Rio Refresco Pale Ale, Eske's Pub and Restaurant, Taos New Mexico
The second of the Eske's beers I sampled at their brew pub and restaurant in Taos, New Mexico was the Rio Refresco Pale Ale, which sounded good after a long hot day in the sun...
It pours a thick honey color with a nice big head.
The aroma is citrus with hop - and a unique aroma which - and I may just have been influenced by the dry environs - I detected a hint of agave.
Earthy hop builds, but it is not too bitter. It has a medium body, smooth with slight citrus and I swear, agave - if any one else tries this beer, let me know what you think.
The aftertaste is mildly bitter and dry.
