2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks FEMSA! Take a good name and run it into the ground. Don’t even bother to change the art on the label, even though this is clearly a different beer than Casta Morena. Anyway, after that rant... I was disappointed by this. The predominant aroma and flavor was smoke. The combination of malts was just too sweet for my taste. There was a hint of some interesting hops in there, but it just couldn’t get out. The color was a golden copper, and the head was white and left some nice lacing. It’s really not that bad a beer, but it’s not up to Casta’s prior standards.
Cafe claro brillante, poca espuma, aroma muy suave a cafe tostado, sabor suave le falta lupulo y mas cuerpo, final corto Geiserich (4519) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottled: Suprising pleasant beer. Brown color, off-white head. Light fruity, refreshing malty aroma with hop notes. Flavor is malty, light metalic hop notes, almonds and hints of fruits. Dry, light bitter finish. JuStuka (201) - Edo De Mex, MEXICO - OCT 28, 2009
Pours dark amber color, malt aroma, some sweet flavor, very watery, is almost the same thing as Casta Morena eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2009
a shame that casta has been watered down like this. virtually no aroma at all. some vigorous sniffing comes up with a very faint toastiness and clag. watery, sweet, empty palate with only detectable flavours being caramel and a slice of burnt toast on AM radio with the sound turned right down, like the way old people listen to the radio.

Bottle - 355ml. Nice amber body with a decent off-white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Taste is rather thin and finish is short. Disappointing.

Well,a ctually this is the same beer Casta MOrena used to be, I don’t know how differnt it is from the original, but the facts are FEMSA bought Casta and at first launched Bruna and then this one alone. rcasta (864) - EL SALVADOR - OCT 23, 2008

Una cerveza grande por su nombre. Oscura con un poco de malta dulce, facil y entretenida. Sabor a humo parece que no abunda.

bottle. I was suprised at this one. Maybe it was just the fact that it was considerable step up from the rest of the beer I had that night. light richness and sweetnes. liinis (1770) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008
bottle. Dark red-brown and clear with a beige big foamy head that stays eternally and leaves lace. Reminds me awful lot of the ukrainian beers which quality didn’t quite convince me. Wheatbeer -like strong acidic lemony sourness, but heavier sweet maltyness of dark beer. Very metallic and watery. Quite bad beer, but nice label ! gerardoluna (193) - MEXICO - SEP 11, 2008
Amber deep dark cristal color, poor head, a little malty aroma, the flavor is poor but is fresh and light, no good taste, steel in the finish
