bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is dark amber, the liquid is clear. The quite large white foam dissolves quite quickly into a thin lid. The smell is gentle and fruity with a hint of malt and some fresh hops. There is a small amount of diacetyl. The carbonation is mild and pleasant. The taste is quite mild, with a dry and somewhat burned flavour. There is a hint of diacetyl and a small but noticeable bitterness. The aftertaste is a little bitterer, with a small touch of sweet liquorice. This is very mild beer, almost watery, but with a nice "dark" touch.

Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Cream of the crop as far as any ale/lager brewed in Mexico is concerned. Yet, falls short overall when compared to ales brewed from other regions. Not the typical "Corona-like" taste. This dark ale actually has . . .subtle notes of chocolate-like flavor and a dry/smooth aftertaste. Don’t mistake Modelo Especial for this ale, as it is far superior to its cousin.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2004
12oz bottle-pours a deep amber hue with minimal tan head. faint malty aroma and medium carbonation. flavors are toasty, somewhat buttery but not very good. I will pass.

Enjoyed it much more out of bottle rather than draft. Some caramel, hops, rather good with Mexican food.

smackie (54) - St. Augustine, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2005 In a mexican restaurant, this is my choice. I bought some on sale. Not as good, even if it was less expensive.

omhper (24369) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2004
Bottled. Brown colour from the artificial colouring, near no head. Watery and vaguely roasty. Almost no flavour to talk about.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Bottle. Little more malt and hops than Corona, otherwise, similar problems--Watery flavor, weak aroma, little hops.

Bottle. Decent head, amber in color. Seemingly better than the Dos Equis. Body is medium. Generally malty, some hops in the mix.
