3.53/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz. brown long neck. Gold label with gold artwork and a red/maroon XX. No freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Brownish copper in colour with a semi-sticky cream coloured lace that retains pretty well to the sides of the glass.

Smell: Touch of malt with toasted and sweet undertones. Very faint floral hop and trace alcohol also in the aroma.

Taste: Crisp and dry malt mouth feel of grain and a touch of husk, faintly light hop flavour and a residual sweetness hit in the middle and let through a very light bitterness. Malt is a little thin but the toasted character makes up for that a bit. The aftertaste lingers with left over residual dextrins and leaves the mouth clean.

Notes: One of the better lagers to be imported from Mexico and a better pick from mass-produced American amber lagers like Michelob Amber Bock and the like though pale in compairison to some of the more flavourful Vienna Style Lagers. Pairs well with mild bean or chicken burritos covered with Monterey Jack cheese.

Had this at a local Mexican restaurant. Decent and comparable to Yuengling (my favorite mass-produced beer). Here goes:

A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours a dark brown with a one inch head that quickly dissipates. Very little lacing, too, but not bad.

S: Not that much going on here. Caramel malt is present but it's very light (hardly detectable). No hops or yeast.

T: Good. Presence of burnt caramel malt imparts toasty characteristics. It tastes like a watered-down Yuengling. As I was drinking it I was wishing it was Yuengling instead.

M: Light-bodied; lighter than Yuengling. Slight bready character makes up for the light body somewhat, though. Not bad.

O: OK beer. Would rather have a Yuengling, but not bad.

This beer was okay. I enjoyed the barley that was in it, and I enjoyed the malt of this beer. I liked the hops that this beer has as well. Ir was not too heavy at all. And for a fairly cheap beer it was a decent beer. I have only had this beer in a bottle, I would like to try it on tap and see wich one taste better.
