I’ll say this: you cold do a lot worse for the price! Not bad. A nice malt backbone holds this thing together. It is smooth, cocoa, chocolate, and rich. 11.2oz bottle pour.

12 oz. bottle from the Cincy location from notes. Pours a clear reddish brown tea color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some grainy character, but also toasted malt, caramel, hints of fruit, this was the best of the bunch for these guys.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Chris R. Cap has a $1.00 sticker on it. Clear brown red color. Finger of off-white head. Decent bits of lace. Dark fruit and caramel flavor, dates. Mild spiciness, some mild metallic, mild mustiness. Medium body. Moderate stength carbonation. Lightly slick. Light to moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter, and a mild bite. Overall, an ok mexican dark macro lager, but not impressive.

Clear, dark brown with a small beige head.
Almost smoky caramel malt, aroma.
Lactic and sweetly caramel...almost tangy chocolate malt.
Ok, but just barely.

Type: 330-ml. (11.2 oz.) bottle
Glass: 9-oz. plastic cup
From: Trader Joe’s in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $5.99 for a 6-pack
Purchased: Sept. 23, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 25, 2014
Poured a brown, dark caramel, murky color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki, tan head. Very good foamy circular lacing along the sides of the cup. Above average-to-very good retention of nice foaminess on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.57)
Smelled lager or pilsner notes up front, followed by porter notes. Got corn, skunky malts, cereal, then caramel, toffee, chocolate and some roasty malts. (Smell - 3.70)
Taste wasn’t as nice as the smell, but similar. Got caramel, toffee, roasty chocolate malts, roasted nuts, chocolate milk, earthy malts, boozy corn, cereal and some grassy hay. (Taste - 3.50)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, slightly roasted itter finish. (Feel - 3.40)
A lot better than I thought it would be. I don’t know what I was expecting, but for this style this was pretty good. (Overall - 3.52)
