Perfectly drinkable but drab Mexican dark lager. Teak colour, tiny head, bit of lace. Caramel malt in the light, toasted hop aroma. Watery and over-carbonated. Skinny customer. Some coffee character and sweet malt. Unremarkable. (Bottle)

Although very bland it is probably the best from south of the border. I really cant understand how they call it a dark ale though.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Brown colored and fizzy head that dissappears in few seconds time. Aroma is almost like a pale lager but with a small nose of caramel malt. A bland beer with little chance of sweetness from the malt. Finish is dry and has a fair alcohol % even though its from south of the border.

This beer has a light brown body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is moutig with no afther tast .

Nice fruity smell to it, pours amber. Had the sweet and sour taste of caramel and fruit. Nice and smooth, felt good, nice beer.

Used to really dig this on mexican beer night at the Deer Park in DE. It seemed to work then. Only $2 a bottle and all. Now, it no longer really holds a place in my heart. Pretty thin and boring but drinkable.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2005
Boring and watery. The fact that this is rated as the Corona Breweries’ best beer speaks volumes about their abominable swill.

(12 oz bottle/shaker) Medium burnt red pour with little head that leaves a very spaced lacing. Light tastes of roasted malt and a touch of honey. It was better than i expected but, not worth the price.

Good stuff - nice aroma but faint. No head to speak of. bit of a roasted flavor. goes well with my popcorn.

Light brown pour with small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel malt and light on the hops. Little bit of roastiness in the flavor, but needs a little more hops. Definitely one of the better Mexican beers, good with chips and salsa or sun and sand.
