look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint from a 325ml bottle.

A: Translucent dark amber, small head and some thin lacing on the glass. Not a bad looking beer.

S: Smell is the greatest turn down in almost all mexican macros. People drink out of the bottle most of the time, but once you pour this beer into a glass, the semi rancid aroma steps up.

T: Light roasted malts, some dry wood and some sweetness. Finishes a little seet.

M: Light body, medium carbonation.

D: As a macro, drinkability is high. This is a little bit more expensive than most of mexican macro beers, and could be the best of them. Very good to pair with spicy mexican food.

Nice dark beer color: amber. Head lasts only a few momements.

I drink this beer a lot when travelling in Mexico, but have never had it in a wine glass before. This is not recommended. It has the smell of a clean, but wet dog.

Taste is nice and malty, with a light European style hops on my tongue. Nice tasting beer. Better in a regular glass rather than a wine glass.

Lighter, heavy for a Mexican brew, but not as heavy as it appears. A small amount of malt lingers.

A tasty beer best consumed from the bottle or a glass where the aroma does not pool.

A - Pours a reddish brown color with a little white head.

S - Malt, chocolate, barley, wheat, licorice.

T - Metallic taste with roasted malt and wheat. Alcohol and water and kind of a citric tones with bitter aftertaste.

M - High carbonation, crisp and bitter aftertaste. Leaves your mouth and back of your tongue dry and the bitterness makes you want another sip.

Overall, a good beer among all of the popular Mexican beers out there; one of the best but not for much. It's great for a dry and hot weather, like those in a typical Mexican summer. Highly recommended if you come to Mexico and want to taste something different and better than Corona.

Brown in color with a tanned head. Nothing interesting about the look, and the foam is poor. No lacing from this bottle.

Nose is too clean, with a slight skunkiness. Malts are caramelized but only just faintly. Maybe an herbal tea note. Weak.

Same for the flavor. Malt drives the flavor but there isn't a lot. Toasted notes, some black tea, hint of diacetyl, and carbonation notes. Body is light and overcarbonated, finish is super fast.

Hints of hazelnut and coffee save this from being really bad, but it's not far off. Fortunately it's not cloyingly sweet like some other Cuauhtemoc brews...
