Found this bottled in an import multi-pack at World Market in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, dark brown pour with a nice, thick tan head, mild chocolate and nuts in the nose, smoky, chocolatey coffee taste with a caramel, malty finish. Probably the best Mexican beer I’ve ever had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a clear light brown with a two finger fluffy brown head. aroma is toasted caramel malt with a little hops. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but a touch stronger especially the malt. has just a touch of a dry aftertaste and the malt sticks to the tongue for a bit. not my style but not bad. the aroma does get a little stronger as it warms to match my flavor rating.

After its release from the 12 ounce bottle the beer sets quietly in the glass a unclouded brown with touches of ruby at the edges, the head is a frothy light tan and the size customary, as it erodes, the lace forms a fine blanket to cover the glass. Nose has a bit of caramel, sweet malt and the standard lager crispness. Start has a sweet malt presence, with the top light to medium in feel. Finish has a determined acidity; the hops unremarkable, dry and somewhat sweet aftertaste lingers long, overall a passable beer and one that I find refreshing.
