750ml bottle, shared by jcwattsrugger. I have to agree with John. The best beer of an afternoon of drinking on my patio. Pours a hazy orange gold with a finger of off white head. There’s a lot going on here. Aroma is rife with wood notes, lime, citrus and a good whiff of alcohol. Tequila is more obvious in the flavor. As the beer warmed a bit, you would have thought you were drinking a Margarita w/lime. I don’t know what cumin is, but I’m sure it’s in there. Palate was fairly modest with a bit of bitterness. Very nice, very nice indeed.

PMgep (210) - Lund, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2015
Old rating from CBC2012. This was not pleasant for me at all, the tequila took over everything and made it really bad. Might need to revisit this one but back then it was not my thing at all.

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Draught@CBC2015. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, mild nectar, alcohol and some wooden notes. Flavour is quite similar, but has the alcohol coming in quite strongly, which makes it a bit boozy.

Had it on tap at CBC 2015. I liked it pretty much. The different flavors worked out really nice and the beer was balanced and easy to drink.
