Courtesy fordest. Poured a darkish amber color with a thin film of whitish head. Clean aroma with some nuttiness. Mild flavor with nutty tones and a dry finish. Drinkable offering on a pretty bland style.

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.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 9, 2007
12 oz bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Deep amber-brown pour with a small short lived light brown head. Aroma is sweet caramelized malt. Flavor is lightly sweet and nutty followed by a light acidic bite and a lingering semi-dry finish. Light-medium bodiied with lively carbonation. Negra Modelo like.

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.

Sdaniel90 (867) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 12, 2010
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.
