A while back, the entire crew at Finn’s Manor went to Oaxaca, Mexico, to learn about Mezcal; this is why the mezcal selection at Finn’s is stellar. While down there, soaking up the food, culture, and weather, they returned with an appreciation of many things Oaxacan. So when Tom approached us about collaborating with them using heirloom Oaxacan corn, we said hell yes! 40% of the grist was whole kernel blue and purple Oaxacan corn we ground ourselves. It has left the lager with the very slightest pink tint. So faint it can be perceived best through direct sunlight after drinking a 4-pack of Cerveza Clara Y Mas Fina Especial!

16oz. can into a Fuzzy pint.

Pours a huge 3 finger foamy head that collapses quickly. Nose is muted. Slightly metallic with an effervescent tartness. Beer is a crystal clear goldenrod. Spotty lace. Beer opens adjuncts (corn) sweetness. Nice crisp, clean biting bitterness up front. A light waxy bitterness in the middle. Slightly metallic. Crisp, accented finish. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and goes down aggressive and sparkling.

A real solid summer drinker.

The liquid is pale straw and crystal clear. Decent and lasting head of two fingers. It settles slowly in a lumpy fashion. Oddly, only a few spots for lace.

Very much a macro offering aroma -- The malt is clean but thin and the hop bitterness minimal. No faults or errors which are so easy to show up in such a light beer.

I'm taken back to my first beer I ever had, a Genesee. As long as it was cold it was drinkable. At 40% corn, this is not a surprise. There's a light sweetness with a brief but clean hop bite in the swallow. The body is extraordinarily thin with an elevated carbonation level. Because this is so light every flaw would show up. I can appreciate how difficult it is to make a beer this clean. Still it's definitely a weak lawnmower offering.

The corn flavour is interesting enough, and it's a pleasantly clean drinking lager with perfect carbonation.

Bierstadt Lagerhaus Cerveza Clara y Mas Fina Especial

Appearance
Clear straw, tight tiny bubble head that dissipates rather quickly

Aroma
Light and clean malt; hint of fresh corn

Taste
Sweet,, bright acidity, corn chex, light floral hop finish

Mouthfeel
Round in the middle, finishes watery and clean

Thoughts:
This is an excellent corn lager. It most reminds me most of a helles. Although it is very clean and easy drinking, there are some very pleasant, if subtle, characteristics. This is by far the best canned beer I’ve had from Bierstadt - it doesn’t hurt that it was canned yesterday. I’ll be buying more!
