Oskar Blues Beerito Mexican Lager
Oskar Blues Beerito Mexican Lager is a Vienna-style Lager, 4% ABV. I have to give it to Oskar Blues, this is a very clever name for a Mexican Lager.
This beer is a deep copper color with more of a dark amber color when held to the light. The head is a big off white head that fades pretty quickly. As Vienna Lagers go this one is pretty darn tasty! Not too much to report on on the aroma, a bit of caramel malt and no real hop presence. The taste is a big with a caramel maltiness with notes of grass and toasted bread. A mild hop bite comes in on the finish.
I have been seeing a few negative reviews and ratings of this beer online, but this is an excellent representations of the style! I would put it right up there with Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager when it comes to quality American brewed versions of this beer.
