Corona. Great marketing. Average taste. For an authentic Cinco de Mayo (oh, the irony), order these beers on Cinco de Mayo and really experience Mexican beers.
This German Pilsener ranks as one of the best tasting, if not the best, Mexican beers. It’s available year round. Expect a slight citrus overtones with a sharp malt scent. Clocks in at 5.3% ABV.
2. Negra Modelo
A Vienna Lager featuring chocolate and caramel flavors with 5.4% ABV. Partially owned by Anheuser-Busch, but hey, who isn’t. One of the top-selling and most popular Mexican beers.
A Munich Dunkel Lager with 4.5% ABV. A dark beer with a sweet malty taste to it.
4. Dos Equis Amber Lager
Yes, stay thirsty. Another Vienna Lager and comes in at 4.7% ABV. Think Sam Adams mixed with Newcastle Brown Ale. The original Dos Equis beer started over 100 years ago. That’s enough time to get something right.
A Märzen / Oktoberfest style at 4.5% ABV. This beer only received American distribution less than 3 years ago. A bit of a hipster beer, ironically brought to US shores by Heineken USA.
