3.6/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours an effervescent honey color with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Above average lacing & head retention

S: Bready & grainy notes, plus a bit of green apple, some perfumy hops as well

T: Much doughiness, bready sweet malt & a touch of lemony & grassy hops up front. More grassy, grainy & bready notes as this warms, nice pear fruttyness & a touch dryness & lemony hops too. Finishes dry with grainy breadyness, some lemons & a touch of honey suckle & Golden Delicious apple; almost pulled a 4.0

MF: Light/medium bodied with soft carbonation, good balance

Drinks easy. I like this better in the can versus the draft versions I've had; almost seems like a different beer. The draft version struck me as more like a Mexican Lager type deal with some rough notes. This will be in the rotation if I can find it around here...

3.17/5  rDev -11%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Serving notes - had this at McNellie's in Tulsa, shaker glass, just cool of room temp.
A - sweet and grainy
A - finger of head that dissipates to a persistent film, crystal clear yellow/straw.
M - thin body, low carbonation.
T - sharp grainy taste with grassy hops. Nice maltiness comes through as the beer warms. Some hop bitterness on the back of the tongue.
D - Very decent beer, but not one that I would consider a session beer.

Had this beer at a local restaurant in Stillwater, Oklahoma and I was somewhat perplexed by this beer. The bartender told me it was a cerzesa but it poured a dark. clear amber color. This is a beer that doesn't require nor warrant a lime or salt. When you first drink this beer it tastes like a salty Dos Equies but as it warms it takes on a very salty taste that is very unique for this kind of beer. All in all, it's a good beer but it's not like anything you would expect for a "mexican" style beer
