a nice dark or dark amber beer. Mexicos best by a longshot. very crisp , with noticable "zing" from the hops. Clean after taste.

A Mexican beer alike no others. Maybe thats why its more popular elsewhere than it is in Mexico? As a darker beer, this one is like Guiness-lite - it has the chocolate and earthy overtones, but isnt as heavy. I definitely recommend this one when a Mexican beer is called for.

Wow! A Mexican beer that is good...imagine that! With a dark, malt caramel flavor that doesnt need the lime, which is often gratuitously provided. Reminds me of a very light Guinness. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Well there isnt anything offensive about this one and its a mexican brew that doesnt need a lime to add flavor but its not one Id spend drink often. Some malty flavor and a tad bit of roasty flavor to boot.

By far my favorite Mexican beer. Goes especially nice with a big platter of carne asada and refried beans. Good caramelly and malty flavors, somewhat crisp dry hop finish. Not something Id pick up if I werent in a mexican mood though.

Overall a surprise from the brewers of that swill CARONA. Why this is not their most popular beer is proof that if you advertise people will drink $h*T and pay a lot for it. I could do without the lime though, save it for a diet coke. Very good and a neat bottle.

Ill have to rerate this when I get it in a glass, but I had it from a bottle in a restaurant and it tasted pretty good. Good medium body, nice roasted malty/slightly sweet flavour, and it goes damn well with spicy catfish tacos.

My favorite of the mexican beers. Nice dark color. A little watered down for this style, but that is part of its appeal when mixed with Mexican cuisine.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark lager like beer. Nice light malt aroma of slight hops. Taste is really all on its own. I have this every time I have Mexican food. I really like this beer as it is decently bodied and really has a great flavor. Not like most of the Mexican beers Ive had. Good stuff.
