This is another one of those Mexican beers that I like to order in a Mexican restaurant on draft when I can find it.
Appears dark amber with a nice white foamy head that dropped quickly and very light lacing.
Smells bready, malty, lightly spicy, floral.
Taste follows the nose.
Mouth feel is medium light for the style.
Overall, worth ordering on draft if you are in a Mexican restaurant.
I'd never go out of my to drink this canned or bottled.

My bud that drinks Tecate also likes this one, I do too.
A medium brown color, a slightly bad smell. A full bodied caramel tinged taste with a coating mouth feel. Overall this beer is average, hence the 3 rating.

Vienna it ain't.

I swear every time I taste this is seems different. At times thin, or rich, malty, or not, caramel or burn matchstick. It looks like a Dark Viennese Lager but looks are deceiving. I suppose part of my impression is due to drinking this primarily in restaurants but all of them can't have a slow turnover. At it's best it's malty, toffeeish, caramely with enough hops to notice. Most times it's just disappointing. Out of caution I just don't buy it anymore.

But don't listen to me, you may have better luck.

I had this on draught in a restaurant, served in a pint glass with a wedge of lime. The color was a dark reddish amber with a thin, milk-white head and lacing. I think the head would have been more impressive if served at a warmer temperature. The smell was not particularly strong, again probably because of the temperature at which it was served: it smelled of sweet malt and a whiff of caramel. The taste wasn't bad, although there was little to distinguish it: sweet malt, caramel, and some fruitiness. There is a hint of hops at the finish but no real bitterness. This lager has a low ABV and is very drinkable but is also rather non-descript. It's okay at a bar but I would not purchase it to drink at home.
