Nothing quite like all you ccan eat tacos and some Negra Modelo on tap at the local Mexican place. Pours reddish brown (almost like the color of the bottle) with a creamy off white head. The aroma is all malt, but mild. There are notes of coffee and earth, but not much else. On the palate, it’s smooth and surprisingly light, but there isn’t a ton going on besides some sweet doughy notes.

Amber / Brown (dark) color and minimal head. Malty (caramel) aroma and some wood notes. Taste is sweet and long finish. It could have more hops!

Dahlstrom (35) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2015
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Brownish color with a smal white head. Aroma of lager yeast and lightly roasted caramel. Taste is caramel and... I don’t know... artificial? Light bodied. Light bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Brew_Cat (57) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 12, 2015
Free offer @ Beer Corner, Athens. Pours caramel-amber with small fizzy diminishing off-white head. Thin bodied, dry texture. Aromas and tastes of caramel, but not as strong, with bitter aftertaste and some hints of lemon from time to time. Problem is the aftertaste stays longer than I would want it to. Too artificial for my taste.

tekstr1der (173) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Not nearly as bad as expected, this pours brown with thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel and mild spice. Flavor is semisweet, with some malt and slight nastiness of commercial lager. I was pleasantly surprised and would have this again if needed.

bennetporter (445) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown from a bottle. Very nice caramel malt aroma and flavor, good classic beer. Glad to see it holds up from what I remember from years ago.

On tap. Pours deep clear amber, beige head. Aroma of sweet malty caramel. Taste of same. Boring. Mouthfeel is watery with low carb. Ugh.

Typically fizzy Mexican brew, probably inspired by German Schwarzbier at some distant time in the past. Lacks any real taste, mouthfeel unusual, what with all the carbonation. Original bottle, recognizable if bland label.

elosop (220) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
Mörkröd med liten krona. Doftar svagt av karamell. Smaken tunn, någon maltsötma. Eftersmaken kort. Lite kolsyra. Tämligen menlös, hade dock inte förväntat mig annat.

Aroma is sweet malty caramels. Taste is the same and I almost get angry when I think about it. Pretty hard bitterness in the end.
