UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small light brown head of small to medium sized bubbles that quickly faded away and left a good lacing. It has a transparent dark brown body. It has a slightly fizzy smooth malty taste and a malty aroma.

Tan head, deep reddish gold colored body. Not much aroma aside from some maltiness. Smoky malt flavor. Acceptable but not exceptional.

best mexican beer.

Just a perfect beer.

Shopped a lot of foreign beers, a lot of disappointments. This was a surprice. Dark and fine head. Little sweetness in aroma and a lot of fine fruit flavor. But not complex.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2003 Very clearly one of the top major beers exported from Mexico, and one I should drink more often when I see it on restaurant menus. Pours a bright red-brown with a nice bubbly head. There's a light musty caramel aroma. The flavor is better than the aroma though, with clean sweet-caramel/toffee malt palate. Light balancing bitterness in the finish. Interestingly the flavor is full but the body is light, giving a very drinkable balanced beer.

Light amber with a brief white frothy head. Medium bodied with fruity, caramel malt aromas. Clean and refreshing, a good example of mexican beer, just stay away from the ubiquitous limes.

Much better Vienna than some other Mexican breweries. It went down smooth and the flavor wasn't too harsh. A good beer for introducing people to dark beer.

Pleasant brownish red color but utterly headless. Little carbonation, medium bodied, and smooth. Pleasantly malty aroma. Flavor mostly follows suit, sweet caramel maltiness. Well-done and understated hop presence in the finish. No need for lime!

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2006 Light copper. Short lived head. Slightly sweet malt flavor. My favorite Mexican beer--goes great with fajitas.

I think this is a great Vienna style beer! Often, if you buy it retail, you get an old bottle. You need fresh beer. The fresh beer is great! This beer could stand a little more malt body, but otherwise is a perfect example of the style. Truly awesome and a very drinkable beer.
