A very good beer. Fine for everyday drinking. The flavors aren’t as bold nor are as they complex as I would like, but this brew at least HAS some flavor and is very well balanced. Extremely drinkable and nice with food too.

The dark color fools you. You expect something great and end up disappointed.

I would classify this as a light dark beer. It’s a little watered down, and unlike most other dark beers. However, the best I have had to come out of mexico.

Hmmm... a beer with the appearance of cola - including the large bubbles, almost no aroma and only sweet and caramel flavors. But it says ’Imported’ on the label so it MUST be good.

Can’t seem to justify paying for a boring beer like this. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty good stuff, probably my favorite mexican, but nothing special. Dark beer should tate darker than lighter varieties, but I find a certain well-known Amber to be much more flavorful in the dark sense. The gold foil is nice, though.

Last time I’ll ask Pablo for the recommendation, boring sweet thing, of mediocrity. It even gets down funky way too quickly. miss...

I definitely wouldn’t call this ’dark’ anything. It’s more like a less-paler version of a lager. Since they consider this a dark beer, I fell strange saying I liked it.

Dark? Yes. But on the label, they call it an ale (grin). Nope. It’s a light lager. A bit of malt, a bit of hops, a dab of sweetness, and a dab of flavor. Better than any American Macroswill, and one of the best beers I can think of for ’weaning’ any redneck who thinks MGD is ’great shit!’ If you are more of a real beer fan, this is no regret buying or drinking, but no regret never seeing again, either. Better than Corona, and that’s a compliment in itself. If you want to see what this beer is *trying* to taste like, find a place that has Dos Equis XX on draft, and try that - there ya go!

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, cereal), with light notes of metal shavings and chemicals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. On the cusp of being drinkable. Among the macro Mexican offerings, Bohemia is your best bet, not this one (this is rated higher probably because of its use of darker malts).

A Vienna style from Mexico - who’d a thunk it? This is a beer that is best drunk cold and accompanied by food (Mexican or Italian).
