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.

This is much better than the sister beer ....much more flavor and depth. Drink it cold and goes well with steak...burgers and Mexican food. Love the carmel taste..very nice.
