Preface: Once again, I always rate a brew to style...

A - A very nice clear Yellow with an equally as nice white soapy/foamy head. Head pours very rich with good sustainability. Head leaves some nice lacing behind too. There's a slight straw color to both the head and the brew.

S - WOW, for a Lager, this is one of the best scent's I've ever smelt! Very nice a light, yet very powerful orange scent. Almost smells like an ocean, in a good way. Rose and light caramel also comes to mind. Clearly (as you can see from the logo) there's Saaz hops in this one.

T - WOW, Can't beat this one. Has a ton of deep flavors; for a Lager. Very smooth and delicious, there's absolutely no off flavors in this brew. All the flavors blend very well. Well balanced hops, a very early hop schedule. Zero biterness and full flavor! Maybe some slight green chili too

M - WET! Very light and airy. Amazing carbonation. Very little I would do differently! Clean, crisp, refreshing....

O - I cannot wait to take this one to the fishing stream or out backpacking! Quite the brew, I'm very excited SKA finally started distributing this one! SKA nailed the Lager style. A must try... LOOK OUT Another6pack....

Cheers!

12oz can poured into a Three Philosophers snifter.

Appearance - Clear gold body. Thin white lace.

Smell - Faint honey. Slight musky grain.

Taste - Pretty complex for a lager. Clean with no off characteristics. The flavor profile morphs while on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Clean and light with a slight bite.

Overall Drinkability - Possibly the best lager I've had.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear light straw yellow. Fizzy white head that recedes to a wisp. Minimal lacing, if any.

Aroma: Faint sweet grains and malts.

Taste: Very clean and crisp grain body. Subtle hop essence in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, clean.

Overall: Fantastic and so refreshing. And I love that it's canned. And low ABV. Perfect warm weather beer.

The Mexican logger is a sound good american pale ale. Its appearance is typical....average....smell includes the Saaz hop similar to others. The taste to me is much better balanced than the big marcos put out. The body is a nice medium to loght with good carbonation. overall a very tastee beer....probably one of the better american pales I've had.
