La Calavera Catrina

Beer #1862 is a spiced blonde brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand.

A sweet and spicy blonde ale, with a definite honey-like taste (although I don’t think there’s actually any honey in it). The watermelon adds some fruity sweetness and the Habanero chili adds a fiery heat to it that’s never overpowering.

The bottle size is 650ML with an alcohol content of 6.90% (containing approximately 3.50 AU / 4.50 UK standard drinks), and it cost me $20.00.

My Rating is 6.75/10 which means it’s a great beer but it’s just lacking something for me.

Brewer Notes:
La Catrina is as blonde as Day of the Dead is dark, but she’s no lightweight. The base beer is a blonde lager with a cheeky, even ironic addition of maize. Maize is an ingredient you’d normally associate with much blander lager offerings, but here it is fired up with a generous addition of organic Habanero chillis, giving Calevera a far more assertive chilli heat than the smoky chipotle of her brother. To this blonde chilli base went an addition of rose water and watermelon. The result is a complex and surprising beer we think can stand proudly beside the Day of the Dead. Cheeky, ironic, complex and firey – what more could you want in the Lady of Death? We hope you’ll give her a warm welcome.
