look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some fruity aromas. There is a bit of a skunky aroma that comes out more as the beer warms up. Taste is much the same with a sweet corn flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that is skunky and sweet which is never a good combination for anything.

Ah, another Mexican beer that just doesn't cut it for me.

Had this one at a restaurant I was eating at while on travel for work. The beer poured a nice shade of gold, decent head, no lacing. The smell was nothing but your typical malt and barley, with lots of carbonation sloshing between the gums. It's taste was a bit metallic, not bitter, just not quite right. I'll give it an average rating, since I would be willing to try another one given a chance.

12oz bottle from Vonns Palm Springs CA for 1$

Appearance - Clear gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint acing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn mixed with some bread and grains. There is also some light hops and some grass and a skunkiness. It ends with acorn/husk grainy adjunct aftertaste.

Overall - Not good.. I'd take a Corona over this any day, and that's not saying much. There is just way too much corn syrup type taste going on. It tastes like it was made with very cheap ingredients.

12 oz into pint glass

The fizzy white head has disappeared by the time I sit down to fully analyze this brew. It is light orange with carbonation bubbles hurriedly ascending to the surface. It smells of corn, straw, bread, and alcohol. Perhaps a touch of grassy hops graces the aroma, but more likely it is just adjunct grains. The high carbonation obscures most of the minuscule flavor; the rest is inaccessible because of the cold temperature at which I choose to consume this Mexilager. To drink this beer warmer is not an option, as the taste would certainly be far too foul. Some alcohol is perceptible, which is a surprise for such a low-acohol beer. I reason that this is because there is little other flavor to mask the ethanol.

Thus it tastes like what it is: highly carbonated alcohol-water, with a few cheap grains thrown in to add color. The mouthfeel is thin and fizzy. A touch of sweet, some macro piss, and mild burn are watered down rather that compensated with full malts. Even some breadiness would help. Shoot, I could even handle more adjuncts just to provide a little bit of substance.

Lived in Mexico for a couple of years and was very happy when this (at the time) West Coast Beer made it east to Mexico CIty. Not expensive, not rich body, just a great blonde beer. I pick some up periodically in the States and I. Really enjoy just soaring its taste. Not a heavy beer but rich tasting. Huh unusual. They do something right. A great beer at a reasonable price and never gives you that bloated/sinking feeling. Keep making it available. I will keep drinking it.
