Caramel-colored body has some brighter orange tints to it and shows a very high clarity and a small, wispy light beige head that shows fairly strong retention.
Sweet malts and just a hint of coffee-like roastiness are fairly strong in the nose, with just a kiss of spicy hops. Very clean with some corn notes that are clearly intended (not DMS or anything).
The flavor is what really shines in this one, however. glassy-smooth malt texture allows the sweet malt to slide through the mouth, richly extracted but tempered by the toasty/roasty dark wheat notes and finishing with some corn-like flavors that are enjoyable (if you like that sort of thing). Spicy, herbaceous hops show very little bitterness but quite more flavor than they let on from the aroma. Very drinkable, and after the first few sips, it seems like it may get too sweet over the course of the glass, but it never really does.
Pours a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, bread, nuts and a light bit of spicy hop aroma. Taste is rich melanoidins from the Munich malts, chocolate, toast, roast, nuttiness and a bit of astringent roast malt on the finish however this is acceptable for the style. Mouth is a nice medium body beer that’s not heavy with a moderate carbonation. Great dunkel that shows richness of the Munich malts and a light bit of nobel hops to compliment it. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014

Poured from tallboy to glass. Dark copper brown hue with thick tan head. Aroma is cereal, malt, slight sulphur, clove. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a nice spicy hop bitterness. Overall this is an enjoyable fall brew. SSSteve (4006) - - MAY 31, 2013

The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall an enjoyable beer with some great flavor. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a very dark amber color with a khaki head. The aroma is super bready with multigrain and a hint of caramel. Maybe there’s some light floral hops in the background. The flavor is very dry and grainy. Pretty complex malt profile. I enjoyed this one a lot. A very good, standard dark lager. troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Tin. Pours very dark brown with long lasting white head. Mexican sugar aroma. Flavour is not sugar sweet, but malty with a bit of sweetness. Some nut, and hop, in the finish Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Had this on draft at the brewery. Some green apple, malty, slight tartness, nice bready finish. This was a surprise to me, very nice. asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can. Mild and bright soapy hop aroma, clean and toasty malt profile. Flavor is rich and creamy with hints of toffee and a bitter herbal afterglow. Overall a great interpretation of the mexican dark lager style.
