Just poured into a pilsner pint glass. This beer is for people who do not care what goes on the tongue. Head created is pathetic. Extreme amount of fizz as you pour, like a soda can. The head looks like the ocean after a storm, frothy and not appealing. The head vanishes in about 30 seconds, poor display. No lacing at all. Nose to glass is just a downer. I get a specific scent of corn. Carbonation is at a high point on this beer. Looks like water held up to the light, color rendition shows a lack of attention. Could be all the corn and adjuncts. Just took a second sip, just flavorless and watered down. This beer should be sold at 3.99 a six pack, maybe less, anything over is insulting. Not enjoying this at all! Friend gave me the six pack, what can i say. On a side note i would drink this any day over Bud or Coors light.

Not a great beer.

I believe this to be one of the "better" mexican beers and will snag this or Modelo if it's on tap at my local Mexican food source. Sure it's not the ideal snag, but it works well with my grub. Good hot weather beer for toiling around the house and multiples are definitely doable.

Yellow in color, cereal and corn aroma, tastes like dried corn and finishes with a spicy kick. Again, not much to tell your friends about, but for an afternoon swim party, tailgate, yard could definitely do worse.

The taste isn't as smooth as Corona, maybe but I actually prefer it a lot of the time. Feels like it has a little more going on. My go to for Mexican style.

Great for warm days and camping when you don't want something heavy and don't want crap American Lager. Fun to experiment with too! Throw a chili in there or some tabasco. A fun beer you don't have to think about too hard.

Had a couple drafts at my favorite Mexican place and amused my dinner partners as I took notes for a review. The beer was served in a chilled pint glass with a couple limes on the side.

A - Golden color with a thin lace that lasted throughout.

S - Very neutral with some corn with a hint of yeast. I'm sure the cold masked some aroma but this beer is meant to be drank as cold as possible.

T - Combination of malt with some yeast flavors - as expected very little hopping. Very clean finish.

M - Very crisp with good carbonation.

O - This beer really paired well with my enchiladas. Just for kicks I squeezed the limes into one and found the taste to be very pleasant. I find some Mexican beers to have some off tastes but none were evident with this one. If you're in a Mexican restaurant and see this one I would recommend giving it a try.
