Reads 5.4% by Vol. on bottle. I have not seen this beer in the stores since the early 80's back then it was one of the best on store shelves. We used to go out of our way to buy this malty beer. I paid $13.99/12pk today oh well...

Appearance- is average deep brown and clear. Pours and holds a good head.
Smell- whisp's of alcohol and caramel
Taste- first taste was cheap alcohol, adjuct grain or sugar then malt finish
mouthfeel-First sip bites you a little, after that it gets a little smoother, finish is dry.
Overall- ok, I put in the american bock catagory not horrible but not of a german breed.
I think its a Dos EquisXX Amber with some boost added to it. It tastes like that exactly.
One of the best beers from mexico
Cheers!

Pours a nice dark, copper-red color and sports a thick, sticky head. Fair malt scent; bright and musty. Decent if unspectacular malt flavor; some caramel; slightly bitter. Clean, dry finish, medium-light body.

A reasonably drinkable, flavorful bock beer. Nothing out of the ordinary but worth a try.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear darker amber, light-light bubbles on the body. Head is off-white maybe half a finger's length. After a sip settles slightly uneven lacing.

Smell: Light hop scent, nothing here that you haven't smelled before.

Taste: Here is where it gets a little interesting. I say that in regards you don't see a lot of Latin countries attempt a bock. It comes off lightly malty and maybe a notch sweet. Light hop bitterness that makes it really easy to drink.

Mouth: Smooth, comes off with a toasty finish with its medium carbonation.

Overall: I hate to make promises but this one is at minimum satisfying. Not great not bad, but compliments any meal regardless of style. Drink up fellas (and ladies), Salud!

12oz bottle
Served in a flute

A - It is dark amber colored with amber highlights. It is topped with an inch of beige head.

S - The aroma is sweet. It has some caramel and toffee.

T - The taste matches the smell. It is sweet caramel and toffee.

M - Moderate

O - This is one of the least offensive beers that I have had out of Mexico. It drinks easy and the taste is okay. I'd put it with Negro Modelo.
