3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Whole Foods - Chandler. Aroma of medium malt, light caramel, some pine resin, and a hint of prunes. Pours dark ruby-amber with a brief white head. Oddly slightly sour caramel taste with a musty malt flavor, light toasted bread, and an astringent resin note. A creamy touch of spoiled milk emerges late. Medium body, slightly creamy texture. Overall, I find it rather mediocre; it doesn’t really stay within the cream ale style.

Tap at the brewery - San Diego. ABV noted at 6.3%. Pours lightly hazy brown with a frothy white head. Bready, doughy brown bread in the nose with subtle toast. Medium sweet flavor with lightly toasted bread, some dough, mild earth, slight berries, toasty toffee. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Sweet finish with subtle toasted leaf bitterness, toasty brown bread, light toffee and brown sugar. Very tasty, well balanced stuff.

Weak hops aroma. Gorgeous copper color. Mild and creamy with a light hops and lemon aftertaste. Light mouthfeel. Good compliment to fish and chips.

I don’t drink a ton of cream ale, but this one is very good. Nice malty feel, apparently this style was exported from Austria to Mexico. Think Negro Modelo, but GOOD.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at tasting room. Pours a darker amber colour with a small off white head. Aroma is of bread malts and very slight floral hops. Not too sweet really with a fairly mild bitterness as well; nice light flavour to it. Light-medium body, creamy smooth mouth feel, and soft carbonation. A very enjoyable vienna.

Pours a lovely amber color. Like the Claritas, the aroma is minimal but the taste is nice and bright. A bit of caramel notes. This would be really great with Mexican food.
