From notes.

I got a 6 pack of those since I really wanted to try it and was not sold as a unit. I hope it's good.
Colour is golden yellow, lots of bubbles in the glass, two finger head that most of it went off fast , leaving back enough though to cover the beer's surface.Strong aroma of malts,taste is slighty bitter, nothing extraordinary but at least is not bad. On the palate thin and watery as exected.

Look: Very bright yellow color, with a head that lives while pouring the beer, like a can of urine; Smell: Doesn't smell good, doesn't smell bad, do not smell anything; Taste: Only is acceptable when it's very cold, grab essence of mineral water with some liquor; Mouthfeel: Watery, fizzy, without body; Drinkability: Acceptable if you have to drive.

Gallo Draft, Gallo Light, Baron Pils, Tropical; what is the difference? i buy this beer in a wholesale store 24 pack for $11.00 bucks, a cheap option for the mass, results in a low average beer, try with all mexican food, 68% recommended. (only sell in 12oz. aluminum cans)

Pours yellow, clear with a mild white foamhead. Aroma is malty, grainy, some corn, very mild noble hops. Taste is mild, malty, low bitterness, some acidity. Low body with low carbonation. Refreshing and very cheap beer.

Well, let's say first, this beer was created by Grupo Modelo in response of the international beers that have been arriving here at low costs, less than 3 Dollars per six pack. So, Modelo launched this light lager beer, which is similar to the others but national, so, every patriotic lager drinker would like it. For me, this beer is a little flavorless but at least does not taste awful as other beers made with corn derivades.

Tropical is produced by Grupo Modelo, S. A. de C. V. and is another cheap beer.

Pours a golden color, quickly disappearing head; Smell is weak not much aroma but malty; Flavor is watery but very drinkable.

I think Tropical is better than many cheap beers.
