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

Poured from a stubby 12 oz. brown bottle into a mug. Bottle is perhaps a bit pretentious with all of its gold and foil...

Pours a clear, copper-brown hue. A tawny off-white head forms, but lingers only briefly and, upon its dissolution, leaves no real remnants on the sides of the mug.

Nose is rather basic, with just a tiny bit of toasted bread mixing with some snappy, zesty hop aromas.

Light-to-medium-bodied, with a light carbonation. Moves easily over the tongue, fueled by a light front of burnt sugar and biscuit, with a dominating, though hardly overwhelming, citrus-herbal hop presence that carries through into the rather dry finish and lingers for quite some time afterward.

Pretty drinkable and a mildly decent representation of a Dunkel, though falling short a bit (though perhaps not falling short of the aims of the brewers). The royal treatment on the bottle is indicative of the superiority of this brew over the vast majority of its homeland's bretheren, though compared to its overseas counterparts, it's far from royal.

A reddish brown color with a thin off white head that goes away quite fast, almost no lacing. Aroma is slightly grainy with a faint note of alcohol.Flavor is lightly toasted malts and a hint of molasses, Mild spicy bitterness. Finishes fairly clean, with just a light, lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Much better than expected.

This beer poured a small tan head with small-medium bubbles that quickly diminished.The body was clear and the hue was brown.The nose of this beer was fruity and there was good lacing on the sides of my glass.I found this beer to have a bitter aftertaste.

Pours a rather reddish and very dark brown tone with a thick head that leaves some lacing behind as it fades, but is consistent; much carbonation is present. The smell is very acute and citrusy with malt present. The taste, with an appealing bitterness and some sweet presence is good and has a comfortable moutfeel and a consistent body. A good mexican beer.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint.
Appearance - brown and bubbly like soda; builds a creamy off-white head. Lacing is beautiful!
Smell - some stone fruit along with sweet candy malts.
Taste - expected more flavor based on the nose. A bit bland and light.
Feel - light body, very carbonated; comes off a bit watery.
Overall - revisiting this after discovering someone left three of these in my fridge. This is actually much better than I remember, but still only an average beer.

Poured a transparent brown with a white head.

The smell was sweet,yeasty and malty.

The taste is pretty much the same as the smell. There's plenty of malts, it also has a lager taste to it.

The mouth feel is light with medium carbonation.

Overall not too bad often the best beer at a mexican resteraunt,much better than corona.

Dark caramel brown in color with little discernable head. Faint aroma of dark malt and not much else. I get nice flavor of dark Vienna malt. The mouth is thin and light.
