In the appearance, is a coppery color, with a poor head of foam, the bottle and the logo are retro; lot of caramel and sugar in the smell; some essences of caramel and roasted malts in the taste; the drinkability is good; The mouthfeel is watery and fizzy, with a low bitterness.

Carta Blanca Edicion Especial pours a nice red-brown color with small foamy head and almost no lacing; Smell is malty and caramel; Taste is sweet and malty; Mouthfeel is malty; Very drinkable.

Good brew for mexican food and those summer hot days.

¡Salud!

A so called Special Edition, with no explanation on why it was put on the market.

Anyway, I am noticing a sort of attention to darker beers here in México, and this one is an one example.

Pours a dark amber reddish, with a small white head and almost nothing of a lace.

Smell is faint, you can hardly pick up some malts.

Taste is mild, as most Mexican beers, crisp and more prone to the malts. Although it has a weak bitter finish, probably from a little Cascade hops.

Mouthfeel is malty, with a mild body, watery actually.

Drinkability is good, might make a session beer since it bears a 4.5% ABV.

¡Salud!

Another ""innovation"" from CCM, the only announced ads in wide country for this is it label that goes printed in offset in a .005" transparent synthetic paper; by other way, good beer for me, good ina friday night over two or three bottles, wit enchiladas and salsa borracha; this beer got the graphics from 1890`s its early label, at last the CCM says; i got many repros of the early label and is closer than the distance from LA to NY, but what we do?;

a deepy red color almost like a vienna but more malty; the CCM ever produced a german style beers like:
Saturno: Bock
Carta Blanca, Pilsener
XX Amber, Vienna
Salvator, Doppelbock
Sol, Lager
Bohemia, etc.

I recommended this a 80%;
and others
