Poured from a bottle into a 12 oz plastic cup at the airport. It has a lovely clear medium-brown color with no lacing or head at all. Aroma is hops, caramel, and a bit of malt. Flavor is hops, malt, caramel, mild but balanced, and tipping a bit more to the hops side, which I enjoy. Mouthfeel is a bit foamy. Overall this is a good brown lager, but I really prefer ales--porters, stouts and IPAs.

Medium to large off white to maybe light tan head settles to a nice lacing above a clear bright copper amber colored beer.

Light caramel to almost chocolate malts with some different things coming through, spices, nutmeg, not sure but they're there but very light.

Light maybe caramel maybe chocolate malts mix well to give this beer a definite flavor but not in any particular direction, and then I added a slice of lime and this beer seemed to explode with flavors but again in no particular direction, light malts, light hops, light citrus fruits and lime.

Easy drinking beer with a lighter taste that brings a variety of light tastes but really you should throw a slice of lime in the mix and it becomes, to me, the best mass market Mexican beer out there.

A - This beer looks very appetizing with a dark brown chestnut color and very thin head.

S - My nose is a little stuffy right now but it smells a little bit like chocolate and malty sweetness

T - Instantly refreshing like a glass of water but then it hits you with the sweetness of the malt and an alcoholic afterglow. Not dry and stays wet well after the initial taste

M - Watery and thin but not too much so. Also not very heavy... Very nice on a hot day or with spicy foods.

O - For Mexican beer this one is well made and balanced. Sweet and refreshing without too much bitterness. A slightly heavier mouthfeel would please me more but this beer is good as is.
