My favorite lager so far. Solid malty body and a mild, earthy hop characteristic. Crisp and refreshing with more flavor than American lagers.

2 cans left from father-in-law. Only had Negra Modelo before, didn't quite realize that this one was golden/pilsner. Tastes like ''beer''

Some of the ratings..... it just sounds like they don't prefer lager. This is a fine lager. We had it on draft at our local mexican restaurant. Love the smell and the flavor was so good with our macho burrito. I had it in the bottle at home when on the computer and got a better idea of it's full flavor. If you like lager try this one.

Had it on tap the first time I ever got it. So good. Has that corny note to it but I like the corn adjunct lagers. Would definitely get this one again on tap. Have to try the bottles and cans next. Cheers.

This beer conflicts me. As an adjunct it fulfills its mandate. Is it a good beer? It’s okay. It is what it is. Carbonated and flavorless beer.
