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.

Dark amber color,quickly disappearing head,just a touch of fruit in the aroma, soft smooth flavor although somewhat faint,lightly carbonated,would chose over Corona in a Mexican resturant, if it cost about the same

Well this is better than most other Mexican beers that I have had. Some aromas of dark malt, some hop also noticable. Not bad, but the flavors are pretty tame.

JK (4476) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Heavily carbonated. Brown. There is a roasted flavor with lots of malt and the taste of alcohol. Unimpressive.

Better than the dos equis amber I tasted it against. Faint malt aroma, red-orange, little head to speak of. Medium body and carbonation with a decent malt presence. Finishes fairly clean. Attractive bottling.

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.

MaBeer1972 (1330) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2003
A decent Vienna. Nothing too exciting though. Malt flavor is spoiled by a bit of fizziness. On the milder size, not too sweet.

rauchbier (3612) - 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.
