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

Clear, brown colored lager with an amber glow. Thick bubbles of carbonation stream upward from the bottom of the glass. The foam is off-white, about a half-inch thick to start, holding nice as a thin film never completely dissipates. Clean, mild aroma with a light doughy sweetness. It's nice but faint, and I would like to get a bit more from it.

The taste has a light bready zest, with a hint of fruit. Subtle bitterness at the back. Not much to be real thrilled about. It's all a bit watered down and ultimately doesn't hold my attention for long. Medium body, average carbonation. Tastes mild in alcohol strength.

Overall a decent Bock beer, nothing special but relatively well made.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

smells clean in glass, malt.

red brown amber color through glass, filtered.

lacing is fine, head is not super prominent.

taste is sugary sweet, malty.

crisp on tongue.

no hop taste or smell that i can really detect...

This is an ok beer, but the overly sugary aftertaste detracts for me. Makes me think adjunct.

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!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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!
