Unique shaped squat brown 12 oz bottle with gold foil. Cryptic date code, no date or abv.
Aroma: Slight corn smell, some light malt, slight grape aroma.
Appearance: Dark amber glass with good clarity. The small coat of tan left some lace.
Flavor: Odd mix of grape and corn. Balance is slightly to the malt, no hop tastes noted. Some toasted malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, a touch over carbonated and a fairly clean finish
Overall Impression: A pretty mild taste. I have fond memories of this beer, but sitting to review it I’m just not being blown away. The taste is very neutral and somewhat bland, but clean. Drinkability would be enhanced with a good plate of enchiladas, but overall, not bad, not great.

I first tried this beer in Cancun and i was really impressed because i was used to taste modelo beers that were freezing and had limes (i.e. Corona) but this beer for my tastes was actually pretty good. Its apperance is very appealing a darkish brown with a frosty head that seesm to disipate fast. Good caramel taste and some prononuced hints of malt.

Probably the best tasting of the mexican lot....

A-Pours a nice looking medium brown...relatively clear..

S-Mildly sweet...a touch of caramel...also some light toasted malt characteristics

T-Nice mild maltiness highlighted...even milder caramel on the taste....a little earthiness...has some brown ale qualities...

M-Finishes with a little bit of a zippiness most likely from the carbonation...Carbonation is pretty high....body is relatively light which you'd expect with a mexican beer.

D-Pretty decent for what it is...a good drinker in the sun despite its darker color...works as a quencher but also has more flavor than most mexican beers...as a vienna it is not in the league with some of the german versions but I've always considered the mexican vienna's a different beer anyhow...I'll drink this again...

a re-review from 4-10-02. it's been a long time!

pours out a dark amber colour...maybe mahoghany. thinnish head which leaves some sparse lace. easy on the nose, some dark roasted malt...cocoa and toffee. some roasted caramel malt in the taste. more light chocolate and caramel undertones with some light spicy hopping. mouthfeel was a bit light and crisp, about what it should be. some hop bite on the tongue. medium lagerish body. overall pretty decent for a dark lager...nice drinkability.

nice dark lager or munich dunkel or whatever since it's changed on BA since my last review many (blue) moons ago. it does have a slight euro dark lager feel and taste to it. i actually adjusted my scores upward a bit from my prior review almost eight years ago. recommended to try.

a nice thirst quenching way to start out my new years eve.
