Noche Buena

Noche Buena from Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, Monterrey, Mexico is kind of flat-looking and headless, being deep copper to brown in color.  There is a mild spiciness in the bouquet, a little butter as well, and sweetness.  The taste follows the bouquet, lightly peppery and bitter, but still sweetish.  The finish holds the bitterness for a long time compared to other beers in the bock family.  It’s basically Negra Modello with an education.  I wanted to love it as I was excited by its recent availability, but can only say I like it OK.
