3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. rather dark pour for the style as it was a very dark amber with s hort lived khaki head. caramelly sweet but not overly so. more of a marzen. definitely better than what I was expecting since its from Tijuana. not bad, not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Bottle, 355ml. Clear mahagony with a small, fluffy light-brown head. Watery roasted aroma, with hints of spices and dry fruits. Rich and smooth, but ultimately lacking in flavour, too watery, shame. Low bitterness, but with a great roasted finish. Maybe this was all there was in 2005, but these guys better start producing to a higher standard, or risk getting run out of the market by better brewers.

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.
