Ambar, which is made the La Cervecería del Centro, is probably the most technically perfect beer made here in Costa Rica- for the same reason, and it being a marzenbier, it is not very outgoing or original. Not that I am saying that is a bad thing.
At a recent visit to one of my favorite spots to drink, I was told they have a dunkel by the same crew.
This one is bold for sure. It says it comes in at 7.5% and it has the malt to back that up. Not bitter, yet toasted, not sweet yet full bodied and malty. It has a almost creamy mouthfeel to it which is cut by a nice level of carbonation. This is a good beer.
Now, could I drink this all night?; no. Will I order this again?; definitely.
Once again a technical success that appears to be pushing the limits a little bit more than I expected.
