One of the 1001 Beers you must taste before you die -- #31 of the ones I've reviewed here.

I confess I rather like this beer -- I think it's sort of underrated. Not great, not by any means, but certainly underrated.

It has an absolute perfect appearance, a very nice reddish brown that leans maybe a hair more red than other mahogany brews, I'm not sure I've ever seen any other beer with quite this color. The nose and taste is nothing overwhelming special, a little sweet malt, although I like it at least as much as Sam Adams Boston Lager, say. I think the mouthfeel on this is particularly nice, it's very light and effervescent, which sort of works against the color and style but does add a level of refreshment to this which I think is quite nice.

I don't want to oversell this, it's no classic. But I do think it's better than the general run of Mexican beers, at least the ones you can easily get in the states, and I do recommend it.
