UPDATED: MAY 23, 2003 Although this Vienna style lager has a lovely deep amber hue, it is pretty flavorless. However, it's well-balanced and refreshing. The aroma is pleasant and yeasty. Goes well with spicy food... I guess that's its purpose. Don't buy this beer unless you are at a Mexican restaurant. In my opinion, that advice is pretty much true for any Vienna style brew. They all go very well with certain foods, especially beef jerky, but don't stand well on their own. My opinion. Take it for what it's worth.

Overall, I like this beer and think it is a good value for the money ($4.99 at the local liquor store for a 6 pack). It does tend to give me an upset stomach after more than a couple though. I am definitely not ashamed to drink this beer.

Brewed in the Vienna syle this is far superior to the average Mexican beer.A pleasant refreshing taste with a delicate caramel aftertaste. A well balanced drink with a pleasant mahogany appearance.Recommended.

I didn’t really enjoy this at all. Boring. The taste isn’t very good and the aroma is awful. Not for me.

A lovely color and a light finish. A good bet at any Mexican restaurant if they don’t carry Negra Modelo.

Decent, middle of the road beer, a bit better than the average American standard as it has a good, slightly roasted maltiness to it.

It’s pretty decent on draft, not as much so in the bottle.

Not bad, but a little thin on body and taste.
