A Lager-type beer with an amber hue and a distinctive light caramel-malt taste.

Smells of a typical brown ale malt aroma. Appearance is an appealing copper brown body but not spectacular. Flavour is watery malt, like it’s trying to be a dark beer for people who don’t like dark beers. Weak on the mouth. It is not great at what it does.

decaturstevo (5582) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pale yellow pour with white head. Corn, and light oxidation on the nose. Flat paper, floral hops, and oxidation on the flavor. Light bodied and fizzy. Bad when the high light of a beer is less oxidation that you expected.

Bottle. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, nuts, husks, caramel). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Almost odorless, just some crude malt really. This brewery is still clearly better than Modelo, though. I freely admit to having consumed a sixer of Bohemia mindlessly by the pool/beach during this vacation...one of the few Mexi-macros that is well balanced, not too horribly husky/dirty, and actually has clear hop aroma.

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle from Schmik’s retirement. A darker brown color pour than I expected. A really nice aroma with a good maltiness. The flavor is where this beer came off the trails. It had a weird hint of vinyl or nylon.

Dark amber color. Malty aroma. Good refreshing beer with a sweet taste. One Of the best Mexican beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle. Lager style, but there are many better Mexican beers out there. Very watered down, nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3433) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle; poured a ruby amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel and rotten fruit. Bland slightly bready and sweet flavor. Just not very good

Cumplidora pero sin nada que resaltar... Sin sabor notable, color x y sabor muy neutro

This is light in color for an amber ale. The nose is light. The body is thin with very light taste. Dos Equis is better and Brooklyn lager even better.
