This is a good Mexican beer. I like this one. It is a satisfying beer. One does not generally desire to drink so much of it. It is thick, full, and hefty - mouth-filling. It is not sweet but remiscent of life's bittersweet. I will now end my rambling: Try Pacifico with a lime for a lighter Mexican beer.

I liked this beer a lot. This is a beer that you drink when you want something a little lighter without going to a typical domestic.

A dark beer with a malty taste and a slightly hoppy finish. I usually don't pay much attention to head, but I've never actually seen any on this beer. ONe of the best Mexican beers.

Sold everywhere, but my most fond memories are of drinking this one in Tijuana at 50 cents a bottle. Goes great with mexican polka music and all the other Austrian-influences there. Thanks Emperor Maximillian!

Weak aroma, a little bit on the sweet side. I'll describe the color as coca-cola brown, and it had some head that didn't last long. The flavor is a little bit sweet, and almost a little bit like a nut brown ale, but not as rich. Good beer to go with spicer foods.

Not bad for a Mexican beer. Very nice color, but the taste really wasn't what I was expecting from a darker beer. Oh well, it gets props for being a Mexican beer you aren't expected to have a lime with.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
5,3% on the label. The aroma only has a bit of licorice and glue. Sweetish, grainy flavor with apple and only a hint of licorice. Caramel. Thin and watery. Just a bit soapy and sweet aftertaste. Disappointing beer.

On the pour the appearance was very nice, with a dark amber to copper tone. The head poured thick, but was a little short-lived. The predominant taste was of a tart hint. Genuinely an easy to drink beer, though not the best Mexican in my opinion.

Poured a dark copper color with a thin head that prompty dissappeared. Aroma was weak but attractive, primarily malty. Flavor was predominantly sweet and malty, but become more bitter towards the finish. Thin mouthfeel, but definitely easy to drink. I wasn't strongly impressed, but I'll say that it's the best of the Mexican beers that I've had (Corona, Tecate, etc.).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber, medium head. Sweet malty, but pretty light nose. Medium body, lightly carbonated, a bit watery texture. Flavor is moderately bitter, a bit sweet, a bit dry, pretty malty. Dryer finish. Wasn't as good as I expected, but definitely better than Sol!
