2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
To me, this was like a cross between an amber ale and an ESB. I didn’t pick up the pale ale notes. Everyone’s different though.
Weak ale with a kind of metallic hop flavour (yes it’s possible, you’ll understand if you try this beer). Mildly soapish. Finish was ESB all the way. Decepción.

Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, little to no tan head. Aroma really strange, dried fruit, strawberries. Body lively with a subtle lingering bitterness. Way different.

Surprising enough a Mexican beer that isn’t the same old taste that is a typical Mexican beer. The head that pours off this amber coloured beer is excellent. While the smell does have the tones of a Mexican beer the taste doesn’t follow suit. The beer has hints of a typical pale but with some hops added in, while it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Overall an excellent beer to try.

3/25/2010. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Citrus, malt, caramel and fruity aromas. Nice hoppy flavors, but a bit buttery. Still not bad at all.

My first was big butter, but the replacement wasn’t at all. Pours amber bodied, stable off white head. Moderate amber malts, grassy and citric hops, bit herbal, sweaty yeast not quite fermented long enough. Medium bitter for the style, nice drinkable palate. Aroma isn’t quite right, bit too much vegetable, but I do really like the palate. (Bottle from The Beer Box Cancun)

Slightly hazy darkish amber with good lace left down the side of the glass from the off-white head. Aromas of mellow fruitfulness - stewed apples, apricots and peaches. There was more volcanic hoppiness in the flavour profile and a gratifyingly bitter finish from good punchy hops. Just lovely.

Pours an orange red with pink hues. Beautiful. Aromas are bready and sweet with notes of citrus. Flavors are mostly bitter.. A touch of malt.. needs more. A bit thin and watery.

Mild and easygoing brew with a moderate citrus hop punch and mild toasted grain notes. Easy to sip with a bit of a bitterness on the finish. Balance is good and clean

Very cool label. Not bad for a pale ale. I would put the Chupacabra as a barleywine or imperial stout. Good citrus taste here but just not wow worthy. I preferred the Lookout blonde.

Couleur ambrée sombre avec un ÉNORME col beige qui ne rétréci pas. L’arôme de malt, un peu d’agrumes et un très peu de saveur sucré. D’abord, le goût est de malt un peu sucré, ensuite des houblon bien équilibré avec un amertume moyenne que rest en-bouche.
