My Bottom Line:JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Underhopped or very sweet, it doesn’t matter. Dust covers this brew’s toasted cereals and the creamy sugars get unpalatable quickly.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam stays atop the dark amber.
-The hefty body reduces drinkability considerably.
-Fruity caramel flavors reach dominance soon enough.
-Yet another Mexican artisanal brew that over-the-top sugary...
On tap at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City.
Rich amber pour. White head. The aroma is softly sweet and malty. Fairly clean with a nice light vienna flavour. Lightly hopped, but clean. Pretty fresh and tasty actually. Light toasted malt with a little bit of sweetness on the finish. Well attenuated.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a hazy amber-brown with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma was unexpected, there was the expected caramel malt but it had a pleasant smokiness to it. Flavour’s quite malty with some burnt or smoky notes and herbal hops -- a little watery. Light to medium bodied. Pretty good, an interesting take on the style and one of the best Mexican beers I’ve tried. HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Bottle (325ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, GregClow’s bottle via Nekronos. Deepish copper with a small off-white foamy head. Dry roasty leafy aroma, quite grainy, not much sweetness, herbal, dry hops. Taste is sweeter, a little syrupy, not bad, a little bland. Average body, lightly carbonated, sticky. Ehhh, nicely made, but not memorable. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 That beer is endeed an Ale, I don’t know how Vienna is it, but it is not definitelly my type. Although the taste is not bad. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - my bottle via a trade with Nekronos. Clear dark amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, malt and a faint smokiness. Body is a bit thin, but OK for the style. Flavour is very clean and fresh, with light malt, some burnt sugar, and interesting herbal notes in the finish. Not exciting, but very well made. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Greg. Interesting burnt caramel aroma - root beer like. Copper no head. Decent taste: very woody/roasty malt, long nutty linger. Thin but not too watery. Best of the 3 Mexican Viennas we started the tasting with, but still not something I would reach for.
