Description

Say 'Hasta La Vista' to everything you thought you knew about lager

Will us Brits get the chance to escape the country in 2021 in an attempt to migrate into a warmer climate just like the Austrians did back in 1864?? Probs not. But let’s all play pretend and sink a few of these smooth creamy Mexican Lagers in an attempt to make peace with this notion.

Anyway….. in 1864, thousands of Austrians moved to Mexico after Ferdinand Maximilian Habsburg of Austria was appointed as Mexico’s emperor. Naturally, they brought their beer recipes with them. (Kind of them) While Max’s reign was short lived and lasted just three years the Austro-Mexican brewing tradition continued…At least they got a holiday.

Not bad

Wanted to like this one, everything else I’ve tried has been spot on. Not my favourite but worth a try I would say.

Just right for a frosty autumn night!

Interesting

Wasn't sure what to expect and still not entirely sure what to make of it. Sort of a cross between a lager and I cola, sweet, but just the right side of too sweet with a malt finish.

Great Dark Lager

It's not often you find a dark lager, but it's a style I really like and this is a cracking example.
