This is the Mexico City brewpubs flavorful rendition of a style that is in no way foreign to the local beer consumers palate.

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.

Lubiere (13525) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Nekronos. A nice reddish amber lager with a thick big bubbled light moka head, lacing. Light caramel aroma, bready. In mouth, a light caramel malt, light roasted notes, very light bodied, with some reisdual nutty notes. Muchas gracias Raul.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - FEB 18, 2008
Had it at the Santa Fe shopping mall in Mexico city. I felt a very artificial taste in this, watered down with a caramel and smokey taste. Its better than other Mexican Viennas but maybe i dont like the style too much. I dont know why there are so many viennas in Mexico.

Amber color, aroma and taste are moderately sweet, caramel, bready, not bad.

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.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Underhopped or very sweet, it doesnt matter. Dust covers this brews 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.

Tropic (2) - SPAIN - JUN 6, 2012 does not count
Amber colour. No head nor retention (poor service?) Sweet malt flavor and aroma, vienna malt. Hop presence just for bitterness, slightly and subtle dry finish, very nice.
