Great layered malt character with some mild biscuit flavor. Light-bodied, lightly bitter, and a crisp lager finish. Perfect for a warm summer day out on the porch.

Buenos Tiempos by Belching Beaver Brewery a Mexican Lager and is being evaluated as a BJCP 2015 style 2A International Pale Lager. It pours with a big poofy (but fairly loose) white head that quickly fades to a small cordon ring at the edge of the glass. The beer is slightly hazy and a very light straw color.  There is a very light grainy malt aroma, with just a hint of floral hops, and a background herbal note. The flavor echos the aroma with light grainy malt notes and light floral hops, but also light corn, and particularly a light cooked corn (DMS) note (which is OK for the style). A very light body, balance between the malt and hops is about even (both very low), and a short finish that ends with an herbal/green-leaf/forest-floor type of thing. Medium low bittering puts a slight astringency at the end. Carbonation is medium low, and with the light flavors all around, this is a beer best consumed on the cold side.  Drink this after mowing the back 40 with a big pile of freshly made tortilla chips and some homemade guacamole.

Brewery Introduction

Belching Beaver Brewery came from a desire to make great beer and have a Dam good time doing it. When we started the company we wanted to do two things: First, have a brand that offered quality craft beer but was whimsical and fun to inspire good times.
