This beer is pretty light for a darfker tasting beer. I loved the smell, the taste, everrything about this beer except for the colr. The color isn't as full as it could be. However, I still think this is a great tasting beer that is pleasing to the nose after a sip. I would recommend it to anyone. If you're ever at a mexican restaurant ask your waiter to get you one of these.

Glad to see this correctly listed as a Pilsner now.
Pours a bright golden color with a nice fluffy white head.
Smells surprisingly hoppy and clean. No off smells at all, and the grain smell is inviting.
You can taste the sweet malt up-front, but the noble hops take over in the middle (not too strong) and carry through in the finish. It's not quite as hoppy as a Pils from Germany, but it's not that far. Considering the climate they're brewing for, that's assuredly intentional. I don't really pick up some of the lager yeast flavors that I enjoy (unsweet clover honey) but that's really the only knock on it.
Goes down like water and can be a good food pairing or even just a quencher.
Skip the lime. You'd never put a lime in a Veltins or Bitrburger, right?
My favorite Mexican beer by far. If you have this and Negra Modelo available, you can pretty much skip the other common Mexican beers.

12oz bottle purchased at McKinnon's in Salem. Pours a crystal-clear straw-yellow body with a quarter inch of short-lived head. Biscuit and caramel malts and a touch of hops comprise the very hard-to-detect aroma. Biscuit with a touch of caramel, a slight cooked corn flavor, and just a hint of hops hits the palate initially, but goes away rather suddenly. Aqueous with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. Inoffensive and quaffable, definitely good for a hot day, as it goes down easy and is thirst-quenching. Not sure I'd classify it as a German Pils, since it doesn't quite have the hop presence for it, but as a Bohemian Pils or even and American one, this one passes with flying colors.

Bright gold color. Sudsy falling head. Aromas of clear grain and well-judged hops and husk. The palate features a nice balance of creamy, fine, fizzy texture, malty, medium body and, again, well-judged bitterness. Bright lemon battles with wet earth. Finishes clean and dry. Certainly the best Mexican light lager I can easily get my hands on, and in the more general Austalasian/Helles/Lager category one of the best as well.

A: Moderate Pils malt aroma with some noble hops.

A: Super clear, golden color with a thin amount of head and not much retention.

T: Crisp and slightly bitter with a medium-dry finish. Moderately low maltiness, pretty crisp with moderate hop bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderately high carbonation.

O: For a macro this beer is actually pretty solid. Somewhere between a Viennese lager and a German Pilsner. The beer’s appearance is a bit darker than most Pilsners and is reminiscent of a Viennese Lager. However, the flavor and mouthfeel is more suggestive of a Pilsner

Poured a golden yellow with a light foamy head that dissipated quickly. Bready, light malty aroma, nothing noteworthy. Smooth malty feel and flavor, maybe some breaady flavors with a very faint citrusy finish. Easy to drink but certainly nothing spectacular. If you're looking for Mexican brew it's a nice change from Corona.

Poured a very pale yellow with a fizzy, white head composed of very large bubbles. Smell was off- it seemed sour, stale,and like something unpleasant had been burning (not sure what it was). The taste was harsh and very bitter. I can't tell exactly what was in the taste, but it clashed. No real things I could identify as hops or malt or such. Is it this bad or is this one skunked?
