look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 ounce bottle

Pours clear, darker hued amber. Khaki head that stays. Leaves some larger bubble blobs as well.

Just a hint of some sweet malts on the nose.

Malty brew. Hoppy finish. With a few seemingly off notes. Bleh, not enjoying this one...looks like a drain pour about to happen.

the worst of the three beers from los muertos i drank today. under the twist top with a really cool skull on it, pours a very clear copper color, and ironically taste like salty pennies, like pennies that have been held in sweaty hands for a long time in line for the gumball machine or something, just tangy and metallic. the smell is a little better, but weirdly grainy without the toasted elements or the richness. some sweetness though, mostly in the finish, but the mineral vibe of this is off putting. not quite a drain pour, but not real good. i would still take this over a corona or a tecate, but its a let down to say the least. this might be coming to the state more widely soon, and may get some draw at mexican places and stuff, which has a robust scene in denver, so im not writing it all the way off, but its sloppy. good feel though, they all are bigger and foamy and bubbly and nice, but the flavor just isnt there.

2.51/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a very dark copper color with a head the color of grey oatmeal, about 1/4 of an inch, that fades to wisps. Sweet smelling: brown sugar, honey, malt, grass. Initial taste is dry hops, minerals, wood, wheat. The aftertaste is bitter, dry, more metallic, popsicle stick wood. Some nice lacing here and there. It feels like an amber ale - not too heavy, good carbonation. But for me the taste is just too off-putting.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Death Becomes You Amber Ale has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, red-brown appearance, and lot of solid lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, some syrup, and standard beer, and the flavor is of sweet, sharp bread crust, standard beer, sweetness, whipped cream, and fairly strong hop bitterness, especially so in the after-taste. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit soft, and Death Becomes You finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quaff-able. Overall, this is quite nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Tried a mixed 6 pack. Felt adventurous

Poured into my usual glass. Got a fairly dark clean brown. White head with some lacing.

Nose is caramel, pond water and chemical.

Taste: Some malts and caramel with sweetness. Aftertaste is unbalanced and unappealing. Watery tasting. Really don't want to waste much time talking about this. Not good.

2.5/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

So it seems we've got a new Mexican line here in the Chicagoland area, so let's take it on piece by piece, starting here with the amber. It pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises dry barley, light hard water, and that dark green vegetal smell you get when you whiff young poblanos. The taste holds notes of watery caramel, light biscuit, and dish soap. The body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and an exceedingly fluid feel. Overall, this was just a sad, limp little beer that didn't even come off like it was even trying. Let's hope the pale ale, the next on the docket, fares better...

3.46/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is crystal clear deep garnet red in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with some notes of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of caramel malts are a little stronger and there are also some hints of mineral water. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and doesn't really seem to be too malty despite the lack of bitterness from the hops.
