From the Print Edition:
Bill Cosby, Autumn 94
(continued from page 3)
This beer showed a good head with some mild fruitiness on the palate but otherwise had a simple malt character and a dull finish.
A pale yellow-green brew with solid, floral, hop aromas. It has pleasant bouquet flavors that flatten out to a smooth finish.
Classic light-beer profile with a thin head and a bit tart on the finish.
Dos Equis Amber
A creamy head over an attractive amber color. There is a nuttiness on the palate with some ripe apricot tones. Good balance. Taster's Choice.
Dos Equis Special Lager
A yellow-gold color with a decent head and herbal aromas. On the palate, this is a sweetish brew with some zesty malt flavors that come through the fairly heavy carbonation.
A pale malt brew with a light, fruity nose. It has a short finish with sharp flavors.
An attractive mahogany color with a complex, flowery nose. Round and robust flavors derive from the dark-roasted-style malt with hints of roasted apples. A slightly sharp finish highlights this dark lager. Taster's Choice.
A solid gold color with an active, foamy head. It has pleasing hop flavors and is relatively sweet. Good, clean lager. Taster's Choice.
This yellow-greenish beer has good carbonation yet produces a thin head. Hops dominate the flavors, and it has a slightly flinty finish.
There is a medium toasty malt aroma. On the palate, the malt is well balanced with a slight hop bitterness, but this brew has a short finish.
