I have not had a lot of experience with mexican dark lagers but this one wasn't so bad. I appreciate that they were going for a darker, more roasted taste, it just didn't quite hit the mark. More complex than your regular Dos Equis but if your going for a complex beer, don't start with this one.

I tried this beer at a Mexican restaurant in Michigan.

Appearance: (3.0) The beer is a reddish-dark brown color which is not very eye appealing but not bad looking either, so I gave it an average score.

Smell: The smell, in my opinion, was not that strong to be honest.

Taste: Since I had this beer in a Mexican restaurant, I drank it with Mexican food. I felt the beer went very well with the meal. It is definitely a "meal" type of beer. There was a hint of a bitter taste to the beer which is something that actually appeals to my personal taste and therefore receives a "good" score.

Mouthfeel: The beer actually had a slight thickness to it which adds to accompany the meal.

Drinkability: This receives the lowest score due to the fact that I feel this is a not a versatile beer by any means. Unless I eat at a Mexican restaurant, I probably won't be ordering this beer to often.

*Overall: A great beer for a Mexican-styled meal with a dark reddish color and a slightly thick feel and taste.

Good pour of dark beer with a two finger light brown head. Compares to a 26 on the SRM Beer Color Chart. Aroma of roasted corn and corn husks, oatmeal, malt, and burnt rice. Taste is a rich wave of caramel, toasted wheat, boiled corn, clover, sweet barley malt and a hint of hops. Feels close to whole milk in mouthfeel, has the coating effect, with a clinging sensation of bitterness. Good availability and a flavor that doesn't grow old after a few.
