3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received via trade with bluesnbarbq. Muchas gracias mi hermano!! A nice beer, super easy to drink. Reminds me in some ways of what a quality Negro Modelo might be like if it wasn’t made on a mass scale. Aroma is kinda like a salted caramel chew, light fruit and dried golden raisins. Apart from the drinkability of this beer, the flavor was the best part. Lightly roasted, subtle chocolate notes and really nicely balanced with a light bitter finish. Nice!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Yazoo, like chewing on a loaf of bread, very malty and touch of sweetness, but not enough to kill through the breadiness of the beer. I can’t find the noble hops but thats no surprise. not a great beer but definitely drinkable

"courtesy of bluesandbarbq - a nice bready toasted aroma greets me upon opening and during the pour. looks like a Negro Modelo or Newcastle. Not a very complex aroma, but pleasantly malty. mouthfeel is thin but smooth. taste is more complex with toasted malt, slight chocolate and sweetness, with a touch of bitter hops in the finish. pretty good for the style, but nothing great

Draft at the Nashville airport. Pours brown with a beige head. Toasted and bready malts, light chocolate malts, and light earthy notes. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark amber with a lacy head that dissipates way too fast. Good carbonation. Faint aroma. A thin beer with more of a malt taste than hop. It’s OK but not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a brownish color with aromas of malt, toast, and light earth. Flavors are the same with some light sweetness thrown in. Not bad just not my style of beer. The ks John for the share.

Pours a caramel brown color with a bready malt aroma. Taste is mild, and almost too thin. A good tinge of sweet flavor, a slight mix of chocolate and molasses. A nice mixture and amount of malt and hops. A decent beer I enjoyed in Nashville Tenn.

12 oz bottle, dated about 1 year ago, served in a goblet
A; looks like cola, with excellent clarity, but without visible carbonation.
S: caramel and chocolate malts, with an exceptional contribution from the latter. Also a faint spicy/herbal note.
T: malty, as expected. A cross between a Mexican brown and an American Brown Ale. Clean finish.
M: (Intentionally) Thin body; light carbonation.
O: Recommended for fans of brown and amber ales. Less malty but a bit more hoppy than Fat Tire.
