A- Pours a clear auburn hue with an off white, fizzy head which dissipates quickly.

S- Aroma is very faint sugary sweetness and hints of grainy malt.

T- Grainy malts dominate the flavor with a cloying sweetness toward the end that has no distinct flavor.

M- Thin with a lot of carbonation.

D- This one was one of the harder ones for me to drink of the night. A friend described it as smelling like gym socks but I just attributed it to being a little too sweet with an off flavor i couldnt put my finger on.

Specialty seasonal beer that just went on tap at El Toro. $4.50 for a pint. This one was finished with wild Anise instead of hops according to the Brewmaster-President, Geno. It was named after one of the El Toro cooks. He described it as being similar to an amber with that anise licorice flavor and a 4.0 ABV.

Half inch white fizzy head that slowly dissipates. Transparent amber color.

Reminds me a bit of a pilsner in the nose. Some barley hints, some yeast. Overall a mild aroma.

Could be better balanced. This one has a strong barley flavor that I find somewhat common in some of my not so favorite El Toro brews. It wasn't until halfway through my pint that the anise/black licorice flavor started coming through. A pleasant accompaniment that stuck around a bit into the aftertaste.

Watery finish with a bit of a grainy feel left in the mouth. Light to medium body, decent carbonation.

Overall not a bad offering, especially for a 4% ABV.
