    Suprema is a refined Salvadoran beer, full bodied with a smooth refreshing taste. It is less bitter than mainstream beers and is smooth and easy-to-drink.

    Nostalgia and marketing prevail with this "iconic" brand. Severed Ice-Cold I still can't drink it. Forced to be consumed with a lime, you can mask some of the "off flavors" and contempt for such an overrated product. I've spoke with many Mexicans who've assured me that the lime thing is an American invention, while the host nation simply uses it to keep the flies out.

    Nice light pils when you're looking for simplicity. The overall term that would best describe this beer would be : linear. Nonetheless it would go well with a slice of lime.

    Loved drinking this beer in college, but lets be real. It smells old, tastes like foul and has to have a lime to be decent.
    That being said it always seems to work well with chips and salsa or anywhere that sand and girls in white t-shirts is involved.

    Corona is one of those beers every has to have tried. I remember in college, instead of bud light if we wanted a treat, we'd go for the corona and get limes from the grocery store.

    That mentality still hasn't changed. Corona, to me, still is the perfect summer time beer. Refreshing and clean. While it may leave a weird aftertaste in your mouth compared to some of the other more traditional lagers and ales, it certainly is unique to Mexican beers.

    Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    Fun Mexican beer. It has a thick, moderately bitter mouth feel and a bitter finish. Served best with lime and pairs well with all Mexican food.

    You really can't go wrong here folks.
