Not bad for this country. That is drinkable with some taste. Nice foam in pour and amber colour. Works as a Vienna. Smooth drink with significant malt. Light mouthfeel, mild bitter aftertaste. Would work with spicy food. From broken sixpacks at LCBO. (250 characters)

Had this at Hooters tonight, because well, there was a decent selection for Hooters, about 40 beers, but this was the only one I had never had, so that was reason enough for me. Pored a golden amber, with a slight reddish hue. A big fizzy white head graced the top and faded quickly leaving behind a decent little top of film, and some residual lacing for a minute or two. Nice carbonation was evident from the start. Smell was very light, practically non existent here. What was there was maybe some kinda light grain, but it was really faint, maybe a touch of some kind of bready yeast..The taste was rather blah and non descript. Your typical amber lager really. Lots of malt, no hops, and a touch of grain, thats about it. Pretty good mouthfeel as the carbonation kept things pretty lively on the palate, and it went down very smooth, with a quick, crisp finish. Very clean. Drinkability was above average, as very cold this was one that you could throw down a ton of. Overall I have had muc worse, and for a macro, not actually half bad. Went pretty damn well with dinner. I would definatly have one again, though I wouldn't put a sixer in my fridge (1,154 characters)

A: The beer is clear coppery amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that never faded away and left lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are aromas of corn in the nose along with notes of caramel and toasted malts.
T: The taste is a little better than the smell because the corn aromas are subdued; there are flavors of toasted and caramel malts along with some hints of malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer certainly looks like a Vienna Lager but does not really smell like one, having more of a resemblance to that of an adjunct lager. (694 characters)

A clear amber pour with a nice head. The nose is very mild...light fuitiness takes some shape. The taste overall is bland. Almost no hoppiness. Malts are sublte if not hidden. There seems to be a pinch of citrusy sweetness on the finish but that fades quite fast. A light bodied beer with a decent mouthfeel. An easy drinker but little in the way of interesting qualities. (372 characters)

Appearance – Brownish-orange in color and very clear. No head to speak of.

Smell – Faint malt aroma with no balance.

Taste – Not much there other than the smallish malt from the aroma. It seems like there’s something bitter in there – an attempt to balance maybe – but the flavor was uninspiring overall.

Mouthfeel – Light carbonation helped this one along, but the flavor made for some gagging swallows.

Drinkability – Not the tastiest beer in the world, but fine for a hot summer day. (506 characters)

Amber with a white head that stays around a while.

Make sure and get a whiff of it quickly, as the aroma fades fast. Slightly nutty, grainy, with a hint of caramel.

The taste fades about as fast as the smell. It's pretty bland with hints of caramelized malts and a slightly dirty taste, though the mouthfeel is pretty good.

I want to lower my score more with every sip. (372 characters)

This is a suprisingly dark beer for Vienna Lager, like a dull Irish Red almost. A forceful pour gives a big head that dies slowly, but is gone without a trace by the time I'm 1/3 done. I smell only faintest whiff of what I think is crystal malt aroma. This beer wasn't much to report on, one dimensional metallic and caramel flavor with no toasted character at all. I did notice something strange when I started eating Spanish rice with it. It took on cinnemon, woody, and boozy flavors that prettymuch made it taste like spiced rum. I'm not reviewing based on that, but they were delicious together.

Mouthfeel is a great consistency but damn, this is one flat beer, and still, it stung the mouth a tad. (707 characters)

This was a pretty good mexican beer. It poured a dark brownish color with a thin fizzy head that faded quickly. The smell was strong on grain and malt. The taste was pretty decent with good malt flavors and a touch of hops. Although the taste was dominated by grain it was a smoothe flavor that went very well with the chips and salsa I had. A good mexican brew to get if it is offered. (386 characters)

I've had this and the lager here in the US, and found them lacking. Tried this again on a recent trip to Mexico, and I swear there's a difference. The beer was a dark brown with a thick tan head. It had a nice malty aroma. Taste also malty, with a little caramel and some hops. Very enjoyable, and it stood up well with Mexican food. (333 characters)
