Ocozol Azafrán

Ocozol Saffron Ale

??? %ABV

2 out of 5

A very light golden ale with a slight flavor of saffron at the beginning, which then disappears. In fact, besides the initial taste of saffron, this beer has almost no taste at all. Very bland. The idea of putting saffron in the beer is interesting and there is the potential that this beer could get better if the brewer works on the recipe more, but as it stands, this beer is disappointing.

I have only had one other beer by Ocozol, a porter made with black pepper. That beer was also pretty underwhelming.

This 10oz glass of saffron ale was purchased at Makena for 45 pesos.
