UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 The appearance may not be perfect and the aroma is strong, but still leaves something to be desired. The taste is what makes this a great beer and, when it comes down to it, that should be what matters anyway. My only hope is that it is soon imported to my part of the world.

One of the beers I order when dining in a Mexican restaurant. Goes great with the food. Looks good, with a dark body and tan head. Some aroma of caramel and malts. Flavor is nothing remarkable but it is tasty and is a good choice for the food.

Amber in color, as far as commercial beers from Mexico go this is by far the best. Mild maltyness, somewhat thin in body. I've noticed that the label in some places that I've had it (Illinois?) bill it as a "dark ale" while most everywhere else it is billed as a "dark beer". When dining out at a mexican resturant, this is your best choice, but make sure to let the waiter/waitress know that if there is a lime anywhere near it when they serve it there will be no tip.

Deep brown coloring with virtually no head. Pretty thin for a dark beer, but it went very well with my Mexican food.

I was just trying something new..didn't realize it was a dark beer. I was surprised it was a dark beer. Turned out it wasn't bad. Rather thin and watery for a dark but nevertheless, it's ok. I would drink again. Oh, if you get this is a restraunt and then try to stick a lime in it give them a look of horror and tell em to shove the lime where it belongs - in a Corona. The lime will kill this beer!

Nice to have a dark beer from Mexico! Not very much to it though, this really is just a dark lager with very little aroma and flavor.

This wasn't bad at all; it had a nice refreshing crisp and worked well to give my palate a break from stronger stuff. just sucks that chevys served me it in a frosted mug with a lime! WTF!

This poured an almost maroon, reddish brown color with large fizzy head that quickly disappeared, but adhered to the glass. The aroma is caramel-malty. The beer has that corn-starch flavor common to too many macros, but it's still not too bad. There's a hint of nut and woodiness here, too, that rescues it from awfulness.
