look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Slight dark brown in color, maybe some light ruby hues. Head is hefty with a half inch of slightly opaque head.

S - Lacking a bit but I mostly get sweet caramel and bread next to a regular corn lager smell.

T - Better than expected but not much, sweet toffee, bread, and a touch of lager yeast delivering both a skunk corn flavor and watered hops.

M - Thin to medium it drinks rather well.

Overall an average brew in terms of multiple purchases. If at a Mexican restaurant I would not pass it up.

Caramel brown, thin off-white head that goes fast.

Nutty, light burnt malts, some caramel.

Nutty with some caramel & sweet burnt malts. More nuts at end & a strange, hoppy bitterness.

Medium bodied and with a creamy sort of tang to it and good carbonation that leaves a linger fizzing sensation.

This one turned out to be a bit of a disappointment in my book. Not anywhere near as good as I'd been expected. By all means give it a try but I'll not be looking out for it again.

A 355ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2011. Picked up cheap from my local off-licence.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A clear amber-brown colour with good carbonation. Forms a decent head of light-brown foam that dissipates rapidly. Aroma of sweet dark malt with hints of caramel, grain and alcohol.

Tastes of sweet caramel malt with a mild finish. Very faint hints of roasted malt and stewed hops. Mouthfeel is thin, though smooth and tingly. Slightly creamy. Weak malty aftertaste.

I like this beer - probably my favourite Mexican lager. Not world-class, but certainly a cut above Corona et al. The flavour is nothing to get excited about, but it's unchallenging and slides down nicely. Good to pair with Mexican food.
