This beer is nothing horrible by any means. A step up from the everyday maybe, but nothing more than another Corona. I call this an alternative to Corona when someone wants a variety. The smell is almost identical and the taste is quite similar along with the color and consistency. One that is worth trying for the money but nothing special by any stretch of the imagination.

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

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a thin 1-finger white head that quickly dissolves into a thin wispy lace.

S: Slightly skunked smell with aromas of corn and grains.

T: Equal mix of grains and breads with mild flavors off hops and malts.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent Mexican beer but nothing I would go out of the way to grab again.
