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.

Hmmm...not overall a terrible Mexican offering. Vienna? Yep, somewhat so, in it’s dark caramel toastiness (not too deep, mind you). A bit sweet, yes, but solid...or I have low standards! But can I get a hop?

It’s a dark mexican beer....you can taste the mexican in it...and i dont find it anything really special. It is hard to drink more than a few of and isn’t very smooth.

Had one of these in a bottle at Max and Erma’s restrant in Dublin, as it was the featured "Beer of the Month". Mild nose of toasted malt and caramel. Pours a sparkling medium copper. The large off-white head was almost creamy, mostly lasting and had ok lacing. Mild malt flavor with light acidity and a bready sweet finish. Medium smooth body that is both dry and lively and finishes mostly clean. Decent.

Pours dark amber. Has some dark fruity tastes that add to a strange sweetness. Not a bad cheap drinkable beer.

Brown, with a creamy head and good lace. Slightly sweet malt flavor

One of my favorite mexican beers. Of course that is kind of like being the best hitting pitcher in baseball. Smooth, slightly malty beer. A little watery, no aroma to speak of. Its good with mexican food, though.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 I was eating mexican at the time..and all the flavors clashed in burnt malty carnitas quesadillas...with a strange hop bite that could have been the guacamole for all i know...I think it was pretty dark tasting..but what is 'dark tasting'...I dont know...lots more going on compared to its amigos
