tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2010
bottle. Pours clear dark ruby with off white head. Nothing going on with the aroma, some slight sweet malt, although this beer is really meant to be drank straight out of the bottle anyway. Pretty crisp and refreshing, maybe slight dark fruit presence, but no stand out or dominating flavors. Still, no bad flavors, and overall this is one of the better mexican cantina beers, good for going out and getting food, a step above most other mexicans. Outside of that context I would rarely drink this beer.

Had this one with a lime on a plane. Refreshing with the lime, pretty basic otherwise.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 My new favorite Mexican beer. Really refreshing, rich, malty and smooth beer.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 12oz bottle. Really good Vienna style lager for the price point. $27.00 for 24 bottles. Nice color and good malt taste. This will be a staple in my beer fridge for now on.

Draft at Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, Dos Equis tent. Clear amber color off white head. Aroma of cereal and caramel. Taste is sweet medicinal caramel.

On bottle.

Pours red-brown with white foam, nice carbonation. Notes of caramel, a little watery, easy to drink.

Smooth, has a nice, light bready taste, pairs well with pub grub, or solo. Not a meal in a bottle, but a nice complementary beer.

bottle. Poured deep amber with a thin creamy beige head. Sweet malty aroma, brown sugar note. Light-medium body, crisp carbonation, lingering tart finish. Medium roasted malt flavour, caramel notes, slightly metallic, a bit peppery.

This is my second favorite amber ale. I always have either this or Michelob Amberbock in the fridge.
