Fatehunter (1238) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Poured into a wide flute glass. Dark copper color with a tight inch and half of head. Looks nice. Smells malty but there is a hint of corn... which does not help. It would be great without that bit of corn. Watery taste at first, then malty (every so slightly roasted malt), finishes with a mild hop presence. Nothing too impressive. Light and crisp in the mouth. Low carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall for a dunkel lager it lacks the malt body, however for an easy drinking lager it is nice.

på flaske på en meksikans bar i Kings road, London. Mørk, men gjennomsiktig i fargen. aroma og smak med et klart preg av nøtter. Passer glimrende til meksikansk mat.

scotchzombie (334) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pours dark chestnut brown with a small white head that amounts to a rim and coating. Aroma is corn and caramel malt. Taste follow the aroma: roasty malt, caramel, toffee. On the sweet side. Flavors are not deep, but this is a better beer than you might think. Very drinkable.

varanid99 (520) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
Chestnut brown pour with a thin pale brown head. Sweet, caramel, slightly nutty aroma. Similar taste - sweet, caramel, a little toasty, nutty. Some light bitterness at the end. A bit thin but overall not terrible

Clear, dark brown, thin tan head. Malty and a little nutty aroma. Sweet medium malt taste. Kinda boring.

hfmejias (731) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle at a local (Dover, DE) Mexican restaurant. Poured clear amber small head and nice lacing. Aroma of malts and maybe some roast. Taste is similar, malty, sweet a bit of a dry finish. This is not bad, it’s drinkable and refreshing.

olliejobbins (804) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Had a few bottles of this in central america. Very nice change from the usual pretty average lagers. Slightly more bitter than most of the other stuff on offer but there really isn’t too much to the taste. Just not offensive. Refreshing and easily drinkable but really not something full of flavour!

Roser (33) - Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Appearance- fairly decent foamy light tan head that lasted a good bit. Nice lacing. Clear mahogany brown. Very inviting. Smell- clean, spicy, malt, ginger. Taste- toasted malt. Slightly sugary. Hints of caramel and fig. Mouthfeel- light, smooth, creamy. Very good balance. Overall- very nice/pleasant. Enjoyable throughout. One of the better Vienna lagers available in wide release. Would go well with many meals (very food friendly), or all alone. Something I’d be glad to serve others who may not have the broadest of beer palates (i.e. parties, picnics, etc.) Not what I normally reach for, but would definitely have again. Cheers!

Much better than the normal pale lagers from Mexico . Dark , similar to a schwarzbier. I should have ditched the lime sooner. It did add a little bit of flavor , but may have obstructed some of this beers character .
