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.

bhensonb (11137) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (9730) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Draught at All Colorado Beer Festival. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (toasted grain, meal), light hops (grass), average yeast (sweat) with notes of apple. Light bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

On tap @ PPBC. Transparent, burnt orange appearance with little head retention. Caramel malty, toffee, mildly bitter, pretty sweet flavor. Carbonation is a bit low.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2009
bottle. clear amber, small head. body is excessively rough and caustic, harsh carbonation combined with a husky, stale bread crust/crumb character leaves this beer nearly undrinkable. mild flavor of sweet vienna and munich malt with low hop bitterness, it turns from somewhat sweet to soured/soggy bread when it warms with diacetyl/butter/metallic notes. not terrible but nothing i’d ever want to drink again.

Ernest (6232) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of bile, zucchini, and hair spray. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. What a bummer...as with the bottled Orale I just sampled, this is tainted with some really nasty aromas (chemical, vegetal, vomit-like) that literally makes my stomach flip every time I take a sniff. They’re hidden slightly better under the malt here than in the Orale, but they’re impossible to escape. That these off notes appear in both beers means the Orale wasn’t a fluke (and no, it’s not my glassware). So sad when this happens...it was reasonably drinkable at GABF last year. Truly scary in bottled form though. Hope they fix the issues.

blutt59 (6021) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
bottle, amber color with thin foam , tried to make this more bready, malty and succeeded pretty well, has a faint green celery note but not a bad vienna
