Amber copper with no carbonation and a finger of beige head.

Smells richly of caramel, hard water, a slight citrus like a weak orange candy.

Very caramel forward, biscuit, malt, little english style hops to finish it off.

Medium, biscuity body, medium to low carbonation.

This really is like an English bitter, at least much more in the realm of a British style than the listed APA. Enjoying it as such. Found in Chiang Mai, drank here July 21st, 2016.

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this oddity as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store. I'm not quite sure what to make of this, and not quite sure who actually brews this. Label says brewed and bottle by Cerveceria Mexicana, S. de R.L. de C.V. Tecate. Product of Mexico, is about the only thing that is certain.

Poured into a miniature pint glass with Victorian carriages printed on it.

A - Pours a nice beautiful burnt sienna orange colored body, with three big fluffy fingers of rocky tan head. Looks like a root beer float on top of a nice IPA. Nice sheets of lacing on the way down. Looks great.

S - Smell is of some caramel / bread malts, some tea leaf sweetness, earthy yeast, and some herbal grassy qualities.

T - Taste follows the nose: bready caramel malts, some green apple skin, dirty herbal grass, hint of citrus / lemon, some twiggy earthiness, sweetened tea leaves, hint of white sugar, & some coiny metallics on the finish. Not too bad at all, considering what it is.

M - Feel is crisp and lightly bitter with some herbal hoppiness and dry bready caramel malt on the finish. Some lingering green apple skin, also. Medium bodied with good carbonation, feels a little bit more full than it is.

Overall, I thought it was excellent considering it is a Mexican imported APA. Not too bad at all. Nicely built and flavored, especially for being such a low abv beer. I would definitely have this again, and I look forward to trying more from this brewery, whoever they might be.

Los Muertos Queen Of The Night ---4/5.

Was told that this beer was solid and decided to give it a try. Here goes:

A: Best thing about the beer. The color is a dark reddish-brown. The head is quite good, too. I got a massive head straight from the bottle with plenty of lacing. Good protein content.

S: OK, not too special though. Can smell a little bit of American cascade and chinook hops (this is to be expected given the style, APA). However, to my surprise, the beer's smell indicates the presence of caramel and amber malts - i.e., of the lightly-kilned variety.

T: Not bad. Presence of NW hops balanced by a very strong malt backbone. In fact, the malt actually predominates in this beer; it's more like an ESB with American hops. When you drink the beer, you're introduced to a ton of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. The hops coat the back of the palate and linger on after consumption.

M: Not bad, but not good either. Somewhat watery, but the flavor makes up for this deficiency. Lots of carbonation, which is good.

O: Good beer, but nothing to brag about. Would have it again.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of malts. Taste is full of caramel malts, a touch of hops, some sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not what I would really expect from this style, but an enjoyable beer.

Queen of the Night Pale Ale has a thick, cream-colored head, a clear, copper appearance, lots of bubbles, and a good amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet malts, floral hops, and some white bread. Flavor is of caramel, floral and fairly pronounced hops, white bread, white bread crust, and touch of corn. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat watery, and Queen of the Night Pale Ale finishes semi-dry, sweet, bitter, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is good.
