My favorite mexican beer. Way better than Corona, Dos Equis, etc. A dark beer but doesn't have a bad bitter taste.

Bottled. Dark golden colour. Pleasant smooth malt nose. On a pleasant warm summer night in London, standing around the BBQ, this beer went down a treat. I was really back to my Ratebeer best. Smooth soft white head, that persisted throughout. The body was silky soft that transitioned through to the palate.

Malty aroma. Clear, dark red appearance, not much head. Taste is malty, sweet, watery. Not much palate.

Well, It has a nice bottle. Maybe I got an old bottle. I didn't think there was all that much carbonation. Not flat, but seems like it should have been more. Very Malty, and I tasted No Hops at all. Head evaporated almost immediately, and there was no lacing either. Based on this experience, I would not purchase this again. I might drink it if given to me with no other choices and I was really thirsty for a beer.

Probably one the better beers to come out of Mexico. Decent malt nose and flavor. Slightly fruity with good roasted notes. Mouthfeel is a little thin, but this is a good beer to have with any Mexican dish.

Most beer enthusiasts have tried this beer at a Mexican restaurant at some point. It's an amber beer with a khaki-colored, medium-sized, rocky head. It was served too cold in an icy and was pretty much flavorless, but went well with the spicy food. I have yet to find a Vienna style brew that I would drink in the absence of food, but that's me. Better than most Mexican/beach beers. No skunk!!

I get this beer when I can't decide if I want a banana, a coffee, or a beer. To me it tastes like a mix of the three.

Got this with a lime wedge. i can see doing that with an awful beer like Corona, but not this. Nice dark color with a good hoppy taste. the best Mexican beer i've had so far.

Toasted malt nose on the pour is very good. Unfortunately the beer always looks crappy when poured as its large CO2 bubbles quickly dissipate leaving a watery over carbonated product in the mug. Flavor is actually pretty good for a macro brew, but the lack of body and overcarbonation make this beer much worse than it really is.

Why do restaurants ruin this with a lime wedge in the opening? A big roasted barley and caramel flavor creeps through this one. It's a little thinner than expected, but a good beer nonetheless.
