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.

I've had this beer on tap in Guadalajara Mexico. This is an example of a beer which does not travel well to the US. On tap it's a well carbonated, but not evercarbonated beer. It's got some evidence of adjuncts, a corny flavor at times, but a nice balance of full flavor and fairly light body.

Dark amber color; poor head persistence. Hop and metallic sensation in the nose. Dry, light taste, with a lot of caramel and a residual sweetness in the middle. Pretty watery final.

The best Mexican beer I have tried. Ice tea colored, low carbonation, little head. Malt aroma, clean and smooth going down, slightly sweet with a little tang on the tounge.

Bubbly copper body with a mild spicy, sweet and refreshing flavor. Not too shabby. I like this way better than Dos Equis, Corona, and other more popular Mexican beers. Unique packaging in gold foil and stubby bottle.

Kinda felt a bit overcarbonated to me... such that it even hit the flavor of the beer. But I could tell it had a nice bitter refreshing aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Smooth textured with nice malty overtone. Bad head retention. Nice dark copper color. Sweetness begins around mid-bottle, lingers for a short stay after swallow.

Archimedes99 (27) - Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Slightly metallic, but not unplesant aroma. Little to no head, which is unusual for a dark beer but not atypical for a Mexican beer. The taste is actually rather robust and much better than I originally expected. It is very easy to drink and carries some notes of sweetness in the aftertaste. A pleasant brew.
