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... lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2008
pours a clear light brown with a two finger fluffy brown head. aroma is toasted caramel malt with a little hops. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but a touch stronger especially the malt. has just a touch of a dry aftertaste and the malt sticks to the tongue for a bit. not my style but not bad. the aroma does get a little stronger as it warms to match my flavor rating.

On draft at O’Briens. Beautiful bright, burnt sienna color when held to light, small beige head. Toasty-sweet malts, floral and hoppy notes with a bit of earth and wood. Malty with a nice crisp tartness, toasty with bitter herbal notes, nicely balanced with hints of burnt caramel as well. Medium body, getnly tingly carbonation. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 9, 2007

Malty with notes of chocolate and toffee. A little earthy hops too. Light bodied with not a ton of flavor. Just subtle sweetness and a lightly crisp finish. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2007
After its release from the 12 ounce bottle the beer sets quietly in the glass a unclouded brown with touches of ruby at the edges, the head is a frothy light tan and the size customary, as it erodes, the lace forms a fine blanket to cover the glass. Nose has a bit of caramel, sweet malt and the standard lager crispness. Start has a sweet malt presence, with the top light to medium in feel. Finish has a determined acidity; the hops unremarkable, dry and somewhat sweet aftertaste lingers long, overall a passable beer and one that I find refreshing. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2007
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. rather dark pour for the style as it was a very dark amber with s hort lived khaki head. caramelly sweet but not overly so. more of a marzen. definitely better than what I was expecting since its from Tijuana. not bad, not bad at all.

Bottled bought at Holiday wine cellar. Nice dark brown pour,minimal head, Sweet mouthfeel, no real taste of burnt malt...some slight roasted flavor, but more on the caramel side, easy drinking, quality brew, very enjoyable!
