COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We drew Red and Casita this year and bandied about a whole bunch of ideas. Eventually we realised we were circling around Mexican flavours that we all loved, so Ryan, Rich, and I looked into the flavour profiles from some traditional Mexican drinks and dishes that A) we like, B) played well together, and C) wouldn’t completely terrify the British palate! In the end we decided that the rich, savoury, sweet, chocolate, and umami flavours in mole sauces that come from a wide variety of dried chiles, tamarind, and cinnamon would provide the subtle base of the beer, and be accentuated by bright tart flavours of hibiscus and lime– just like you might find in a traditional tiendecita. A subtle complexity of flavours in the meal followed up by refreshing tastes from the aguas de tamarindo, Jamaica, limón, and horchata.

The_Osprey (9854) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2018
January 2018 - Tasting in Hackney. Can shared with big thanks to Team Boost. As 'Magic Rock Amanecer Mexicano'. Reddy pour, hazy with no head. Aroma is raspberry and lots of cherryade. Body is light and smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is cherry and marzipan, cherry tart, juicy, peppery in the finish. I love cherry flavours but not so much when it's this sweet. Still, it's nice. (6-4-7-3-15=3.5)
