look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

This one was floating in the fridge for a while so in honor of my recent Mexico trip and NBS, thought it would be time.

A: Pale pee yellow with no head and/or lacing.

S: Smells like a macro, a little extra in terms of skunkiness here. maybe age didnt do it wonders.

T: Corn and a horrific light beer. This makes miller lite taste great.

M: Over carbonated and poppy like a soda.

D: Worst light beer Ive ever had. Strongly prefer Miller, Hein and esp Sam Adams. This was flat out bad.

¡Salud! (With something else, please, because last night was the first AND last time I had this one).

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A classic mexican pilsner brewed by mexican macro giant Grupo Modelo.

Color: Yellow pale with very low head retention and low lace formation lace. Pours very bad out of the bottle.

Aroma: Faded aromas of dry malts and hops.

Taste: Semi-dry malts and some hops. Nothing much interesting. Average mexican macro lagger

Finish: Dry finish with bitter aftertaste, some metallic notes and aftertaste.

I drank this from a bottle into a pint glass in Puerto Vallarta.

This is beer is medium clear gold with a about a finger of head. Retention is lacing decent lacing.

The aroma is light with hops, and the taste is the same. There is a light bitter taste that is unpleasant and detracts from its drinkability. Corona or Pacifico are a better option.

Pours a poor looking light golden straw color with a thick white head and a little bit of lacing. Smells of grain and a little sweet corn. Tastes of sweet corn and a little tad of hop extract (you know its not real) and was pretty nasty. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Drinkability is poor.

Reviewed from notes.
Can of 355 ml, ABV is only 2.9%.
Colour is golden yellow with a one finger head that disappeared rather quickly. I have yet to find a mexican beer with a head that lasts half a minute.
Very bad aroma, I thought I was smelling my feet while I was drinking it.
Taste is better but nothing obviously traceable.
Really thin on the body with very light carbonation.

A lot like regular only thinner, along with malts and a beery finish. Was expecting it to be very light but drinkable and that pretty much sums it up.
