I truly believe there are different beers for different occasions. So when I rate Barrilito overall as a 3.00, I do so visualizing a sunny day, a sandy beach, warm blue water and a bucket of ice filled with bottles of Barrilito.

Cool, crisp, and refreshing, Barrilito is light with a carbonated and clean finish that won't weigh or slow you down. You can swim, play volleyball and toss down a few of these with absolutely no consequences. This is a beer for an active lifestyle.

Wanna keep things light and easy? This is your beer. Want depth, flavor and "feeling", there are more substantial Lagers to choose from.

Curiously shaped bottle poured into a mug in Cabo San Lucas. A pale straw color with a surprisingly robust creamy white head of three fingers height. Low ABV and flavor make me think this is really a light lager but I suppose most beers in Mexico fit that description anyhow. In an ocean of grainy off-notes, cooked corn flavors and manic carbonation, this one comes off as classy, clean, and well-crafted if still fundamenally lacking in the character department. There's a slight buttered popcorn flavor and a whiff of grassy hops, no skunky reek or strong DMS, maybe this one is TOO clean. Mellow sweetness persists into the finish. Typically thin and watery. In any event, nothing offensive per se and refreshing under the right circumstances.

This light tan beer produced very little head and it carried a light hoppiness on the nose. It was actually quite refreshing that finished fairly clean. Loved the water balloon shaped bottle that fit perfectly in your hand. I did pour it in a glass when I did a tasting on the beach but also drank on back straight out of the bottle. Just had to.

Barrilito has a thick, white head, a clear, bubbly (etched glass), straw appearance, with visible white particles roiling about, and some decent lacing strips left behind. The aroma is of sweet, lightly-roasted malt, and the flavor is the same, with some very low level hop note at the end. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Barrilito finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and highly drinkable. This comes across more like a light beer than a regular beer. No bad notes, though.

A- Clear golden yellow with a quickly dissipating head.

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.

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
