My favorite mexican beer, I wish the world would consider this as the beer from mexico and not corona. Pours deep amber, coppery, with red highlights. Aroma and taste are of vienna malts and bitterness is right for the style. Great beer.

Not the easiest beer to find in Mexico but worth the purchase as it rivals Negro Modelo as one of the best macros from here. Malty and well finished with a nice mouthfeel this is a great beer with food .

Nutty, earthy, malty, brown sugar, with just a hint of adjunct taste in there. Not bad.

Poured from bottle into the tallest glass in the condo

A: Pours a dark amber color with a one finger head which is off white with a lot of small bubbles. There is a little bit of lacing, which is better than I can say for most Mexican beers.

S: I get a lot of malt on the nose, a little bit of biscuityness.

T: A lot of malt on the taste as well, there is a hint of lemon and a faint nutty flavor.

M/D: Goes down very smooth, extremely drinkable. More complex than most Mexican beers, probably my favorite, but a little harder to find in stores than most in Mexico. If it is available, its what I am drinking.

Poured from a bottle up to the green tinged rim of a traditional Mexican hand shaped glass. This 'Bohemia Obscura', or 'dark' beer easily won Best of Show for my trip to what I otherwise expected to be a beer wasteland in Puerto Vallarta.

Beer pours a deep copper amber with a half inch of light bubbly off-white head. Retention and lacing are present but thin. Smells of lightly sweet caramel malts with a bit of woody hops.

Tastes of smooth malts with nutty caramel and lingering coffee undertones. Feel is quite nice. The light coffee sticks around in the finish and is met with some malts for a balanced close. Not very sweet and light on the tongue with just the right amount of carbonation. Easy drinking. Dark and reasonably complex yet smooth, making it well suited for the typical weather of its homeland.

Bottle at Amaité Cafe, Puebla, Mexico

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with thin off white head that died down, leaving a collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark malts are present in the smell.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of dark Malts and hints of malt extracts.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has s moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is very light in body compared to other beers in the style.

Certainly the best beer from Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, i know it as the caramel beer.

A: Dark amber color, small head of foam that contrasts with thier blackness, acceptable lacing;

S: Malt with notes of toffee and biscuit;

T: Sweet malt, with notes of nuts and chocolate;

M: Refreshing, high bitterness, medium body and high carbonation;

D: Is true that is uncomparable.
