Not like Corona extra. Picked up a six of this in Playa del Carmen. Neat little barrel shaped bottles. Wish it was imported to the states. Pours a bit darker than the Corona we are brain washed to drink. Smells and tastes NOT of a skunked beer(Corona itself) but a pleasant malty balance. A bit heavier on taste which makes it all the more appealing. If they could have this on tap, it would be a big hit here. Great vacation beer or any time of year brew. Wish I had some more but will have to wait till my next Mexican vacation.

S- Sweet and slighty grainy.

T-Sweet And refreshing.

M- Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O- Not a bad beer, very refreshing.

This beer is actually better than I was expecting. It's nothing special, but better than most adjunct beers.

3.15/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 325mL bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: light golden hue with a completely clear body and a thin layer of white foam which dissipated quickly. Par for the style.

Smell: light, clean malt hue. Free of major flaws and, while quite light, does not reek of adjuncts like corn or rice. Decent.

Taste: light malt; not particularly sweet and a little bit grainy. At 3.6%, it's hard to have much of a flavor, especially for the style. Bitterness is low but perceptible.

Mouthfeel: light in body but quite effervescent, leaving a pleasing if evanescent creaminess. I like it.

Overall: quite refreshing and drinkable, this is turning into a nice session beer during my Mexican adventure.

325ml round stubby poured into pint glass 28/8/12

A clear pale yellow with lots of tiny bubbles but just a thin soapy film that gone in seconds and leaves no lace

S wet cardboard, rice cake and a little skunk

T not as much skunk but nothing too write home about, lack of flavor may not be a bad thing for this one

M very thin and airy, I think theres more flavor on the finish then while drinking it

O perhaps a safe alternative to the tap water here in Mexico, I think the tap water might have more flavor however

one and done, even in this unbearable heat this wasen´t very good it was the round stubby bottle that grabbed my attention

A good Mexican beer. I love the bottle. Feels like your holding a hand grenade. The taste was very similar to a corona. It does not give much of a head when poured, but this is common to Mexican lagers. Overall, this beer is very drinkable and is really good for parties that you would invite unseasoned beer enthusiasts. Cheers!!!

2.65/5  rDev -8%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

ABV 3,6%
bottle 325ml
Pours a very light yellow colour beer with a froathy two finger head that disappears until you leave your bottle down.
Bad smell, smells as really old dried beer on your t-shirt would smell.
Nothing great on taste too, very flat taste with a trace of lemons and metallic too. Enjoyable though.
On the body is thin with average carbonation.
Overall I think it would make a great party beer, is cheap and enjoyable. Based on that, I'll give it an overall mark of 3.

The positive - an interesting, rounded-stubby bottle. The negative - pretty much everything else. Staying at a resort that only had Corona on tap and this in the room mini-fridge, and it made the Corona look good in comparison. Sharp, acidic malt up front, drying with strong corn notes. A bit chalky at the finish with some raw grain notes. It was a bit of a struggle to get it down, even well chilled.
