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.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2006
This poured a dark orange/brown with a beige head that didn’t last too long. Nice aroma of caramel and slightly burnt toast. That burnt toast picks up perhaps a notch too much in the flavor, but this remains an enjoyable, sessionable Vienna.

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.

Malty with notes of chocolate and toffee. A little earthy hops too. Light bodied with not a ton of flavor. Just subtle sweetness and a lightly crisp finish.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Good aroma of caramel, the head is medium, cream light color. The liquid color its good, darkness like a viena dark style, the flavor its easy to drink, i expected moore taste in my tonge, but in general its a good one, tnx to the Consorcio Cervecero for rescue the way to make a good beers over this countries where the flatness beer are in all places...

08-Sep-08 (12 oz bottle: Purchased 08-Aug-07 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) I’ve let this one sit a bit longer than I planned, but with great results. This beer is wonderfully malty, very toasty, and mildly earthy, but the roastiness exhibits a slightly burnt character. Of particular note is the fact that the finishes with a flurry of corn flavors, but the roastiness helps to mask it. There is some perceived sweetness because the beer is so malt-focused and throws hints of brown sugar at you, but it’s actually rather dry on the palate. Medium bodied with light-medium carbonation. Aside from the obvious malty character of the nose, the beer smells like roasted pecans and fairly dark toast, but note of corn and dough lurk in the background. The clear, medium-brown body is capped by a small, tan head that settles to a thin ring. A touch too much corn in the flavor and the roastiness is a bit charred, but otherwise, this is an enjoyable beer and obviously one of the better beers made in Mexico.

Nice beer this, but a little watery, very aromatic, but although a little smoky it was perhaps incipit. I expected a little more.

Weak aroma with notes of yeast and caramel, light bodied and refreshing, high carbonatation, the flavor has notes of caramel and roasted malts, slightly bitter dry finish. slightly above macro
