Pour amber very little head. Aroma hard to distinguish. Taste watery and dissatisfying. MF thin mild carb. Not very pleasant sad faces everywhere.

ttutony (794) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Amber color. Faint toasted malt character, otherwise mostly cereal grain. Comes through a little thin all-around for the style. Probably just a bit better than your average Mexican lager I’d say though.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Dark brown pour. Aroma shows light caramel along with some pale malt beneath. Low hopping and low bitterness. Simple but decent enough. Like another version of Dos Equis amber. Don’t think I need to order it again.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2012 Bouteille, 6%. Bue au Mexique, à Playa del Carmen. Couleur brune, belle effervescence. Arôme de malt, en bouche assez fine et présence de céréale grillé et malt. Une brune assez faible mais bonne.

strap (611) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - MAR 1, 2011
quite possibly the worst beer i’ve ever consumed. after a week of coronas, pacificos and modelo especials, i was excited by this "dark" mexican lager. what a disappointment. it was skunky, watered down swill that was brown. i think they just added some food coloring to a bad batch of corona. truly awful.

Bottle. Pours amber in colour. Not much aroma or flavour. Seems like a slightly darker, Mexican lager.

rubbishystuff (2109) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Well I like it better than some of the other Mexican lagers but it isn’t the greatest Vienna. A little watery. Had in the Yucatan. Serving: Bottle

tmoreau (3138) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2010
12oz. bottles brought back by my neighbors from a Cancun trip as payment for watching the cats. Poured to my trusty SA lager glass with a clear, brownish amber, modest, quickly diminishing, off white head, and light ribbons of lacing. The aroma started with a typical lager nose, German malt, toastiness, almost roastiness, and a touch of caramel. The flavor added to these some light hop bitterness, a light, somewhat thin body, and lively, almost fizzy carbonation. Drinkably sessionable after a little yard work.
