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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

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.

I had it in mexico, so I cant tell whether I was just on a mexico high, or it was so hot that this tasted better than it probably actually was

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.

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.

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.

12 oz into dog-faced mug.

A: Looks very pale-golden. Not much lacing head virtually disappears.

S: Smells kinda like a Corona, not much there. although this beer is much better than a Corona.

T: Very light maybe a bit of well pasteurized hop character. Faint grains. Bit metallic.

M: light bodied but not terrible for this type of beer.

D: Very refreshing for those of you that have a palette for lime and salt add it to this beer its good for what ails you on a hot summer's day.

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.
