COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second in our ‘Derailed Series’, Mexican Honey is an Imperial Mexican Lager brewed with rare Mexican Orange Flower honey. Effervescent aromas of citrus and honeycomb leap out and boogie atop a crisp, pale yellow body with slight hints of cracker and toast.

Really solid brew, doesn’t have much honey aspect but it is a sweet and orangey impreial lager. Not sure what the ale part of its name represents.

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a white head. Lots of honey and cracker in this one. Slight booziness adds a bit of intrigue. Pretty cool brew.

Draft at indeed during RBSG. From notes. Honey wheat bread with a decent dose of orange citrus. Really digging this one. Wish I could get more.

On tap at brewery. Pours a gold yellow with minimal head and an aroma of sweetness with subtle honey bread and malt. Taste is smooth honey malt little sweet bread and a warm finish. Palate is slick and warming. Nice brew.

Stine (1581) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Clean, blonde, fizzy. Menthol, chlorine and chamomile notes, airy and strange. Fresh leaves, lavender, crystalline sugar, cooling herbs. Oxygen exposure reveals the canned corn sweetness with a little time.

Basic doughy lager taste, and quite clean with very little happening. Low fusel flavors and low trash, weed compost flavors; how these are avoided when there is so little body-building flavor to find amidst such high alcohol is confusing. Light corn like sweetness throughout, herbal qualities less present; honey finds its place in the distant finish with a floral sweetness.

Palate somehow crisp; very gentle slickness midway through, finishing only mildly dirty. The concept here is no less misguided than any other imperialization of a low gravity style, but this crisply rendered version is more acceptable than most; a flavorful beer it is not, a hot mess it is not.
