Kita (2147) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear amber color with thin soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, flowers and grass. Tastes of medium sweet caramel and toasted malt with mild grassy sourness and light bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Decent but not outstanding...

A good drinking beer for any occasion. Enjoy it as a stand alone drink or with a meal. It goes down smooth and easy and more flavorful for a typical mas produced American beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Barely there caramel and biscuit scents, taste is a burned out and watered down caramel thing. A slightly lingering salty and bitter after taste is nice

Originally rated on 9/21/08. I thought i would prefer this one over the regular dos XX but this one wasnt very good. Aroma and flavor of old grain. Mouthfeel was a little thin. The body was a dark amber with a thin head that quickly disappated, no lace left on the glass. I probably wont try it again

Dark amber pour with large off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, grains and faint hops. Taste of caramel malts, grains, corn and faint hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced. Low on taste and character but goes down good on a hot day.

Nice amber color with an off-white head. Mild caramel malty nose. Typical caramel malty and light hoppy flavor. Still quite fresh and easy drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2016 De cerveceria Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma-Heineken(MEX) "XX Amber" una Amber Lager de 4.7% ABV, en resumen este estilo es una versión de las Generic Adjunt Lager mas obscura. En apariencia la "XX Amber" tiene una mínima corona de espuma de breve retención, actividad de carbonatación agresiva, color ambarino profundo pero muy cristalino con destellos cobrizos, cuerpo flojo a simple vista. El aroma es a azúcar quemada, maltas de maíz, algo de corteza de pan, nota acida perceptible, en general aromas básicos y de poco carácter. Ya en el paladar predomina un dulzor, sabor a azúcar quemada, en algunas Amber Lager y Darck Lager es comun utilizar azúcares quemados como adjuntos no solo para dar sabor, sino tambien para proporcionar el color característico de la cerveza en vez de usar maltas especiales, esto con la finalidad de abaratar precios, se presiente una acidez que aunque no es muy fuerte si es un referente al ser una cerveza de muy poco sabor, nota sulfurosa o a agua mineral, algo de costra de pan, y un final de nuevo dulce, no es muy de mi agradó y creo es de las peores de la industria macro nacional.
