On-tap at Jose’s Blue Sombrero in Waukesha , WI. This pours a brownish amber color with a light beige head. Since it was served with a lime wedge, that’s all I can smell. Texture is light and thin, a very mild taste of grain. Like most Mexican beers, thin and watery.

A: Pours a clear dark reddish brown color. A two finger white head forms, but recedes in an instant. Not much lace to speak of.
S: Pale malts. Cooked corn. Grain, cereal, and metal. There is almost nothing in the nose.
T: Follows the nose. Grain, cereal, and metal. Some adjunct corn flavor. I really can't make much out.
M/D: Light as can be and way over carbonated. Very seltzer like. Easy enough to drink if it were not for the heavy prickly carbonation.

I had this at a good Mexican place. Usually I enjoy beers like this with Tex-Mex. Though this pretty much had no body for a "dark beer." Hardly any flavor or aromatic character either. I will avoid this from now on and drink Bohemia instead.

This beer has a real nice looking bottle and gold label that looks like a quality beer. Unfortunately it does not taste like one.

The head is weak and goes away after the first few sips. The color is nice ,just a standard dark amber.

What I really notice here is the lack of body, just seems to wisp away just like the head does. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but drinkable.

This is a beer that's trying to be both a lighter Mexican beer like Corona as well as a dark crafted beer at the same time, but instead comes out as a wispy lack of confidence. Disappointed in this beer, and the price paid.

This beer looked very much like a glass of coca cola when poured into my mug, almost no head at all and tons of carbonation bubbles running through it.

Smell was a very minimal sweet corn scent.

Taste was a very subdued bit of sweet corn maltiness with basically no hop prescence at all.

Mouthfeel was slick and watery with lots of carbonation.

I will defenitly skip this one the next time, not the most drinkable beer.
