Just because a beer is listed in the commercial examples does not mean it is a 50 beer. I'm not sure why so many assume it. It just means it is representative of the style.

I need to revisit NM, because I haven't found it overly sweet. Of course I have not had one in a year or two either.

I really don't think anyone here was saying it was a 50 or even a 40. I just used to think it went good with my burrito! I'll try the Bohemia next time.

Not a Dos Equis fan. Sorry.

I don't know if it's my changing perceptions or NM has evolved in it's flavor. It seems different these days as opposed to years past. Then again I can't do a side-by-side blind tasting. Dunno...

NM is usually my go to at Mexican restaraunts. How recent of a change are we talking about? I haven't noticed anything different but its been a few weeks since I had one...

My other go to's are Pacifico and XX Amber as far as Mexican beer is concerned.
On Tap:                       
American Wheat / Blonde / Walter Wit / GoschaLagerBier / American Strong Ale
              
Fermenting: nothing :(

Damn. Haven't been to my local (non-chain) Mexican restaurant in a while, but NM was my go-to. Guess its back to prickly pear margaritas.

Even though I prefer without salt, it would be tecate. When I go macro refreshment it's schlitz high gravity on ice with limeade. Big glasses of it.

I replaced NM with Bohemia a few years ago and never looked back.  IMO my NM clone (Dark Vienna Lager using a touch of Briess' Midnight Wheat) is better than the NM is today, and that ain't sayin' much... Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

I am saddened to hear this.  I will perhaps find a bottle to sample soon.... :-\

A cruel shadow of what it once was I'm afraid...
