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.

I had it with nachos at a bar in New England. It was probably about as authentically Mexican as that bar, but it still did the trick. Better malt flavor than most lagers, and it didn’t really have too much of the skunk / sulfur flavor that sinks a lot of the macros.

Bbq beer. Does the job. A little bit more malt kick than most macro stuff. A bit skunk.

Not much on the aroma beyond a hint of caramel. Head disappears before the glass arrives at the restaurant table. Mildly sweet with a good little hop bite. Great with pork tacos.

Cerveza lager obscura de buen sabor sin nada extraordinario, se siente un amargor algo de caramelo pan tostado

Bottle on American Airlines flight. Light taste, smooth, but very plain. I wouldn’t bother with this again.

12-ounce bottles. Not a bad choice for having Mexican, although I would be more likely to order the more flavorful Negra Modelo instead.

Bottle @ a Mexican restaurant Clean pale amber looking thing. Not a great deal to offer on the nose - light malt toastiness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, relatively clean. Bit more character than your average lager - touch of caramel malt is enjoyable but short lived, mild bitterness. It’s ok.
