Poured into a small pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a thin, fizzy head that dissipated quickly, leaving slight lacing. Aroma of grainy biscuit malt, light grassy hops and a hint of caramel. Flavor is mild biscuit malt, a little caramel and slight grassy hops. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Not really a traditional amber, more like a Vienna lager; it's light enough that I can't tell if it's an ale or lager, but it has the Vienna profile. A satisfactory beer, darker than many of the adjunct lagers from this brewery, but with little amber character. Eh.

This is a new version of the Modelo brand, an american amber lager with a very mild and acid flavor and a very astringent bitterness. It´s extremely highly carbonated and hard to drink.

Amber color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma of a regular adjunct lager with notes of bread and mild corn. There is a toasted note a mile away.
Flavor with notes of slightly toasted malts, faint herbal hops and caramel. It does not feel sweet. Medium dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Same as their Victoria, this is a light version of a Vienna Lager which misses the notes I like in the style, but it is superior to the local regular beers.
