Inspired by “that one time in Mexico,” Amigo Grande embodies a certain south-of-the-border style. A bit bigger and a bit friendlier than most, this refreshing Mexican Lager is the hidden beach of Big Wood Brewery and is the only wingman you’ll need in the summer sun when the living is easy and the lakes are calling.

An approachable, tasty lager perfect for summer. There's a lovely biscuit-like malt finish after the wave of clean lager flavor... Quite tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a straw gold color with a lasting tight frothy white head. Aroma has sweet grain corn pretty straight forward. Taste is more sweet grain corn little off putting bitterness. Palate is thin and chalky gritty aftertaste. Very blah.

Pint can pours a hazy golden/orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of doughy yeast and sweet malt. Taste of cheap malt sweetness and an unpleasant bitterness.

Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. Mild, but tasty. This is a contender for a good hot summer day beer.

Tap at new bohemia. Gold with small white head. Nice aroma of sweetness and light grain. Sweet grain taste, light with a little bit of bite. Good for a hot day. Better than expected.

1/28/15. 16oz can from Happy’s in Cedar Falls. Really starting to regret buying 4 Big Wood cans. Yellow pour with a small off-white head that sizzles away, basically no lacing. Nasty aroma - corn, corn chips, huge apple, even fusel... the flavor is sadly the same, corn, tons of apple, fusel... if this was handed to me blind, I might think it was malt liquor, and bad malt liquor at that. Gross.

Can - big foamy head, dark straw color, sweet corn and wheat aroma and flavor, fair earthy hop finish, mild fruit notes - not bad for what it is, definitely better than a Corona or something. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The brewer is asking bars to serve this with lime. Lightly hazed gold. White bread, hay and grist aroma; the citric acid is helpful. Crystal clear flavor with no off colors. Airy pepper notes, honeyed cereals, and dry grass, again aided by the citrus addition. Sparkly and open palate. This is a well executed, clean and simple example; a laudable accomplishment.

Ratman197 (11520) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2014
16 oz can poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, light straw and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread and light earthiness with a crisp dry finish.

Trev (2019) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2014
Can: gold pour, thick pillowy white head. Aroma is grainy cereal, cornflake, light floral hop. Flavour is light to medium malt sweetness, more grassy than floral on the palate. Almost Pilsner like hop with a less biscuity more grainy maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
