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.

A- Pours darker than I expected- a walnut brown . Finger of head and some weak dotted lacing-. Hazy too.

S- malty- so some malt syrup. A bit if earthy hops.

T- More flavor than I expected. Lots of malt. Caramel. Earthy and slightly piney hops. Kinda fresh and dank at the same time which is wierd.

M- pretty easy drinking. Better cold- there's some oxudationy flavor that comes out as it warms.

O- not bad. Maybe the best Mexican beer I've had.

From notes taken 03/02/16:

A moderately clear darker shade of copper with creamy tan colored head, fluffy and rocky with great retention. Alright lacing. Caramel, dates, toast, tea, and resin on the nose. Not as sweet on the palate as nose led me to expect, very toasty, caramelization sans much sugar, hops are resinous, leafy, herbal, and close to being spicy, with pepper from both/either hops and/or alcohol. Essentially, a dry, watered down Amber Ale. Light in body and watery, slick, sloshy, and softly effervescent.

Kind of a forgettable pale ale but it is certainly a pale ale. Pours a little dark, smell is of some hops but more malt, and taste is some malt balanced with hops and a little bit of citrus hop flavor thrown in there; malty aftertaste. For a beer hecho en México, it's not too bad. Sitting at a bar in Juárez, seeing my choices be Tecate, Corona, Dos Equis, or this, I would choose this is it would have more hop presence and overall flavor. The more I drink it though, the more it is getting a little old. Cool artwork on the label and on the (twist off) cap.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a slightly cloudy texture. Some sediment. There was an a 1 1/2 inch, foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Pretty good lacing.

S: A below average aroma of hops, a lot of malt, and some grain.

T: Tasted of a good amount of malt, a grainy profile, and a metallic element in the finish. There's a light citrus ingredient, but it doesn't stand out. Not a particularly great flavor that's pretty bland and a little grating. Nothing special.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with somewhat harsh finish. Light bodied.

O: Making a unique APA is a difficult task, and Queen of the Night doesn't meet the task. It's simply very average and forgettable.

This beer pours quite dark for a relatively low ABV Pale Ale. I was expecting a bit of a mess to be honest based on the pour. I was kind of pleasantly surprised though upon trying it. The nose doesn't provide much to write home about with minimal hop character, but the beer itself tastes alright. It is pretty easy to drink and unoffensive. It does suffer from being a bit thin in body despite its malty look, and it certainly is not providing anything profoundly delicious but it is a serviceable option for unoffensive, yet uninspired beer.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is danky citrus and grain.
The taste is bland: mildest bitterness and a touch of malt.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It's tasteless.
