look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Tried at Old Chicago as part of the Cinco de Mayo mini tour

A-copper colored with about a 1 finger head that stayed a little bit before fading

S-not much smell but some carmel malt did come across

T-like the smell, not much here but there is some carmelized malt that come through and give this a little flavor other than grain of the Dos Equis Special

M-pretty thin with good carbonation

O-as far as the mini tour goes this was probably the best of the bunch but when they have to slice a lime for every one of the beers on the tour its not good especially when they ruin the only decent one with a lime, which is why I don't usually review my Old Chicago beers but this Cinco tour was just not that good

On tap at Old Chicago, part of the Cinco de Mayo tour.

Amber body with a short off white head. Smell is faintly malty, toast, Caramel. Taste similarly has toasted elements, malt, mild sweetness and enough floral hop to keep the palate clean. Mouthfeel medium-light with good carbonation. One of the better Mexican mass beers.
