On tap at The Red in Santa Cruz. Poured into a pint glass. Clear gold with thick but watery white head. Aroma is earthy with some toasty grains. Flavors of dough with a touch of toffee. Some vague noble hoppiness. Thin and well-carbonated. Pretty boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT. Pours a slightly darker than expected- deep golden copper- for a pale mexican lager- thin head. Aroma is straight up mexican lager- nice spicy slight metallicy- (in a good way) modelo yeast character- doughy but then it gets cut off and turns more crisp and herbal with hops. Flavor has a light pils malt backbone- slight herbal and spicy hop sand a really refreshing mexican yeast bite in the end. This and the Roso make me really interested to try using the modelo yeast for future lagers.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Amber color with a decent white head (and a lime slice). The aroma is mostly lime slice! Medium body with mild foamy carbonation. Flavor is mild near caramel with a little grassy hop. Very interesting lager. Quite drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Gate. Hazy amber beer with a very creamy white head. Aroma is lightly malty and sweet. There is a kiss of soft crusty breadiness as well with a touch of earthiness. A little bit of herbal character and even a touch of DMS. Kind of a strange brew really. It really does resemble modelo, which is kind of cool, but I could think of much better beers to clone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap pours light gold with a small white head. Clean lager nose, a touch sulfery and with just the softest notes of malt and hops. Very clean tasting, soft and simple, but is the sort of bear you wish just had a nice crisp hop finish to it. Instead just balanced and unexciting, but not meant to be. Replicated a clean Mexican lager but slightly better, but I’m not going to get too excited about it.

Exactly as expected. It is a craft beer version of a Mexican lager (Corona, etc.) It might be the best Mexican lager I have had, but it still wasn’t worth getting excited about.
