Highly carbonated and very watery. Has a small sting at the end, fairly simple and unextroadinary. darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2005
Pours with almost no head. Calls itself a ’dark beer’ but I would describe it as an amber. Fairly high carbonation, and medium malty aroma. Taste is smooth without any hop bitterness on the tongue. Just slightly in back of throat. An easily drinkable beer. Probably the best ’big’ Mexican brew, though still very bland. UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Yeah, the first .0004 seconds of this beer in my mouth had some sort of taste. Kind of reminded me of used bath water with lumps of shredded wheat. Finish is ok. Nose nonexistent. I have spoiled myself with real good black lagers of late and this probably has brought the score down some. Lastly, I have a piece of gold aluminum foil stuck in my throat, but I’m not sure I can blame the beer for that one. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Bottle. Dark amber-red with a medium white head. Looks good so far. Light aroma, just a little grass and citrus. Simple malty flavor, sorta sweet. Short hint of grassy bitterness on the finish. Watery body, but as expected for a mexican beer. Especially good with spicy salsa and salty chips. JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2005
Intense black colour makes you think this beer’s going to pack a punch, and it does – but I’d call this a low-blow. Very little on the nose save the occasional whiff of malt. And the taste is absolutely horrible – there’s an unappetizing sharpness to it that feels like turpentine. Slightly less offensive in a glass vs. bottle, but that’s not saying much.

An interesting beer. Some nice darker roasted flavour, but not overpowering. What I would expect a Mexican dark beer to taste like! It is great if you want something more with your mexican food than just the watery pale alternatives. Great bottle shape. squail (8) - USA - MAR 21, 2005 does not count
this is a very nice beer. sweet with a gentle burnt finish. good change of pace and not too hard to find. georgekillian (344) - Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2005
very good dark beer. one of the best mexican beers there is out there. a different taste than what i’m used to but still a good beer. i had this my freshman year and was pretty impressed KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Not bad for a Mexican beer masquerading itself as a Vienna munich beer. Slight maltiness coupled with week hops. Cheap to buy. iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
Given the choice between this and the usual Mexican beer this one wins hands down. Typical Mexican taste but more flavour than the big "C" with a decent caramel maltiness.
