"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."

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 (619) - 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 (2219) - 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.

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.

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.

Sweet agave non beer sweetness aroma. Really bad, maybe poisoned for the American beer. Brutal, way too sugary and sweet. Ouch.

The head is good, the body red-brown. It smells creamy, amber-malty. The taste is creamy, malty, but mild, later it is a little bit more intensive. Ok 11/10/10/9/12/10

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2013
330ml bottle from Lupe Pinto, Glasgow (£1.49):
Sweet malts and a light, sweet floral aroma with some caramel on top. Not very strong and quite basic but not a bad smell either.
Clear, light brown with a thin, foamy white head on top that is about a quarter centimetre tall and stays consistent.
Hop filled aroma with some floral notes and a touch of caramel from the nose, this is followed by some toasted biscuits and very light, sweet fruit flavours.
Thin and light smelling beer but an easy one to drink, there is a sweet, dry finish and carbonation is medium throughout.

Not a bad beer really, just not a great one either or all that exciting. There is a nice caramel aroma and this is present in the taste but other than that the beer is just a little bland and doesn’t have enough going for it to make you want to try it again.

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Shared 330 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5%. Reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Strong aroma of over-ripe raspberries, stale jam and dust. The flavour has notes of caramel, but is not as sweet as I feared. Drinks quite well, but unfortunately a little of the "stale jam" character of the aroma follows into the taste. Moderate hops in the finish.
