Crafted in the spirit of thirst quenching Mexican lagers, this well balanced amber lager is crisp with just a suggestion of caramel.

07/17/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not your grandfather's lager, unless he's from South of the Border. This is a lager more in the style of a Dos Equis or Modelo. IMO most US lagers lean to the pilsner side, not in this case. Thicker in body & more substantial in flavor this is a great beer. Even though the ABV says 4.5% it taste like a bigger brew. Give it whirl.

Poured minimal head on a clearer, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is faint; a little grain smell comes through.
The taste is grainy, mild bitterness with caramel which rounds it out nicely.
The texture is crisp but soft with moderate carbonation.
Overall, a nice and easy drink.
