    Next up is Athletic Brewing - Cerveza Atletica. This is my fist Athletic brew, so I have high hopes given how well regarded these beers are.

    Pours a clear amber color. Thick off white head. Head retention is about average. Aroma has heavy notes of dark bread, grain, cereal. and wort that has a slight sour character to it. From the name I am assuming they are trying to mimic a mexican dark lager. Well, this smells nothing like that.

    Taste has notes of malt, dark bread, sourdough, bread with a slight metallic flavor. Again, it is not much like a mexican dark lager - more akin to a bready dunkel? Feel is light to medium bodied. Light carbonation. Lighty dry and bitter on the finish.

    This one is okay- its not a good replacement for a mexican dark lager - but its not bad on its own. It just does not provide what I was expecting it to provide.
