12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - amber colored (shocking i know), foam head is medium and some good lacing on the glass
Smell - sweet malt, corn, honey and slight coffee
Taste - Although i prefer no corn syrup, this isn't too bad. It is sweet but not syrupy. Toasted and roasted Malt is pretty much the flavor, very bready and grainy. Caramel. Not much in the way of chocolate or coffee. Carbonation is medium and fairly drinkable. Not the best beer for eating food with, somewhat filling as it is a darker beer than typical mexican lager.

Overall, easy to drink, smooth, with good flavor. Not exceptional or bursting but its just a good amber beer. Grade is A-

A beer that could be a nice Vienna. It just isn't.
Sweet for the style and without the subtle complexity. Light in the malt department and the hops do little to balance things out.

Look: Perfectly clear amber color with a large tan head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Very malty with a sharp, almost spicy note. Grass and toasted grain.

Taste: Extremely watered down. A faint hint of toasted malt and that's about it.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thick with little carbonation.

Overall: Every part of this beer is great for an amber lager...except the taste. I don't know how such a thick beer with such a strong smell tastes so watered down.
