Its one of the best Mexican beer overall. Probably better than Corona. This beer goes great with seafood such as a ceviche if you order at a restaurant. Color is nice and the feel is pretty good. Taste is not bad like American beers. Smell is pretty good. I choose this over any nasty American beer any time of the day. Perfect on a hot day or at a beach.

Presentation: 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

Look: Pours with almost no head. I detect almost no lacing. Carbonation appears to be below average. It's got a pale yellow color to it. It's a pretty average looking beer.

Smell: The smell is mild. It smells sweet, toasty, grainy, and corny more than anything. I smell a very faint amount of hops. The smell overall is kind of nice, despite minimal hops aromas.

Taste: This beer had more complex tastes to it than I expected. It tastes of sweet, grainy, slightly malty, and slightly hoppy. It has a semi-bitter, yet semi-sweet aftertaste I enjoy. The taste is nice and crisp overall.

Feel: It feels smooth, foamy, and slightly watery.. The feel is good but not great.

Conclusion: This is one of the better Mexican made adjunct lagers out there. I cannot find anything I dislike about it, except for the look being mediocre. It's a a very crisp drinkable beer, and it has a surprising amount of flavor for an adjunct lager. I would recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys American adjunct lagers, or to anyone who's looking for a crisp, yet very drinkable beer on a hot day.

Cheers
