biegaman made us drink this in honour of cinco de mayo...thanks?

pours pale yellow with a small dense white head that disappears instantly.

aroma isn't good. dms and adjunct. dirty hose water.

taste is similar. bit of sweetness. corn and adjuncts. dms.

mouthfeel is ok. lots of carbonation and very light body.

drinkability is ok. not too offensive, but not good either. (385 characters)

I made a big mistake in picking this one up, totally needed a lime. It hints at being a decent pils, but mediocrity abounds. Tastes like a mix of Bohemia, Miller Lite and Corona. The malt flavor is almost pleasant, but then cheap beer flavors rush in and knock that out of your memory. Avoid this one. It's no Corona Light, but you can do better. (346 characters)

a beer from the light lager family without the taste of rice and corn accentuated, i drink this beer for first time the past year because its no sold in all the country, but is good in my appreciation, smell like areal beer, taste is low by the average, drinkability is for a take 4 or 5 only. (293 characters)

HUGE thanks to biegaman for bringing this to the tasting on Cinco de Mayo, everybody knows my favourite style is a light Mexican lager!

Pours a clear yellow/straw, no head, no lace, pretty damned ugly, even for macro lager standards. Smell is apple juice, citrus, musty rubber hose goodness, nice! Taste is very bland, honey, some corn, DMS, citrus, weak finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied, medium carbonation, very watery. Thanks Jan! (437 characters)

I live very near the factory so I get very fresh Estrellas, and right out of the truck they taste very good. I tried other not so fresh and they were awful. (156 characters)

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

325ml bottle poured into pint glass 29/8/12

A clear pale yellow with lots of tiny bubbles feeding a short lived finger of foam that leaves a couple partial rings of lace before it falls

S faint skunk, some green apple, dry cereal and cooked veggies, its not offensive but not very good either

T much like the smell but with a little sour lemon, again leaves something to be desired

M watery but well carbonated, just a faint corny aftertaste, pretty average

O about on par with other Mexican lagers, nothing special but I finished it without problems

perhaps I´ll find a gem if I keep looking here in Mexico but I´m not getting my hopes up that´s for sure (665 characters)
