Style: Vienna Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Beerito (4% ABV, 21 IBUs) is a light bodied, amber Mexican lager brewed with premium German and coloRADo sourced craft malts and featuring a crisp accent from noble hops. The mouth feel is incredibly smooth with flavors of walnut, toasted bread, plum, honey and cocoa - 4% ABV doesn't always come with this kind of character.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 8-8-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, amber color with one-finger tan head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, higher than average carbonation, there is significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread, brown sugar, there is a toasted, earthy note.

TASTE: initially sweet brown sugar and bread then a roasted note and finishes with an earthy hop bite, definitely noble hops and very tasty.

PALATE: light body and higher than average carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good beer and the 4% ABV is most welcome, I would never guess by the taste it was such a low ABV, well done, I really enjoyed this and will definitely buy it again, i would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass

L: Clear golden amber pour. 1.5 fingers of foamy head. Falls fast with ample lacing.

S: Earthy and malty. A bit of caramel sweetness

T/F: Sweet caramel malts... bread and grains. Balanced with some hop bitterness towards the back end. Light in body... good carbonation. A little medicinal/earthy.

O: kind of a 'meh' beer. Expected better from Oskar Blues, and not a lot of reason to revisit this one. Easy session beer I suppose, and seeing as I just mowed the lawn this filled its purpose.

This is a dark, lightly hazy brownish color. the head is lasting, firm, and white. The aroma has a little malt, a lager light sulfur note, and just a hint of spice. The taste is balanced, with plenty of clean malt and a firm bitterness. Fairyl full mouthfeel and lots of malt in the finish. This is one excellent lager.

12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 12/15/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, pepper, light plum/apple, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit fruity/yeasty, but pretty minimal. Flavors of big honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, pepper, and toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, pepper, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a very nice Vienna lager. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and pretty refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Spot on style example. A very enjoyable offering.

When I first sipped this glorious lager, a strange sensation came over me. For at last, a light, refreshing, flavorful beer has quenched my parched lips. This beer is best served on tap, cold, and in a hot environment. Perfect for a day at the lake, or after a hard days work of tilling the fields.

thumbs up to oskar blues on this one
