Pours a dark ruby with a creamy, light beige head. Strong roasted malt notes in the odor. The taste starts off of light caramel and ends with a slight burnt toast aftertaste. An interesting beer, definitely better than I expected.

08-Sep-08 (12 oz bottle: Purchased 08-Aug-07 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) I’ve let this one sit a bit longer than I planned, but with great results. This beer is wonderfully malty, very toasty, and mildly earthy, but the roastiness exhibits a slightly burnt character. Of particular note is the fact that the finishes with a flurry of corn flavors, but the roastiness helps to mask it. There is some perceived sweetness because the beer is so malt-focused and throws hints of brown sugar at you, but it’s actually rather dry on the palate. Medium bodied with light-medium carbonation. Aside from the obvious malty character of the nose, the beer smells like roasted pecans and fairly dark toast, but note of corn and dough lurk in the background. The clear, medium-brown body is capped by a small, tan head that settles to a thin ring. A touch too much corn in the flavor and the roastiness is a bit charred, but otherwise, this is an enjoyable beer and obviously one of the better beers made in Mexico.

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.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Good aroma of caramel, the head is medium, cream light color. The liquid color its good, darkness like a viena dark style, the flavor its easy to drink, i expected moore taste in my tonge, but in general its a good one, tnx to the Consorcio Cervecero for rescue the way to make a good beers over this countries where the flatness beer are in all places...

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.
