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.

No head, slight lacing on the glass. Malty nose, leading to a toffee-vanilla sweet finish. A Vienna style beer from Mexico. Putting a lime in this beer would make no sense as there is no skunk to cover up. Come on people, this is ONLY a Mexican beer because it is made in Mexico. in acuallity it is one of the few remaining Vienna style beers commercialy available. Very drinkable, sweet beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pours a dark mahogany, with lots of carbonation and head that dissipates quickly. Nice fruit nose, slightly sweet. Very smooth, and very light flavors, not a lot of body to this beer. Fruity aftertaste.

Suprising for a Mexican beer. I like it. Red brown color, no head at all, very few bubbles. Different flavor from anything else I've had before and can't place it. This is the first mexican beer I have had that doesn't require fruit.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Dark amber appearance with an average sized head. Subtle, caramel malt aroma failed to leave any impression. Watered down, artificially sweet, cola-like taste. Light bodied with a lot of carbonation. Short lived finish.

Has a darkish brown color with some carbonation and a malted smell. Taste is of some slightly roasted malted and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall it is one of the better Mexican beers, but that isn't saying much...

A bit darker than your other mexican beers. Try this next time you order a burrito, it's got better hop and malt flavor than the typical mexican beer.

Pretty ordinary stuff, but I really liked the bottle. It struck me as being a well-made beer for the masses.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 20, 2003
The common thread throughout most of these tasting is the fact that although nothing special, this is probably the best mass-produced Mexican beers. I will concur. Heck I'll even (gasp!) put a lime in this one at a Mexican place once in a while. It is not an attractive beer, and the mouthfeel is poor, but it helps with the Habenero pepper fire...

This dark mexican beer is better than most mexican beer, but the spicy and not that pleasant taste and boring looks makes this a beer that i'll never buy again.
