12 ounce bottle into lager glass; bottled on 9/2/2016, best before 9/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with solid strength. Taste of big cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/clean, bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a delicious pale lager style. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Clean pils malts with balancing earthy noble hop flavors. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. More hop presence than most imports.

This is probably my favorite Mexican beer. Give it a try if you can find it. Pretty balanced if not a little on the fizzy side. Flavor is not overly malty.

I had one of these recently at the FGBS & I was so impressed that I bought another bottle to bring home with me for review.

"From the bottle: "Est. 1905"; "[undersigned] Maestro Cervecero".

I Pop!ped the cap & began a gentle pour into the awaiting glass. My next move was a vigorous in-glass swirl to raise two-plus fingers of rocky, foamy, bone-white head with limited retention. Color was solid Gold, prompting a return visit from The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus, all vying for a taste. Nose was more malty than hoppy, but it was clearly clean & adjunct free. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not much beyond it, either. The taste was lightly malty, not overly sweet, but definitely more towards a GER Pils than a CZECH one. Finish was semi-sweet, again, not overdoing it on the malt, but very refreshing. Jeez, Louise, I sucked down over half of it without a thought. Do they CAN this?

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of lightly grainy biscuit malt and grassy hops, a hint of lemon. Flavor is mellow, semi-sweet biscuit malt, grassy hops. Finishes with light, dry grassy hops and mildly sweet biscuit malt. Medium bodied with a slight creaminess that is much appreciated. An understated, but nicely balanced light pilsner. The malt body is reminiscent of an adjunct lager, but the overall taste is like a hybrid between an adjunct lager and a very light pilsner. Not up to German pilsner standards, but nice tasting and refreshing, mellower, but faithful hops for the style. One of the better light Mexican lagers.

This is one of the better beers from Mexico. Pours a slightly darker golden color, with a finger of off white head. The is a slight hint of lemon on the finish. Depending on the glass used will determine the amount of lacing. Overall worth a try.

Pours a clear pale yellow. Smells of malts, zest, and some grass. Tastes of malt, pepper, and grass. Medium-light body and carbonation. Overall it's a good beer, better than many other mass produced Mexican beers.

I've been drinking Mexican beer for 46 years. I recall that Bohemia is often highly rated. I like the other beers from this brewery, but to me, this stuff is burro urine. Of course it's very drinkable on hot days when you're out of another awful Mexibeer such as Sol.

It looks like beer, it smells like beer, sort of, but its taste is weak....not even a nice amount of fresh lime helps much....but it does feel like beer....That its ABV is 5.3% vs the 4.5% of most Mexican beers is a good thing. The bottles are attractive.

I've visited Cabo for a week in December at least 15 times. I like this beer better down there, but then I'm on vacation. My acceptable Mexican beers include the dreaded Tecate, Modelo Especial (yum), Pacifico, both Dos Equis, Indio, Negra Modello (no I'm not going for the new name)....and yes, I will drink Cabrona, but I try not to jump on that if I have a choice....La Victoria....ahhhh that free happy hour at the Hyatt Cancun Caribe....last but not least Carta Blanca....

It's hot here in the Hollywood Hills..... I'm going upstairs for a cold Warsteiner...jah!

My favorite Mexican beer, so far. A lot of character, a lot of flavor, an incredible beer to pop open on a hot day.
