Small capped bottle poured into a pint.

Reddish brown, a bit lighter than you expect for a beer called "dark", but still looks good.
Aroma is faint, but shows some caramel and sweet maltiness; taste is also faint, but shows the same malty notes.
Not a good beer by any means, but some of the best options in most Mexican restaurants.

We spent a week at an all inclusive resort in Cancun and with some minor exceptiona, this and the regular Dos Equis were all that was available. All you care to drink.

Unfortunately, the same was the case for the wine, liquor and food at the resort. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.

The food generally looked better than it tasted. The wash sometimes lacked for presentation (plastic cups at many of the bars) but quantity and availability weren't an issue. There were bars everywhere and eager servers to bring you drinks. And stuff was OK.

The on-tap "obscura" dark beer was without much character. But if I had it to do over (and I do), I'd do it again, even with this as the best beer available at the resort. Quality made up for with quantity.
