3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle.
A - Clear dark copper color. Fairly large, foamy, bubbly, off-white head. Disappears pretty fast with almost no lace left.
S - Toasted nutty/grainy malt. Sweet aroma with a touch of toffee and caramel. Hints of grassy hops and a minerally aroma.
T - Similar to the nose with a touch more caramel/toffee sweetness. Initially there is a pretty strong grainy taste that is present throughout. Just a faint hint of hop, primarily grassy flavors. Touch of fruitiness that only adds to the sweetness at the finish.
M - Light body with average carbonation. A sweet, dry feel on the finish.
D - A little too sweet and drying to be all that drinkable. Not really balanced, just too sweet and malty, but not in an enjoyable way.
Notes: Nothing special here. Plenty of grainy and sweet malt. About what I was expecting (maybe a little better given this is a German style from Mexico). Not horrible, but I probably wouldn’t search for this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby with a thinning, off-white ring. Sweet, noseable aroma of dried fruits, muscovado and honey. Suggestions of cake, figs, liquorice and chocolate raisin that wouldn’t be out of place in a considerably stronger beer (barley wine, doppelbock or dubbel) of some quality. Having plumbed the depths of industrial Mediterranean ’dark beers’, this was a pleasant surprise when I really wasn’t expecting one.

Had this @ 3 Monkeys and based on the label thought it was a beer you’d buy @ Aldi. Nothing going on here, slight malts, tinge of bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not as horrible as you might expect from a COMPLETELY CLEAR BOTTLE. I mean, WTF is up with this? Could brown bottles be that much more? More like a Vienna, this is a nice sweet, low alcohol beer that goes well with Mexican food. Pours brown with tan head, slight skunk smell, but some malt sugars in the nose. Has a banana like finish.
