Poured this Dunkel Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a dark brown color, produced a tannish thick head, excellent retention and left ample lacing on the pint glass. The aroma features toasted grain, and a slight citrus hop note. Light in body, this lager features toasted grain, carmel candy sweetness and some slight hop bitterness at the finish. This is probably my favorite Mexican brewed beer thus far. Not outstanding but it's worth a try. Post!

I don't think I could drink this beer alone for too long. It has a light feel but hints of a roasty taste reminiscent to darker beers.

Now this is just personal taste, but after awhile the light feel of the beer wears on me and I end up really wishing this was a deep, rich beer. However if you drink this while eating a burger or something, it's refreshing as hell; it begs to be paired up with some food.

Served on tap at The Cubano in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a clear dark amber in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate amounts of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness and just a hint of nuttiness.

T: Similar to the smell, the flavor of this beer has a light to moderate body of caramel malts that imparts some light amount of sweetness upfront. There are some hints of nuts and a light hop bitterness that lingers in the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth but slightly thin.

O: This beer is refreshing, easy to drink, and enjoyable. I could definitely put down a few of these in an evening and it pairs very nicely with the flavors of Mexican, Cuban, and South American food.
