330ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with no head. Very sweet and slightly yeasty aroma. Sweetness and malt. A mild bitterness but nowhere near enough to balance out the sweetness. Quite empty at the end and slightly over carbonated. Pretty disappointing.

cmacklin (309) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear, light brown with a medium, short lived, off-white head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt and caramel with mildly dry, tart finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not great, but better than I expected.

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bottled, 355ml at The Jericho Tavern, Oxford. Brown with off white head. There is a slightly bitter, boiled maltiness to this, thin on the palate but with an alcohol kick. Moderate.

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

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 10, 2014
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.

commonshawn (449) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2014
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.

AbouAli (102) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2014
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.

Rich brown colour with light white head. Aroma holds notes of caramel. Taste is effervescent and smooth with notes of caramel and nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
