I would just like to say I thoroughly enjoy this beer. It has a slightly overwhelming smell once you pour it into the glass. However the taste is great. Perfect mix of malt and hops. When I poured it into a glass the carbonation was like a was pouring a glass of soda.

Overall, a good beer that is very, very drinkable.

First off, there is absolutely no good reason to put a lime wedge into a darker lager beer. For the purpose of this review enjoyed a bottle at a Mexican restaurant after said lime was extracted from the bottle neck. This is my favorite widely available beer down in Mexico and I will drink it here too should the occasion arise (Bavaria is another really good dark Mexican lager albeit harder to find at restaurants and bars). This brew is light brown, looking like iced tea or watery cola, with a decent amount of off-white to light tan head that will keep its shape for a bit provided you don't kill it off with lime juice. This beer is also served ice-cold pretty much anywhere you order it ... The initially weak aroma and flavors will develop if the beer is allowed to warm up a bit. Nose and palate jive quite nicely, amber and dark malts providing a mellow brown sugar backdrop with hints of raisin and roasted barley, along with vanilla-esque floral notes and some hops that recall sweet hay. The beer is highly carbonated and quite thin as one might expect, but well worth the attention that you probably wouldn't pay to a Corona or Sol. Malt forward but not aggressive and the mouthfeel is somewhat creamy. Less bold than other Munich Dunkels I've had and I think this is better classfied as a Graf-style Vienna lager. The aforementioned Bavaria is a Munich dunkel. But hey.

Amber-brown color, clear. Good amount of small bubbles rising up. Thin frothy head.

Toasted malts, grainy, grassy, a little peppery.

Toasted, grainy, grassy, slight caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness is mild, yet pretty sharp. Finish is dry, clean, crisp. Body is light, crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, nice carbonation.

It's a good beer.
