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.

One of the only available dark mexican beers. Between Corona, Tacate, and Sol, this wins hands down. Slightly watered down taste for the color, but I don’t know this style very well. Tasty though! I drink this regularly at Cafe Ole.

What was that? Way to hyped up as a good dark ale. As soon as I took a sip I knew I had made a big mistake, it was weak in flavor, smell, body and appearance!

This only geta a 2 on appearance for deception: The claim that it is a dark ale, when in reality it is neither. It wasn’t nearly as offensive as other Mexican lagers. Decent mouthfeel, but there’s no getting around the weak flavor and aroma. A bit of caramel, fruits, nothing special.

Malty flavor of a vienna-style lager, but has the acidity of many Mexican beers that I have tried. Very much like Dos Equis Amber with sharper hops and less malt. Not very hearty (watery) but is much better than other Corona products.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 It's Mexican, not expensive, and sold in supermarkets. It has everything going against it, but it's not bad. A real surprise for me, very subtle flavors without coming across as watery. Somewhat satisfying. Nice packaging, I love the foil around the top so that when I'm pouring into my glass there's no *klink* sound.

Slightly better than the standard Mexican beer. Dark color, faint aroma, watery mouthfeel. A litle too sweet for my tastes.

Used to like this one a whole lot more. Now that the Texmex eateries are branching into having ever better beers I’ll likely not have one for a while. Still, for the old school Mexican brews it has more flavor and body than most.
