ACHops (1430) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2012
On tap, pours medium amber with thin white head. Slightly sweet aroma. Biscuity, caramel malt taste marked by an almost complete lack of hops. Not totally, but close. Aftertaste is... nothing. Not objectionable, really, just not much there. On the other hand, generally one of your better bets at Mexican places.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber, small white head that disappears quickly, leaving some lacing. Sweet sugary aroma, syrup and caramel. Light-bodied, mild carbonated, sweet and harsh mouthfeel. Malty and sweet bread taste syrup, caramel and sugar.

Kita (1949) - 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

BeerRenter76 (845) - Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
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.
