By far my favorite Mexican beer. Goes especially nice with a big platter of carne asada and refried beans. Good caramelly and malty flavors, somewhat crisp dry hop finish. Not something I’d pick up if I weren’t in a mexican mood though.

Overall a surprise from the brewers of that swill CARONA. Why this is not their most popular beer is proof that if you advertise people will drink $h*T and pay a lot for it. I could do without the lime though, save it for a diet coke. Very good and a neat bottle.

I’ll have to rerate this when I get it in a glass, but I had it from a bottle in a restaurant and it tasted pretty good. Good medium body, nice roasted malty/slightly sweet flavour, and it goes damn well with spicy catfish tacos.

My favorite of the mexican beers. Nice dark color. A little watered down for this style, but that is part of it’s appeal when mixed with Mexican cuisine.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark lager like beer. Nice light malt aroma of slight hops. Taste is really all on its own. I have this every time I have Mexican food. I really like this beer as it is decently bodied and really has a great flavor. Not like most of the Mexican beers I’ve had. Good stuff.

My summer standby. What I order when I don’t want to choose something new from the 100+ list o’ beers.
Malty, a little complex, goes great with a plate of nachos. And I even like the color.

Had this at a Mexican restaurant. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma is faintly malty. Taste is moderatley sweet with notes of roasted malt. Not much flavor to speak of. Mouthfeel was thin. Not bad, but has nothing to offer either.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Interesting beer, hard to find this type in Mexico, although it’s creamy, it is a little "light" when compare it against other Vienna style beers.
