Seems like it’d be a decent summery alternative to Carona. Dark looking, but fairly watery nonetheless. A hoppy/malty hint provides the decent flavor. Enjoyable.

I actually drink this beer outside of Mexican restaurants. I like it in the summer, I find it refreshing and delicious with spicy food. My one complaint is that they put the foil over the top which makes it tough to drink out of the bottle. Otherwise this would be a perfect campfire beer. Also it’s a bit over-priced. Quite respectable though, I’d be interested to put it next to other Vienna Lagers.

For such a boring bottle - this was great! I am so happy to have a good Mexican beer to order now instead of being limited to Crappy Corona.

Not much of an aroma, light hops. Nice dark amber color, not really a ’dark’ beer. Has a light watery texture, very easy to put a few of these away. Trace of malt favor with a hop aftertaste. Another one of what I call ’light dark beers’. Not bad though. I’d drink it again.

If you are at a Mexican restaurant, please get this instead of Corona. Coppery colored and not very hearty for a darker beer but I can’t complain too much, as it went great with my enchiladas.

Slight chocolate/burnt caramel on the nose. Smooth and dry and tasted rather flat. The restaraunt I tried this in served it with a glass on the side rimmed with salt and a lime. They said they served all their beers this way......

ruddy amber. functional head, but no extra credit there. better than dos equis amber for sure, but that’s not saying much. decent malt presence, i get a hint of corn tortilla and perhaps cumin, but i reckon that’s because i’m tasting it in an authentic mexican restaurant. modest sweetness, brisk palate, a trace of hoppiness. the food seemed to wash down pretty good, so cleansing and refreshing are the operative discriptions.
