2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First pour of a brand new batch, on tap. The aroma was weak, but I don’t think I should penalize it for that. The color was a muddy brown, with a beige head, and that’s after I let it settle for a while. Depending on how you translate it, tostada can mean toasted, and they aren’t joking. It was smoky and it had a very bitter aftertaste. I’d like to try this when it’s had a little bit more time to age and settle.

The same, but alittle better, very dark in colour, almost like a Leon, from MExico, but flavorless at all.
