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.

For what it is its not a bad beer .. Smooth and drinkable as any of the other Mexican adjunct lagers..

I would drink this again.

I stand corrected.....I recently rated Dos Equis as the worst tasting Mexican import beer out there. This is worse.

Can.

A: Grain, with a trace of corn with almost no perceivable hops in the aroma.

A: Light straw color, totally clear with a thinnish, uneven white head.

T: Fairly crisp, light grain, with a bit of corn sweetness, faint hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Light bodied with a lightly watery mouth-feel

O: As a light lager, it's a bit subpar, because the beer lacks much aroma and flavor. However, the lack of hops and overall clean and relatively crisp character, make the beer an excellent platform for creating an “instant gose” with a touch of lime juice and salt, increasing the drink ability considerably.

I like it. Sometimes it can be hard to find for a gas station beer, but I'll get it from time to time when available.
