Tastes just like Dos Equis dark. I like it. Not great, not terrible. Good with Mexican food (Obviously) biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Looks like a dark vienna with a some added brown. Floral, malty aroma with some caramel. Rather one dimensional. Hefty ABV for a Mexican beer. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle at Pokez Mexican Restaurant, San Diego. Dark, clear ruby-brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma is a bit stale, but still nice, with malt and cocoa notes. Flavour is mild but pleasant, quite sweet and roasty. Thin body, but otherwise more enjoyable than I expected, and a nice compliment to the excellent vegan chorizo burrito I had for dinner.

Bottle. Poured a dark almost burgandy color with just a little tan head... quickly receding. Aroma was more pronounced than expected... with a solid amount of sweet malts and berries. Flavor was about as expected... much weaker than the aroma. Sweet watery roasted malts and the aforementioned berries were in there. Watery on the palate with very little going on in the finish. Just a tad bit better than expected. gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 Good beer. One of my favorite mexican beers. Dark. Hoppy, but not too bitter. Nothing extradonary but enjoyable.

Bottle: Brown color. Aroma is weak. Appearance is weaker. No head or lacing whatsoever. Taste is a little malty, but watered down. Could be compared to a Michelob Amber Bock or something along those lines. This may be a good crossover beer from the macro pilsners. Just doesn’t quite cut it for me, though. zeru (1) - barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2005 does not count
Very bad dark beer. Too much gas inside. The gas is the only thing noticeable in it. FlacoAlto (4221) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2005
I’ve tried a couple of times and I’ve had the same impression. I even prefer the coronita one.
Pours a brilliantly clear ruby color when held up to the light. It is topped by a frothy, though quickly disappearing tan colored head. The aroma is slightly malty with a hint of caramel in the finish as well as a light herbal character & fruitiness (strawberries) that seem to be mostly hop derived. As expected the aroma is fairly muted & subtle. The beer is lightly sweet with apparent notes of sweet cherry candy, and light caramel. The beer has a light herbal character and a certain light astringent bitterness in the finish. This beer is fairly simple and subtle, but that is pretty characteristic of this style of beer. This beer really has a soft spot for me, and I quite enjoy being able to order this beer at Mexican restaurants, where it is usually the only beer with flavor.

This beer has a good dark color. It has a thicker body with a more full flavor than I expected. The head is larger, and sticks around longer than I expected from a mexican brew. I like the flavor alot. It has malt, hops, and is slightly sweet. TheGreatAddo (14) - West Hills, California, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Best Mexican beer I have tasted. It is smooth and not bitter at all. Good with lime as well.
