Had this right from the bottle at a recent mexican food dinner. Nice malty aromas, some spice character. Taste is a nice malty dark lager with some chocolatey roasted flavors and some slightly hidden dried fruit notes. It still maintains the macro lager drinkability...thin and easy. Overall, one of my favorite Mexican brews and macro style lagers widely available.

Hazy brown body with a thin head. Yeast, some caramel malts and very mild spiciness but mild for the style make up the aroma. Flavor is hard to break down but milk chocolate toffee and caramel are prevalent however not spicy enough for the style.. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nicely smooth. Not terrible but it is what it is.

My only complaint on this beer is that I wish it had a bigger nose. It's a little subtle but still a wonderful scent. This beer has great malt character and a smooth, easily approachable lager mouthfeel. Not too carbonated and very thirst-quenching. The robust dark malts are not as pronounced as a schwarzbier from Germany. The hops on this beer are not as Euro-bitter as other Munich Dunkels out there. Sweet carmel amber malts and clean finish make this beer delicious. Mexico's best in the U.S.
