For the price of five pesos a bottle and the good taste it has, this is a relly good beer. Actually one of my favorite Mexican beers. Bottle. Clear dark amber colour with a big mostlydiminishing head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Flavour is soft with toasty maltiness, caramel and slightly hoppy. Soft finish with a bit of caramel and malt.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 The best darkish mexican beer around and therefore has the best flavor. I would have a 40oz of this if there was no sol brava available.

I think that this was my favorite macro-Mexican. And the beer that without a doubt makes the best michelada. To do that, add about 2 inches of lime juice to the bottom of your glass. Salt the glass rim, add beer. Served that way, you can drink a couple and this beer gets oer a 3.0 Without the michelada, it deserves a 2.3. We had this one in Veracruz, Mexico.

Deep copper color with a medium head. That’s pretty dark for a pale lager... Slightly sweet aroma like honey or maple syrup, but it fades immediately. Completely dead taste. It looks darker than water and feels a bit thicker, but otherwise, I might as well be drinking water.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 First rating
Bottle in Monterrey, Mexico, September 2005.
Amber towards brown color, white head. Served ice cold but also nice when warming up a bit. Hoppy scent and taste, one of the better Mexican beers I’ve tried.
Bottle from Señor Frogs, Costa Maya, Mexico. End of January 2014.
Amber color, white head. More malty scent and taste than I remembered it to be. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Still plenty of more character than many other generic lagers I’ve had from Mexico, but not as outstanding towards other beers than I remembered it to be. Leaving the older rating scores though, close enough.

Extremely low expectations despite an old girlfriend saying this was good. Solid, much more in coloration and bittering than I would have thought also. Not that it’s going to blow anyone away, but I could easily see enjoying many of these if I were to be vacating in Mexico. Thanks to my current girlfriend snagging this for me without my even asking.

Pours a light amber with a thin off white head. Mild caramel aroma and not much else. The taste was only slightly better than the Sol I drank all week, but at least it was a change of pace.
