Very pleasantly surprised by this one. Kind of a Negra Modelo clone, which I like very much. Some dark roasted maltiness, nutty and molasses-like, very interesting and refreshing. MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours with spare white head on a dark mahogany body. Aroma is of caramel malt, dark roast, toast. Flavor comes in lightly sweet and stock full of tons of toasty, roasty, malty goodness. Almost so damn burnt and toasty it’s overwhelming. Laced with little bits of coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The finish is fairly dry while being crisp and clean both. Light in body and feels a touch flat. Nothing is in this beer that I don’t like, very good overall. naivepegasus (388) - 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. clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Picked this up not having seen "craft" beer from Mexico before. It’s a traditional Mexican Vienna. (which should probably be its own distinct style)
Nose is malty, flavor profile is sweet and malty, with caramel and even some very subtle dark fruit hints. A bit one-dimensional, but very drinkable. Welcome to craft brewing, Mexico! alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 28, 2006
From draft, in a sampler mug. Poured a coke color with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of caramel malts, barley and some very light coffe and chocolate flavors. The palate is plesant with good carbonation, but although the flavor is good, it is barelty noticeable. Although i like darker beers i prefered its lighter sister (Guera).

12oz bottle. Brown pour with some head. Roasty aromas. Flavors were better with more roastiness and some dark fruit flavors. Better than I was expecting. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 9, 2007
12 oz bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Deep amber-brown pour with a small short lived light brown head. Aroma is sweet caramelized malt. Flavor is lightly sweet and nutty followed by a light acidic bite and a lingering semi-dry finish. Light-medium bodiied with lively carbonation. Negra Modelo like.

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. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - 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. Headbanger (4009) - 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.
