Had a few bottles of this after work. Very subtle nose is mostly doughy yeast and toasted malt. Pours a clear medium copper. Average fluffy off-white head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Mild flavor is very bland and shallow. The finish is weak. No acidity. Light to medium creamy body is lively and feels lightly astringent at the finish. A small step above most American Standard Lagers. Not what I would call Vienna as the label would have one think. I could buy a sixer of Miller High Life and save $3 instead.

Light brown/dark red in color. Malty aroma with a touch of hops and alcohol present. Fruity somewhat malty body that finishes lightly hoppy and dry.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2003 Although this Vienna style lager has a lovely deep amber hue, it is pretty flavorless. However, it's well-balanced and refreshing. The aroma is pleasant and yeasty. Goes well with spicy food... I guess that's its purpose. Don't buy this beer unless you are at a Mexican restaurant. In my opinion, that advice is pretty much true for any Vienna style brew. They all go very well with certain foods, especially beef jerky, but don't stand well on their own. My opinion. Take it for what it's worth.

Overall, I like this beer and think it is a good value for the money ($4.99 at the local liquor store for a 6 pack). It does tend to give me an upset stomach after more than a couple though. I am definitely not ashamed to drink this beer.

Brewed in the Vienna syle this is far superior to the average Mexican beer.A pleasant refreshing taste with a delicate caramel aftertaste. A well balanced drink with a pleasant mahogany appearance.Recommended.

I didn’t really enjoy this at all. Boring. The taste isn’t very good and the aroma is awful. Not for me.

A lovely color and a light finish. A good bet at any Mexican restaurant if they don’t carry Negra Modelo.

Decent, middle of the road beer, a bit better than the average American standard as it has a good, slightly roasted maltiness to it.
