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%

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.

3.25/5  rDev -2.7%

Appearance: Copper; small head that dissipates quickly

Aroma: Malty; sweet; banana taffy smell

Taste: Malty; sweet; a little bitter on finish; not bad overall, but not as good as I remembered.

Remarks: Gave one to my German neighbor. His response, "It's not German."

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
