Bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear light brown color with a tan colored head, lots of carbonation and no lacing.

A: Roasted malts, caramel, toffee, slight touch of honey, but definitely getting more dark and roasted notes.

T: Caramel, toffee, roasted malts, honey, toasted crackers, not a lot of depth or complexity, pretty straightforward, still a tasty beer.

M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation, semi-dry finish.

O: My go to if I'm eating at a small family owned Mexican restaurant, has a slight nuttiness and roasted malt notes that makes it enjoyable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look - Nice Brown/Amber appearance, mostly clear, doesn't produce much head.

Smell - Clean malty smell with some caramel and nutty characteristics.

Taste - Malty taste as well, slightly bitter aftertaste that lingers for awhile after sipping.

Feel - Nice level of carbonation, on the dry side, good body.

Overall - Pretty solid beer overall. Don't get it confused with some of the other Mexican beers out there. This is closer to a Sam Adam's Boston Lager than a Corona. So pass on the lime if you order in a Tex-Mex restaurant. One of the better widely available Mexican beers in the states.

3.51/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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
