12 oz. can - no freshness date, but recently purchased.
Poured gold with little carbonation and a very thin fizzly head that disappeared within seconds. No lacing was left.
The smell was thin - some hints and mild hops and sweet malt. Nothing offensive - relatively clean for style.
It was fairly well-balanced. Some sweet malt intermingled with some mild hops and plenty of water - though the water was not too prominent for the style. A touch of salt emerged as the drink progressed. Not too bad of a taste from a macro lager from Mexico.
The feel was fairly clean - left a touch of sweetness. It went down relatively easy. Not too bad as a complement to a spicy meal or to cool off on a hot day - Above average for lagers from Mexico (have had quite a few, and have been mostly unimpressed, but this isn't bad.) In the end, nothing great though, and I don't know if it's worth the extra money unless, possibly, for some sort of Mexican party or meal.

(bottle code: D034A128 - poured into a pilsner glass)
A: rapidly sizzling-out head... crystal-clear, lion's mane gold colored liquid...
S: pancake batter?... dusty upholstery?...
T: typical N. American lager characteristics, overall... stale Ritz cracker, popcorn... mild dry grass, mist of proofing dough... hint of toasted husk in the aftertaste... pizza with green peppers(?!), very late
M: clean, soft... moderate tingle throughout... a bit medium-bodied for an adjunct lager, typical of the Mexican examples... dry, semi-flat finish
O: not terrible... about what I expected... not as nice as Bohemia, but still good enough to drink all night on its own or with spicy, greasy Mexican dishes
