325ml bottle poured into pint glass 29/8/12

A clear pale yellow with lots of tiny bubbles feeding a short lived finger of foam that leaves a couple partial rings of lace before it falls

S faint skunk, some green apple, dry cereal and cooked veggies, its not offensive but not very good either

T much like the smell but with a little sour lemon, again leaves something to be desired

M watery but well carbonated, just a faint corny aftertaste, pretty average

O about on par with other Mexican lagers, nothing special but I finished it without problems

perhaps I´ll find a gem if I keep looking here in Mexico but I´m not getting my hopes up that´s for sure

So I'm in Puerto Vallarta and this is what goes for a special not local beer. Yeah I'm trouble, its going to be a week full of liqour, sadly.'

It pours, smells and tastes like any other mexi beer. Its light gold very clear with a little of hops. Of course its easy to drink, but has not alcohol or mouthfeel.

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.

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.

Golden yellow with big bubbles and a decent, white head. Pretty good retention.

Aroma is kinda nice with malt sweetness, a touch of corn, and some noticeable German noble-type hops presence.

Taste is sweet and light, smooth and a bit spicy at the finish with the bit of hops. Aftertaste is of lingering malts.

A smooth-drinking beer that seemed a bit better than BMC or Corona, but stil fairly similar in style. Would be very refreshing.

a beer from the light lager family without the taste of rice and corn accentuated, i drink this beer for first time the past year because its no sold in all the country, but is good in my appreciation, smell like areal beer, taste is low by the average, drinkability is for a take 4 or 5 only.

Extremely lager. NOt tastes bad, but it is a little more like water. It has been distributed widely now in the whole country, but I already knew its flavor. PErhaps the beers they are bringing now here are a little stronger. That happens very often here, the flavor changes.

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.
