Obscura (American Brown Ale) – Cervecería Cucapá (December 3, 2013)

Beer Advent Calendar 2013

Coming from one of the First Micro Breweries out of Mexico comes the “Obscura (American Brown Ale)”.  The brewery is located in Mexicali, Mexico.  The beer pours a ruby/brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, nuts and an overall sweetness.  The flavour is of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, sweetness, hops bitterness and a slightly odd cider like finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.8%.  I found this a pretty enjoyable brew and I was happy to have the opportunity to try it in this advent calendar.

Commercial Description:  Gold Medal at the “2007 World Beer Championship, 91pts” Deep chestnut brown color with a medium brown head. Sweet toffee, roasted nuts, and brown sugar aromas follows through to a smooth, dryish medium body with great roundness, purity, and depth. Finishes with a rich dark roasted nut, baker’s chocolate, and earthy hop fade. Very nice!
