because I had some expectations to it. Believe it or not most of my mexicans friends do not now the existence of this beer.

This one will go down as a memory of life since i'll never ask for this one again.

Pours a clear light golden yellow. A burst of carbonation and one finger of white head quickly give way, leaving a lethargic yellow liquid. Looks like ginger ale, but with less fizz.

Smell is lager yeast, some light hops, and a strong background hit of adjuncts.

Tastes slightly wheaty, slightly corny, with an odd chalky bitterness that comes in for the finish. Thin and meh.

Light body, almost flat. Not good, in my opinion. Watery, but with a lingering chalky feel on the tongue that I really don't like.

Not impressed. Whatever this beer is, I don't think it's very good. Minimal flavor, and what's there isn't great.

Straw gold with the faintest orange notes. Head is actually worse than Pacifico, dying almost instantly. Little streaming, no lace. Aroma is mostly dry and grainy, like stale corn meal. Hops are peppery and earthy, contributing to the overall effect of drinking dirt.

The flavor is like a slightly boozy corn syrup, not overly sweet but a touch of that, and not overly skunky but a touch of that as well. Light in body, carbonation is actually pretty well attenuated to keep this creamy smooth.

In general, this is simply an undercooked pilsner, not that I'm claiming it should be off the spectrum. It is much better tasting than its cousin Pacifico, but it showcases its alcohol proudly where quality beers are more subtle. Not a good beer, but slightly better than the competition (in terms of Mexican pale lagers, not genuine pilsners).

Poured from a 1.2 liter bottle into a regular glass cup.

A: Light golden yellow color with a bubbly head that dissipates extremely quickly.
S: Strong corn aroma with alcohol and maltiness.
T: Slightly metallic with a peculiar bitter ending.
M: Light bodied with high carbonation.
D: While easy to drink, it is not too enjoyable. I can see this being refreshing on a hot summer day. Nothing special about this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - This is a light yellow in color with a slight shade of orange. The bright white head came up easy and actually showed some retention.

Smell - The grain is light and easy here if a bit on the stale side.

Taste - The grain turns corny at the taste with an offputting sweetness.

Mouthfeel - This light-bodied lager was smooth with a light carbonation that gave it a refreshing character.

Drinkability - Parts of this beer begged to be dumped but the positive aspects of it just did keep it out of the sink.

Note: I think this is only the second time in almost 2,000 reviews that I have five different ratings that none are the same. Bizarre . . .

Poured from a 12 ounce brown bottle into a pint glass. Printed abv on the bottle of 4.5%.

Appearance: Small white head is here 1 minute and gone the next. Clear bright yellow body with pretty good carbonation.

Smell: Sweet pale malts, adjuncts, and no hops to speak of.

Taste: Perhaps a slight metallic taste to it. Has a little bit of a skunky and bitter finish.

Had this in a small bar in Cozumel. Your typical thin bodied, somewhat grainy Mexican beer without much distinguishing nose or flaveor, and a slightly stale finish. But it was a hot day, the beer was cold, and I was on vacation, so nothing is too bad at that point. Besides, I have never seen this beer in the states, so I got to try something different.

Pilsner my ass. For a pils, this is a big underperformer. Like Estrella, it hints at good pilsner qualities, but doesn't go all the way. It is most unoffensive and can wash down food on a hot day. I got mine as a 5 peso upgrade from water with a lunch in Cancun, and I guess it wasn't horrible for 5 pesos. Still, no hops or decent malt profile.
