12 oz bottle poured into a pokal.

A = No real head, but good color and clarity.

S = Good light, maple notes in the nose, overall fresh and clean smells.

T = Fresh taste with some sharp cheddar notes at front of tongue, maple syrupy in the middle and some lemon towards the back of the mouth.

M = Mouthfeel is too carbonated and stinging on the tongue.

D = Good drinkability. Can easily drink this and feel like another would be in order.

This is the one I enjoy the most in the Mexican line. I like the dark brown color over the other Corona mainstreams. The appearance is good from the short stubby foil wrapping of the bottle to the creamy offwhite head and sticky lace. The taste starts out with a up-front hop but smooths to a lightly malt clean finish. overall good mouthfeel. We don't do mexican all that much, but when we do, this little special ( to me Bock-like ) brew is my choice.

Dark ruby brew with good carbonation and an off-white small bubbled head. Very low retention and lace.
Smells like cherries, sweet cherries and a little syrup/molasses thing and some good malt character.
Taste mildly of cherries and has a very astringent flavor and effect on the tongue. Decent hop presence and some diacetyl.
Moderate fullness of body but not something I could have more than one of in a night.

Highs: Mild yet full flavor
Lows: Head retention

From the bottle pours almost opaque brown beneath a very thick brown-tan head that fades fast to thin lacing. Nose is pretty much straight malt. Taste is pretty decent: sweet, lightly malty with a touch of sorghum. Mouth is pretty durn bubbly and wet without being overly thin. Finish is super-clean, with just a little bitterness and then nothing. This is very drinkable beer: it’s well-balanced and pleasing to drink, mild and easy going but not boring.

Overall: A pretty darned good dark lager. Recommended.

12 oz bottle. An undecipherable (to me) code on the side.

Pours a smooth, dark tea color. A small, tan head sticks the glass. Smell is a pleasant, crisp hop and some roasted, brown sugary maltness. Taste starts out low with that sweet malt, then drifts into a woody, bitter hop. Good body. Feel is cool and lasting. I'd drink a few of these with some good barbocoa..

Pours clear copper brown, with a very thin head that vanishes is a flash of an eye. Smelled a little acidic with no real appealing aromas. The tast was nothing really to note, very thin on flavors. Maybe some sweetness from malt or baley. No hops that I noticed. Very thin, watery going down. It was drinkable, after a 12 hour workday, and free. It looked better than it tasted, the bottle is nice enough, unique shape and gold lettering, but that's about it. I know not to buy it.
