S - Pint glass poured from the bottle.

A - Pours a relatively clear, dark ruby brown with a light finger width head. Short retention, leading to a broken layer of small bubbles across the surface.

S - Weak aroma. Subtle caramel notes. Not much else.

T - Follows the nose. Light but predominant caramel flavor. Ghostly presence of nuttiness and hops.

M - Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Tingles the tongue. Goes down smooth and easy.

O - My beer of choice when dining at a Mexican restaurant, only because of lack of selection. Not a bad beer, I simply want something more bold from a beer this dark.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle to an imperial pint.

A: Sienna, crystal clear, ruby hues, very thin and wispy head even after an aggressive pour.

S: Almond, grassy hops, corn syrup, buttered toast.

T: Wheat toast, grass, lemon oil, bitter hops finish.

M: Medium bodied and smooth with a bit of a hops bite at the end, especially for a macro.

O: Not bad, but not great. Would definitely be a fine selection at any Mexican restaurant.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: A dark, amber color. Not black. White head that sticks around at about 2 fingers.

Smell: Not much there. Very mild coco and malt notes.

Taste: Pleasant but simple. Mild bread and nuts up front with the alcohol slightly noticeable on the finish, despite the ABV. No complexity.

Mouthfeel: Thin with lots of carbonation. A pleasant fizz on the tongue on the finish.

Overall: An average drinker's beer. Can be enjoyed at anytime and takes no effort to appreciate.
