COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Manana is a Mexican-style amber lager (cerveza oscura). The malty, bold flavor of this beer recalls the European roots of Mexico’s great brewing history. Smooth and rich, Manana is superb, whether enjoyed alone or with your favorite Mexican food.

Despite winning awards, this beer is a total miss for me by style. No sweetness in the beginning, no body to speak of...a lingering finish...all things that are the opposite of what should be there. Pass on this one.

Bottle. A Mexican beer made in Colorado? Color is dark yellow. Good head, not much lace. Watery taste. Watery aroma.

Del Norte Manana has a relatively thin, cream-colored, soapy head and a very cloudy, opaque, amber appearance, in which one can observe some tiny bubble streams. Thin, yet decent, lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet dark-roasted malt and even some slightly turned fruit. Brown bread is detected in the taste and smell, and one also picks up chocolate powder, figs, and caramel in the flavor. There is a strong chocolate back-taste to this beer (actually, stronger than maybe any beer I’ve ever sampled). Hop bitterness is noticeable, but mild. Mouthfeel is medium, and Del Norte Manana finishes crisp, semi-dry, refreshing, and enjoyable. Overall, this is a real winner, and I rate it most excellent! RJT

12 oz. Clear brown-copper with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is toffee, dry grass and a touch of dark cherry. Taste is the same mix, plus some earthy chocolate and roast. Light-medium body is well balanced, has low carbonation and is pretty drinkable.

Suttree (5134) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Orangey copper, thin spongy head. Smells like cracker jacks - Corn, caramel and some nutty aromas. Taste is bready, toasty, caramel, and a dryish finish. Maybe it’s better with spicy food...

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours clear copper with a few beige bubbles. Light caramel aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is definitely roast malt with some very light noble hop. I think it would stand up to most Viennas. There’s a herb/yeast/spice complement that’s fairly pleasant. Still, it’s hardly bitter at all.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma of tosdyed grain and band-aid. Flavor not much different, hint of sweetness and very faint mild hop. Light, watery body with high carbonation. Overall, wouldn’t turn down if offered to me.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2012
(Draught) Pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, and soap. Flavor of biscuit, grass, butter, caramel, and citrus.

Amber, very nice head. Aroma is a bit of rind of lime. Taste is lots of roasted malt and not very much bitterness. There’s some toast or crusty, earthiness going on. I’m enjoying this brew as I was expecting something more industrial.
