Mucha gente peleó por esta preciada posesión. El "Green Card" por muchos años fue lo que muchos anhelaban obtener. Es por eso que pensamos que sería apropiado nombrar a nuestra más premiada cerveza de esta manera. Elaborada con 10% de alcohol con una senasión vicsosa y lúpulo que equilibra su enorme cuerpo, es esta una cerveza compleja que cambiará tu vida.

Last beer rating of 2012? Bottle. Clear amber color, tiny coca cola head. Aroma of toasted caramel. Taste is very sweet caramel and butterscotch. Not bad.

Aroma interesante. Granos en su máxima expresión, onviamente cebada! En cuanto al color, cerveza obscura con tonos rojizos y turbiedad imponente, cuerpo redondo. Carbonatación y corona de espuma prácticamente nulas. En boca, sabor completo, ligeramente amarga y densa. Al paladar, inicialmente se perciben ligeros sabores suaves, complejos y elegantes. Posteriormente las notas son totalmente a grano acompañadas de un ligero amargor que se percibe en la garganta por un largo tiempo, dejando lugar finalmente a notas alcohólicas, situación que no resulta extraña al beber una cerveza con 10%. En resúmen hablamos de una excelente cerveza Mexicana. Exquisita, fuerte, elegante y sabrosa. Alcohólica, turbia, sin embargo, exquisita!

Sabor amargo, clavo, salsa de soya. Disfrutandolo en un viernes por la noche en casa, ideal para el relax

22oz bomber on sale for $1.99. Ruby red-brown-burgundy..translucent and sort of shabby. Thin remnants of an oily head, soda-like fast rising carbonation bubbles. The aroma isn’t so offensive, big dark fruit and sugary alcohol notes. Hmm. Not impressed at all with the taste. Completely unrefined....I’ve got to assume they use malt extract. What a shabby Barleywine...friggin Mexis. Pretty much in your Eastern European malt extract disgusting high ABV beer category. Not even close.

Upon pour the drinker will be punched in the nose by caramel, prunes and varnish. Not quite opaque, and almost blood red. Way to sweet, makes my woman’s reisling taste like Punk IPA. Too further this theme, it is syrupy thick and sticky. Reminds me of that terrible Lithuanian Triple Bock I once had. (If you tried it, you’ll remember.) Naming a Mexican import Green Card is not a good idea, and it doesn’t get better from there. Imported by Elite Brands, Kalamazoo. I say deport it - to the ocean floor.

Poured in a snifter. Pours a dark amber color, pretty opaque, and very little head. Aroma smells like caramel syrup, smells like it will be very sweet. Very little hops can be detected. Taste is extremely sweet and only slightly bitter. All caramel malt and slightly darker malts. Where are the hops? Finish is fairly smooth, alcohol is fairly well hidden. Just not much going on here. Disappointing.

Scopey (8822) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Ken. It pours clear amber, with a thin beige head. The nose is pretty sweet, maple syrup, honey, cake and spice. The taste is tinned fruit (peach and nectarine), toffee, sweet apple and warming alcohol. Full body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Pretty smooth actually.Decent. Definitely the best Mexican beer I’ve had to date.

Bottle at CBC’s 1st Birthday Party. Thanks to Paul (I think!) for bringing this. The pour is deep amber with no head whatsoever. The nose is cherries and spiced xmas cake, marzipan and cheese. The taste is toffee, cherry and nutmeg spiciness. Some fermented brown bread. The body’s full, carbonation is soft. Overall, pretty good.

Bottle shared at Craft. Clear amber beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate with a little fine carbonation. Smooth sweet malts. Sweet toffee and cream. Trace of orange and dried fruits. A little aniseed in the finish. Pretty straight down the line barleywine but I quite liked the sweetness.
