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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a generic Pils glass.

Brilliantly clear dark orange/copper body with a thin yet lasting off-white yead. Delicate even lacing, no legs.

Clean lager aroma with very faint toastiness.

Pleasing malty palate entry with delicate toasted flavors and very light melanoidins. Use of adjuncts becomes more obvious mid-palate as the desired complexity fails to arrive and is instead replaced by a light mineral-water flavor. Finishes slightly dry and malty with next to no hop presence.

Light bodied, crisp, with zesty carbonation.

Rather watered-down, though clean and straight-forward. Not bad, though rather boring compared to what the style could be...

Review from 7/2011 notes. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber. Thin white head, dissipates quickly, but stays effervescent. Light malt and grain aroma. A standard light sweet malt with light hopping average beer taste. Pleasant, but unremarkable. OK for drinking with Mexican food.

Very poor choice of beer for myself. The color was a simmered brown, taste was completely lacking, not hoppy, nor bitter, nothing - no head at all, light on the carbonation. I felt like I was drinking a beer that just had no heart or soul put into it. sad

Another brew enjoyed off the resort and appears to be a popular choice among locals.

A - Pours a light golden colour, thin layer of head which quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing.

S - Sweet corn dominates with a hint of buttered bread and grainy malts.

T - Again dominated by the sweet corn notes, no real hop notes detectable, and the bready caramel malts linger, though mild in nature.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - Nothing spectacular here, though nothing offensive and I'd certainly recommend this over a Corona Extra. Main downfall is that at 4% this stuff is a bit too close to water. Certainly an option to rehydrate from the hot sun though.

Listed here as a Vienna Lager, but it seemes too light to hit that style. Unimpressive but unoffensive as well. Nice smoothness to the body, and, while there is a distinct corn adjunct note, it also lends a pleasant touch of sweetness and softens the beer. Finish is even, with some lingering corn sugar inflection. One of the better Mexican lagers.

Pours a clear copper with no head at all. Plenty of little carbonation bubbles though.

Aroma is very faint but some caramel, bready malt, and corn.

Flavor is some bready malt along with the same caramel and corn detected in the aroma. Some hay but no real hop flavors. Decent drying bitterness and finishes a lot crisper than Dos Equis.

Overall pretty typical Mexican beer but it isn't bad.
