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.

The beer is clear, brown, medium amount of carbonation and a very thing soapy head. The beer has a simple light malty aroma with a hint of sweetness. The beer is well balanced, light in malt flavors and not too sweet, there is a light bitterness and slight dryness to it. Medium bodied beer, nice carbonation feel to it. Very smooth.

I had this beer on tap in Guadalajar...there are better mexican beers. This one is dark, but with little taste, common for lagers that have been around for a long time! Bland, boring. Get another beer

You know I actually really like this beer alot. It's not my style at all but man is it refreshing. Definitely one of the best Vienna Lagers I've tried to date, including more crafty ones.

This one is not for me. So bland I was sorry I opened it. With Eliot Ness and Brooklyn Lager so available, this was a mistake. Was not off-putting or horrible, just nothing stood out.
