Moza is a German-style Bock brewed by Cervecería Centro Americana, S.A., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a half-pint glass from a bottle.
Pours a clear chestnut brown that shows ruby highlights when held up to the light. The lager is topped by a thick, rocky cap of tan foam that exhibits remarkable retention. If not careful when pouring, the head can become a towering stack. Gobs of sticky lace and patches of residue remain through the consumption.
The aroma is faint, imparting a soft, sweet scent of grain.
The palate begins with a taste of cola and transitions to a gentle bite of floral hops. Finishes with a lingering malty caramel sweetness.
The feel is medium-light with moderate carbonation.
The aroma is slight; the feel is thin. And while it‘s expected that malt should be featured, the presence of hops is nearly absent. Add a cola-like flavor and no one would mistake the taste of this brew for an authentic German Bock. However, the Moza can be a nice change of pace in the wake of the numerous Guatemalan pale lagers
