This beer is definitely my favorite mexican draft. Unfortunately you have to drive across the border to get a taste of this beer. Its like a Dos XX Ambar and a Negra Modelo mated and had a smooth easy on the palate and absolutely no "afterbite" beer. If you happen to bring some back to the states I highly recommend buying a Caguama "large bottle" because it seems to hold taste better than the 12oz bottles. You can literally sit down and drink pitcher after pitcher of this stuff and not feel your stomach about to explode or a numb mouth because of the Hoppy bitterness ale’s will leave behind. Head south of the border and enjoy an "Oktoberfest" tasting lager and taste the smooth caramel aroma that will make your palate dance...

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Best, easy-drinking Marzen/Oktoberfest lager from Mexico. Be warned-- the bottle product is inferior to the draft. Funny how people judge a beer that’s been smuggled into the US in a hot car trunk and expect it to sing and dance. Enjoy the caramel-malt aroma with a satisfying sweet finish. Think Paulaner Oktoberfest lager at about half the weight. If you are looking for an ale experience, don’t waste your time. Check it out in Nogales, Rocky Point, San Luis Rio Colorado, and Mexicali. Best place to find it is a gringo-feel sports bar called Chiltepino’s. In Nogales, Sonora, take a 15-minute cab ride to El Tule for the world’s best Carnitas and Guacamole. !Salud!

Black Friday tasting...meh. Darkish pour. Malty as hell on the nose. Flavor is malty and booze. Not for me. No thanks.

Second bottle of this beer, why God why? Pours an amber colour with no head at all. Aroma of caramel, toffee and cabbage. Similar flavours with a fair CO2 prickle, not sure how though... Dry finish with a fair vegetal linger. Cabbage infused soda water?

Bottle in Mexico City. Reddish colour. A little malty. An unadventurous beer.

In Mexico - brown beer. Nice head. Has a decent malt flavor. Not great, but a nice alternative to the rest of the beer here.

Amber pour with a light lazy off-white head. The aroma has a little bit of cola-esque sweetness. A bit of caramel and brown sugar over some industrial type malts. A little bit of lightly metallic character on the back of the palate. Oddly sweet on the front - can’t say I’m a fan of this one.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
The pours red brown like any marzen, pretty clear with light tan head. The aroma is very malty. The tasty is way to sweet, too much spice and just an total unpleasant taste. I would not drink this again.
