pours a well-carbonated pint, with a big, short-lived head. beer has lightly malty aroma, with some typical sulfer notes from the lager yeast. beer drinks very light and finishes dry. a great food beer, and a good one to drink on a hot day-it’s got just enough going on to be interesting, without taking too much of your attention.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big bubbly, white head which last for a little while. No carbonation. Aroma is sort of strange. Malts and some kind of strange vegetable. Color is a medium brown. Flavor is thin and watery with some malts, a bit of corn and maybe a bit of dry biscuit. Finish is dry and pasty with a very slight bit of biterness. I guess this is a pretty good beer when compared to other mexican beers.

Pours a nice brown color with a small tan head. A bit of hoppiness in the flavor. A nice mexican brew.

I found this to be refreshing. Crisp and clean tasting. Uncomplicated. Nice lightly roasted malt flavors. Hops are noticable, and seem playful on the tounge. Highly drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This is like a Mexican Amber Bock, but it is a bit less fake tasting.

Bottle - darkish-reddish amber in color with an off-white head. Fairly malty with a hint of hops. Good for a Mexican beer.

Looks like an acceptable dark amber beer. Actually can taste some dark malt, some bitterness, and some floral hops. Even a hint of chocolate! Least bad or most intersting of the Mexican beers I have had.

Certainly among the best Mexican beers around, albeit no way near Casta Morena. Sweet and malty with hints of chocolate. Lightly bitter. Disappointing mouthfeel considering the style and ABV - probably due to the use of rice.
