Draft at Stone 14th Anniversary. Light amber pour, off-white head. Caramel malt, light floral hops. Very drinkable, Good for Mexican beer. Sdaniel90 (1081) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Bottle, 355ml. Clear mahagony with a small, fluffy light-brown head. Watery roasted aroma, with hints of spices and dry fruits. Rich and smooth, but ultimately lacking in flavour, too watery, shame. Low bitterness, but with a great roasted finish. Maybe this was all there was in 2005, but these guys better start producing to a higher standard, or risk getting run out of the market by better brewers.

Nice beer this, but a little watery, very aromatic, but although a little smoky it was perhaps incipit. I expected a little more. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2009
12oz bottle 4/2/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a dark brown with a small covering for a head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste of the same with a bit of hops and caramel thrown in. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty and better than I expected. naivepegasus (387) - USA - JAN 3, 2009
Pours a dark ruby with a creamy, light beige head. Strong roasted malt notes in the odor. The taste starts off of light caramel and ends with a slight burnt toast aftertaste. An interesting beer, definitely better than I expected.

08-Sep-08 (12 oz bottle: Purchased 08-Aug-07 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) I’ve let this one sit a bit longer than I planned, but with great results. This beer is wonderfully malty, very toasty, and mildly earthy, but the roastiness exhibits a slightly burnt character. Of particular note is the fact that the finishes with a flurry of corn flavors, but the roastiness helps to mask it. There is some perceived sweetness because the beer is so malt-focused and throws hints of brown sugar at you, but it’s actually rather dry on the palate. Medium bodied with light-medium carbonation. Aside from the obvious malty character of the nose, the beer smells like roasted pecans and fairly dark toast, but note of corn and dough lurk in the background. The clear, medium-brown body is capped by a small, tan head that settles to a thin ring. A touch too much corn in the flavor and the roastiness is a bit charred, but otherwise, this is an enjoyable beer and obviously one of the better beers made in Mexico. 184601 (206) - Mexicali, MEXICO - JUN 28, 2008

12 oz bottle that came in a multi pack. Pours dark from with white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and some nuts. Flavor is caramel, malt, honey and a little nuts. Smooth mouthfeel with nice carbanation. Belt Mexican beer I have had. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Found this bottled in an import multi-pack at World Market in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, dark brown pour with a nice, thick tan head, mild chocolate and nuts in the nose, smoky, chocolatey coffee taste with a caramel, malty finish. Probably the best Mexican beer I’ve ever had. gerardoluna (193) - MEXICO - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Good aroma of caramel, the head is medium, cream light color. The liquid color its good, darkness like a viena dark style, the flavor its easy to drink, i expected moore taste in my tonge, but in general its a good one, tnx to the Consorcio Cervecero for rescue the way to make a good beers over this countries where the flatness beer are in all places...
