Clear, golden in color with a tall and puffy white head. It is actually a nice-looking brew. The aroma is where it breaks down...a bit of sulfur, some grain, a bit of vegetable, and distant spice. The taste is lightly malty...again, some spice, and a little sweetness. Medium in body...somewhat of a salty(?) finish. The beer is more interesting than an average macro, but isn't good, by any measure.

Served in a massive goblet dressed with lime and salt. Fizzy head dwindles to patchy lace. Murky golden straw color.

Nose has some crisp hop, mostly overpowered by dressing (lime/salt may be frowned on for that reason, but have you tried it without?).

Taste has that nice noble hop crisp in full without overpowering. Barley, some corn characteristics, suggestive of its make, perhaps.

Mouth is bigger than expected, and a tad dry.

One of the more refreshing cervezas, one that might actually be enjoyable without dressing. Better than Corona is really the only bar there is.

Even though it comes in a dark brown bottle this is still a yellow pilsner at heart. Usual appearance despite the dark color bottle, soft 1/3" white head on top. Heartier than most Mexican beers. Aroma was maize, you call it corn.

Taste is definitely above average from this region and style. Good hop zip, noble. Listen pilsen malt, not really much in the way of lager sweetness from the yeast. At a Mexican restaurant, this and negra modelo are probably your best choices.

Certainly the best Mexican beer I've had...if there's corn in it, it's little enough for the brew to remain crisp enough to feel like a German pilsner.

If it's a choice between Corona and this - go with this one every time. Cheaper too!

Look of a murky pilsner, golden. Not much of a smell. Taste of sheves of wheat and barley. In the mouth it is full bodied. I like craft beer best, yet this commercial from south of the border is decent.
