Amigo Lager is a thirst-quenching Mexican lager traditionally served with a lime. A tribute to the beers of Mexico. Salut!

Light gold color. Aroma is neutral. A mild “Mexican Lager”. Not much flavor. Mild malts and hops. Well balanced and smooth. But… It’s OK for a mild flavored beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slight bitter.

(En fût à la brasserie): Un liquide singulier mais avec pleins de qualités comme la carbonatation, composition des céréales, fraîcheur des houblons et hauteur de la buvabilité.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear bright gold with a thick off white head. Tastes like sweet corn, bready malt, and very light citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, bready malt, and light citrus.

Tap @ Carlsbad: Clear pale yellow. Sweet malt and corn in both the aroma and flavor. Clean on the finish. Drinkable. COuld be very good if you like the style.

Last impressions first, this is a poor example of a Mexican Lager; at least I was expecting something close to water, with overtones of corn, and perhaps even some authentic skunk. This beer did not come close. Instead I found a nicely hoppy beer that had a solid backdrop of clean, cereal grain, malt character. It did hit the crispness of a Mexican Lager, but the crispness was contributed by a solid hop biting bitterness in the finish that is quite atypical of it’s namesake beers. The body was also not light and watery enought; it was still light, yet had a nice malty fullness that just kisses the palate enough to let the clean malt character linger on a bit. The hop character leans towards grassy herbal notes, but does seem to have a hint of lemon grass to it as well.

All in all a failure from the cloning of a Mexican Lager aspect. Thank goodness though, because instead we have a nice, easy drinking, hot-weather refresher. I would definitely forgo the recommendation for a lime, this beer has enough malt and hop character to stand on its own two feet.

Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of light bread and grass, not much else. Taste is a different story, rich sweet honey with light malt bitterness. Light body with average carbonation.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at Downtown Johnny Brown’s in SD. Rich gold with a white head. Deceptively thick beer for the color. This tastes very wheaty to me! While this is not outstanding, I find it to be very good for a "mexican" beer.

On draft at the Carlsbad Pizza Port; very good for the style. Classic pale lager in color and aroma (not much). Flavor was sweet malt and grain/grass/hops. Surprising beer from them.
