Ordered this while in Mexico and I was just disappointed. Not even the setting of being at a beach restaurant in beautiful Yelapa, Jalisco could make this beer good. Taste was just awful, and very reminiscent of what I imagine urine would taste like. Would not drink this one again.

2009 backlog. Mexican Nite Cerveza Numero Dos! 12 oz bottle. I often hear people talk of this beer and how superior it is to most other Mexican beers. Let’s see how it holds up. Aroma is of an old gym locker, just like the Corona. Another whiff gives off a strong presence of stale cheap adjunct grains, some alcohol. Pale gold hue, with no head, bad lacing. It looks almost identical to the Corona. 1st taste impression: is this Corona bottled in a Tecate bottle? It tastes the same: slightly sweet, watery. A little less carbonation than the Corona, but otherwise pretty much the same beer.

Oddly, this one gets worse as you drink it. At first blush I thought it resembled Old Milwaukee in look and smell (that is a compliment) and actually had a smooth, easy drinking feel to it. About half way through I started to notice a distinctly (ugh) Rolling Rock-ish aftertaste which pretty much diminished the entire experience for me and made this for me a one and done.
