Picked this up at a Shell Gas Station - had a gift card. Bump gas, I'm getting beer!
A - The appearance is a dark mahogany brown color. Dark for a lager - well, I guess this is a Dunkel (although I've read elsewhere that it is a Vienna Lager), so the darkness makes sense. The head is hanging around. Don't see many bubbles coming up so I'm not sure what to expect as far as carbonation. Looks pretty tasty.
S - If I was to close my eyes and take a sniff I would think I'm niffing a tasty biscuit. Along with the bicuity smell there's a slight funk going on there. Can't really put my finger on it. Maybe it's the earthiness of the smell.
T - It's doughy. It's sweet...like a sweet scone that hasn't baked all the way through and its gooey texture is ever-present in on the palate. This is a malty beer. The hops aren't too noticeable, although the finish has that tartness of a beer that used a small amount of hops in the boil. Wow, I'm getting an almost coconut flavor near the finish. Very refreshing. This is good, but a little weird.
O - I've had this beer before and I liked it, but I like it even more right now. This isn't my first rodeo with this beer and it won't be my last. On a scale from 0 to 100, I give it a solid 90.
Gracias Mexico para un otro cerveza sabroso. Not even sure the Spanish is correct, but the point is made. Thank you Mexico for another great tasting beer. (Another?)
