COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Dark beer is unique amongst all others. Its smooth body, light caramel flavor and mahogany color are a result of the special combination of several malts. Because of its sweet aftertaste it is believed to be a delicacy among beers. 4.5% Alc. Vol. Facts: It is a 100% Pure Beer! Brewed only with Barley Malt, Hops, Yeast and Water under the Strictest Guidelines of the International Purity law of 1516. It is a distinguished, elite, gourmet beer for the most demanding palates. It is the only Hand Crafted, Limited Production, Lager beer in Mexico!

Bottle. This is not only the worst Mexican beer I’ve ever had, but the worst ale. I thought it was going to be crisp like Negra Modelo and Dos Equis Amber, but I guess I was wrong. The caramel flavor (perhaps ’dulce de leche’) left a bad aftertaste in my mouth, like drinking diluted molasses. It’s like a half-assed version of Newcastle Brown Ale.

Very pleasantly surprised by this one. Kind of a Negra Modelo clone, which I like very much. Some dark roasted maltiness, nutty and molasses-like, very interesting and refreshing.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 28, 2006
From draft, in a sampler mug. Poured a coke color with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of caramel malts, barley and some very light coffe and chocolate flavors. The palate is plesant with good carbonation, but although the flavor is good, it is barelty noticeable. Although i like darker beers i prefered its lighter sister (Guera).

egajdzis (5550) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Poured an amber color with a large, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, dark grains, and caramel malts. Taste of sweet caramel malts, nuts, toffee malts, and toasted dough. Certainly one of the more solid Mexican beers.

Lunkie (1550) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2006
Malt hop aroma. Clear brown/red ??? colour with poor head and lacing. Bitter malt flavour. Fizzy palate. Not what I was expecting.

5 Mar 06 - Fruit malty aroma. Red-brown colour (not what I’d expect from a Cerveza), low head and lacing. Light fruity malt and roastiness. A sharp malty finish.

Had this on draft at Stone’s 9th party. I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice nutty roasty flavor. Very drinkable

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2005
07.21.05 12oz bottle thanks to DaSilky1. Rootbeer brown under fleeting tan head. Aroma is dark wheat toast, some light coffee, dates and nuts. Very nice to sniff, for sure. Flavor is not as explosive and the nose, but still nice light coffee and hozelnut notes, very nutty all around, milk chocolate and toasted coconut. Creamy soft body with just enough eff to cleanse. Wow, even with the high average, I wasn’t expecting this. Thanks, Todd.

Cachanilla (1) - MEXICO - FEB 25, 2005 does not count
This is one of the best Mexican beers I have tasted. Very good quality ingredients. Also try the other two, Guera and Light. They won’t dissapoint you.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle: poured dark ruby/brown with a small tan head which disappeared quickly. Aroma is lightly malty with a touch of hops. A little fruit in the nose as well. Flavor is mostly malt. Lightly sweet. Lightly roasty. Finish is crisp. A nice beer.
