Thanks FEMSA! Take a good name and run it into the ground. Don’t even bother to change the art on the label, even though this is clearly a different beer than Casta Morena. Anyway, after that rant... I was disappointed by this. The predominant aroma and flavor was smoke. The combination of malts was just too sweet for my taste. There was a hint of some interesting hops in there, but it just couldn’t get out. The color was a golden copper, and the head was white and left some nice lacing. It’s really not that bad a beer, but it’s not up to Casta’s prior standards.

Geiserich (4140) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottled: Suprising pleasant beer. Brown color, off-white head. Light fruity, refreshing malty aroma with hop notes. Flavor is malty, light metalic hop notes, almonds and hints of fruits. Dry, light bitter finish.

Pours dark amber color, malt aroma, some sweet flavor, very watery, is almost the same thing as Casta Morena

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2009
a shame that casta has been watered down like this. virtually no aroma at all. some vigorous sniffing comes up with a very faint toastiness and clag. watery, sweet, empty palate with only detectable flavours being caramel and a slice of burnt toast on AM radio with the sound turned right down, like the way old people listen to the radio.

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
Bottle - 355ml. Nice amber body with a decent off-white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Taste is rather thin and finish is short. Disappointing.

Well,a ctually this is the same beer Casta MOrena used to be, I don’t know how differnt it is from the original, but the facts are FEMSA bought Casta and at first launched Bruna and then this one alone.

La 300 la de casta En el df - en celtics the irish pub Una cerveza grande por su nombre. Oscura con un poco de malta dulce, facil y entretenida. Sabor a humo parece que no abunda.

bottle. I was suprised at this one. Maybe it was just the fact that it was considerable step up from the rest of the beer I had that night. light richness and sweetnes.

liinis (1766) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008
bottle. Dark red-brown and clear with a beige big foamy head that stays eternally and leaves lace. Reminds me awful lot of the ukrainian beers which quality didn’t quite convince me. Wheatbeer -like strong acidic lemony sourness, but heavier sweet maltyness of dark beer. Very metallic and watery. Quite bad beer, but nice label !

Amber deep dark cristal color, poor head, a little malty aroma, the flavor is poor but is fresh and light, no good taste, steel in the finish
