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.

drank this one from the bottle, but i have had it from a glass before. The beer had a nice malty presence, but still had a dirty taste to it like modelo special. The beer was not too intreresting.

Color is light brown with some reddish tones around the bottom and edges of the glass, it gained a good sized head but fizzed away like a soda pop with a mist about it. Smells of a more favorably roasted malt then most Mexican beers, but still has some grainy musk and a small hop note. Taste is roasted malt, slightly earthy and musky, but not dull or bad, just there. Its bolder in the malt, not sweet, but around the darker brown style of some nut browns or dark lagers. Has a medium body, smooth and rounded, with a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

Much better than it's brewery-mate (Corona). This beer is good with or without a lime. I especially like the almost-chocolatey undertones.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2003
A not-so bad lager. Dark caramel/red color with a thin white head. Light malty aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty, though thin like the body. If this was cheaper, it would make a good macroswill.

A darker caramel and richer chocolate flavor than Dos Equis. I would prefer the latter--it is a bit cleaner. Not bad though.

Kinz (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Not bad, usually the best you can find at a Mexican place. Amber brown, fizzy short lasting head. Some light, smooth slightly toasted malts, touch of bitterness on finish. Hair of adjunct flavor in the back.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2003 Was my favorite of the Mexican beers until I discovered XX Amber. Deep red with not much head to speak of. Malts are obvious. Slightly funky finish but nothing bad.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Had this along with a corona while eating Mexican, and cannot believe the contrast...best Mexican beer I know of. Dark ruby, malty, fruity, and sweet.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Mildly sweet & malty with a watery thin body. Lightly bitter at the end with an unpleasant sour aftertaste.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2003
Tastes cheap. Sweet, kinda corny, I suppose better than your average American brewski as far as actual flavour, but too much of it makes me feel kinda ill (to be fair, it wasn't very cold). I actually poured half of it in the sink, which I hardly ever do. Not refreshing, more like one of those sweet malt-pops you sometimes find in Israeli restaurants.
