strap (518) - 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 (1946) - 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 (2724) - 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.

Joakgust (1043) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle, 325ml - Clear copper brown beer with almost no head. Aroma is malty with sweet notes of caramel, milk chocolate and bananas. Flavor is malty with notes of bread, cereal and hay. Pretty boring for being a Vienna, on the other hand its a good beer for Mexican standards.

Light amber w a thin white head. Nose is a little bit of caramel, some soda water, a little vegetal. Flavor is watery caramel, soda water, a tiny bit of roasty malt. Some cocoa in the finish. Average body and carbonation.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. This was probably the best beer I had while in Progresso. Now that’s not saying much because the options were severely limited, but this still wasn’t a terrible beer. It has a decent amber color with better head rentention than I was expecting. The aroma is a combination of malt, a bit of toast, a touch of skunk, and dare I say, maybe some noble hops? The flavor was light with some grain and slightly citric notes. Really much better than everything else around here. Worth a try if you happen to be in a bind.
