HUGE thanks to biegaman for bringing this to the tasting on Cinco de Mayo, everybody knows my favourite style is a light Mexican lager!

Pours a clear yellow/straw, no head, no lace, pretty damned ugly, even for macro lager standards. Smell is apple juice, citrus, musty rubber hose goodness, nice! Taste is very bland, honey, some corn, DMS, citrus, weak finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied, medium carbonation, very watery. Thanks Jan!

Sampled in celebration of Cinco de Mayo 2007! Probably my favourite themed day of bad beer and Mexican stereotypes!
Looked like water, maybe even a little light in colour to be water. Hardly enough yellow to even be called yellow. No head formed, even off of a completely upright 90 degree pour. Smells kinda like the stale water in a hose and musty potatoe chips. A little sting to the carbonation. No real flavour other than a little corn chip like taste, it's the adjuncts and it's pretty bad. It's as if they used the water from an old well. "Claro" is right, and otherwise there isn't much more to be said.

This is one of the regional beers from Cervecería Modelo, basically for the Guadalajara area. Can be found in some other places in México, though.
It pours a brite yellow, with some head and no lacing.
Faint herbal, hops, grains and almost no skunk smell like its infamous sibling Corona Extra (yuck!).
It's taste, well, watery to say the less. Some bitterness, also.
Crisp if you drink it real cold; average thirst quencher.
I can't stand more than one at a time.

biegaman made us drink this in honour of cinco de mayo...thanks?

pours pale yellow with a small dense white head that disappears instantly.

aroma isn't good. dms and adjunct. dirty hose water.

taste is similar. bit of sweetness. corn and adjuncts. dms.

mouthfeel is ok. lots of carbonation and very light body.

drinkability is ok. not too offensive, but not good either.

I made a big mistake in picking this one up, totally needed a lime. It hints at being a decent pils, but mediocrity abounds. Tastes like a mix of Bohemia, Miller Lite and Corona. The malt flavor is almost pleasant, but then cheap beer flavors rush in and knock that out of your memory. Avoid this one. It's no Corona Light, but you can do better.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a very pale yellow, very clear, average amount of carbonation streaming up the middle, no head retention, no lacing, looks like an average adjunct lager.

A: Old musty cardboard smell, hint of skunk, smells like a watered down Corona, not much going on.

T: Some skunk up front, some maltiness in the finish, very basic, like the aroma, it taste like a watered down Corona.

M: Very light, crisp finish, very drinkable.

O: Taste and smells like a Corona light, faint skunk with an easy drinkability, there are better Mexican beers out there.
