3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
There are beers that I would buy anytime and anywhere, and then there are beers that are perfectly suitable for accompanying a meal, when dining out. I would put this pleasant, malty, reddish-amber beer in the latter category. Although inevitably served too cold and lacking much head, it is a light, but flavorful beer with some subtlety, hints of wine, fruit, herbal nose when opened (but quickly fading), etc., but also somewhat course at times - i.e., alcohol not well-integrated. I would say that its better than its Mexican counterparts as a restaurant beer. Could use more hops at the finish.

Bottle. Malty with caramel and chocolate on the nose and the palate. Dark color but not heavy in the mouth. A little bitter but a Lyle sweet too so balance is good.
