3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with spare white head on a dark mahogany body. Aroma is of caramel malt, dark roast, toast. Flavor comes in lightly sweet and stock full of tons of toasty, roasty, malty goodness. Almost so damn burnt and toasty it’s overwhelming. Laced with little bits of coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The finish is fairly dry while being crisp and clean both. Light in body and feels a touch flat. Nothing is in this beer that I don’t like, very good overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark red/brown hue with a small head. The nose smells delicious: malt, roasty, nutty, chocolate, and sweetness. Very smooth and round on the palate. Roasted flavors abound, and a tiny hop bitterness that didn’t show up in the nose peeks its way into the mix. Unlike their guera I had earlier this week, the bottled morena holds up to the quality and freshness I tasted at the brewery on tap. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended.

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.

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).

Picked this up not having seen "craft" beer from Mexico before. It’s a traditional Mexican Vienna. (which should probably be its own distinct style)
Nose is malty, flavor profile is sweet and malty, with caramel and even some very subtle dark fruit hints. A bit one-dimensional, but very drinkable. Welcome to craft brewing, Mexico!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
De cerveceria Tijuana esta esta Morena una cerveza oscura de cuerpo medio-bajo, una delgada corona de espuma que va desapareciendo de poco en poco, perlas compactas y poca actividad de carbonatación, suave, color caoba y su sabor ligeramente a maltas caramelizadas, algún tono a chocolate con sabor tostado y una nota bastante agria que se va quedando en el final de la lengua que es poco agradable. Sus olores enfatizan el sabor dulce que es lo que mas sobresale dejando atrás los lúpulos nobles, con un ABV de 4.8%. Recientemente esta micro cervecera fue adquirida por grupo modelo.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
