The best beer I've found in Cancun, it even has bitterness. I don't know about the vienna lager label on BA. This looks and tastes like a pilsner, say, one from Bohemia. It also reminded me of a less bold version of the Sly Fox Pils. It has a slightly bready flavor with grassy and floral hops. Drinks very crisp and it great for washing down food or just relaxing. Two bottles of this helped me put down 27 jumbo shrimp. Any beer that can do that and taste good is alright in my eyes. Not the best pils, but its in a brown bottle and a good choice is vacationing in Mexico

A favorite of mine when I'm eating Mexican food, however I polished one off a few nights ago after eating Chinese food. Hmmm, there's an idea I should try in the future, crossing one culture's food with another culture's beer. I guess I've done it a few times without ever thinking about it, but how weird would it be to see Tsingtao beer with Italian dishes? Anyways, let's move on and get to this beer:

It's a pale straw color, that pours a nice head, but shrinks considerably after a minute. It has a a nice hop aroma that doesn't leave you gasping for air with caramel notes in the back. The beer's slightly sweet, with a hoppy profile, but not bitter. It's very refreshing and easy to drink, making it a good choice when one is thirsty and doesn't want to drink water. Remember, this is a Mexican beer that's built for easy comsumption. But more importantly, it tastes pretty darn good, and that characteristic puts it above other Mexi-Lagers.

Poured a light straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a grassy and spicy hop with a light grainy malt.

The taste consisted of a clean malt and a surprisingly lively hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style with good carbonation.

Overall a very tasty and hoppy lager. Likely the best offering from south of the border.

From the foil topped 12 fl. oz. bottle . Sampled on February 19, 2013

The pour is pale yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head.

The aroma is of pale German malts, sugar, toast, and a cleanish hop scent.

The body is light to medium and is also rather creamy.

The taste begins with moderate malts and a low to moderate hop bitterness that lingers briefly at the end. I found it to be pretty decent for the style.

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).

This pours an honest clear gold lager. It looks like it should come from Checkoslovakia.

Smell is sweetness, grain and a spicy hop smell. The hops are unmistakably citrus in scent.

Taste is excellent clean grain with a spicy citrus hop flavor. This is one tasty lager! Excellent melding of the citrus hops with the rest of the brew.

Mouthfeel is good.

Super drinkable brew, sad that I avoided tasting this for a long time just because it is a Mexican beer.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a medium white head, fair retention.

S: Pale malt and noble hops, nothing substantial.

T: Bready malt in the background, with a rather strong grassy hop bitterness. I like the strong hop character, and I was surprised how much I liked it the first time I had it.

M: Crisp and smooth, with a bit of biting carbonation, relatively light-bodied.

D: Quite a good Mexican beer at a Mexican restaurant, would defintely have again if I was in that situation.

Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp) a yellow gold with a large head of foam that dissipated fairly quickly leaving a fine layer and some lacing on the side of my glass.

The smell is malty sweet with a slight bitter note.

The taste is a good mix of slightly sweet malt and slightly bitter hop..good balance, in fact, and that makes it a good drinker.

Bottom line: A good Vienna Lager that's worth trying and even buying from time to time.

Pours with a two-finger white head that leaves a some lace. Clear pale amber color. Light bodied and light carbonation. Slightly hoppy nose. Starts slightly on the sweet side and the finish is clean, with no lingering aftertaste. Good session beer. $1.30 for a 12oz. bottle from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY.
