Reddish mahogany with tiny head. Smells like figs, dates and caramel. Very sweet malts but well balanced with some hops. Medium-full bodied. Some alcohol on the back, definitely warming. Sweet finish with a mild bitter fade. Best Mexican. Not a lot to compete with, but the best undoubtedly.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2009
750mL bottle at DLD. Poured deep amber with a well-retained cap of tan head. The aroma was warm and very sweet with caramel and souring fruits leading the way. The flavor was sugary and warm with caramel and toffee at the core.. touches of brown sugar graced the edges, along with earthy bitterness and mild oxidation.. solid! Medium-bodied and rather grainy on the palate with low carbonation.. OK feel and flow.

holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle sampled at DLD. Poured a brown red with a tan head. Fruity nose, red fruit, sweet malts and fruity hops. Cherries and red fruit flavors, lots of caramel malt with a light bitterness. Decent beer, especially for coming from across the border.

j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. I think I was told "this is the best beer from Mexico"... and I’d have to agree. It was rather tasty. Phenomenal? No, but solid. Pours a clear still brown with no head. Light isopropyl notes on the nose, but nothing huge. Light caramel follows it up. Medium bodied with nice plum and more caramel and dark fruit. Finishes with a light bitterness. Surprisingly tasty.
