A good Mexican adjunct light lager. Has decent foamy head, acceptable lacing, tastes like malt, meets a fruity note, with some hop character, has bready notes with a bit of apple notes to finish. A very well made adjunct lager, has a better taste than most of the genre. Is easy to drink when it's hot outside, goes very well with Mexican food, and also quite inexpensive, and a good buy. Overall a 3 score. A favorite hot season beer. A bargain.

(24 oz can, BBD OCT 2018... purchased cold... poured into simple glass mug)

L: brilliantly crystal-clear pale amber liquid; bouncy, tight off-white head, holds fairly long

S: fresh dough, juicy apple; hint of flowery hops (if it isn't just esters)

T: lightly-toasted, lightly nutty, doughy-bready malt; bit of green apple in finish... lingering lightly bitter fruit skin (apple) note... flavor clarity is fuzzy, attack clipped

F: feather-soft, delicately foamy-fluffy, dry drop in finish... little tickle from the bubbles... plush foamy texture dominant

O: second in a short 3-beer series of 24 oz can adjunct lager reviews (preceded by Labatt Blue, followed by Sol)... possibly some German helles sensibilities here - first time drinking this from a glass and it's not all that bad

I had this years and years ago...haven't and wouldn't buy it again now that i appreciate better beer....but recently I had this given to me when I checked in to a hotel after hiking 10 miles in the rain.....so, something to be said for it being situational...but it actually wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I'd take it over any of the cheap American lagers (Bud light, coors).

A big corn taste is in this beer. It taste like they are trying to mask the corn syrup taste with some actual corn added. It's okay but I think Modelo Especial & Corona Familiar are better. Cheers! C

Pours out a clear straw color. The head is white and is gone in a second leaving no lacing.

Smells like metal with a hint of grains and a corn sweetness.

Mostly just corn and pennies in the back. Has a bit of a sourness to it in the back.

Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Might be more tolerable on a hot day.

24 Oz Can poured into a glass
Look - pale looking, light yellow almost straw colored. Decent foam head is slow to fade with some lacing
Smell - Certainly not bad smelling but typical beer aroma. Pick up the grains, malt, sweetness. Nothing off about it and certainly no bitterness detected.
Taste - One thing about the Mexican beers that i think is similar is that the beer is well made, but not much in the way of flavor. If you like beer this is your beer, it tastes like a house beer at a Mexican restaurant. Not too carbonated, Not too sweet, and no bitterness that i can pick up. There is a lingering note of malty grass but that's about the only thing that stands out to me.
I like it, and i like it more than Corona. This good beer gets a grade of B-

Not bad. Though Dos Equis is my favorite Mexican lager. I would get it again. Haven’t been able to find six packs around here. Just twelve packs and 24oz cans. Not offensive at all. Cheers.
