3.71/5 rDev +11.1%
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.
