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.

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

pours out a clear mahoghany colour with a some sparse foam and lace. graininess on the nose with some cocoa and nougat aromas...hints of caramel and ripe fruit, too. smells nice enough. the flavour profile is a touch light in the shorts...it has crisp notes of bock related maltiness...some herbal and spice hop nuances. it notches just above a dark lager, but falls a bit short of seeming like a full fledged bock. the mouthfeel is crisp and a touch metallic, with an overall medium light body. it blurs the line between trying to be easily drinkable and full flavoured.

overall this isn't bad, but nothing really stands out as being special. therefor it falls a bit short of being worth seeking out. glad i got my bottles for free.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours out clear dark brown with red hues when held to the light. Head is nice, thick, and with decent retention. Not too much lacing on this one. The nose is grainy with a mix of citrus and floral hops and solid malt backbone. Extremely light on flavor. A little bit of grains and a little bit of metal. Hops are almost nonexistent and the malts have vanished. Mouth feel is watery at best with hints of carbonation. This beer went downhill fast. Never will I buy this again.

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

A - Poured out a clear, dark brown color with a one-finger, egg-shell white head of foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled malty and somewhat roasty.

T - It tasted malty with toffee and caramel flavors. There was a slight roast character, too.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a nice bock. Seems different than most German bocks and less sweet than American ones.
