Bottle from Hy Vee in South Sioux City, NE. Deep amber pour with a large initial head that fades quickly. Caramel malts and stale hops - getting a bit of cardboard. Getting some tomato in the taste as well. This pretty much sucks, but the label is cool.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Gold, with a little haze. Thin, sticky, white head. Toffee malt. A little butter. Taste is dry, with some spice. Palate is thin, and a bit sickly. Finishes with a little metallic bitterness. And then I realise I’ve rated the wrong beer...

"1st of 5. dig the labels, not the beer. Likely suffers from age, as all their hoppy style brews kinda sucked, but...DATE YOUR DAMN BOTTLES! Light carmel and bready malts and a non-descipt rather stale bitterness. Meh."

Lemke10 (793) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
This pours a semi-clear, dark amber color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is very malty. The taste is smooth and strong with malt and caramel flavors. The finish is a little spicy mixed with sweetness.

It's an amber. Exactly what you would expect from a craft Amber but a bit sweet. Do I still need more characters? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This isn’t remarkable but it isn’t bad either. It is a clear brown amber in the glass and has a foamy had that leaves lace in a nice lattice. This is one of those more malt centric ambers that kind of reminds me of an Americanized take on ESB or something. It has earthy, spicy hops and a good balance of nutty malt to back it up. This is a relatively dry beer and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It finishes with a touch of malty sweetness and just a hint of bitterness. I honestly wasn’t exactly expecting the approx from this beer but it is balanced, clean and overall quite solid.

Percy0103 (166) - MEXICO - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A clear orange beer with a big frothy head. It has a very fresh aroma, mainly of grapefruit, orange, citrics and some floral hops. Taste is bitter, maybe too much at the end. Lackluster finish; besides the bitterness, there is not much going on. Almost no carbonation and astringency.

Sdaniel90 (372) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. Clear brown/amber with a frothy offwhite head. Subtle sweet, roasted malt aroma, with hints of cereal, spices and some distant hoppiness. Medium bodied and flat. Deep toasted character with a subtle bitterness, but goes watery at the finish.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from January 2014. Finally a decent beer to come out of Mexico that isn’t a poor pale lager.
