2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark caramel color pouring with a small head that disappears before the first sip. Despite the off-putting appearance and the the fact there’s practically no aroma at first a spicy syrupy barely aroma develops as the beer warms. The initial taste isn’t all that bad save for the metallic finish. The flavor is sort of a lot of nothing. It’s there but has no defining character. In the end, watery appearance and no lacing leave mixed feelings. Drink this is you want satiety without the offensiveness of american pale macros.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, brownish, amber with a tiny sheen of beige bubbles that’s completely gone in a flash. Aroma of some caramel, but really not much. Not much taste in there either; basically a relatively character-less beer with some light added flavors. Light bodied and thin.

Bouteilles 325 ml. 4.5%. Bue à Playa Del Carmen. Couleur ambrée, mousse blanche. Une autre belle découverte...une alternative aux pale lager Mexicaines. Arôme de malt. En bouche, un peu d’herbes, douce. Finale avec un peu de houblon. Très bonne.

This beer is definitely my favorite mexican draft. Unfortunately you have to drive across the border to get a taste of this beer. Its like a Dos XX Ambar and a Negra Modelo mated and had a smooth easy on the palate and absolutely no "afterbite" beer. If you happen to bring some back to the states I highly recommend buying a Caguama "large bottle" because it seems to hold taste better than the 12oz bottles. You can literally sit down and drink pitcher after pitcher of this stuff and not feel your stomach about to explode or a numb mouth because of the Hoppy bitterness ale’s will leave behind. Head south of the border and enjoy an "Oktoberfest" tasting lager and taste the smooth caramel aroma that will make your palate dance...
