3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2012
draft. deep chestnut brown / red body. it’s a husky and slightly toasty red malt showcase: the toasted barley is crunchy and forward, it thankfully leans to the dry side, is kept very much in balance by a mild sweetness across the middle and ample American hop bitterness and fruitiness late. well-made.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2011
The Time Out Tavern in Escazú appears to be selling the hell out of this stuff. I was told by the owner that people are just looking for something different, i.e. in a color other than yellow, and that he could sell the heck out of a porter or stout if they made one. Does that mean the future is dark or bright or both? The Segua is physically attractive, with a mildly hoppy nose that was not quite as big as I wanted it to be. But it rarely is. The flavor is fairly balanced with a light malt sweetness before rolling into a no-nonsense hop-bitterness that lingers with a bit of resin on the tongue. Dry finish asks for another sip. It’s a little abrasive, actually, and maybe that’s just what these folks need.

Bottle: first beer on my trip to Costa Rica. having traveled in central America before I am shocked to see a craft beer. This has a nice hoppy bite to it but isn’t overpowering.
