Weak aroma, a little bit on the sweet side. I'll describe the color as coca-cola brown, and it had some head that didn't last long. The flavor is a little bit sweet, and almost a little bit like a nut brown ale, but not as rich. Good beer to go with spicer foods.

Not bad for a Mexican beer. Very nice color, but the taste really wasn't what I was expecting from a darker beer. Oh well, it gets props for being a Mexican beer you aren't expected to have a lime with.

bierkoning (10911) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2004
5,3% on the label. The aroma only has a bit of licorice and glue. Sweetish, grainy flavor with apple and only a hint of licorice. Caramel. Thin and watery. Just a bit soapy and sweet aftertaste. Disappointing beer.

wpp83 (64) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
On the pour the appearance was very nice, with a dark amber to copper tone. The head poured thick, but was a little short-lived. The predominant taste was of a tart hint. Genuinely an easy to drink beer, though not the best Mexican in my opinion.

Poured a dark copper color with a thin head that prompty dissappeared. Aroma was weak but attractive, primarily malty. Flavor was predominantly sweet and malty, but become more bitter towards the finish. Thin mouthfeel, but definitely easy to drink. I wasn't strongly impressed, but I'll say that it's the best of the Mexican beers that I've had (Corona, Tecate, etc.).

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2004
Dark amber, medium head. Sweet malty, but pretty light nose. Medium body, lightly carbonated, a bit watery texture. Flavor is moderately bitter, a bit sweet, a bit dry, pretty malty. Dryer finish. Wasn't as good as I expected, but definitely better than Sol!

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Bottle- dark amber or reddish in color, medium bits of hops in the taste same goes with the malts. The flavor is weak and somewhat wattery but has the presence of malts. Easy drink, not bad

I usually have this at the local mexican resturant. This beer pours like a coke. It looks like a coke . The flavor is pretty weak but not terrible. I would recommend it if the only other choices are Bud and Corona!

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Clear, dark amber color with hardly any head. Aroma is sweet caramel-malty, perfumed, and almost port-wineous - but still quite thin. Taste is caramel-malty, clean and sweet. Light to medium-bodied, oily and moderately carbonated palate. A dark lager brewed with Mexican standards. Quite strange but ok.

Bottle. To be honest, I drank it out of the bottle, so I'll just assume the appearance is average. A bit of a malty aroma. Taste is nothing special, but you can taste the malt a little. This is certainly a good alternative to drinking a crap American lager. With food it was very good.
