If you like mexican beers, this is a fantastic, light mexican brew. Would strongly recommend to anyone. The second I open this beer it reminds me of the Cancun sun. If you dont like this beer, then you just dont appreciate the flavor a mexican beer. Viva Mexico, Viva Modelo

thought i would go out of my normal habits(checking beer advocate before buying.) when i created this mix six. clear straw yellow with a head that goes away in a instant. aroma is a blend of corn and malt . taste and mouth feel would seem like a great summer beer due to it crisp flavor and clean finish. next time i am out at a local Mexican restaurant i will have to see it this is on the menu , would love to pair it with a well crafted mexican meal

A: clear, yellowish-copper, almost no head that dissipated by the time I set the can down

S: fruity, but not in a good way... almost like juicy fruit gum, bread, no hop smell

T: starts out with heavy breads malt and finishes with a small amount of bitter, not much else here

M: light, little carbonation, very sessionable

O: not bad for a typical light lager, but too exepensive in america, though it's much cheaper in mexico; it's a good canoe beer (when you flip the canoe over, it's not a huge loss!)
