"BR’s dark mexican lager is another solid effort. usually an unimpressive style, this one was smooth and sweet. caramel in the nose and flavor, with just enough hops to provide a delicate balance. a nice brown ale."

Draft sample @ brewery during RBSG09. Pours a clear dark brown with a large off white head. The aroma. which was very light, was roasted malt with mildly sweet caramel and a touch of cocoa. The flavor was much of the same; roasted malts, caramel and cocoa. Nothing really stood out with this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub during RBSG09. Dark brown with a creamy, off-white head. smooth chocolatey, malty aroma. Sweet, dusty, powdery chocolate flavor with almost no hops. Light bodied and a little sticky. This was ok, although a little to sweet, be it for lack of hops or under-attenuation.
