A- Light golden brown with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.

S- BMC aroma with a slight sweetness.

T- Very sweet with hints of caramel and toffee. The finish is smooth.

M- Light-bodied with a smooth mouth-feel. The carbonation is on the low side.

D- Not bad, but not great, very easy drinking. There are no bad or off flavors present, but nothing about the beer stands out.

One of the 1001 Beers you must taste before you die -- #31 of the ones I've reviewed here.

I confess I rather like this beer -- I think it's sort of underrated. Not great, not by any means, but certainly underrated.

It has an absolute perfect appearance, a very nice reddish brown that leans maybe a hair more red than other mahogany brews, I'm not sure I've ever seen any other beer with quite this color. The nose and taste is nothing overwhelming special, a little sweet malt, although I like it at least as much as Sam Adams Boston Lager, say. I think the mouthfeel on this is particularly nice, it's very light and effervescent, which sort of works against the color and style but does add a level of refreshment to this which I think is quite nice.

I don't want to oversell this, it's no classic. But I do think it's better than the general run of Mexican beers, at least the ones you can easily get in the states, and I do recommend it.
