Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a clear light yellow. The fizzy head dissipates to nothing really fast. No lacing. The beer smells slightly metallic with faint corn husk. The taste is thinly metallic, with corn husk, slightly papery and very much in the vain of an American Adjunct Lager. Thankfully it's not skunky because of the brown bottle. The mouthfeel is very light bodied and goes down like water.

Overall, this beer would get a decent score if reviewed on a Mexican beach with my toes in the sand. Otherwise it's below average for the category, but compared to some other Mexican lagers, it's not half bad.

Had not ever seen this on tap before, and so made the mistake of ordering a glass at SFO (instead of anchor steam, which I clearly should have gotten).

The beer pours a fairly bright gold color with minimal head and no lacing. While the beer isn't as nasty looking as bud lite, it's in the running for worst looking beer ever. The nose is nearly as unimpressive, as I get light honey, canned corn and something of a seltzer water aroma (never a good sign). The flavor profile is a bit better, but not by much. There's a hint of bitterness in the finish, that helps to buoy the crappy sweet corn flavor. Otherwise, this beer is pretty watery, and I quickly start to get that gassy, slightly bloated feeling I so often experience in a glass of macro swill. Mouthfeel is very light, though there's no real off flavors, thankfully. As for drinkability, is there alcohol in this crap?

For some reason I have something of a nostalgic feeling for this beer, having drunk quite a few bottles of it in Mazatlan many years ago. However, my glass at the airport has cured that feeling forever, and I'm pretty sure I won't be ordering this swill ever again.

This a very poor beer...

Had these down in mexico where they are a little freasher.

Clear and yellow with grain and barely smell. crisp taste with a good salsa or hot dish. water and thin month. but after tequila it all tastes the same. lol

overall great when drunk but not highly recommened.

good starter for mexican lagers
