Brown bodied, small grey head. Chestnut, metallic, light roasted but very simple and clean. Bubbly active carbonation, simplistic malt taste, very light and without any character. Only marginally better than a standard mass produced lager. (Can from Walmart Cancun) MarkSachon (1010) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2013
12 oz can in Mexico. Pretty typical of the Mexican beers being light and lacking the body one would expect in a negra. Still, not too bad for a hot afternoon on the beach. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
355 mL can from Mexico. Lovely amber, but there is almost no head. Nor aroma. Nor flavour, for that matter, although there is more than in the Mexican pale lagers. Drier than some. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
355ml can. Served with lime, didn't need it, didn't put it in. Looked like Coca-Cola. Mild aroma and taste, medium caramel. Decent body. Reminded me of a lighter Sam's Boston Lager. If you like dark lagers or get tired of cervesa style beers in Mexico check it out.

Appearance: Clear amber color with an off white head.
Aroma: Caramel malty with some fruity notes.
Palate: Medium light body. Slightly sweet and a light bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Slightly sweet caramel malty with some fresh fruity notes in the background.
Overall impression: Slightly better than expected. And this bottle says it is 4,5%. Not 6% as it says here.
Personal stats: Bottle from a workmate.
From a 355 ml bottle served at Joe’s Pub in Puerto Aventuras Mexico. Pours a clear deep amber with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma and flavor. Not terribly flavorful but goes well with the local Aztec soup. mzaar (3380) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2013
Mörkbrun öl med stort skum. Smörkola och citrus i aromen, men hade önskat i betydligt högre utsträckning. Bättre då med smaken, som inte alls är oäven. Smörkolan är även här framträdande, också hittas röda bär samt knäck. Fin maltsötma. jrodooo5 (1637) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Surprisingly clean and crisp. This beer is quite drinkable. The pour is a clear copper with a thin white head that quickly fades. The aroma is of slightly sweets malts. The taste while unremarkable is well balanced and medium bodied unlike most Mexican beers. Not bad at all! patxa (207) - MEXICO - DEC 27, 2012
I would not choose to rate a mainstream beer like this if people would not be so unFair with it, so here I am. To begin with, lets consider to major facts. This beer was conceived for a country where wheater conditions are predominantly hot all year around, and where its people have therefore develop a palate for refreshing beverages. That being said, and knowing the processes and recipes behind this beer, I have to say that this is by far the best mainstream beer available in Mexico. I mean, for that price and considering the circunstamces, it is a ver decent Munich style beer, with bock notes and a dark colour. The bitterness is adequate and gets a not so bad balance of light caramel notes. Carbonation is high but again the beer is marketed in a place where thirst matters more than taste. I wont go as far as saying that this beer is good for high standars, of course, but to declare that this is "not at all a good beer" is just snob. There is beer for every situation, palate and place, and a lot of thinsg to be consider far beyond taste or purity. So when thinking about this beer, compare it with beers of its like and avoid shallow comparisons with Mikeller or Abbey beers. burg326 (5479) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Drank straight out of the 12 ounce bottle on my honeymoon, aromas of grass, light toast, and some raisins. Flavors follow suit, nothing too special about this beer, but still enjoyable on the beach in Mexico.
