Tried at Old Chicago as part of the Cinco de Mayo mini tour
A-copper colored with about a 1 finger head that stayed a little bit before fading
S-not much smell but some carmel malt did come across
T-like the smell, not much here but there is some carmelized malt that come through and give this a little flavor other than grain of the Dos Equis Special
M-pretty thin with good carbonation
O-as far as the mini tour goes this was probably the best of the bunch but when they have to slice a lime for every one of the beers on the tour its not good especially when they ruin the only decent one with a lime, which is why I don't usually review my Old Chicago beers but this Cinco tour was just not that good
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
