This is probably the best beer I’ve had out of Mexico to date. It may be because someone appears to have actually put some thought into what they’re brewing. Nice German malt aroma. Good deep amber color with average head. Average palate with good carbonation. Smooth taste that was good malty representation of the style. Clean and a little bready. Balanced well.

Draft poured with minimal head. Light brown with some carbonation. Slight aftertaste but not bad.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass Appearance: pours a thin white head that falls quickly. Very mild lacing. Color is a clear light brown with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: lightly roasted barley and not much else. Very mild. Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: a bit of caramel and nuttiness, toasted bread, maybe a hint of hops in the finish. Overall: light and easy drinking, I’m sure this will pair well with carb-heavy, spicy Mexican food.

Far too much alcohol in the taste for me. It also tastes quite cheap. Not my kind of beer.

Bottle in tulum mexico. Aroma is subtle, but with a bit of maltiness. Very clean and smooth , good body for the style. Finishes with just a bit of dryness but still smooth.

Brune claire, reflet orangé translucide. Mousse qui diminue vite couleur beige. Sensation aqueuse, touche de caramel, légère acidité en fin de bouche

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 I rated this beer for what it is and what it’s supposed to be. An easy drinking beer that goes great with spicy food. My favorite Mexican brew. Having pepperoni, onion and serano pepper pizza with this beer. If your expecting a hop bomb double IPA this isn’t it and every beer doesn’t have to blow you’re taste buds. Taste good, refreshing.

Absolutely terrible. A poor man’s take on a dark beer and goes hand in hand with the regular terrible modelo.

Bottle. Clear amber copper beer with a beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, nuts and bread. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, nuts, vanilla and chocolate. Slightly sweet.

YigSvartka (107) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Nearly opaque brown with a quickly dissipating head. Stunted roast, chocolate, dried fruit and caramel aroma. Surprisingly not bad. Smooth, but also slightly thin and watery. Each sip lacks complexity and longevity of flavour, but mild roast, chocolate, and caramel all coalesce and present an enjoyable taste, albeit slightly weak. Absolutely no hops. Simple and smooth.
