12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear golden orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with poor strength, and a bit too yeasty. Taste of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/creamy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a good Vienna lager. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. This improved as I finished the glass. There was quite a bit of corn/DMS in the aromas initially, but it went away as it sat in the glass; none were present in the flavors. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This is another Mexican beer that to me tastes like all the others. This is a below average lager. The taste is bland and unmemorable. Nothing Special here.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Look: Pours a transparent, lightly toasted orange color with a two finger head of fine, off white foam. Leaves no lacing, but maintains a head for a time.

Smell: Fairly weak nose. Apples and grass mostly. Some notes of metal and cooked corn.

Taste: Lots of dirty, metallic flavors upfront with a rusty water flavor. Slight notes of rice, cornbread and caramel. Bland.

Feel: The mouth feel isn't terrible, but it's very dry and sweet, not what I would want to session.

Overall: Maybe my bottle was skunked but I thought this was pretty bad. Shame because It looked pretty good in the glass.

Drunk straight from the bottle. Consequently, impossible to rate the look. Smell was absent, but that may also have been due to the lack of a glass. For a supposed vienna lager this beer tastes exclusively of lemons. No hops or malt present. Light body with medium carbonation. Nothing to like here. Another bland, Mexican lager. Ok with the tacos I was eating but the watermelon agua fresca was better.

Poured from a bottle with no decernable best by date; into a Sam Adam's perfect pint glass.
Appearance - orange, swarming bubbles that form a medium thick head. Lacing is decent in spots.
Smell - sweet, sugary malts.
Taste - bland, but sessionable; certainly not terrible.
Feel - light, easy drinking; just too blah.
Overall - trying to keep an open mind here...if you can get it for around $24/case and you're having a bbq for nonbeer snobs who typically drink corona, this would be a good option.

Found in the back of fridge. A dull copper-hued brew, a bit of head, soapy white, but it doesn't last long. Aroma is mostly sharp, tinny hops. Very little malt aroma, maybe a whiff of faint trace of buscuit-y smell. Taste is not great; very flat and watery, with a bile-like taste up front. I feel like there's a bit of artificial lime flavor in here, too. Overall, the low quality ingredients really negatively affect the beer.

Maybe this was an old beer, but this one is a drain pour. Gross.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Notes: Had this beer for the first time today.

Presentation: 12 ounce bottle poured into a 16 ounce beer mug.

Look: Beers pours with very little head, and has minimal carbonation. It's a dark golden color, and its got a slight amount of fogginess to it. This beer has a decent look to it.

Smell: It smells of sweet caramel, grains, and hops. There is also a slight grassy undertone to the smell. The smell is pretty good overall.

Taste: It has a smooth, yet crisp taste to it. It tastes hoppy mostly, but it has a subtle malty taste to it aswell. There is a mineral-like after taste to it too. I think it has a nice mild taste overall.

Feel: The feel is nice and fizzy. I was not expecting a fizzy feel because the beer looks to have minimal carbonation.

Overall: It's not a bad beer at all. It's got a nice smell, a mild taste. It's a very drinkable beer with a bit more flavor than most Mexican beers. I would recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys a refreshing, mild tasting lager. This beer tastes great on a hot summer day, and it goes well with food.

Cheers.

This brew is a clear, pale yellow color with a scant head. The aroma is of corn, sulfur, and a bit of grass & grain. The taste has hint, and just a hint, of malt. It probably has a bit more flavor than a typical American macro or light beer, but not much. The body is light and the taste is dry. Not much to enjoy here.
