look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

straw golden, short lasting white head, no lacing.

aroma and flavor = grainy with plenty of DMS... light hoppiness is way background... a bit of bitterness up front.

still pretty drinkable... Doubt I would buy again except when drinking with work buddies and making fajitas (again).

Looks thin, pale yellow with a weird almost electric tint, and little head.

Smells bread like with lots of skunky smells coming immediately out when I opened the bottle.

Tastes better than the smell indicates. Bread like, a bit malty, with little sweetness or bitterness.

Feels thicker than I thought it would.

Really a drinkable beer and I'm glad to have had it, but it's nothing to seek out.

Poured this German style pilsner from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pint glass. Poured a amber color, produced a off white head, decent retention and lacing left on the glass.
A foundation of sweet malted grain makes for a nice balance with the spicy hops. Well balanced and has some flavor. Not a bad choice if your looking for a Mexican beer to pair with some spicy food.

A- Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head that lingers. Good lacing.

S- Not much to speak of here. I will say that i was in a Mexican restaurant with a lot going on making it difficult to pick up on the aroma. There was certainly no astringent aroma like I usually get with most Mexican beers. I did detect some sweetness and grain.

T- Much better than I expected. Too accustomed to the poor beers that I get at Mexican restaurants like Corona or Tecate. Sweet biscuiy taste foward, hop finish. A nice bite of hops that was quite a delightful surprise. Very smooth. Nice balance

M- Light body, clean and refreshing. Perfect carbonation.

O- By far the best Mexican option IMO. A really nice effort on a German Pils. Will be my go to beer when I am eating spicy Mexican food. The sweetness of this beer really suits well with the spice.

The best of the mass-produced Mexican beers, for sure ... a vienna? lager/ pilsener in style (lots of Germans migrated to Mexico, back in the days... thus , the blonde haired/blue-eyed Mexican folks ...)
A nice elegance? / soul that is usually missing from other cheapy macro-swill brews ... A decent smooth body and finish that doesn't assault your taste buds or sensibility as much as uber-hopped west coast style ales will do . (aint nobody got time for that...)
Ideal for basic Mexican cuisine (or any spicy food) .
has recently (2015) become my go-to 'cheap' beer when I don't want to spend more than $25/case . hits all the right notes in my mouth and won't crunkify you too much even if you have a couple too many ... ( can you say session beer ? )
