750mL bottle at DLD. Poured deep amber with a well-retained cap of tan head. The aroma was warm and very sweet with caramel and souring fruits leading the way. The flavor was sugary and warm with caramel and toffee at the core.. touches of brown sugar graced the edges, along with earthy bitterness and mild oxidation.. solid! Medium-bodied and rather grainy on the palate with low carbonation.. OK feel and flow.

Bottle sampled at DLD. Poured a brown red with a tan head. Fruity nose, red fruit, sweet malts and fruity hops. Cherries and red fruit flavors, lots of caramel malt with a light bitterness. Decent beer, especially for coming from across the border.

Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. I think I was told "this is the best beer from Mexico"... and I’d have to agree. It was rather tasty. Phenomenal? No, but solid. Pours a clear still brown with no head. Light isopropyl notes on the nose, but nothing huge. Light caramel follows it up. Medium bodied with nice plum and more caramel and dark fruit. Finishes with a light bitterness. Surprisingly tasty.

Bottle shared by someone at the Bruery Reserve Society Initiation. Pours a mostly clear orangish-amber color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, wood, dark fruits, and faded hops. Flavor is pretty solid with caramel, toffee, vanilla, fruity notes, mild sherry oxidation, wood, and citrusy hops. Medium body for the style with some booze and a some slight hop oils. Maybe the best Mexican beer I’ve had, not that that is saying too much.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: I never even noticed this until it was pointed out to me by my friend but it sounded real good and like a real treat. The aroma is caramel based malt with a whiff of alcohol. Appearance is a dark mahogany color with a puffy small head which dies in a matter of seconds after the pour. Flavors are rich with sweetness and a bit of bitterness. Tastes range from a thick caramel you would put on a green apple to English style ale with cigar tobacco.
