This dark vienna-munich type beer has had extraordinary acceptance in international markets. Exports to the U.S. began in the early 80´s, and have since attained great success in Europe, Australia, Central and South America.

Not bad for a Mexican beer masquerading itself as a Vienna munich beer. Slight maltiness coupled with week hops. Cheap to buy.

Given the choice between this and the usual Mexican beer this one wins hands down. Typical Mexican taste but more flavour than the big "C" with a decent caramel maltiness.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 This beer doesn’t seem to really qualify as a "dark beer" except in its appearance. It is not bitter, nor sweet, nor heavy, nor light. It has a creamy taste, almost like vanilla, and has no noticeable aroma. Overall it is a bit weak tasting, although not completely flavorless. Definitely worth trying, or drinking if you want a change of pace from some of the more commanding beers, but not really that exciting. Sort of like a good cream soda without the sugar.

Dark red pour, taste of malt with a weird, burnt overtone. Of couse, no hops to speak of. Pleasantly mellow carbonation puts this stuff in the ballpark of drinkable.

highlandlad (1475) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2005
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.

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 .
