2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught) clearish deep amber with no head. Nose of lactose, sugar, caramel, and very sweet smelling, almost like wort. Taste of caramel, lactose, brown sugar, alcohol. The beer is flat as a pancake, no carbonation at all and way too sweet. Reminds me a bit of a kvass.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the Draught House during the 43rd Anniversary party.
The beer pours a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with a lot of toffee and caramel notes, as well as a ton of sugar. There is little to no hop profile in the aroma.
The flavor is also very sweet and unbalanced. I get a lot of toffee and caramel with not too much else coming through other than a little bit of grain.
Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
The brewery’s own website said they modeled this after Negra Modelo so I don’t think it was brewed with the beer geek in mind. I don’t know how it compares to their target, but I didn’t find it very good.

Pours a light brown with no head. The taste was extremely sweet with little hop character. Tastes like fizzy barley tea with a little caramel and cane syrupy dessert notes.

Dark lager. Sweet syrupy aroma. Totally desert smelling. Small head. Small hop bite. Sure to please college daisies all across American campuses. Now on for the regional distribution. Some beers make me ask why. So sweet! Its beer. My goodness!
