Certainly one of the best available beers in Mexico, as it is flavourful and not too heavy - perfect for beach consumption. Dark amber and sweetly malty. All I drink (when available) in Mexico.

zathrus13 (1764) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Dark brown/amber, with a tan head. Aromas of sweet malt and brown sugar. Flavor is much like the aroma, sweet malt and brown sugar. Body is medium to thin. Not bad, but $7.50 a six pack makes it too expensive for the taste.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Bottle - malty sweet aroma with a little must. Very pretty copper/bronze color. Smallish off-white head that fights and hangs on. Same sweetness in the flavor. Almost a hint of rye in there somewhere. Slight fizziness. I remember 15 or so years ago that I saw an article calling this the world’s best beer. I certainly wouldn’t agree with that, but it’s better than I remember. Not bad - a nice surprise!

another recent from my brother in law who’s just discovered it. I just discovered that I’d never rated it. Another one we drink during Mexican jaunts. It’s just especial with toasted malt. Nothing to write home about. Reminds me of Michelob Dark.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
bottle. Dark clear brown color, thin white head. Smells like malt and molasses. This beer is like a mixt of water and molasses, not a good one, keep trying. Cette biere est de couleur brune foncee avec une tres faible mousse a l’odeur de malt et de melasse. Au gout, elle est tres aqueuse, aucune rondeur en bouche, on dirait un melange d’eau et de melasse.

Not as watered down as some of the other Mexican beers but still far from full bodied. It is also sweeter. Has a sweet malty smell and the aftertaste matches it exactly. It does taste a little like a bock worth a try.

Goodfieldnohit (9) - Canadian, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2004 does not count
Pours nice with a thinnish head. In many respects is like Shiner Bock. A good average beer.

First, let me say this is a favorite in Mexico and at mexican reseraunts and I will re-rate it in a better situation, but it was lunch time and I felt like rating. 12 oz bottle. Tasted at Chipotles in a laminated paper cup. Kinda hard to guage the color or head, but it was amber brown with a large off white head, nice lacing. It was served out of their fridge way too cold. Malty aroma. Malty, sweetish, roasty flavor, some hops backing that added a small amount of fruity/floral flavors. Nice dry finish with some lingering malt flavor. This was excellent with my spicy burrito.

this beer ain’t too bad for mexican crap, pours a nice dark brown with the consistency of a light porter, very german in style and taste like a bock, flavor seams somewhat like Pacifico but with a little more malt and a more flavorful body.
