Reviewed from notes - had this beer while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a glass.

Apperance - Straw yellow (what else?) with just a film of head. Lots of visible carbonation.

Smell - There's a bit of corn, but nothing else. Very unimpressive.

Taste - I get smacked on the front of my palate with a strong corn taste which isn't all that pleasing. There's almost nothing else to this beer - 95% of the taste is on the front end and the rest is like water.

Mouthfeel - Like carbonated water.

Overall - Ugh. Avoid if at all possible.

I thought it tasted like egg yolk with a very weird taste and smell. I'll just finish my six pack and never buy this again.

Not a fan of pilsners, but it is what it is, not bad but not good either. Refreshing beer, hoppiness and bitternes makes it very sessionable, great in southern mexico, but as it is shipped to the north it loses character.

This is just average for the style, better than most beers from Mexico. The head is nice and white, and faded quickly, there is descent lacing, the finish is slightly off putting, but it is better than Corona. I would not by this again

S: Corn, some grain, a mineral note.

T: Very little flavor, some corn grain, a slight apple.

F: Light Crisp, highly carbonated.

O: All these light lagers taste the same.

From a 12oz bottle - My bottle says 4.5% and it clearly tastes like one and not a 6% as stated here.

A: Clear see thru light yellow w/ medium carbonation
S: not impressed; it has LIGHT BEER written al over it.
T: bitter, corn, foamy.
M: watery.
D: You can have this to win a beer-bong competition, it really goes down easily.

I was pretty disappointed with this beer, probably because I had some expectations to it. Believe it or not most of my mexicans friends do not now the existence of this beer.

This one will go down as a memory of life since i'll never ask for this one again.

Pours a darkish yellow with good clarity. Average head, weak lacing.

Smell is grainy and slightly grassy. Aroma is a bit stale and even a tad sour. Not very inviting.

A fair amount of malt flavor gives way to a rather unpleasant finish and aftertaste with a bit of unpleasant sourness. I have a feeling this is well past its prime. Overly carbonated; too sharp and biting. Slick and wet mouthfeel. Kind of gross.

If this is really a Czech Pilsener than it is a rather poor example. Stick to the Vienna lager style if you want a Mexican beer.
