Water with color and almost no flavor. Just a run of the mill cerveza.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours red orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles and lightly laces.

S: Bready malt, maybe a hint of floral notes, and a little sweetness.

T: Bready malt, some sweetness, very light fruity notes, and that's pretty much about it. Can be a bit watery on the back end.

M: Fairly light body, moderate carbonation.

O: Generally inoffensive, but I can't say I plan on drinking this again. Just nothing special about it.

Very thin, basically a Vienna/Dark lager, very light malts, drinkable but just far too thin in body.

Harsh after taste.. Enjoyed this beer for many years... Than I got into craft.. No longer what I'm looking for

Disappointing in almost every way. This is not a bad beer, but it's not nearly good enough to justify the price. I'd rather drink Miller Lite.

Decent Mexican amber lager. It is labeled as a Vienna style lager, but it seems like a premium adjunct lager, IMO. However, it is refreshing alongside Ensenada style fish tacos.

(Draft, revisited) at Canyon Club in Agoura Hills. Wheaty and plain but refreshing; 3/8/15.

Lite gold pour with white head. Bready notes and flavor. Lite mouthfeel. A crisp and refreshing lager.

Best when really icy cold, very drinkable with spicy food, chili relanno's...this beer brings down the heat, clean finish, good with lime wedge, this beer is much better in draft form than in a bottle every time I have drank it

Aroma has a bit of nutiness, flavor is very malt forward but tastes a bit stale and has cardboard flavor. Hints of nuts make it tolerable.

One of my favorite mexican beers that I can get right at the local mini market. If I can´t find Bohemia I get some Amber Lagers.

It is okay on draft with a lime. Much better than Corona in my opinion.
