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

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.

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 ok into the glass. thin body, pale color, decent one half inch head, steady carbonation. light taste that was very nice on a hot vacation day in Cancun. Si! not a great beer but a decent thirst quencher on a hot day.

Now this is a strange style coming from the tropics of México: Czech pilsener.

It's color is quite average: Straw yellow, with little, if any, head; almost no lacing.

Smell is almost unnoticeable, but you can, maybe, pick up some maltiness.

Taste is crisp and refreshing. Period.

Mouthfeel is dry, with some bitterness from the hops.

In a hot humid day, you can have several of these.

¡Salud!

From notes. Drank while on vacation at Playa Del Carmen in Mexico.

Unique but still quite average.

Pours a yellow dried straw color. A weak fizzy head and very little lacing. Scents are wheat and sweet corn. A hop bite fights its way through. Scents are the weakest part of this beer.

The flavors pick it up a bit. There are sweet malts and sweet corn flavors. The hoppy bite is stronger and present. A bit of fruit and a tangy finish. There is a unique dry flavor to all the flavors that separates this beer from other Mexican pilsners. It is nothing overly special but it is different.

A very crisp and easy drinking beer. On a hot day many of these could go down easy. A good refreshing quality.

Not my first choice of Mexican beers but definately a step up from Corona and a few of the others. At least this beer feels like some creativity went in to making it.
