Light amber-brown. Thin, sweet, and bland, vague caramel. That said, this ends up being one of the more reliable Mexican swills.

Clear dark amber, small off-white foam ring. Light caramel barley aroma, more outspoken taste. Short aftertaste. (Houston 201501)

A couple 12oz bottles at my holiday party. Pours a clear amber with some creamy head. Nose has mild caramel, cheap malt, some corn, a little yeast. Flavor follows, some dough, some soggy biscuit, some chewy toffee. Watery finish.

Bottle in tulum mexico. Pale. Very watery and kinda off flavor. Finishes with pale malt and skunkiness. Generic and pretty bad.

My Bottom Line:
Mild caramel and vague hop bitterness coexist lackadaisically in this forgettable brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the deep amber.
-At first, I thought it was interesting that the masses in Mexico City drank a beer this dark. But then I tasted it and realized there wasn’t much specialty malt flavor in here at all... Oh well...
-This is strangely drier and more drinkable than MANY artisanal brews produced in the Mexico City area.
-Malts are poorly defined in the flavor profile.

8/20/14. Super random tick during a VORLAUF meeting thanks to Bill as I recall! Light, clear amber pour with a small frothy khaki head. Plain aroma, husky malts, light caramel, corn and oxidation, corn chips. Plain flavor, not awful, not great, light caramel, some floral aspects, corn chips. Eh.

Bottle. Handsome amber with white topper. Mild aroma corn, paper and musk. Taste is clean and light. A bit sweet. Light aspartame on close. Better than most bodega beers in Mexico.
