Taste: semi sweet caramel malt, hints of wheat and corn, clean finish. Mild grainy thin nose. Lite Gold, mostly clear, with a refined head and nice ring to the lattice of lace. Light body. Summertime ale.

For a cerveza this is a really good beer. A cloudy blond color with a decent head. A regular beer smell with a good flavor. Slightly above carbonation but by far my favorite Mexican beer. Need to try it with lime.

While in Los Angeles my wife and I went for dinner at a vegan Mexican place, Gracias Madre. Wonderful food.
This beer is fairly ordinary, but went well with the food.
A clear gold color with a small white head.
Aroma of sweet grain.
It tasted like Frosted Flakes.
Light-bodied, drinkable.

Had this in a Mexican restaurant in Palm Springs.
Rarely does a restaurant have a beer list in which there is even one selection that I'm not familiar with. Don't know the story about why this ale gets so little distribution.
Since I went there for some piquante to clear out my sinuses, I really don't think I should review this beer. But I will say I should have chosen an IPA to go with the food.

Best before 12/11/15.

Pours a clear dark golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, corn flake, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, frosted corn flake, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing really stands out about it to me.

Serving type: bottle.
