3.5/5  rDev +11.1%

No label information. Death Becomes You is brewed in the style of an American Amber Ale. Available year round in 11.2 oz. 6 packs.

Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 54 degrees Fahrenheit.

The beer pours a tannish white head over a moderate copper body, very clear with fine sediment and high clarity. Retention is good, lacing is light and patchy. Aromas of caramel grain, biscuit malt and light toffee generate a moderate malt body with a reserved sweetness. The flavor generates slightly more toffee and biscuit with a light earthy graininess to offset the sweetness of the malt profile. The texture is slick, mildly grainy and moderately dry. Carbonation generates a soft crispness for a medium frothy mouthfeel. The body is medium for the style, medium overall. Balance is slightly earthy bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is light, off characters are minimal. Overall it's a fairly enjoyable Amber Ale that avoids coming off as overly sweet, generating a nice amount of balance from the specialty malt. One of this brewery's more enjoyable beers.

A) Pours with a finger thick head then settles quickly leaving a sticky lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear, amber colored body.
S) Roasty, caramel aroma. Slight bready, yeasty notes.
T) Toasty malts. Mellow caramel. Nutty. Bready. Subtle hops in the finish linger a lingering malty sweetness.
M) Medium body. Slightly dry.
O) A decent amber / red. Dry sweetness is appropriate for the style.

Poured a deep clear amber, capped with a thick pillowy ivory head. The aroma is lightly malty but it has certain rich malt characteristic I'd look for in an amber. The taste is okay, with a corn sweetness that also occurred in their blonde ale, although it's much less noticeable and off-putting. The body is a little thin (somewhat watery). All in all, it's not bad, but it's not spectacular, either.

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.

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.
