rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Sampled in a 12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden brown. Has a decent head on it with big malty honey aroma coming out of it. Definitely the best brew from Mexico I have ever had. Great brew for what I was expecting

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2010
12 oz bottle. Mild funk with a fruitiness on the nose with traces of a metallic aroma. Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head. Caramel with honey and a tartness with hints of smoke. The flavors are all over the place. Not for me.

This beer has a clear medium gold pour with some faint red hues, gave a quick white bubbled head that lowers to a broken cover and ring, there was some nice lively effervescence, bubbles were flowing from the center and other areas in the glass, I found there was a minute bit of light brown sediment in the last few drops of beer out of the bottle and I saw some sediment in the little puddle of beer on the bottom of the bottle, there were mild aromas of malt and bread with a mild honey and bread sweetness, the nose on this beer is hardly there, faint herbal-grassy hops, mild dry malt flavor with faint bread, a little citrus, there is a hint of sweetness with each sip but a citrus sourness comes in to wipe away what little sweetness there was, this drink was dry on the palate, not much flavor here, thin mouth feel and sort of dry on the palate.

robertjm (842) - Albany, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Cinco de Mayo 2010 (the one day of the year I drink Mexican beer!). Pours nice foamy head, somewhat creamy looking. Lots of carbonation coating the sides of the glass. Very visible . Reminds me of alka seltzer. Orangy-red in color. Clear body. Aroma is sweet, kind of like, well....honey with some ginger in there too. Flavor definitely different that a typical Mexican beer you might get at the ballpark. Good hop backbone. Can certainly pick up the honey that’s been used. Fuller body than the typical lagers. Will definitely keep this brewery in mind when looking at Mexican beers in the future!

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 1, 2010
(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours clear (initially) light orange-amber with a small off-white head. A little cloudy deeper into bottle. Aroma of some malt-like qualities but hard to pinpoint - sort of caramel-like, sort of bread-like, sort of honey-like, but not really like anything. Mouthfeel a touch prickly and dry but fairly smooth. Taste is dull and papery, with some hints of caramel-honey finally emerging as it warms. Pass.

Amber pour with no head. Aroma of honey and wheat. Flavors of dish soap, piney and resinous hops, mild sugar, and a bitter finish.

Sdaniel90 (823) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle, 330ml. Pours a deep orange/copper colour with a small white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is of hop and carbonation, pretty poor. The taste is a nice honey sweetness complemented with great bitterness. Good.

Bottle. Rich amber beer. Sweet malt aroma with light honey. Malt and light fruit flavor with light honey and light hay. Medium bodied. Honey, hay, and light fruit lingers.

hayduke (4484) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
From a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Strykzone. This poured medium brown with a small light brown head. Nose of caramel malts and floral hops. Medium body and OK mouthfeel . The flavor is kind of bland with some light hop bitterness. The finish is somewhat sweet, maybe because of the honey. Decent brew.

thegreenrooster (3893) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pour is a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma is deffinatly a strong dose of honey mixed with some hop resin. Flavor is a big let down after that. Watery and bland with only a fraction of the honey i got in the aroma. Looks and smells great just not much after that.
