2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 Draught at Frankfurt, Polanco, Mexico City. Clear nut brown, mid sized head. Caramelly nose. Mid sweet with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Fruit, caramel and, wait - that’s it. Perhaps slight boiled vegetables. Low bitterness. Perhaps not the most exciting beer in the worldm, but a reasonable drinkable and clean macro amber lager.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light amber-brown. Thin, sweet, and bland, vague caramel. That said, this ends up being one of the more reliable Mexican swills.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours ruddy dark amber with a very transient head. Moderate malty aroma. Little hop noticeable. Med + body. Flavor is malty in a lightly roasty way. Could pass for Oktoberfest. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s moderately bitter. Could do for a session beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
