Description 

Beerito is a light-bodied, amber Mexican lager brewed with premium German and colorado sourced craft malts and featuring a crisp accent from noble hops. The mouth feel is incredibly smooth with
flavors of walnut, toasted bread, plum, honey and cocoa - 4% ABV doesn't always come with this kind of character

Light toasty malt and moderate caramel malt dominate the aroma. A very subtle hop spiciness is detectable in the nose of this beer as well. The color is copper, very bright, with a persistent, finely-bubbled head that is slightly off-white. The flavor of this beer is malt-accentuated with toast and caramel malt components followed by a mild hop bitterness. The finish is slightly sweet with caramel malt lingering along with some toasty malt, a slight floral hop flavor and a little bite from the hop bitterness that creates a touch of crispness in the finish. The ferment is very clean and lager-like with no fruit esters or other off-flavors from yeast. The mouthfeel is medium-light with just a touch of carbonic astringency. Overall, this is a very good example of a Vienna Lager that does not taste like it has been compromised with sugary adjuncts, shortchanged of hops, or otherwise turned into a beer made for marketing slogans and spring break beach parties.
