UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 I drink this from time to time when Im at a Mexican joint. Its malty so goes well with spicy hearty foods and while a little thin it still drinks well.

One of my favorite of the Mexican beers. Actually prefer it to Dos Equis. I like the slightly sweet character with spicy Mexican food. Very smooth and drinkable if not a bit weak.

Definitely not a Mexican beer to be passed up. Try this one before you grab that Corona next time! :) Nice thick mouthfeel, with little head, good balance of malt and hops however the hops comes out on top for flavor. With the addition of a lime wedge it brightens up the darker flavors of this beer. Very nice, recommended.

Initially I was a bit afraid of a dark beer from Mexico but was pleasantly surprised. A nice dark beer that has a nice medium malt flavor - doesnt really have that much sweetness to it at all. One of the best products from Grupo Modelo.

This has got to be my favorite easy to get beer when eating Mexican. Slight but pleasant malty aroma. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Flavor is a good match for spicy foods. The mouth feel could be thicker, but overall a good beer.

Pours a dark rootbeer Colour with a rootbeerish head. It looks very attractive in the glass. Almost no Aroma and if anything a little bit of Malts. Nice buttery sweet malty mouthfeel with a medium bodied texture. This beer if very drinkable . There exist a decent sweet after taste with not too many hops to finish bitter. Instead there is some nuttiness to the finish. Some lacing exists. Not a bad brew to be sure. I will be having this again soon.

Dark golden brown color, light sweet caramel aroma and taste, light body, light weak finish. Better than corona.

A little nutty with a slightly buttery aftertaste. Good on a hot summer day.

(on bottle)Actually a beer Ill thinking of keeping in my bar. Mild and round, its a good crossover for people whos afraid of anything else put macro-pilsners. Bad aroma though, like socks forgot in the locker for a day, but the mouth and finish is nice and full
