UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 The best Mexican beer Ive had to date. Aroma is of caramel and very similar to the aroma of many brown ales Ive had. Appearance is a transparent brown. Flavor is smooth and malty with some hints of caramel and chocolate. Good beer. This would be my Cinco De Mayo beer of choice while all the other clowns at the restaurant get Corona and act cool when they stick their thumb in the bottle and turn it upside to get the lime to go to the bottom? Why do people do that anyway??!!

I'm amazed that such a dark beer has such little flavor. When it first hits your tongue it has some taste, but after that, nothing. The best things about this beer are the bottle and the way it looks in the glass. It's better than Dos Equis though. Maybe I just don't like viennas.

The best beer from Mexico I've tried. Has some English charater. I've only seen this at resturants so It comes expensive. Blots out the hot food!

Bitter but still manages to be smooth. The best thing is, you can get it at most Mexican restaurants.

This brew had a decent lacing to it.In my opinion it has a fruity aroma to it.I found this brew to have a bitter aftertaste.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small light brown head of small to medium sized bubbles that quickly faded away and left a good lacing. It has a transparent dark brown body. It has a slightly fizzy smooth malty taste and a malty aroma.

Tan head, deep reddish gold colored body. Not much aroma aside from some maltiness. Smoky malt flavor. Acceptable but not exceptional.

Hansen (6873) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2003
Shopped a lot of foreign beers, a lot of disappointments. This was a surprice. Dark and fine head. Little sweetness in aroma and a lot of fine fruit flavor. But not complex.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2003 Very clearly one of the top major beers exported from Mexico, and one I should drink more often when I see it on restaurant menus. Pours a bright red-brown with a nice bubbly head. There's a light musty caramel aroma. The flavor is better than the aroma though, with clean sweet-caramel/toffee malt palate. Light balancing bitterness in the finish. Interestingly the flavor is full but the body is light, giving a very drinkable balanced beer.
