Bottle at home, thanks Frands. Dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, roasted, nuts). Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter. Light body. OK.

355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Quite a sweetish dark lager. Has suggestions of a British regional brewery keg mild. Caramel notes. Quite drinkable and reasonably pleasant if undemanding. Dark beers tend to have more flavour and be more attractive than light beers, regardless of overall quality. Rather like wholemeal bread and white bread I suppose.

Bottle. Chestnut brown with a thin head. Aromas are light molasses and weetabix with caramel. Flavours are cheap sweet cola with chocolate and wheat. Some medicinal notes. OK.

Damn, I gotta say I like this stuff. This is not the first time I’ve had a dark mexican beer that has been quite tasty. Poured out a dark clear mahogany beer with a good sized thick tan head that has great retention and produces slippery ropy lacing. The aroma is dry and a bit weak with grains and burnt sugar and toasted malts. The taste is along the same lines minus the grains - really malty with a some caramel. The mouthfeel is really good - smooth, good light carbonation and a low powered burnt and bitter finish. I need more. This stuff goes down very good.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2009
It is mahogany with a small, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and the flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel and a little nuts. Actually it is quite OK.
