Pours amber obviously. Clear, white head. Taste is an improved adjunct lager taste with notes of sweet caramel. I dig this beer and Mexican food. And yes, I put a lime in it. Also just realized that my 800 rate is coming on this fine offering.

An easy drinking but boring beer. Pours a very nice clear amber with a thick white head. Not much of any smell, bit of wheat. Taste is light, with a slight amount of roastiness. Not the most interesting though.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 I’m only rating this because I have a completionist’s mindset. "I must rate every beer I have since getting this app." It’s Dos Equis with brown food coloring and still with a lime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish amber with off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Caramel and malt nose. Malty sweetness with a slight citrus presence. Light bodied and well-carbonated. Decent Mexican beer--finally!

Drank from bottle. Smells malts and not much more. Tastes raisins, malts and watery. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Not very flavorful, but then, at many Mexican Restaurants, this is the best they may have. It’s fairly dry, some caramel malt flavor, nearly no hop bitterness, flavor or aroma. Needs lime to get it to be passable. It’s OK, but then, I’m a hop head.

DandyLion (466) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle at Hacienda restaurant Toronto. Amber coloured. I preferred to the lager. Has a maltier taste with a more complex taste. But not very complex, a drinkable but very average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
