12 oz single from a store. BA seems to dislike lagers in general, so I'm thinking this really isn't all that bad. But who knows. Dark brown bottle on a Mexican import? Hm.

app- Darker than I expected. Tried to get head on a proper pour but nothing doing. What head did appear is white and dissipates quickly. It's a light amber color. Definitely not the yellow of a Corona. This is probably closer to a Negro Modelo. I really like the color on this. Crystal clear with lots of carbonation streaming up from the bottom.

sm- Not too much smell at all. I'm getting some sort of gentle malt. Alcohol. Just the slightest hop that gets lost in the yeasty grain smell. This isn't an adjunct, is it? Sometimes as a new drinker I come from a complex beer and try too hard to get multiple notes from what is a very basic one. I hope I'm not reading smells into this brew. It seems to be extremely simple. Pleasantly so.

tst- No, it's not. I get malt and hops. Like the blueprint of a beer in my pilsner glass. Neither of which make a strong presence here. The prevailing taste is the grainy water.

Mf- It's a mexican lager, therefore it's watery. As I don't like non-light beers that are watery, I don't think it's a great feel. But it's heavier than a corona. Good thing.

You can down a lot of these beers. And it's low alcohol, so you wouldn't even be in trouble. This is probably the idea. I haven't had a Corona or Dos Equis in a long time, so I wouldn't know if this is below or above the standard for this style. It's obviously what they're competing against, and I think they have taken steps to stand out from the crowd. Simplicity, a unique color, and quality ingredients make this something a large crowd can all enjoy. Not so for most other beers. Bravo, Mexico.

Got a 6 pack of bottles of this on a trip to Texas. Drank straight from bottle.

What is to be said? I love Mexican beer - you can never go wrong, as I think they are a step above the macro-brews of the United States. The only downside to that is that they all seem to taste similar.

Not much of an aroma to this one, but nothing that is offending.

Taste has flavor, light hops, light malt, somewhat watery. A light corn aftertaste, not too bad.

This beer is nothing to run home about, but not that bad, something I could drink many of.

29 Jan 2013 and we sail into Huatulco, a purpose built beach resort on Mexico's pacific coast. The beach bar that gets our custom has four beers to choose from, this being the only one I'd never had before.

The weather was hot (92F/44C) and sunny, a light lager was what was needed even if it was only 09.50 in the morning!

This wasn't your usual pale golden colour: this had a deeper hue to it, leaning towards a copper hint to its clear and clean looks (the bright sun light helped to make it look even better), small white head on top.

Grainy nose, but not a lot of anything really.

Refreshing more than tasty: this doesn't have any depth of flavours, it does have traces of hops and malts within but it's supposed to replenish lost liquids in your body not give you a warm, cosy feeling.

OK for what it is.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a amberish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, bready. Taste is very mild, crisp, some grains, not exactly bursting with flavor. Feels light in the mouth and overall is nothing offensive, but rather boring.
