The second of six entries in the Unorganized Invitational, this is one of the few major brand Mexican beers I haven't sampled yet. Cross this off the list, as tonight I am going to try this out:
Don't let the clear bottle from the brewery that brought you Corona fool you, this Mexi-brew actaully holds some flavor and little skunk. Anyways, I poured it into a glass and got a clear golden body with a thin head that faded. Mild skunk hits the nose at first, but it paves way for a surprising spicy hop scent. The taste was rewarding, but at times was tough. The hops and corn flavors battled for supremecy, but in the end, the hops won. Not much in the malt department. It got better when I stopped thinking about the corn and started to focus on it as a refreshment.
I thought this would just be another bland Mexi-brew, but it turned out to be quite a surprise. It's better than my overall score will indicate as long as you ignore the corn flavors. That said, this won't be enough to give it first prize in this invite. We got more brews coming later...

I'm into darker beers now.. But I remember when I liked this beer a lot... But only in bottles (I don't drink cans). There isn't a lot of flavor or even anything really special about this beer, but some people don't like a strong tasting beer, this is good for them. I noticed it has lower ratings here which I can understand if you don't like this type of beer, but for a lot of people this is a perfectly good beer, with plenty of flavor and is better than corona or a lot of the other Mexican beers... But like I said... Drink the bottles, not the cans. If you drink from cans you probably shouldn't be reviewing beers lol...
