COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DOESN'T EVEN GO WELL WITH MEXICAN FOOD. TASTES MORE LIKE BAD TAP-WATER THAN ANYTHING. MAYBE I GOT A BAD BATCH.

Roasted malt flavor lives up to its gorgeous amber color (though still lighter than I prefer). Sweetness partially makes up for watery texture. Otherwise, unimpressive, but better than I had expected.

A decent Vienna. Nothing too exciting though. Malt flavor is spoiled by a bit of fizziness. On the milder size, not too sweet.

rauchbier (3605) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2003
Bottled. Deep copper bronze, almost chestnut. Thin but lasting head and moderate condition. Slight mouldy mushroom aroma at beginning but faint roasty dunkel note soon takes over. Quite thin and flavourless in the mouth although some hop flavour is noticable. Finish is slight and forgetable.

A better but my no means great Mexican beer. Biggest complaint is how watery it is.

The colour is fine as is the malty aroma on the pour. In the glass it has a similar malt finish without a great balance of hop bitterness which is typical of the style.

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.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
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
