New Braunfels Brewing Company Mexican Cannon Review by beer_reviewer

I picked up this single bottle of “Mexican Cannon” at the Spec’s on De Zavala and I haven’t seen it anywhere else in town. This is a Gose beer with 4.9% alcohol brewed by the New Braunfels Brewing Company right here in Texas. This had completely terrible reviews and should of saved it for Foul Beer Friday, but as y’all are about to see, I absolutely loved it: Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass. Pours with two finger’s worth of white foam that trickles down to a half finger’s worth within a minute and a half (beautiful dissipation rate). Very pale, murky yellow in color. No bubbles are visible due to the murkiness, but I know they are there because of the foam head. Has extremely strong aromas of salt with strong lime peel aromas and a hint of wheat. Initial taste is of a mega punch of salt. Strong lemon-lime (unsure from where the lemon flavor came) flavors enter immediately after the salt flavors. A touch of wheat follows the lemon-lime flavors to balance out the brew as salt flavors decrease from extreme to strong. Medium bodied, smooth, little carbonation with a crisp, refreshing finish. If people haven’t tried a gose style beer before, I can see why they have given this such a bad rating. I personally love the extremity of the salt/lemon-lime combo. I have to say this is my favorite gose, although gose beers are suppose to have coriander. This one didn’t have any that I could detect.

OVERALL RATING: 4.11 out of 5.
