This year? By my observation, there have been quite a few "Mexican Lagers" introduced. Not judging, but definitely not as exciting for me.
I've seen a lot of Mexican lagers pop up for sure, but also variety in type of lager offered seems to be the trend lately. Thinking back to a few years ago a lot of breweries just had some sort of generic "Craft Lager" offering, but are now attempting more regional and stylistic variants. Perhaps not as exciting but I've definitely found a big improvement in quality vs. the afterthought lager most breweries were offering.
The "not as exciting" for me was specific to "Mexican Lagers" which I perceive to be somewhat bland. But I am quite happy to see more lagers in general, especially if they offer something a little different or unique.
Ah, got it. They are pretty mild although I enjoy them as no nonsense lawnmower type beers.

Amsterdam, Muddy York, Rorschach, Ace Hill, Sawdust City to name a few off the top of my head. I've seen a number of other breweries offer them as well although can't remember which ones at the moment.
