3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have moderate spicy rye character, caramel, some orange citrus and hints of resin, seems faded and not being sure of the age probably makes since, all in all just another tick.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy off white head. The aroma is dark fruits and rye. Thin mouth with sweet malt, rye, and caramel. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear deep amber color, off-white head that maintains a good cover, strings of lace. Taste is sweet malt with an edge of rye. It grows some in the palate, adding just enough hops to bring things back in line. The malt returns deep in the finish, lingering with a little viscosity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle
Located on the clearance shelf at Party Source this was a decent release. Normally I’ve stayed away from Mexican breweries assuming they were all a hot mess. This one wasn’t great but for $3.99 a bomber you could do far worse with an inept or inexperienced local alternative.
Aroma / Appearance - A caramel orange base is soon overtaken by surges of starchy white head. Orange cream, malts, and mild hops give it some presence. However it feels a bit like a wallflower compared to other rye influenced beers in the same spirit.
Flavor / Palate - Nutty caramel, fresh hops, and a dash of resin captivate the palate for a few minutes. After a while though it begins to take on this feel that something is missing. Flashes of brilliance are not enough to salvage what is ultimately a brewery to scroll past. With so many other options this is only worth a look if you need a cheap Mexican tick that isn’t Corona.

Light body nice lacing. Hoppy aroma. Tropical fruit and hops and a bit of booze flavour. Tastes a bit like Canadian rye whiskey.

What a great beer. Pours a nice jazzy orange with sweet malty aromas. Tastes like Christmas oranges and rye. This is really good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with hints of caramel. Taste is a herbal, spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Certainly enjoyable and recommended.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fine and strong rye flavor. Red amber color. One of best Mexican beers that I have tried---and in a brown rather than ’sellout’ clear bottle!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber - pours unfiltered orange/amber with one inch of beige head which mostly lasts and thin lacing. Nose is rye, cheese, and citrus. Fairly bitter with moderate sweetness. Metallic aftertaste. Would have been better when fresher. a little boozy on the gums. I got what I expected. I’m glad I tried it because it reaffirms that there are some good beers from Mexico.

Rather basic beer. Some rye, an honorium to hops, and light beige colour with a little head. A small rye aroma. So-so drinkability.Thanks Chris.
