Notes: Mexican Style Lager

Our core classic. A crisp, clean, massively refreshing Mexican lager with subtle notes of flaked corn. Limitlessly crushable, beyond satisfying.

A: Pours a relatively clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to a handful of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering approximately 80% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of cereal grain + pale malts with moderate amounts of corn adjunct sweetness. Light to moderate aromas of lager yeast. Light aromas of grassy + spicy + citrus/lemon hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of cereal grain + pale malts with moderate amounts of corn adjunct sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of lager yeast as well as some light presence of Belgian yeast (phenols and spiciness) as it warms up. Finally there are light flavors of grassy + spicy + citrus/lemon hops which contribute light amounts of bitterness which fade away leaving a relatively clean finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with a light amount of softness mid-body and a relatively clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and enough crispness to be enjoyable though I’m not as excited as much by the slight softness that comes out as the beer warms. The corn adjuncts work well in this beer but I found the hint of Belgian yeast as it warms up a little off-putting.

Light amber body, crystal clear; dense carbonation presence; thin yet lasting head, semi-creamy and white. Rich, grainy aroma; toasted grain and roasted corn. The taste follows along with the smell; lightly roasted malts and adjuncts; light bitterness. Medium body; crisp with a nice warm overtone.

This is a very nice adjunct lager. The corn component is noticeable yet fits in nicely with the overall smell and taste of the beer. The beer delivers a low-key grainy sweetness with a subtle hop bitterness. Well-rounded and tasty.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Thin one or two finger head forms on the beer before dissipating. No residual head remains. Aroma has notes of corn, sweet malts, a touch of lemon. Very straightforward, simple profile.

Taste follows the nose with notes of white bread, corn flakes, some light lemon and lemon grass notes and a rather noticeable yeast note. Feel is light to medium bodied, pretty crisp, with prickly carbonation.

Overall it is a nice Mexican lager, but at the price point ($20+ a 4-pack) it would in no way replace any of the cheaper imports.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a tulip style glass; no production information.
A: Pours a hazy, more straw than golden color with a short-lived, but frothy, one to two finger white head, no even rim retention, and virtually no lacing
S: Aromas wet hay, barley and corn grains, white pepper and hot pepper. Certainly seems spicy.
T: Dry. Palate follows the nose closely. Bitterness strong, with a peppery and subtle hot, tingly sensation on the palate, and leaving a generally crisp, slightly ready finish.
M: Light bodied with light carbonation overall.
O: I am not sure how this constitutes a Mexican Lager, let alone a "Light" lager. Definitely flavorful and hits most of the desirable notes. A little heat could be consistent with an adjunct, but that could just be suggestion.
Postscriptum: looks like I was lucky to get a good can.

16oz can with a date

Very grainy and bitter, and it bears repeating because those are the two main takeaways. Lemon, sweet malt, chewy. This isn't clean and crisp like the style, it's really more of a pale ale or American style lager

As it warms there is a delicious biscuity malt flavor that emerges, makes it a 5/5 in the taste category. Very delicious

I've had a couple cans of this and they vary wildly in flavor. Nail down that malt flavor and I'd buy this 'Mexican Lager' as an everyday drink

Can from Sprayberry June 2020

How do you mess up a Mexican lager? Really poor beer both in execution of style and enjoyability. The first few sips are fairly standard crisp lager quaffing, as the beer warms (as in after 5 mins) it becomes a huge mess of belgio-wine clovey sweetness. Lost all snap and cleaness you expect in a lager. Do not seek out.
