12 ounce bottle

Pours light caramel, clear under a thin and vanishing off white head, that leaves no lacing.

Just a hint of malt on the nose.

Thin and on the watery side, with just some faint caramel, and sweet malt. Would be passable on a warm day or if I was actually in mexico eating some tacos with hot sauce. Besides that stay away.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grain and grass with not too much else going on. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grain and grass, with some very sweet malt in there as well. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Extremely simple, but actually not too bad. Better than expected.

This looks like an Amber (red ale, if you prefer), a clear dark beer the color of which lies right on the border between orange and red. The head is a somewhat wispy foam that holds up a thin layer on top and drops down a modicum of splotchy lace.
Grainy all the way through, the aroma begins with a startling smack of something sharp. It's extremely unpleasant, and it's fortunate that it doesn't last long. Otherwise, it's got the vegetal and corn husk notes typical of an AAL, certainly not a Vienna.
The taste is better, and it manages to resemble something like beer. Some pale malts and a little grass come through with the husk and the malts even add some breads.
The light body is expected, but the grainy astringency mars it. It finishes a little warmer than expected with a bit of a bit, though crispness isn't especially sharp.
It may be a BA misclassification, but if this is out there in the same market as Negro Modelo, and they're going to claim the same style, this one might as well not even be out there at all. Negro isn't great beer, but it's respectable, as opposed to this beer.

1.9/5  rDev -34.7%

A: Pours a clear, very light amber color. A small head formed but lasted only a few seconds.

S: Not much on the aroma, a little off putting skunkiness and slightly metallic.

T: Not much going on here, slight malt/caramel presence, but barely. There just isn't much to this beer at all.

M/D: Extremely thin, some carbonation.

Super high carbonation makes this really crisp, but the body is more watery than water itself. This is a really thin beer. One of the worst Mexican beers I have had. If you want something in this style in Mexico grab a Bohemia or a Negra Modelo.

Appearance - Pours a clear, beautiful pure golden amber with a white, finger width head. Retention is subpar, leaving behind a razor thin, somewhat sticky lace.

Smell - Lightly toasted grains, grassy and with hints of honey.

Taste - Follows the nose. Lightly toasted grain malt, followed up with a decent grassy hop and a hint of honey that develops about mid-taste and rides out to the finish. Light, crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with a nice, aggressive carbonation kick. Tingles the lips and nibbles at the tongue. Goes down smooth and quite drinkable.

Overall - One of the better beers to come out of Mexico. It's not a lager that'll blow anyone's socks off, but the flavors are fine and it's got a great mouthfeel. This one doesn't need the "lime" treatment.

3.08/5  rDev +5.8%

Pours an amber color with a clear body.. got about a 1 n half finger head.. tight white bubbles.. settles to a thin film.

S: light breast notes.. sweet malts pull through.. maybe a tinge of earthiness.. also some faint cooked corn.. very faint aroma but not offensive..

T: sweet malts & bready notes upfront.. some cooked corn on the mid palate .. finish is earthy with a slight bitterness to wash it all down.. not bad .

Mf: thin bodied with a crisp feel...

O: very drinkable & not a bad brew.. needs some tacos to go with it..
