2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
