COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true creation of innovative Chicano culture, these masterpieces with humble beginnings have captured the attention of automotive fans worldwide as only Mexican creativity can. In tribute we created Low-RYE-der a double rye beer with a strong malt profile and a bunch of hops.

Located on the clearance shelf at Party Source this was a decent release. Normally I’ve stayed away from Mexican breweries assuming they were all a hot mess. This one wasn’t great but for $3.99 a bomber you could do far worse with an inept or inexperienced local alternative.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramel orange base is soon overtaken by surges of starchy white head. Orange cream, malts, and mild hops give it some presence. However it feels a bit like a wallflower compared to other rye influenced beers in the same spirit.

Flavor / Palate - Nutty caramel, fresh hops, and a dash of resin captivate the palate for a few minutes. After a while though it begins to take on this feel that something is missing. Flashes of brilliance are not enough to salvage what is ultimately a brewery to scroll past. With so many other options this is only worth a look if you need a cheap Mexican tick that isn’t Corona.

4.75oz taster served at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg - recent rye ale. Good rye at the back, not much forward.

Light body nice lacing. Hoppy aroma. Tropical fruit and hops and a bit of booze flavour. Tastes a bit like Canadian rye whiskey.

What a great beer. Pours a nice jazzy orange with sweet malty aromas. Tastes like Christmas oranges and rye. This is really good.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with hints of caramel. Taste is a herbal, spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Certainly enjoyable and recommended.

Fine and strong rye flavor. Red amber color. One of best Mexican beers that I have tried---and in a brown rather than ’sellout’ clear bottle!

Chudwick (1780) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2013
bomber - pours unfiltered orange/amber with one inch of beige head which mostly lasts and thin lacing. Nose is rye, cheese, and citrus. Fairly bitter with moderate sweetness. Metallic aftertaste. Would have been better when fresher. a little boozy on the gums. I got what I expected. I’m glad I tried it because it reaffirms that there are some good beers from Mexico.

Rather basic beer. Some rye, an honorium to hops, and light beige colour with a little head. A small rye aroma. So-so drinkability.Thanks Chris.
