I prefer bock when it comes to Mexican beers (especially Indio) but Montejo is my favorite lager / pilsner they have south of the border. It's 6% alc. makes it harder as a session beer down here but it's so much better than Corona or even Dos Equis, hopefully they will start exporting it. Try it if you have a chance and enjoy!

This can be very confusing. If you try it like a Czech Pilsener it would be a common beer, but if you try it like a Lager it would get a better score. Unfotunately, beers here are almost all lagers, and if they are not, they are like adapted to lager fans. IT has a strong taste that tells you it is not a lager.

I enjoyed this Czech Pils, I would grade it higher than most Mexican Imports. It compliments the majority of a Mexican Menu.

Oooo, a decent Mexican beer. A bit pale for a pilsener, as it still looks like Corona, but the smell is an acceptable mixture of malt and hop zest. No skunkiness.

Decent taste, a little bit overdone on the malts. Sweet, somewhat syrupy flavour.

A bit too fizzy, overly carbonate. Closer to an American macro in mouthfeel. Drinkable, and very enjoyable. Especially for a Mexican lager.

Decent lager! Nothing special. Buy it when you need something to drink on a not so busy night.

Poured into a Victoria tumbler glass.

Look: Clear golden body with a white head that dissipates completely and leaves no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet on the nose with light grassiness and grains.

Taste: Clean, slightly sweet and metallic.

Mouthfeel: Light, goes down easy.

Overall: Judging this from a snobby glass makes it much less enjoyable than it actually is. Out of the bottle on a Mexican beach, this beer is fantastic. Not so much under my craft snobbery eye.

This beer comes out of its slender silk screened bottle a bright gold color with a patchy head and intermittent lace. The aroma is sweet with a delicate floral hoppiness. The taste is Malty with a bready, yeasty quality. Hop spice is light but balancing. The mouthfeel is medium and almost soapy. The finish is lacking in bitterness.

This is a decent example of a malty pilsner. My bottle said 4.5% so maybe theres a new/different recipe. Way better than Corona and worth a try.

Served to me in a clear, plastic pint glass. I had this on-tap for free at the happy hour at the Embassy Suites hotel my dad and I are staying at in Phoenix, AZ for a few days. This beer is a very clear, light to medium golden color with a white head that is about 1/2 to 2/3 of an inch thick when first drawn and served to me with streams of bubbles rising to the beer's surface up until the last sip. Settles to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with some nice cluster swirls of foam on the beer's surface and pretty decent lacing. Aromas of some corn and some crisp malts and now much else. Has a crisp, somewhat sweet malt presence upfront that gives way to some grains and a faint hint of corn that is rounded out with a slight touch of hops. Not bad, but certainly not great either. One of these was enjoyable and refreshing on an 80 degree evening here in Phoenix, but it is not something I'd go out of my way to drink. Has a crisp, slightly frothy, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. Just a decent beer.

Features a white head over clear straw yellow/golden liquid. Light, clean and lemony/grassy malt nose. Taste is a pleasant sharp, slightly metallic hop not and light maltiness, crisp and quite drinkable. Finishes clean, with a late hop ending, not too bad to enjoy actually.

Montejo pours a clear ambar color with a short head and nice lacing; Smell is floral, hops and yeast; Taste is some fruty; Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and well carbonated; Very drinkable and very refreshing.

I reccomend this beer, Is a good choice for a hot day.

¡Salud!
