Aroma and flavor is malts, mild caramel and a smooth/slightly beery finish. Not bad, rather forgettable but that's not necessarily bad, definitely not nasty.

Terrible smell, taste is tasteless--almost water, but grassy--which is better than it being offensive. A beer worthy of the funnel. Best for mindless Cancun shagdrunkfests for herp-derp tourists.

Had this while in Mexico. Smoother than some of the other Mexican macros, much more flavor than Corona. Great on a hot day on the Mayan Riviera.

Serving Type: 355 mL Bottle

A- Pours a golden yellow colour topped by a thin head. No lacing.

S- Lots of malt and that's about it. Slight corny sweetness.

T- Malt. Malt. Corn. Malt. Maybe Rice?

M- High Carbonation. Weak Body. Tons of big CO2 bubbles are visible. Reminiscent of a soft drink.

O- Superior is not a great tasting beer by any of my standards but it isn't bad under a hot Mexican sun. It's certainly better than Corona and doesn't warrant a lime.

Brought this back from a recent trip to the Mayan Riviera. This was one of the beers in the room along with Dos Equis.

Appearance: It has a clear pale yellow color to it. It has a thin white head that dies down quickly and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas give out hints of grainy malts, corn and light bread. Not a whole lot going on here.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy malts, light bread and corn.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a very light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by bland flavors and aromas. Pretty tasteless.

Serving type: bottle

1.2L bottle bought from the tienda across the street from the hotel.

A- Slight red/ruby color. Thin head.

S- Nothing really.

T- Light. Not too "fizzy".

M- Crisp, light and fizzy....almost no body to speak of.

D - better than Corona and other typical MX beer found north of the border.
