UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Light copper beer with a small head. Very caramelic and malty aroma. More malt in mouth accompanied with shy hops. Short bitterness.

The best Mexican I've had so far. This beer is better than most American macro brews, but is not an exceptional beer. Good with Mexican food and other beef dishes, stands up well to salsa. Has a small head with some lacing. It has a good bitter flavor with a good bitter bite and clean aftertaste.

Toronto Festival of Beer 2001 - Unexceptional, but about what I expected. Definitely better than a Corona (not that they are all that similar)

(bottle) Pretty average. Well, probably a bit below average. It is much better than typical macro swill that I was expecting so I enjoyed it actually, but it still ain't all that great.

Not sure why you would drink an amber from Mexico. This is close to an Oktoberfest but it is lacking. Ironically, this is the best of the Mexibrews excluding Negra Modelo.

Nice sweet taste, smooth beer that goes down easy and satisfying. Attractive amber color, with not much head. Tastes good and it is much better than Corona for the price.

My junior prom beer. The only dark beer one could easily purchase then. Tastes pretty good now. Nice caramel notes with enough dryness to make it refreshing.

Like a Negra Modelo, but lighter in body, color, and finishes with a bit more hops. Rated from a keg sample. Medium brown with a bad head. Light caramel body, a gentle smack of hops at the end.

This is a good tasting, smooth beer. Light redish tan color. Good to wash down that burrito.

As far as mexican beers go this one is good. Decent taste, medium body, and smooth draw make the beer a good choice.
