COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A well balanced combination of malts and hops come together to produce this full bodied red ale. Aromatic at first, the malt soon dominates the flavor of this ale, finally giving way to a smooth hop finish. This beer has plenty of flavor, aroma and body.

Had this at the Brewery in Mexico. "OH, Honey, let’s open up a brew pub in Mexico! We will serve watered-down mexican donkey piss but noone knows beer in mexico and the dumb-ass tourists won’t know much else than shitty tasting macro brews so it doesn’t matter if our beer is watery shit." Big disappointment and $4 bucks is a bit over the top for shitty beer in Mexico.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Lightly hazed orange/amber pour with white head and lace. Aroma is not much at all. Flavor is semi sweet malt with a light medium hop finish. Medium bodied with ok carbonation. A little lacking all round

Draft at brewery (summer 2013): Hazy amber-red hue. Thinnish malt flavors, though it had a nice bread crust element. Curiously fruity. Alcohol was kind of hot / fusel. Rind-like bitterness. OK beer.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Keg at the brewpub - Cabo. Noted as 7% but this doesn’t taste that strong. Pours clear gold, lightly effervescent with a foamy, white head. Probably one of the weaker efforts. A bit of diacetyl presence, some mellow pine, bread, hints of tangy citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Alright finish, just some bready malts and mild piney bitterness. So so.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Tap. Pours clear reddish-amber with a small tan head that laces well. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel, Flavor is the same, with medium sweetness and notes of pine. Finish is medium bitter.

From tap at the San Lucas location. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is pinewood hops and dense caramel. Roasted malty, bitter and solid hoppy flavoured.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Pours clear red, white head. Aroma has notes of some biscuit, caramel, touch of metallic/pine hops. Taste is similar, with biscuit, caramel, some metallic hops, and a weird finish. Not bad.

Draft at Baja Brewing. Labeled on menu as Peliroja Red. Better than most beer you can get in the Cabo area, but still insubstantial. No head

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Sampled at the brewpub. An amber colored beer with a nice light tan head. Good retention. Cloudy. It offers a pleasant aroma of lightly roasted malt and a splash of hop. Taste is hop dominated with a malty background. Finish is hop and fruit. It features nice bitterness and is surprisingly tart. Very flavorful. Enjoyable.
