I don’t know if it’s the lack of options at the all inclusive I’m staying in Cancun, that and the fact that everything I’ve had so far is pretty bad, nevertheless, I feel like I finally hit the mini jackpot.
Pours a clear dark amber/brown color. Modest head quickly dissipates; a thin ring of lacing remains.
The nose is nothing special. Although it is mostly clean, I do get faint caramel malt, dark toasted bread and even a hint of citrus. On the downside, there is a bit of a metallic aroma.
The taste is it’s best attribute. Bready and toasty with a caramel malt sweetness that lingers nicely in the finish. A modest touch of hops provide flavors of dry tea leaves and modest bitterness.
Medium to light bodied albeit a bit thin. Clean, balanced; my favorite part is the sweet and creamy finish.
A decent lager that pairs well with Mexican food.

I use to drink this all the time when I started out drinking beer. Now I find it overly malty, heavy, and with little else going for it. Still, it was nice revisiting if only for the trip down memory lane.

Decent Mexican lager, nothing special. Better alternative to domestic lager.

This is an ok selection at a wing place that doesn't have much to choose from.

Drank from tap at a restaurant. Thin watery typical to AAL, but they call this an amber lager. It may be endorsed by the most interesting man in the world, but definitely not the most interesting beer in the world, or Mexico for that matter. Not impressed.
