UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Had it at El Torritoes. Goes good with Mexican food. Coca cola color with a wispy head. Faint sweet aroma. Start is sweet and the finish is slightly acidic and spritzy. Have had better and have had worse, but beats Corona by a mile.

Faint sweet malt aroma, deep amber colour, with a small toffee head. Mild malt taste, watery, ordinary. Vienna?

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2003 This one is good. I thought it was a little like Corona now I know why. It is a richer darker beer then its companies name sake. Like Corona I think it is vastly underated. I guess mass marketing=bad to some people. This beer and Corona show that does not have to be the taste. I tend to like beer that you serve with a Lime, Lemon or Orange. I also like the Rasberry and Blue Berry beer I have had. Beer like fruit is refreshing. Mix them together and you have a perfect combo. Soes not taste like an oktoberfest it has a more Mexican feel

Great Vienna! The head is ok. The taste is amasingly smooth and no nasty after tastse. One of the best dark beers I have had. If you get a chance try one I think you will enjoy it

This Mexican Vienna style lager pours a clear, dark, ruby red color with a thin, rapidly dissipating brown head. The aroma contains just a hint of malty sweetness. It has a light body with medium carbonation. The flavor is lightly malty sweet. The finish is crisp with just a hint of mild sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and the mild hop presence is balanced well by the mild malts. A decent beer, better than the Modelo Especial. But still nothing fantastic, though it is drinkable.

Something a tiny step up from macro swill. Hint of malt in the nose and flavor. Would be acceptable in a Mexican resteraunt setting and almost no where else.

Amber brown color with small off-white head which dissipated rapidly. Aroma of toast, citrus and faint peach. Roasted malty flavor with dry hoppy finish. Light to medium body and gentle carbonation. Probably the best of the Modelo brands, drinkable but not something to out of the way for. However, the fruit flies in my house right now seem to love it.

drank this one from the bottle, but i have had it from a glass before. The beer had a nice malty presence, but still had a dirty taste to it like modelo special. The beer was not too intreresting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is light brown with some reddish tones around the bottom and edges of the glass, it gained a good sized head but fizzed away like a soda pop with a mist about it. Smells of a more favorably roasted malt then most Mexican beers, but still has some grainy musk and a small hop note. Taste is roasted malt, slightly earthy and musky, but not dull or bad, just there. Its bolder in the malt, not sweet, but around the darker brown style of some nut browns or dark lagers. Has a medium body, smooth and rounded, with a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

Much better than it's brewery-mate (Corona). This beer is good with or without a lime. I especially like the almost-chocolatey undertones.
