COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The only real complaint you can have about this beer is that the flavor is definitely thin. What flavor there is, is pleasant. Little to no hops in aroma or taste makes this a very easy drinking beer. There’s also a little more to the palate than you’d expect from the light taste. If you ever get a beer craving in a Mexican restaurant, this and Dos Equis are your only two real choices.

At first I was astounded at the lack of any aroma. The taste was pretty comparable to an American macro. Even though I came from a bottle, there was an awfull metallic after taste with this beer. From what I have read, it looks like is one of the top beers offered by Mexico, so I don’t have high hopes for the rest. Overall Very week.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2002
Kind of mild flavors for a beer that claims to be dark. But a very smooth, consistant taste that is quite refrshing. At the very least, it is better than any American macro-brew.

Very pure taste which might take a little getting used to. I’ll only drink it when I’m on vacation (in mexico...as it happens)

Like the lumpy bits... Quite fast paced cause there is not a lot of body to it. Still, pass me another nad I’ll force it down. Stuff about treacle, hopps etc.

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.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2002
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.
