2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.
