A decent summer beer. Better than Corona.

Nothing too special about it, just a no thrill pale lager, good for a hot day outside, or with spicy Mexican food.

We can get this on tap at our local Mexican restaurant .......the food there is great and this on tap is also really good. Of course when you get fresh beer on tap it makes a big difference.

I am so glad that this was brought to my house, because I can't see justifying how I spent money on it. Bud light has a cleaner taste to it, and don't even mention about the pour......where is the nice crisp foam? I rated it low, because of the following. I will give it points for the nice bottle and a well done commercial, but for taste, it was pretty bland. For look, the color was nice, but not even a quarter finger of foam, and even that dissipated once I poured it. Smell, well, it was decent. Taste was not very fresh, kind of left a metallic linger.....and that was from a bottle. The only feel I had was disappointment. Overall, I didn't care for the beer, but again, pretty nice commercial.

This is one of my go to beers. I honestly don't understand why it rates so low on here. It's nothing special but it definitely is not bad. I encourage people to have it in a can if they've only had it in a bottle. It claims to be a pilsner style lager and it taste to me somewhere between your standard macro lager and standard macro pils. It's super clean out of a can. Very clear. Smells very inoffensive. Very slight skunk, but not in a bad way. I'm giving it a 4 overall because I think it is the best macro Mexican beer I've had and the overall BA ratings on here are not fair how to smooth, clean, crisp, consistent and inoffensive it really is.
