This neat label (for a Mexican beer) really drew my attention when it first hit my grocery store’s shelf. And the fact that it’s offered in brown bottles is also alluring (for a Mexican beer). It pours a dark amber color with a short-lived white head and light carbonation. Lacing? None to speak of. The aroma is of every other Mexican lager known to man, but with a slight burn caramel character. It smells thin, light, and... well, of an amber lager. It’s light-bodied in the mouth, as a lager of this caliber should be, I suppose, but has a slightly malty mouth feel, decorated well with more of that burnt caramel flavor that was in the aroma. It feels a little weird in the mouth, though, and takes a turn for thew worse (pleasantry-wise, that is) the moment that you swallow. The thin, almost spicy, burnt caramel bitterness quickly evacuates from the mouth, leaving a strange sensation under the tongue. The rest of the experience, as the beer finishes, is mostly a slight caramel bitterness - and that’s it. Overall, it seems a little unbalanced, but still better than your average Mexican bear.

Pours a very pretty amber color. Aroma is primarily sweetness and not much else. The first sip is mostly sweet but that fades into wateryness. As it warmed I got a bit of an apple taste as well. But any flavor that does appear tends to disappear as quickly. Better than Corona but just not much other than water going on.

Ljusbrun öl, vitt bubbligt skum som håller sig länge. Maltsötma, vanilj, citrus i doften. Ljust bröd, smörkola, röda bär och fruktighet i smaken. Lite för tunn för ett högre betyg.

Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours ruddy dark amber with a very transient head. Moderate malty aroma. Little hop noticeable. Med + body. Flavor is malty in a lightly roasty way. Could pass for Oktoberfest. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s moderately bitter. Could do for a session beer.

Clear brown-amber with a slight red tint pour. Aromas of Brown bread and corn husks. Very drinkable malty flavor. One of my favorite Mexican beers. Is now available out side of Northern Mexico.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and caramel with metallic finish. A decent American dark lager.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light brown with a ruby hue. Aroma of caramel and something slightly sour. Maybe a little corn. Taste is light sweet. Corn and cotton candy with a hint of caramel and some green apple. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing to seek out but I’ll enjoy this one. Much better than your typical Mexican pale lagers.

Bottle from buddy at work. I had never heard of this. Not much aroma just malt. Taste was a hair off with high carbonation. Not bad but not good either
