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

A very fresh, bright clean crisp plain malt aroma. Maybe some edges of sugar. Pour of plain gold, with a slick edge of white. Flavor is again fresh and clean sweet malt, with a lot of white grape vinous character and real deal of fresh grainy character. Not slightly skunky, off or unclean. Finishes with a long clean sugar metamorphosis. Best pale lager, no questions.

I had this on draft a few times, usually at Pizza Port San Clemente. They tell me that it’s a favorite of the local military, as a substitute for BMC... it’s yellow, not much aroma, the flavor is benign. designed & implemented as an ice cold quench thirster.

Tap @ the brewery. If I ever need to get a keg to "please the masses".....this will be the one. A clear golden yellow pour, medium sized head. Nose of light hops, grain and some yeast. The best pale lager I’ve had to date!.

RBSG 2008. Aside from a flashback to that damn Amigo car commercials with that annoying song this wasn’t that bad. Pours gold, very clear, with a small white head. Balanced session lager, doughy in the malts, a touch grainy, earthy hops with a light spicy touch to them.

San Clemente: Yikes! A "mexican lager"? That doesn't sound too promising. However, my concerns were dispelled upon sipping this pleasant lager that's full enough in flavor and is also lightly bittered, unlike its Mexican brethren. Gracias, amigos.

(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.

Bottle. A golden color with a diminished white head. The dusty, wet basement, cereal aroma and flavors are always a little more robust and subtle in craft brew bad lagers but evident nonethelss. Smooth and as expected.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2004
This brew pours with a very, very pale yellow body topped by a thick white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, malty and grainy with grassy hop notes. The flavor is slightly sweet yet well balanced with bitterness, grainy and grassy. Light bodied, smooth yet dry.

Ktwse (2321) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2013
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.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 On tap at RBSG at Lost Abbey. Pours a light copper color with a small off-white head. Aromas of lightly roasted barley and bready yeast. Tasted of malted grain and molasses. The mouthfeel was light and a bit astringent. Finish was short and dry. Overall: A very sessionable pale lager. Very tasty.
