2.89/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look - Nice Brown/Amber appearance, mostly clear, doesn't produce much head.

Smell - Clean malty smell with some caramel and nutty characteristics.

Taste - Malty taste as well, slightly bitter aftertaste that lingers for awhile after sipping.

Feel - Nice level of carbonation, on the dry side, good body.

Overall - Pretty solid beer overall. Don't get it confused with some of the other Mexican beers out there. This is closer to a Sam Adam's Boston Lager than a Corona. So pass on the lime if you order in a Tex-Mex restaurant. One of the better widely available Mexican beers in the states.

3.51/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - The beer pours a dark blonde color with white bubbles crowning the pour.

Smell - It smells like beer. It smells like the same generic stuff my father and grandfather drank when I was a kid.

Taste - sweet cereal grains come at the front. There is bitterness toward the back with grassy notes and perhaps a hint of hops. Believe it or not, the bitterness lingers slightly.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is a little overwhelming. It needs to come down a couple notches to allow something to linger besides the sweetness.

Mouthfeel -For a beer that is at most grocery stores, this is actually pretty good.

Somewhat dark appearance with some head and carbonation that dedicates quickly. Very mild aroma. Taste is also very mild taste if you can call it that

Exp. "06042017", I guess it ain't fresh, and I'm getting started with it a bit too cold. Contains antioxidants, stabilisers and color agents. Almost no foam, ice tea color, subtle aromas of caramel, apple fruitiness and earthy hops, which show most clearly on mouth, together with a bit of a metallic note. Prolonged aftertaste.
