I had many of these on the beach in Mexico, so that's why the rating may be higher than average. Not the best beer out there, but definitely better than any other Mexican lager I've had.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours red orange with a tiny white head. Smells of cereal grain, not much else. Tastes of plain caramelized grain with slight fruit. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

In a clear glass liter mug, the contents of two twelve ounce cans appear much closer to bronze than amber. It certainly doesn't look like Corona, because there's also a nice white head that leaves lacing as it recedes. Predictably, the aroma is more malty than hoppy, but hops are there and the aroma is sufficiently complex. By taste, this is a nicely smooth, malt forward adjunct lager. With its low ABV, this can make a tasty session beer for those that like malty brews. It's sort of Mexico's Yuengling Lager and it's not bad.

L: Pours a clear amber color, with a thin white head that leaves the glass pretty quickly.
S: Sweet grain malts. somewhat bready, also has a bit of a funky smell that I can't quite pin.
T: The taste is far better than the smell, bready, sweet maltiness, floral hops, unfortunately also tastes like a glass bottle.
F: Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp.
O: Very easy to drink, for what it is, it isn't bad.

I bought this beer wanting to try something different. The smell and taste is great but the beer was nearly flat and had very little carbonization. Not sure if this is normal with it but that was a disappointment. Very low alcohol content compared to the IPAs I normally purchase. The carbonation may have been an issue with just this batch, it's expiration date is February 2021 so it is not old.

I like the bottle label artwork. The pour is a mix between burnt orange & chestnut brown with a fair amount of carbonation bubbles. I do not see a date on the bottle. The taste is mild caramel, sweet corn, & Mexican style biscuits. Cheers! C

Prefer Tecate when seeking a refreshing Mexican beer, but this is good when needing low ABV. Has a lot of bitterness in the finish, but not insulting to palate like most IPA.

12oz bottle coded L219B099 poured into a perfect pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on label. The beer pours bright light copper tinted amber with barely khaki head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a few spots of lacing. The aroma is faint with just a touch of grain. The taste is barely tart & sweet corny lager with a very small, but there, full malt flavor in the middle. Finish is barely bitter, with a slight vegetable flavor and a hint of diacetyl. The mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with above average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, good AAL, substandard Vienna lager. I wouldn't hesitate to order one at a busy Mexican restaurant where I had reason to believe it would be fresh.

Just your basic Mexican lager beer. It looks very nice but the taste is not quite up to the appearance. I can't say there is anything memorable about this beer. It is a decently refreshing lighter tasting lager, but not one I would chase down with any extra effort.

Appears golden yellow with a nice foamy head that dropped quickly, no lacing noted.
Smells lightly malty, slightly floral.
Taste follows the nose, but more watery than expected.
Mouth feel is medium light for the style, with good carbonation, that makes this beer refreshing.
Overall, a good beer at a cookout or at the beach on a hot day, but certainly not a great beer.
