COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
"It is a deep coppery-red in colour and is very aromatic with intensely floral hops and a lightly sweet and malty flavour. This full-bodied ale offers a very pleasant high bitterness, with smooth sweet malt character, creamy head with good carbonation, and with an excellent bittersweet finish."

maneliquor (3283) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle at El Publico. I honestly fail to see what the difference is between this and carlton draught. Both have a distinct shitty malt with that cloying metallic bitterness to finish. Definitely not good But then it does go with Mexican on a hot day

jaghana (4154) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la bière. A clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is toasted caramel and cassonade. Aroma is on toasted caramel, strange paper / rubber notes, peppery hops, some bitterness, little pine notes, burnt caramel, this beer a bit messy.

Percy0103 (203) - MEXICO - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle 330ml. A brown reddish beer with a big creamy head. Aroma is faint and I couldn’t distinguish it. Taste is bitter, especially at the end. A good beer overall and not very expensive.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle @ Head of Steam, Huddersfield. Wasn’t expecting to find Mexican beer at Huddersfield train station, so naturally I had to try it. Presents some fruity hops with a malty flapjack bitterness.. not bad really. And made me want to buy a flapjack.

gegwilson (1472) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Quite a dark amber colour with a fading white head. The taste is mostly malty with a hint of caramel sweetness. A slightly bitter finish. Pretty average, but drinkable enough.

jmagnus87 (2732) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with minimal head. Aroma of caramel malt and a very light hint of hops. Taste is lightly bitter with caramel and honey. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long, bitter finish. Overall, not bad. Better than i though it would be.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle shared by jmagnus87...thanks Josh! Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Nose is honey sweet, lots of malt--really just tons of honey. Taste is sweet honey and malt, bready with a bit of graininess. Slick and thinnish.

cbfobes (2348) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12oz bottle shared at local tasting, can’t remember who brought this, but thanks. Pours a clear amber with a thin head, the aroma and flavor was pretty much the same, nothing, a little sweet in the finish, ugh.
