3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours ruddy dark amber with a very transient head. Moderate malty aroma. Little hop noticeable. Med + body. Flavor is malty in a lightly roasty way. Could pass for Oktoberfest. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s moderately bitter. Could do for a session beer.

8/20/14. Super random tick during a VORLAUF meeting thanks to Bill as I recall! Light, clear amber pour with a small frothy khaki head. Plain aroma, husky malts, light caramel, corn and oxidation, corn chips. Plain flavor, not awful, not great, light caramel, some floral aspects, corn chips. Eh.

Bottle. Handsome amber with white topper. Mild aroma corn, paper and musk. Taste is clean and light. A bit sweet. Light aspartame on close. Better than most bodega beers in Mexico.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of a typical brown ale malt aroma. Appearance is an appealing copper brown body but not spectacular. Flavour is watery malt, like it’s trying to be a dark beer for people who don’t like dark beers. Weak on the mouth. It is not great at what it does.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow pour with white head. Corn, and light oxidation on the nose. Flat paper, floral hops, and oxidation on the flavor. Light bodied and fizzy. Bad when the high light of a beer is less oxidation that you expected.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, nuts, husks, caramel). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Almost odorless, just some crude malt really. This brewery is still clearly better than Modelo, though. I freely admit to having consumed a sixer of Bohemia mindlessly by the pool/beach during this vacation...one of the few Mexi-macros that is well balanced, not too horribly husky/dirty, and actually has clear hop aroma.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Schmik’s retirement. A darker brown color pour than I expected. A really nice aroma with a good maltiness. The flavor is where this beer came off the trails. It had a weird hint of vinyl or nylon.

Bottle. Lager style, but there are many better Mexican beers out there. Very watered down, nothing special.
