Has a darkish brown color with some carbonation and a malted smell. Taste is of some slightly roasted malted and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall it is one of the better Mexican beers, but that isn't saying much...

A bit darker than your other mexican beers. Try this next time you order a burrito, it's got better hop and malt flavor than the typical mexican beer.

Pretty ordinary stuff, but I really liked the bottle. It struck me as being a well-made beer for the masses.

The common thread throughout most of these tasting is the fact that although nothing special, this is probably the best mass-produced Mexican beers. I will concur. Heck I'll even (gasp!) put a lime in this one at a Mexican place once in a while. It is not an attractive beer, and the mouthfeel is poor, but it helps with the Habenero pepper fire...

This dark mexican beer is better than most mexican beer, but the spicy and not that pleasant taste and boring looks makes this a beer that i'll never buy again.

By no means great, but certainly the best mexican beer I've had.

Bottled. This beer poured a light brown color with a malty caramel nose. A lot of malt in this beer, but it is kinda one dimensional due to the lack of hops. A hops presence would surely make this a better beer.

Reddish-brown. Slight malt aroma. Decent malt flavor but definitely lacking. Light-bodied. If I had to drink anything from Mexico it would be this.
