A small white head with fine-large bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was clear with carbonation observed.This beer's hue was yellow-gold and the nose was malty.The flavor was somewhat bitter and lightly hoppy.Its mouthfeel was tingly, thin and light bodied.There was very little lacing with this beer.In my opinion there is nothing that really stood out with this beer and it was rather a boring beer to drink and rate.

Pours an oddly green-tinged yellow, flat top but mega-fizzy. Clear, thin-looking, bland.

Smells revoltingly sweet. Lots of corn grain with brown sugar and little else. Just bland and sweet. While I'm surprised that it has a smell, it's not pleasantly so. It's like when you first discovered Lady Gaga had a penis. It may or may not have been a surprise, but it certainly wasn't a pleasant one.

Taste is less sweet, thankfully. Still mostly bland though - watery on the assault that gets a bit sweet, bordering on malty, towards the mid, a touch of cereal grain on there that becomes slightly tart towards the back. Touch of vanilla late is the most interesting thing, but it can't save an otherwise very bland palate.

Bit of texture on the feel but still pretty thin. Carbonation tingle is not overblown though.

There seems to be a noticeable effort put into this beer that isn't present in most bland Mexican lagers. But it's not enough for me not to lump this in with all the others as uninspiring, insipid swill.

No head to speak of. Color is only slightly darker than ginger ale.

Ho hum hops in the nose, but a bit floral.

Very neutral mouthfeel, not much going on. Tasted better than it looked. Never could pinpoint the floral smell, but you can taste is as well as you can smell it.

Almost no finish to speak of, which is probably a good thing for this dreadful beer.

Drinkable only in the sense that it really doesn't taste like much. This beer almost has to be drank with something else as there is little flavor. Only a dedicated Bud drinker would consider this a "clasica" import.

Pours a light yellow color, nice carbonation, small white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some hops, slight caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, slight hop note. Light body. Not drinkable, would not buy again.

Written From Notes Compiled 6/04-8/04:
Medium gold, small head raises and falls very fast. Skunks grassy malt smell. Flavor has a lot of skunky malt, but also hides a hefe-like banana and clove flavor, also a little metallic. Body is very thin, i could see this crap getting annoying very quickly.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a transparent golden straw color with a minimal foam collar for a head, no real lacing. Smells faintly of generic graininess and some cooked sweet corn adjunct, tastes of the same as well. Body is on the thinner watery side but at least it is smooth and refreshing. Really not all that much superior to BMCs.

Bought a 6 pack of bottles for $6.49 at local Mexican Supermarket.
Poored first one into a 16oz mug , drank second one out of the bottle . The packaging was nice and that was about it while not a offensive tasting beer I felt ripped off after drinking the first bottle no head and very flat.If I had a do over I would take High life or Oldstyle over this.

I had the pleasure of having this one from a bottle.

Poured a light to medium golden color with a small white head. Lightly sweet. No real tastes or smells other than the generic Pale Lager/Pilsner profile (straw, grassy and somewhat corny). Thin and watery.
