0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Thanks to rfernandez for the sample. Calavera has great marketing, concepts, designs, digital media, etc. Beers a avg to weak, the pale ale is one dimensional, lacks character, body and taste. Keep the design, re-do the recipe.
Aroma: floral, sweet, citrus
Appearance: orange, hazy, white foam, no head
Taste: medium bitterness, cirus, little hoppy
Palate: light body, thin feel, average carbonation, luttonm (6763) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle in Mexico City. Ugly still brown-orange body, basically no head. Fruit and vegetable nose, profound DMS. Creamy, slick, astringent body. Pretty horrible. Heavy, no character, no semblance of an american pale ale in flavor nor body. Profoundly odd, two-sip drain pour. Conceivably this is an unforgivably old bottle from this fancy grocery store, but without a bottle date I couldn’t say. wombat23 (1787) - Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy bronze color with a white head and losts of floating sediment. Aroma is light malt and citrus. Taste is light malt, citrus, and caramel. Finish is quite messy. darbeer75 (991) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Aroma: light apple juice and bready aroma; Appearance: hazy orange pour with lots of particulates suspended; unusual for a pale ale; Taste: also very unusual for a pale ale, almost more like a belgian; Palate: medium body with long, slightly sweet and spicy finish; Overall: not as bad as rating would suggest but still quite odd. Would not get again. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2015
I haven’t poured a beer this annoying since I started rating belgians half a decade ago. It pours half hazy yellow, and half white foam. Very frothy and empty. Tons of sediment precipitates out of the head when you finish the pout. I almost don’t want to drink it because its not a belgian but an APA? Is this even safe? The beer looks like a bubble factory in the glass. There is som much cavitation created off the internal sediment. WTF? The aroma is caramel. The tastes is caramel and warm paper. I wonder if our American made "mexican lagers" are as bad as this mexican made "American pale ale" is to them.

Bottle in Mexico City-- Pours hazy pale amber with thick frothy white heady. Nose is . Aromas is really soapy, some pine notes. Foamy texture, medium carbonation. Medium dry bitter finish. Not that drinkable.

bottle, medium bodied orange pour, sweet malts, earthy hops, wet cardboard. decent but needs work degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a high, mixed-grain, white head. Nose is very light and mostly lager-like; orange, bready, biscuity, and a little spice. Sweet on the front with a little hops bitterness; the sweetness is a little saccharine, and there’s not a lot of sharpness or cleanness to it. It’s rather murky, and much more blonde ale than pale ale. Finish is long and candied. Not very impressive. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Hazy light amber. Lots of cascade in the nose. Fruity, yeasty basic pale ale.
