Superior is a pale yellow with almost no carbonation. The "head" consists of a tiny layer of bubbles which soon disappear. The aroma is barely there, just as faint whiff of corny sweetness. The taste isn't too bad, just a straight-forward adjunct sweetness, without any really offensive elements. This isn't too bad, but this has only one dimension: macro sweetness. Anyway, at the right place and time, namely on vacation in Mexico, I could put back quite a few of these.

Superior 4.6% has a thin, white head, a clear, straw appearance, with lots of fairly large white chunks, suspended, throughout. Lots of glass lacing left behind. The aroma is of a sharp spice note, of some sort and a strange green apple or grape skin smell. Taste is somewhat muted, but one will pick up that odd grape or apple thing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Superior Original finishes crisp and easy going. RJT

12 oz bottle brought back from the Mayan Riviera by my sister-in-law, thanks! Pours a very clear light gold color with a stark white foam that fades away pretty quick. Does leave a fat collar and a few specks of lace on the glass.

Nose is quite fruity for a light lager, green apples and starfruit. Honey drizzled grits served on a cardboard platter make up the grain portion of the aroma. Not a very good smelling brew.

Has a decent amount of flavor for a beer of only 3.6%, problem is the flavor is not terribly appealing. Fruitiness still there in the flavor a little bit. Grainy malty notes are actually not too bad and there even manages to be a hint of hops in the finish. Not a bad AAL, and I could put back a few of these beachside.

Had this brew in a number of places while on vacation, both Progreso and Cozumel Mexico. This brew poured to a very pale yellow, reminiscent of many American Micro’s with a white head that breaks down quickly and left hardly no lacing. Flavors and aroma’s are similar to American Macro’s but for some reason I did not mind this brew, probably because if was 90+ out and it was just a relaxing environment. Lots of rice and corn used in this product with some malt and a little hop. Would not get this brew back home unless it was for Cinco de Mayo, etc. Funny thing about this is when we went snorkeling the people that ran the excursion where saying how great this beer is, much better than Corona. . . well maybe, they both are pretty weak!

Also I believe that the ABV was 4.5% but I am not possitive.

By the liter bottle on the HOT, 35 C, days at the hawkwatch in Cardel, Veracruz.

A- The average gold yellow one expects from a macrolager. Thin white head, very effervesant.

S- Grainy malt / straw...not much else.

T- Light and unoffensive. Some aftertaste of corn....very "fizzy".

M- Crisp, light and fizzy....almost no body to speak of. Basically an alternative to water.

D - A beer you have to drink with a certain mindset...I am drinking this to cool myself down and "enjoy" a beer. Nothing else....simple, clean and crisp...certainly fresh tasting and better than Corona!

Can of 355ml, bought at the local Oxxo, I would prefer the bottle but then I would have to buy a package of six of a beer I don't know. So, this can should do it for this review.
Light yellow colour, a bunch of bubbles and a two finger head that lingers for a while, but only because I poured it so.
Aroma is of malts (?) or corn, certainly doesn't stink that much of corn.
Nice taste, although nothing obviously traceable, it is not bitter, it is not sweet, just ..neutral.
Medium carbonation and medium thickness.
Overall, the most average beer I've drunk till now in Mexico, if you find yourself there and don't know which beer to choose, this is your safiest option.

Pours light clear golden with quick head changing to a thin layer and little lace. Light malt and herbal hop aroma. Weak malt flavort. Hop bitterness also weak. The light body lends this brew a decent drinkability and finishes clean and just slightly sweet and bready taste.

This was my "decompression" beer while exploring the cenotes and caves of Quintana Roo, Mexico in the late 80's and 90's. So much better after diving 6hrs and hauling out of the jungle. You can't go back ... just memories. Carpe Diem

Superior is an average lager, ABV is 3.6.

Pours a very light golden color, Little lace, Smells some corn, Flavor is of grain and wheat, Mouthfeel is watery and thin. Drinkability is good.

I think almost all american macros are good for those hot days.

Salud !

Pours a golden yellow color with a small amount of white head.

The scent is mostly of yeast and a hint of fruit.

This tastes mostly of yeast with some grains and corn, also some biscuity hopp.

Pretty light feel, a little watery with pretty good carbonation.

Very drinkable. This is almost as good as the Sol, it just has a little too much yeast. But this is a decent refreshing beer. I would probably buy this if it was available in my area.
