Appearance - The beer pours a dark blonde color with white bubbles crowning the pour.

Smell - It smells like beer. It smells like the same generic stuff my father and grandfather drank when I was a kid.

Taste - sweet cereal grains come at the front. There is bitterness toward the back with grassy notes and perhaps a hint of hops. Believe it or not, the bitterness lingers slightly.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is a little overwhelming. It needs to come down a couple matches to allow something to linger besides the sweetness.

Mouthfeel -For a beer that is at most grocery stores, this is actually pretty good.

Somewhat dark appearance with some head and carbonation that dedicates quickly. Very mild aroma. Taste is also very mild taste if you can call it that

Exp. "06042017", I guess it ain't fresh, and I'm getting started with it a bit too cold. Contains antioxidants, stabilisers and color agents. Almost no foam, ice tea color, subtle aromas of caramel, apple fruitiness and earthy hops, which show most clearly on mouth, together with a bit of a metallic note. Prolonged aftertaste.

Pours nice and coppery with an off white head that thins out yet settles well in the glass. Smells of roasted malt, doughy yeast, and caramel. Taste is on the mark a little sweet with a dash of bitterness that balance. Smooth and medium bodied. This is the best export from Mexico, an under appreciated Vienna.

Of all the Mexican beers I have tried, this one beats them all. I get this on tap at the local Mexican restaurant. The taste is smooth and sweet....the type I like the most. Very dark and lightly carbonated. Never been disappointed with this one...even in the bottle.
