12oz : pint glass

Clear amber brown with a fizzy, off white head.

Toasty, caramel malts. Very faint, if any, grassy/grainy hops.

Medium body, fizzy carbonation.

I went into this not knowing what to expect, as most Mexican beers are fairly forgettable, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It is a well done, easy drinking lager with a pleasant flavor profile.

Pours a brilliant light brown with a modest cream head that dissipates quickly to nothing.

Caramel, nutty malt reigns the aroma. Hints of diacetyl are evident. Hip character is minimal.

Toffee and butterscotch rule the flavor, very sweet, with toasted, nutty malt notes finishing slightly fruity.

Body and carbonation are moderate.

Diacetyl bomb, but flavorful malt character. It's on the sweet side, and the nutty notes make it appealing.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a cola color with a modest layer of foam. Spotty bubbles that don't really lace.

Smells of sweet grains, a gentle toast, adjunct malts, and a bottom layer of soggy brown bread.

Dries up a little bit. Semi-sweet grains with a cereal note, barley malt, some corn, faint earthy bitterness, traces of hops, and some dark breadiness. Not a bad Euro Lager.

Drinks okay. Easy to work down. Carbonation is mild to medium. The body is pretty boring.

I'm 1,300 reviews in, and this is my first Mexican beer. Beers like this substantiate why.

Pored from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours semi transparent reddish amber with a small head that dissipates quickly. Smells of smells of some decent grain, a little fruitiness. Tastes of some fruitiness with caramelized grain, very nice. Beer is light bodied a tad heavily carbonated but it is very drinkable. Overall a good beer.

A: A clear gingery copper colour with a mushroom coloured head.

S: Smells like slightly metallic lager.

T: Pfft. Grainy, mellow and not bitter. Not perfectly dry. A hint of caramel and walnut but more so in the finish, which is otherwise pretty clean. Now it has warmed up there's a smidgen of citrus in the aftertaste and also some corn snacks.

M: Soft effervescence and almost creamy.

O: Cleaner and tastier than your average macro lager.

Nondescript brown. 1/4" head fades fairly quickly with no lacing.

Faint odor hard to place (our pourer said "caramely").

Starting cold it had a very subdued flavor (almost flavorless?) up front with a strong malty finish. As it warmed up the flavor started to show more and it "stings" the tongue a little instead of just rolling down.

Surprisingly not bad and a _lot_ better as it warms. We wouldn't buy it but we'd certainly drink it over a lot of other things we've tasted.
