(Ska Brewing Company)
The latest canned release from the folks at Ska. Mexican Logger is just available during the summer months and was previously just a bottled release. You've got to love the artwork on this can, another great addition to an already eye-catching lineup of great looking cans. ¡Salud!
From the Ska site:
"Hard-working refreshment. Some beers work a little harder than others for your enjoyment. Chops down trees all day for it. The pefect Mexican lager. Light and refreshing, it really hits the spot after a long day of brutal chainsaw work."
Here we go...
Pour - light straw-colored in appearance with a bright white head on top that measures about a half an inch. Nice carbonation, clean and clear.
Aroma - grainy, cereal, light malty sweetness, some hints at lemon and some light earthy hop aromas.
Taste - very light on the tongue, this beer almost floats in your mouth. Some light fruit flavors like granny smith apples and pears are evident along with some citrus. Not a whole lot of sweetness, which is nice as that would make this beer heavy. This has some extra pale ale qualities that I quite like and some earthy/spicy hoppiness is present if you let yourself find it. Wow, this is really hitting the spot on a warm summer night.
Overall - Mexican Logger has a tangy zip that is extremely refreshing. I was really impressed by this beer and all of the flavor it had. This is what you want on a hot summer day in the sun - light, crisp and thirst-quenching! Another impressive can from Ska. Cheers!
Would I buy more of it? - I'd love to get some more of these as we're heading into another week of heat and humidity. If you've passed this one up for any reason it's time to go back and grab a six-pack or two.
Note - the Ska site also states, "If you're a closet Pacifico drinker during the warmer weather than seek this one out. It is a far better brew, my friends. Saaz hops are the star in this amazingly delicious lager."
