2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was a $4 bottle special at "Chicago Boss" a dive bar in Near North surrounded by overpriced restaurants with "fusion" in all their menus. So why not. Has a nice beer smell right under the cap, although once I poured it into a glass, a little bit of skunk came out. I thought the color was little more ruddy than your average Mexican lager, but I see from the style that it’s actually a bit light for a Mexican-made Vienna. Taste is malty, with a dry finish, minus the occasional graininess of a dark Mexican beer. I get a hint of corn that stays around in the aftertaste, but it did not distract from the basic beeriness, as it does not add much sweetness. A good Mexican lager to discover on a hot day of walking around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 11.2oz ($2): Pours light amber with whitish head. Aroma is a hint of caramel malt with a sort of undifferentiated macro lager aroma. Taste reminds me of Yuengling more than it does of something like Negra Modelo. Somewhat sweet. Lagery. Not too bad.
