Much better draft than out of the bottle...maybe I just had an old bottle.

Pours clear medium amber with a thin beige head, good retention. Aromas of hay, caramel, biscuit, earth. Light watery body, good carbonation. Light sweetness, a hint of citrus, gentle bitter finish.

On a recent fishing trip I had occasion to taste a lot of different beers. Honestly, one of the best I had was a pint of this on tap. Not normally a fan of Mexican beers but this was an exception.

Not a bad beer. Call me cheap, but it all depends on the $$$. I've been to bars, grills, restaurants and even package liquor stores that seem to think that this is a premium beer, thus they price it accordingly. If that's the case, this beer sucks. But put it down there with the other cheaply made lagers and I think this is a nice, drinkable beer.

Metallic smell and taste overwhelm what could be a nice session beer.

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.
