Beerito is a Vienna Lager brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a mug from a can.

Appearance

The pour is a deep amber making it a little darker than expected. The lager is clear and capped by a thick, cream-colored pad of foam. As the head reduces slowly it leaves behind some nice patches of sticky lacing.

Aroma

The aroma is slight and offers a scent that’s standard fare for Vienna Lager. It’s a pleasant mix of caramel malt, and to a lesser extent, floral hops.

Flavor

The tasting opens with a mild bite of noble hops before it touches upon its intended Mexican theme. The palate shifts to a sweet finish of dark fruit with a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel

The feel is smooth with a medium-light body and moderate carbonation.

Overall

The Beerito brings a lot of flavor out of a beer that only has 4% ABV but its taste is closer to its Austrian roots rather than its intended Mexican concept. Regardless, Oskar Blues has crafted a lager that’s refreshing and easy to drink.
