Clear, dark amber colored beer. Good carbonation. Decent head.

Faint, tangy sweet, dark beer smell.

Tangy sweet and bitter. Overall it is pleasant. Not fantastic. Tastes better cold.

Tart. Bitter. Carbonation is a little sharp. Finish is good, long, and bitter.

A decent, affordable beer. Not for special occasions. Something a little different to session with. Or a good beer to go with fast food.

3.71/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a golden clear, dark amber with a light tan inch & half head. Weak retention, leading to a thin layer of microbubbles across the surface.

Smell - Sub par aroma. Caramel notes with slight café.

Taste - Caramel flavor present. Some earthy presence and grassy hop. Light café.

Mouthfeel - Very creamy yet light to medium body with active carbonation. Tingles the tongue yet it goes down smooth and easy.

Overall - A nice brown Mexican beer, beter than the blondes. If your at a Mexican restaurant and like dark lagers, this is a fine choices to be had. Enjoyed it.

Serving type: bottle to goblet.

2.73/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear, dark ruby brown with a light khaki finger width head. Sub-par retention, leading to a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Spotty lacing with fair stick.

Smell - Weak aroma. Subtle caramel notes. Not much else.

Taste - Follows the nose. Light but predominant caramel flavor. Ghostly presence of earth and grassy hop. That about covers it.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Tingles the tongue. Goes down smooth and easy.

Overall - My go to beer when out at a Mexican restaurant, though due to lack of choice more than anything. Outside that, it's a beer I tend to steer clear from, as there are significantly better dark lager choices to be had.
