Pours a mahogany color and crystal clear. Deep, dark and brilliant copper. Has a beige or off white head of creamy foam that fell pretty fast and left wet lace. It refreshes itself to a ring around the glass. The nose was malty and sweet with caramel and lots of bread. Touch of citrus over the top and faint lager yeast character to make it pretty attractive to the nose. It tastes pretty good. It's sweet and has some floral hops in the drink. But the lions share is a very smooth and flowing malt. It's not cloying and the sweetness is never out of hand. The lager character takes over in the after taste with that yeast and spice and the citrus keeps it lively and juicy.

This beer was a surprise. I have heard so much about how bad the mexican beers and I was prepared for awful. I even bought a lime . . . just in case. This drank deliciously. Exceptional color, exceptionally smooth and the sweetness is just what you want alongside a spicy dish of mexican or southwestern food. In fact the body of this beer was very well done. It wasn't watery, it wasn't thick . It was neutral if that makes any sense. Where I could criticize is that the sweetness flattens it a little. The citrus could have been a little more too. It had the faintest hop bitter to accentuate the finish but that was weak as well.

Pretty good overall.

Dark auburn which glows like an ember in the light. A silky cap sticks around.

Not a typical mexican beer smell, fortunately. Bits of cocoa amongst floral & herby notes. Raisin and dark chocolate.

The taste is light fruit and chocolate. There is a watery taste reminiscent of macro breweries but it is negligible. There is no depth or finish to the beer, really just a simple sweet fruity taste.

Carbonation is light and refreshing.

This is one of those beers that you buy if you are in a grocery store with not exactly the most divine of selections. Passable, not outstanding.
