Not a terrible beer, just kinds seemed flat and unimpressive. Better than dos Equis especial, but that's not in any way praise.

I had no clue this was considered a Vienna until I came to this site. This is by far my favorite "Vienna", but then again I don't have a whole lot of exposure to the category as the only others I've had were Samuel Adams and Abita Amber. If Samuel Adams and Abita Amber are classic interpretations of the style then the classic Vienna isn't for me, but the Dos Equis interpretation is pretty good in my opinion and it's the only beer I get when I go to a Mexican restaurant and I always get it on draft.

Served in the bottle at a Mexican restaurant, so didn't see appearance, no detectable aroma, unpleasant taste

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.

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
