A- Light brown with a red hued body and a nice creamy off-white head and good lacing

S- As a red ale should, nice and crisp malts and a hint of hops in there that adds to the crisp nose

T- A little hop presence up front and moves into a nice roasted, nutty malt middle and finishes with that roastiness.

M- Light bodied and moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O- Fun to see a brewery new to me making such a solid beer. If I were able, this would be an all-day beer for me on vacation. The sessionable 5% abv is great.

This is my favorite beer in Cost Rica, now available in different locations in the central valley and coastal areas.
Appearance: Pours a reddish color, nice head that lingers for several minutes, forming a nice Belgium lace.
Smell: spicy, grainy and hoppy
Taste: clean crisp taste, a little sweet and bready with a good balance of bitterness
Mouth feel: medium bodied
Overall: Very good craft beer easy to drink

Was welcomed at the airport with this brew. Can you drink in the car? Sure. Nice to be somewhere with reason. Taste is nice and strong ale-like, great body, nice balance. Good to know you can get craft beer in CR. Will drink this over my preferred Bavaria Megra when they have it.

A great red ale! Found this brew in Costa Rica on tap and it hit the table with a reddish almost rusty color to it and about a finger of head which laced down the glass nicely. It smelled deep and malty with a hint of hops. It feels great going down and you get a nutty flavor with a great hop finish. Not overly carbonated, very clean finish, very crisp. This is not a heavily alcoholic brew. Its maybe 5-5.5%. Its a perfect year round beer and its great on a warm Cartago afternoon. I'm glad I brought some back with me.
