Tasted from a 40 oz bottle. Look: Pale yellow color, poor head of foam; Smell: Soft, dry malts and grain; Taste: Again dry malts and chayote with floral hops; Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp, slightly bitter with a subtly salty finish; Drinkability: I always hated this beer but the last time i drank it was good.

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.

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.

suckem up and movem out...Si!

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!

This beer is often offered at places were food from Yucatan is served.

It is a refreshing beer, yellow color, with a little bit of bitterness.

It has a very light body and smells very tiny.

Excellent for hot days, and with some Cochinita and Pan de Cazón.

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.

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.

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.

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.
