Hazy golden yellow color with a thin head with short retention.
Light citrusy aroma with notes of fresh oranges, vanilla and bread malt.
Citrusy flavor with notes of fresh squeezed oranges and bread malt. Mildly acid and dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light body with proper carbonation.
Refreshing and very sessionable Golden Ale with assertive orange citrusy notes. Not complex, but it is well crafted as usual for this brewery.

Very clear, very light straw-colored, poured a fluffy, 1in+ head. Smells very subtle: some biscuity malts and not much else. Tastes like another Mexican lager. It's clean, which is good. No cornflakes, but quite boring. The mouthfeel is great, however - very creamy with fine carbonation. It's drinkable, but it's boring. I'd drink it again, but it's not first on my list.

passable beer, nonoffensive. Slight cidertaste and neutral aroma and coloured body. A bit of lace. Average mouthfeel. While not hoppy, it was mildly bitter and no off notes. If I was stuck in Mexico without any other beer, I would have this.Stephen Rich's bottle.
