I've never had this style before so it's a bit hard to rate this per style but nonetheless this is a decent lager. Aroma is sweet and malty - some fig and a bit of fruitiness detected. Pours a copper red with decent head that dissipates quickly - carbonation is medium. Tastes like a light porter, easy to drink, smooth on the tongue - very little bittering hops. A decent beer and a great option at a Mexican restaurant over a watery Dos Equis.

When poured, beer has a small head, a dark brown to copper color. Smell is very bready, malty, and sugar are present. Taste is quite interesting-- almost nothing but malt and hops, and taste is non-descript actually. Medium carbonation, good mouthfeel, and very clean finish. Almost no aftertaste at all. Very refreshing and light feel.

Beer is quite different in that it is nothing like a Porter or Stout, but more like a solid lager. After getting past the stereotypes of dark beer and assuming this is a strong beer , this beer is actually refreshing. This might become my new 'lawnmower beer'. Would go good with many entrees at dinnertime too.

This one is a bit of a puzzle. Looks like a darker ale (not stout), foams like one, smells medium and tastes medium with a light seltzer finish. Confusion or initial impressions aside, it's a drinkable beer, not one to be kicked off the table necessarily, just doesn't provide any distinguishing flavour characteristics from dollar draft night.

I just didn’t like it. I’m not into sweet beers. Had I known it was that style I would have never bothered. To me , dark beer screams porter or stout. This was nothing like that. Ewwww. Never again.

Inoffensive easy-drinker. The dark / negra malt isn't all that dark & not complex, otherwise just a pretty straightforward shelf lager, light & crisp with off flavors

Bought a 12-pack bottles from Foodland $12.69
Caramel smell
Amber-brown color
High arbonation
Medium mouthfeel
Caramel, roasted malt flavors
Overall one of the better Mexican beers I've had. I would buy this again.
