Easy drinking, mild, a little sweet, probably a good summer drink

A pint served at Ruta Maya.

Amber and clear with little visible carbonation. Poor head retention, it was there and gone in no time. Malty aroma with a bit of caramel sweetness. Big mouthfeel, very chewy. Noticeable carbonation up front, heavy middle with a malty flavor. Lots of hops on the back end. Reminded me more of a lighter colored bock than an amber.

Reddish Amber almost copper draft pour; thick beige head; decent cap and retention; pretty good lace and clarity. Semi sweet caramel nose; semi sweet caramel malt flavor. Lite, almost watery mouthfeel; moderate carbonation. Lite, almost nothing, hop linger...

On tap at the W Austin Wet Deck, served in a Greenstripe plastic cup. Clear, light brown amber with a decent head of off white foam. Mild aroma of toasty cereal grains, slight fruit ale yeast. Malty body with caramel notes, more yeast fruitiness, slight spice and peppery bitterness. Medium body and good carbonation. Flavorful without much complexity; crisp and bitter enough to balance the malt and remain enjoyable poolside during August in Austin.
