From a growler to a mug glass. I may have read the sign wrong, but it stated an ABV of 6% and that some lime or lime zest was added to this beer (I could be wrong). Appears a light amber color with minimal head, and smells pretty basic like honey cereal (honey nut cheerios, etc.). This is in line for the Mexican version of a Vienna lager; its honey-buttery notes are watered down to heighten throwback drinkability. I like, although it is typical for the sub-style.

On draft at 4 Hands. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thick creamy white head and a good bit of lace. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy up front and tropically fruity. Then the sweet malts come rolling through and don’t balance at all. This is a little bit of a mess. The flavor is messy. There is a hop and malt fight happening. It’s a little sharp and a really brightly carbonated with a lingering sweetness. Meh.

ON tap at the brewery. Pours slightly hazy amber color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. taste of a light malt sweetness, citrus and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, clean and flavorful. Quite nice.

Draft at 4 Hands. Pours a somewhat cloudy, slightly dull orange-amber with a small white head that settles into just a tiny ring. It’s exactly what you’d think - a Mexican-style Vienna lager with a splash of lime. Earthy and leafy notes, toast, mild spice, and a healthy dose of tart citrus. Light-bodied, with a light, thin, lightly tart mouthfeel. Crisp and clean. Perfectly formulated to pair with tacos.

Amber crisp. Kinda like a mexican amber beer. Lime. Corn. Reminds me of an amber dos equis. Not great but good for a mexican beer brewed for a mexican restaurant.

On tap at Mission Taco - Pours murky amber with an off-white head. The aroma is very malty with a nuttiness, some citrus and lager smoothness. Fairly rich overall. It has a smooth medium body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with nutty Vienna malt, light spice, orange zest, dull caramel and earthy / woodiness. The finish is spicy and has a nice little bite. Nicely done.

Draft at the brewery. Amber golden and hazed. Minimal foam. Not a classic amber. Nice fruity notes that include citrus. Nice little bitterness. Just a little lime and I expected more. Almost oats in the feel. Interesting stuff.

On tap at the brewery. It poured a light golden color with a white head. The aroma was of roasted malts, some light hops and grains. The taste was of malts with a bit of hop character in the background and some citrus hints. It left a bit of a tangy sensation in my mouth after each drink also. It had a very light mouthfeel. Very nice.

Pours copper from the tap with a thin off white head. Aroma is malt and lime. Mild carbonation in the mouth. Taste is barley, malt, and a ton of lime. It’s almost like a Mexican lager with a heck of a kick of lime. Pretty darn good.
