SKA Brewing Mexican Style Lager Dark
What the brewers say
A dark lager—smooth and slightly malty-sweet. Balanced, mild hop-bitterness.
What our panel thought
Bright, copper brown–good head that retains well. Assertive chocolate malt in the nose, dressed with a bit of toasty malt, light floral hops, and a light coffee edge. Firm roast in the well-rounded flavor—nuts, toast, biscuit, and chocolate in balance, with light, clean, complementary floral-herbal hop flavor. Fairly creamy. Very drinkable. A bit richer than a Negra Modelo. Quite pleasant.
What our editors thought
Well-done toast with a light coffee-roast note on the nose—faint, but ever-so-slightly sweet. The sip tugs between dark caramel on one side and light roast-plus-hops bitterness on the other, with a slightly acidic malt tinge that lends it a bit of sharpness.
