3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pretty dark pour for a "Vienna" -- roasty brown; firm standing head. Nutty edge throughout, woody aroma, and drinks with a malty, caramel edge. Pretty even keeled, cleanly made, quaffable. (#5309, 11/3/2013)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber beer with a dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma has caramel, some alcohol notes and a touch of dried fruits. It’s lightly sweet on the palate, full to medium bodied and quite soft. Caramel, some dried fruits and a little bitterness in the flavor, mostly sweet in the finish. Certainly not interesting this one, but not bad either. 130810

This was really good for a Mexican Lager, since most Mexican beers are really crap. I really don’t know why they are so easy to get in the States, since other countries are far superior in what the produce. That must be NAFTA. Oh well, the American economy is in the toilet anyway. Prosit!
