Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of malts. Taste is full of caramel malts, a touch of hops, some sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not what I would really expect from this style, but an enjoyable beer.

Was told that this beer was solid and decided to give it a try. Here goes:
A: Best thing about the beer. The color is a dark reddish-brown. The head is quite good, too. I got a massive head straight from the bottle with plenty of lacing. Good protein content.
S: OK, not too special though. Can smell a little bit of American cascade and chinook hops (this is to be expected given the style, APA). However, to my surprise, the beer's smell indicates the presence of caramel and amber malts - i.e., of the lightly-kilned variety.
T: Not bad. Presence of NW hops balanced by a very strong malt backbone. In fact, the malt actually predominates in this beer; it's more like an ESB with American hops. When you drink the beer, you're introduced to a ton of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. The hops coat the back of the palate and linger on after consumption.
M: Not bad, but not good either. Somewhat watery, but the flavor makes up for this deficiency. Lots of carbonation, which is good.
O: Good beer, but nothing to brag about. Would have it again.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with a nice two finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit and faint toasted malt, light grassy hops, slightly vegetal. Flavor follows with biscuit malt, light grassy hops, finishing with slightly astringent grassy hops. Medium bodied. Considering the origins, not a bad pale ale, the beginning is full bodied malt with a proper hopping for a pale ale. The finish is a bit unbalanced, but overall, a drinkable inexpensive pale ale with a decent malt bill. I wouldn't seek this one out, but would be happy to get it again with a meal.

This "Queen" is a bright amber-copper brew, pretty clear, with a reasonably well developed near-white head that manages some decent structure as well as stick.
In both flavor and aroma, there's a fair depth and reasonable complexity under a pretty even balance of malt and hops. Appropriately, hops do come out just ahead, though it's certainly not as hop-heavy as many out there. In this one, A mix of citrus, leaf and grass is set in contrast to toast, caramel and a hint of toffee.
The carbonation is firm, crispness as well but a little on the spritzy side with only a little structure to add smoothness, though it does.

Some confusion over which location to review this beer. Looks the same as the bottle shown for the Porta Viarta (sp) location.
Anyway pours a stellar clear medium amber with two fingers of cream colored head. Good amount of dense lacing until the head recedes about the halfway point.
Smell is clean malty but pretty mild.
Taste is big euro hop flavors with a good amount of bready malt backing.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin like a lager and carbonation is higher than needed. Nice mildly dry bitter finish. The hops remind me of most euro pilsner type. Anyway it is a surprisingly tasty Pale Ale from a Mexican brewer. (Tecate?) Would not make my top 50 list of APAs but it is a fairly low abv 4.8% listed.

LOOK: The 12 oz bottle pours a copper color. White head forms and left rings of lacing. Has a chill haze.
SMELL: Floral and some hop pellets in the aroma. Some light caramel malt is on the back end.
TASTE: Caramel, grains, and a leafy, mildly bitter hop. The beer drinks easy enough, and there's enough hops to ke
FEEL: Light and a bit watery, but well carbonated enough and refreshing.
OVERALL: An interesting pale ale from Mexico.
