Light amber body white head, some lacing. Sweet malty grainy aroma. Taste is not much, sweet grains, a touch of bitter hops, but really not much going on here. Not even a lot of honey. Mediocre but drinkable.

Smells of honey and hops. Appearance is white frothy 1 finger head that quickly dissapates. Little lacing with nice amber brown colour. Taste is mildly sweet and mildly bitter. Enjoyed it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pleasant amber. Thin head. Very mild aroma of corn, wheat, I feel a touch of honey but it might be because I’m staring at the bottle. Tastes light, grassy, corn with a distinct very slightly sweet aftertaste of honey. It’s alright, easy to drink. Not particularly complex or really distinct but that slightly sweet aftertaste is appealing. Seems in line with a macrobrew, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Bottle to stange glass
Aroma of wheat and grass and something sweet, but not necessarily honey. Golden amber colour with a thin creamy light tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Taste is light syrup up front, with a tail of malt and light bitterness. It’s pretty innocuous.

Pours a clear copper with a medium sized white head that settles but leaves a decent amount of spots of lace. Aroma is sweet honey notes, malty, caramel, mild fruity esters and grass. Flavour is malty, honey notes, caramel, grassy and a very mild bitterness. Not really anything wrong with this beer though too amazing either but it is some of the best beer coming out of Mexico!

355ml brown bottle, 2014 Craft Beer Advent Calendar day 9. Clear and golden in the glass. Small sticky white head with some small lace rings. Nose has some sweet honey notes. Taste has grains and honey and some metallic notes. Plain finish. Not that exciting.

CBAC Day 9: There was a smooth honey and malt flavour, nicely balanced there but I got no hop flavours at all, which apparently were supposed to be prevelant. Decent, easy drinking beer but wish it was hoppier.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is bright, fruity and grassy. Appearance dark gold, ring of head, little lacing. Taste is exactly like a honey ale but with some metallic tast e. I’m not a fan of this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2014 Advent Calendar #9, 330ml, no bottle date or best before.
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is muted, grainy pale malt, grassy hops, honey. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky and mildly bitter. (3/5)
An unremarkable summer pale amber ale, if somewhat sweet. The honey does come through, and doesn’t taste artificial or cloying, eve though the mouthfeel does end up feeling sticky. Not quite sure how it figures into an Advent calendar, but I guess it’s hard to get 24 kinds of dark heavy beer...? That being said, it’s fairly easy-drinking, and the initial impression I had, of adjunct lager character, seems to be incorrect. (12/20)
