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.

Pours clear brown w/ an amber hue and almost no froth. Aroma of coffee bean, cooked fruit, and malted leather. Light nectar w/ residual effers. Flavors are dry w/ coffee bean, charcoal, leather, brown sugar, and fruity malt. Finish has a slight bittering. I enjoyed it. Not so rich and easy to drink. Don’t worry about the water =)

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 This was the most solid Mexican dark beer i have had cept maybe Casta Morena, but this is a strong contender in my opinion. It could just be because i wasnt expecting it to be good..but there was some nice caramelly chocolate nutty flavors up in this...no lager flavors at all..just a solid, flavorful beer from TJ..I hope this makes its way up here..I had to go down into mexico and find it in a random bar.

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.

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.

Smells a little caramel/chocolate. This is a pretty tasty beer, with some chocolate malts and a little hops. I always seem to prefer viennas to the regular ambers. Pretty good.

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.

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