One of my favorite of the Mexican beers. Actually prefer it to Dos Equis. I like the slightly sweet character with spicy Mexican food. Very smooth and drinkable if not a bit weak.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. pourrs a watery dark brown with a thin head that runs for the hills quickly. sweet caramel nose that isn’t as good as it sounds. sour honey flavor that doesn’t have enough balance. needs more hop and malt profile, i don’t know how, but that is how it tastes. i don’t like this. horrid mouthfeel. very unpleasant makes me think someone poured some kind of vegetable oil in this.

Not a bad beer from Mexico. Actually had some malt flavor. Easy drinking vienna without that cheap Mexican flavor

Dark beer, not too much flavor, but a little too sweet for me, I didn’t really like this one.

Very very very sweet dark beer. Little too watery, not big enough head when poured. Between horrible and somewhat decent.

Caramel colored with a malted nose. VERY sweet. Light hop flavor. As far as I can tell, based on what I’ve heard, this is the only Mexican beer worth drinking. Nothing all too special, a bit like Amber Bock.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost brown with a small, firm head.
A dark and malty flavour with notes of chocolate.
A bit thin unfortunately.

Pours dark caramel. Pretty nondeScript nose. Malt properties are evident. Nice with the food from the same area. This is better than most of the offerings from Mexico that I’ve had.

Dark golden/Amber, small head. Aroma is malty and also brings some milk. The malt is there in the flavor as well. Quite pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a garnet colour. Rich malty aroma. Flavourful and malty. Smallish notes of chocolate. Maybe a bit ashy. A nice surprise.
