A good, not great, Mexican beer. Fuller and more flavorful than you typical light lager. A refreshing change from Corona and similar. If we're judging based on style guidelines, this beer gets good marks, low- to mid-30s (out of 50).
Mild aroma of malt with slight corn/vegetables. Balanced flavor with a bit of caramel. No hop aroma or flavor, only enough neutral bitter to balance the sweet background. Moderately low body. Finishes clean. Good beer with chilled spiced shrimp or chips and salsa. I'd buy it again.

Finally got to try a 355ml León bottle on our last full day in Zihuatanejo, a small corner bar at the corner of Avenidas Vicente Guerrero y Nicholas Bravo. 20 pesos - served from a fridge, I poured to a small glass and sat at a shady sidewalk counter facing the street.
4.5% - "Cerveza Negra"
A: Tawny/amber color, mostly clear. A 1/2 finger ivory head and plenty of rising carbonation. head fades somewhat quickly, but lace sticks around awhile, descending slowly while glistening in the backlit sunshine.
S: Sweet malty/cereal scent - grassy, doughy, some caramel.
T: Crisp 'apple' flavor and a pleasant 'baked bread' graininess. Starchy, nutty quality and good balanced sweetness.
M: Slightly effervescent, light-medium body.
O: Good flavors, clean and refreshing. Very easy to finish. Considerably more flavor than much of the standard 'light lagers' in Mexico, so it's an option for anyone looking to go beyond Corona, Dos Equis, Tecate and the like... pretty well done for the 'Dunkel Lager' style.
