Better than most Mexican beers but is still not too great.

Bottle. Aroma is mild malt. Appearance is clear dark brown (like root beer or cola) with nice sparkle but no head/lacing. Taste is mild sweet. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and abrupt finish. Refreshing beer without complexity or tremendous interest but well above the average domestic swill.

TorbenJensen (179) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2015
Moderate foam. Good aroma of caramel and light rye bread. The taste is not so surprising, but satisfactory of caramel malt, a little bread and a little sweetish spicy taste that reminds a little discreet about pine needles, but without the bitter taste. Hoppy bitterness is beautifully balanced with respect to the malty flavor, but in the end it is a rather discreet and anonymous vienna. It will certainly be very suitable for Mexican spicy food or just as a cool beer when you think you’ve earned it. Some gem it is certainly not, but type correctness and general expectations for a wienerøl are met.

Decent amber pour, quick thin white head. Nose is medium roasted grain. Bittersweet. Middle shows some caramel. Finish shows a touch of hop bitterness.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is malt and caramel. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy with average carbonation. It pairs well with Mexican food.

scoth (603) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with a thin beige head, good retention. Aromas of hay, caramel, biscuit, earth. Light watery body, good carbonation. Light sweetness, a hint of citrus, gentle bitter finish. Very quaffable.

Brentv (477) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2015
On tap at a hotel dinner. Amber pour with a white head and quite a bit of foam and lacing on the glass. Light aroma of malts. The taste is fruity, caramel malts. No discernible hops. Thin to medium mouthfeel. This is one of the nicer easy to drink mass market beers. It’s pleasant and enjoyable.

Served in the bottle at a Mexican restaurant, so did not see appearance. No detectable aroma, slightly unpleasant taste.

Amber in color and smooth tasting from the mexican waters. Very fresh and easy to drink.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear amber color with a thick foamy head, good lacing. Aroma is faint caramel malt. Flavor is very watery. Thin palate. Overall the appearance is probably the best part of this beer.
