Review: La Caminera

La Caminera    Mexico City is one of the largest cities on Earth, and the only place in Mexico I’ve ever been where the people ever move faster than a sturry*. It’s not particularly pleasant but there’s certainly a lot going on.
    Which is a good description for the artesanal beer La Caminera, a dark porter. It puts me in mind of Thanos: A complex taste that seems to grapple your tongue, filling your senses before dissolving into a sour aftertaste, and ultimately disappointment at the way it all ends. My wife said she thought it had a chocolate flavour, but I didn’t get that… when poured it gives moderately good head, but it’s not creamy at all. It’s got 6% alcohol, so it’s not a complete waste of time.
    So this is not my style of beer, but it does seem well made – I would suggest it for people who want a dark beer but not a rich creamy taste.

* A sturry is that shuffling run that people launch into to make it look like they’re moving faster when in fact their speed hasn’t increased one iota.
