I am trying the Aura Lager at Nomangue restaurant in Rio. It poured a clear copper with initial white head that eventually dissapated and left no lace. The scent was fresh but nondescript. The taste was evenly balanced and easy to drink. There was some sweet malt at the front then finishes dry. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's not to bad. Glad to have tried it.
Copper color with a thick off-white head with good retention.
Mild malty aroma with hints of apple puree, a bit of cooked vegetables and maybe orange citrusy. I missed the hint of chocolate sometimes I see in this style.
Flavor with notes of toasted malts, lager yeast, lots of bread crust, a bit of oranges, some cocoa powder and finishing with tea and spicy hops. A bit metallic, but caramel is not material. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
Hoppier and relatively less complex Vienna Lager. You fully feel its 27 IBUs, which is still within style. Given its hops it feels less sweet than the Mexican counterparties and sure more toasted. Not bad, go for it if you like the style, and dig toasted with hops.
