A pint served at Ruta Maya.
Amber and clear with little visible carbonation. Poor head retention, it was there and gone in no time. Malty aroma with a bit of caramel sweetness. Big mouthfeel, very chewy. Noticeable carbonation up front, heavy middle with a malty flavor. Lots of hops on the back end. Reminded me more of a lighter colored bock than an amber.

growler courtesy of fthomasl, thanks dawg! Pours a lightly hazed amber color with a small tan head that leaves some spotty lace.
Nose is surprisingly nice, caramel and toffee with a few dallops of sugar. Malts are nice, bold and varied. Nice hop aroma too, bright and tropical.
Taste is pretty big, lots of hop flavor and tons of bitterness. Lingers on and on... Malts are no slouch either. Loads of sweet toffee and burnt toast. Not bad, but a little homebrewey. Not much depth and the flavors dont meld together all that well. Its almost a bit too much going on here, the beer could be simplified dramatically.

Served on tap at Opal Divine's Marina in Austin, TX
A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light aromas of sweet caramel and toffee malts and just the faintest hint of grassy hops.
T: The flavor of this beer is almost all sweet malts with both caramel and toffee notes. There is a light amount of grassy hops in the finish that lends a light amount of lingering bitterness.
M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin/watery.
O: Easy to drink and could be sessionable as I could easily put a couple of these back. Nothing special but definitely an enjoyable everyday kind of beer.
