Alamo Beer seems to be the perfect blend of larger beer and home-brewed / microbrewed styles. There is an easy drinking taste to it that will appease fans of Budweiser and Samuel Adams like, while there is a smoothness that makes the aftertaste into something like the lightest of porters. When pouring, there is a strong golden color to the beer itself while pouring a very small head, while initial flavors present bring together fruit and malt to the All-American â€œbeerâ€ flavor fostered from older regional efforts like Schaefer and Schlitz (and Pabst) all the way to the current generation of beers today.
This is essentially a beer that individuals can sit down with and actually feel as if they are getting somewhere, instead of going through a 12 pack of a Milwaukee Best Light and feeling as if one is merely â€œrentingâ€ the beer. There is just enough in the way of bite in the finish to make this a perfect beer to use as a palette cleanser during dinner or cheese sessions, but there is versatility enough to allow parties of all types to be graced by the presence of Alamo Golden Ale.
