Poured this Vienna Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This brew poured a light brown to copper color and produced a off white head, decent retention and nice lacing left on the glass. The aroma of this brew consists of toasted malt and some trace amount of hops. Light in body, this brew has the taste of sweet toasted grain, semi- dry feel, some earthy hop bitterness. One of my favorite "Mexican Lager's" sure beats the heck out of Corona. Prost!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Served on tap at the local mexican restaurant.

Arrived a clear medium abler with a good white head. Retention and lacing maker were decent.

Smell was slightly caramel along with some malt. Not bad.

The taste had hints of caramel and roasted malt with a slightly grassy hop flavor. Not bad but not spectacular either. One of the better mexican beers but that's not saying much. Usually my go-to with mexican food.

Serving type: on-tap

1.9/5  rDev -39.1%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Caramel color with a 1/4 inch head and no retention

Smell: Dirty mexican bath water with a toffee note

Taste: Again same as the nose. The beer does taste better than some of the other awful mexican beers out there but still not good

Mouthfeel: Thin and fairly carbonated

Overall: Again just an awful example of what a beer could be

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Clear reddish amber body with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. A surprising bit of lacing considering the head hardly ever existed. Not much aroma but the taste is okay.

This isn't the best Vienna lager out there, but I think it's probably the best beer I've had from this particular brewery.
