Vacationing at an all inclusive in Cancun, it seems all they have are Mexican macro lagers. At least it’s free!
Pours a yellow straw, almost piss water look. A tiny wisp of head dissipates at the snap of a finger.
Aromas are perceived as mainly sweet, consisting of cereal grain and corn adjuncts. There is also a lime zest thing going on.
The taste has a grainy and corn adjuncts sweetness. Very light grassy hops bitterness.
Light bodied with a carbonation that is spritzy at first, but, unfortunately dies out midway.It has a wet finish, neither as crisp or as dry as I would like, and, again, there is that odd lime taste.
This turned into a bit of chore to drink. I actually wish it was a bit more on the flavorless side, because the lime and corn adjunct flavors bothered me. It was pretty bad. Will have to move on to Dos Equis Amber next.

Yes...it’s better than corona...no your tastebuds won’t suddenly regain life. It’s best served with hot and spicey Mexican food. More body than corona so at least your drinking a little more than water.

This is a nice refresher for the summer but thats it, smells close to nothing and tastes almost like nothing. Closer to water than an actual lager. It is smooth however, so that is a positive. Good for beginner beer drinkers or for when its super hot in the summer. Not a good winter brew thats for sure.

Actually one of my favorite Mexican beers. ALWAYS BUY GREEN AND CLEAR BOTTLE BEER IN THE CANS, though (forgive the shouting) if you want a good one. Nice clean taste.

Don’t get the appeal! Must be the advertising!

This is a fine lager when ur at a restaurant watching the game or something but it's just ok really. Nothing too bad and it goes down fine. But nothing to rave about either. it's kinda the definition of "meh".
