22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is mainly sweet and sugary with a bit of floral and a bit of caramel maltiness present. The honey is difficult to detect. Transparent copper-orange body that has a really nice slightly off-white head that lingers. Grainy, malty start with roasted notes present. Becomes quite dry and quite bitter. The honey really makes this a dry and somewhat bitter beer. There is a bit of a harsh medicinal bitterness towards the end. Nevertheless, this is a huge step up from any Mexican beer that I have had.

Beer pour with a good head, good retention, and a standard lace job. The color is a deep golden amber. The aroma is very effective in making it’s point. This thing wreaks of honey and I mean REAL honey and a tad bit of spice. Medium nectar weight with good carbonation. Loads of honey twisted into a chunky malt backbone. A little spice comes out and then a superb bittering component kicks in balancing it all out on the finish. I really didn’t want to drink this whole 12oz bottle but it really is the best honey beer I’ve ever had. Needless to say I drank it. Great job on this one. I drank this at 55F.

12 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors; Nose of light flowery-piney hops and nuttiness; copper with a medium off-white head; flavor has medium hop bitterness, lemon, and some light caramel malt! Beats the hell out of Corona et al.

It has an excellent flavor, the honey aftertaste its quite good, its a bit light but compared to many mexican "aguapiñas" beers it’s delicious!

Not that good a beer.. i guess they are trying to sell to a Mexican market that just cant be educated on real beer. Typical light tasting, force carbonated light ale.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottled. Pale amber with a large white head. Honey and just a hint of hops and malt in the nose. Lightly hopped, with a honey, bread and slightly sweet/citrus finish. A rounder, more complex, balanced taste than Corona, Pacifico and their ilk, but should also appeal to the lime-wedge-in-your-beer crowd.
