3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Greg. Interesting burnt caramel aroma - root beer like. Copper no head. Decent taste: very woody/roasty malt, long nutty linger. Thin but not too watery. Best of the 3 Mexican Viennas we started the tasting with, but still not something I would reach for.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - my bottle via a trade with Nekronos. Clear dark amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, malt and a faint smokiness. Body is a bit thin, but OK for the style. Flavour is very clean and fresh, with light malt, some burnt sugar, and interesting herbal notes in the finish. Not exciting, but very well made.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Bottle (325ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, GregClow’s bottle via Nekronos. Deepish copper with a small off-white foamy head. Dry roasty leafy aroma, quite grainy, not much sweetness, herbal, dry hops. Taste is sweeter, a little syrupy, not bad, a little bland. Average body, lightly carbonated, sticky. Ehhh, nicely made, but not memorable.

Malty, sweet aroma. Off white head, nice clear brownish-red color. Flavor has some chocolate to it, and maybe a touch of smokiness. The palate is thin, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. This is a good beer for Mexico, but overall it’s just a little bit bland.
