Clear dark gold, white head.
Smells like a euro-lager, grainy, biscuit, slightly floral.
Tastes mostly of malted barley, just a slight adjunct sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium, has a mostly dry finish.
I was very hesitant to buy this but am glad I did.

From a quart bottle best by Jan 2024. Clear golden color with a thin layer of white head. Straw and grainy smell with some caramel. Medium body, heavier than many Mexican lagers. Caramel and a funky corn note followed by floral and grassy bitterness. Actually not bad. Yes, it's a macro and the corn adjunct is a love-it-or-hate-it thing.

Poured from 16oz can into a tumbler.

Appearance: light golden hue with no haze and a ton of effervescence. Head is a finger of white foam that dissipated quickly.

Smell: malty and grainy, with a rather a bit of adjunct character. Not awful, but not great either.

Taste: adjuncts, malt, almost a little sourness. Honestly it’s not wonderful.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a reasonable carbonation. Not really creamy, but it’s fine.

Overall: there are worse macro lagers out there, but this isn’t a wonderful beer.

Poured from a 32oz bottle best by Apr 2023

On the pour a 3 finger white head forms with some light fizziness. After a while the head dissipates to a more fizzy rocky 1 finger head. Fine plentiful carbonation in a golden yellow body. For the style head retention is pretty nice.

Aroma is old and almost skunky in the hops. Corn is present and lager character is quite present. A very "mexican" import aroma. Despite that it is full bodied while maintaining a lighter and refreshing presence. High carbonation while still being quite smooth and a nice dinner beer.

Overall this is pretty good, but there are a few off notes, traditional cervesa corny flavors and a bit of that corona like skunk, but a bit more rich and sweet than a lot of light Mexican beers.

Taste is light and "cervesa" like with the skunky off note gone on the palate almost entirely until there is a faint note of it on the very end. The main flavor of this is corny crackery malts with a slight sweetness. This beer is not very bitter but would be quite good on a beach with canitas tacos and lime.

Feel is bigger than a lot of other pale Mexican lagers. Decently long finish from the malt and somewhat full bodied while maintaining

I had this beer with some pasole at Gabriel’s near Santa Fe. Poured from a bottle into a tall half pint glass. Clear yellow color with a good white head with decent lacing. Faint hint of corn in the smell and taste. A bit of citrus. Not much taste overall. Just thought I would give it a try.

I have to admit, it went down nicely on a hot Baja afternoon, but really, nothing but a refresher.

This is like the miller of Mexico. Miller light. It's definitely corny, slightly sweet, much lighter than you would expect. I mean that's all there is to say. Without the import markup it would be right next to the cans of light and ice beer we know and love. It's fun to explore new stuff that rolls in to the gas station, but if it's rollin in there I really shoulda known better
