A very basic vienna style lager. Very drinkable.

Surprisingly decent Mexican dark beer, not a stout or anything, but better than most beers brewed south of the border.

A very satisfying dark beer. Better than the Dos Equis Vienna Red Lager I normally order. A good, full malty body with a nice hop balance.

Thank God for this beer. If it wasn’t for this beer there wouldn’t be anything fine to drink at most Tex/Mex places here in the states. Nicely light malt flavor with a hint of a smooth roasted character. Mild hops and crisply fermented. Well paired with mole or anyhting spicy and meaty.

It is the best of the available mexican brews. That said it isn’t among the best vienna styles I have had.

Terrific beer. Nice with or without lime. Great with taco’s or just chillin’. Same price as about any beer on a menu, I get it at restaurants.
Cool looking bottle, surprisgly dark. A good intro to darker beers that scores extra points for being 6%.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Bottle: A beer from Mexico that can be considered a 'good' beer. A decent body and flavor, although both could be a bit more. Darkness is deceiving!

A light Ale (in taste, not color). Light body, good aftertaste. Probably the best Mexican beer that I have had.

Great mexican dark beer in the European style. A nice beer on a cold day. Silky mouthfeel, coffee and chocolatey aromas and flavors. The best Mexican beer by far.

Weak aroma, but what there is is not bad. Easily the best looking of the widely available Mexican beers. It is dark in color but oh so light in flavor. It is rather confusing. But it is incredibly easy to drink on those hot lawn mowing days. it is also less likely to go skunky in its dark bottles than most other mexican beers.
