Got this at Krogers on Broadway. Copper. White, medium head. Aroma: Light Caramel malt. Flavor: Started good, then this bitter, metalic flavor dominated to the finish. Sorry Mexico but you don’t even do as well as the USA in this style, much less the Germans. There are other dark beers from Mexico that are decent but not this one.

12floz bottle no freshness date, paid $1.50 for a single, poured it into a pint glass. Light amber in color and nose consists of a mild honey nut cheerio-like aroma. Body is light and slick with a buttered white bread flavor. Not bad, although it is a weak representation for the style it falls under.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body.......nose is mild malts, with cracker, bread, mild toffee/caramel, minimal hops, balance to the malts......taste is mild malts, with light cereal, light cracker, hint of toasted malt, dry throughout, finishing with light bitterness....mouth feel, light watery body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The malts are too light in both aroma and flavor for the style. The malt bill needs a huge re-work and also the hops need further consideration. BJCP 5/3/8/4/5

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with faint grassy and citric hops. What flavor was sweetish and grainy with fruity and citric hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Bland

12-oz at Casa Guererro in Mill Creek. Killer food, don’t really care about the beer. Neither do they, really--served with a thick wedge of lime in a frosted shaker pint. Whatever. Pours a clear medium amber with a loose and sudsy whitish head that goes away eventually. Mild sweet caramel nose, some corn there. Plenty of lime, too, of course, but that doesn’t count. Watery light body, flabby carb. Light caramel and corn mid palate. Finish stays on the right side of tangy, thankfully. But only just.

B. Pours a clear amber color with white head. Have to disagree with the company’s description of "strong flavor".

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber color. About one finger cream color head. I missed out a little. I let it freeze and has some frozen stuff when I poured it. After the thaw, it’s still quite pretty.
Aroma is basic. Watery, bready, light hops. Light lemon. It’s primarily water. Eh. Bland.<p.Taste is watery. It is a little bready. Light lemon. It has a pretty good hop bite, though it’s not bitter.
Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Crisp. Pretty dry.
Overall, it’s okay. If you haven’t had it, you’re not missing a lot. It has the standard Mexican beer taste, though it’s light. It’s okay. I’d probably not recommend it, and I’m undecided if I would buy it again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from the new mega brewery just across the border in Nava, Mexico. This is the Modelo brewery owned by AB InBev. Victoria pours a clear amber with an off-white head. The aroma is quite clean. The flavor is light for a Vienna style Märzen, but smooth and highly drinkable. I like this much better than the brewery´s other products like Corona, Modelo and Pacifico and a lot better than typical American interpretations of this style like Coors Killian´s Irish Red. Pretty nice session beer from the biggest brewery plant in the world with an annual output of 27.5 million hectoliters (23.4 million barrels).
