One of the better Mexican beers. If you want to start drinking some Mexican beers, this one would be one of the first ones I would try. There is obviously better Mexican beers out there, but they are harder to get your hands on.

From the Hy-Vee Mix-A-Six cooler in Watertown, SD.

Appearance (3.25) : A little lacking. Cute little off-white cap no larger than 1 finger tall on top of a rusted copper colored body. Body has about 60% opacity, shadows can be seen but not images or words. Lacing in the form of one solid ring is left as the head recedes to about 1/4".

Aroma (3.75) : A sweet apple cider aroma with cinnamon, ginger, and musty grain. Very strong on the apple cider/cinnamon stick notes. Musty grain just hints at the tip of the nose and also at the end. Ginger is in the middle. A very sweet smelling Vienna.

Taste (4) : A good amount of yeast in this one. I'm getting some apple bread, pecan, a sour note I can only describe as sour wheat (but this may be a hop note I'm tasting), and ends dryly with very dominant whole wheat bread crust. I like these Mexican amber/Vienna beers. The yeast is absolutely loud and I love that.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Zaps the tip of the tongue, and then turns watery with carbonation underneath. Slightly dry in the body, which is light. Ends dry with the bread crust flavor/feel.

Overall (3.77) : I would certainly have this again. I'm not going to rush out and buy a pallet of it, but if someone offered it to me I'd gladly drink it. It has a great yeasty body with nice fruity notes and heavy bread crust at the end. I like the bread and the yeast. A yeast/wheat flavor remains on the palate long after the swallow. A decent beer, worthy of a taste.
