This dark vienna-munich type beer has had extraordinary acceptance in international markets. Exports to the U.S. began in the early 80´s, and have since attained great success in Europe, Australia, Central and South America.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Smooth textured with nice malty overtone. Bad head retention. Nice dark copper color. Sweetness begins around mid-bottle, lingers for a short stay after swallow.

Slightly metallic, but not unplesant aroma. Little to no head, which is unusual for a dark beer but not atypical for a Mexican beer. The taste is actually rather robust and much better than I originally expected. It is very easy to drink and carries some notes of sweetness in the aftertaste. A pleasant brew.

Nice dark chocolate brown color, clear with a very thin head. Mild bitterness in the early part of the taste, with a smooth finish. Nothing particularly wonderful about the beer overall, but a decent easy to find mexican beer.

This is be confused as an ale but it is the best of the mass produced mexican beers. Good body and strong bitter flavor. Goes great with real mexican food

this beer is similar to a Vienna style lager, bitter sweet with a taste of chocolate character.

I thought this was great and mysterious. It has a TON of flavor. It is full, and hard to pinpoint what they derive from too. It is dark, with a huge head, and is robust. I would not just drink it to kick back with, but it is certainly a worthy beer. I liked it. (Cool stubby bottle too)

Sparkling bright copper appearance. The nose is of light caramel and hops, somewhat sweet. The body is lightly sweet and has a long sweet bitterness. Can get a bit sweet toward the end, but the hops are enjoyable.

As I expected - that "fake" dark chalky malt flavor. fizzy, thin. Not as much flavor as the appearance would indicate. I suppose it’ll do with your mexican food, I’d just about rather have water.

One of the only available dark mexican beers. Between Corona, Tacate, and Sol, this wins hands down. Slightly watered down taste for the color, but I don’t know this style very well. Tasty though! I drink this regularly at Cafe Ole.
