750ml bottle from Treasure Island Foods, Chicago. Ther cork hit my ceiling as soon as I twisted off the wires. Pours a hazy golden color with a moderate white head an not much lacing. Smells of yeast, orange, banana, and cloves. Flavor is pretty much the same. Mouthfeel is almost creamy with little carbonation. Body is medium. An enjoyable beer I’m glad to have tried, but perhaps not worth the price.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow color wirh a slight cloudiness to it. Aroma is a little floral with a hint of fruityness to it. Taste is clean and the alcohol content is masked by the fruity aftertaste. Overall a clean beer with a little complexity to it.

Clear yellow with decent frosty white foam head. Good bitter aroma and decent bitter taste. Longer lasting bitter aftertaste. Nice beer for drinking in back yard while resting from longer drive with car. (Velp 201207)
