Color is a curious mix of light orange, gold, dark yellow and faint brown. No head though, even when pouring fast! The smell nose is oakiness, which is odd. A roasted butterscotch also in the mix. Like most mexican beers, a doughy yeast comes on strong after swirling. Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour taste. Lot’s of vanilla maltose, however its not overpowering. A sprinkle of nuttiness and a bit of pizza dough mouthfeel. Quenchable to the thirst.

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.

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).
