Share This Review

Muy Bonita is an American Brown Ale brewed by Funky Buddha Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a Teku glass from a bottle.


Pours a burnt umber with a thick cap of khaki-colored foam that reduces slowly. Heavy residue coats the sides of the glass.


Soothing aroma is sugary sweet with cinnamon and applesauce.

The palate follows the nose with flavors of apple, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of booze. Bitterness is subdued with mild lemon, used nicely in a complementary manner.


Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with low carbonation and a medium body.


Muy Bonita is packed with plenty of flavors even if it is a bit too sweet. Not your typical brown ale but there’s still a lot to like.

Recommended Pairings

Funky Buddha recommends the following food pairings with their Muy Bonita: cheeses of aged Gouda, young Comte, mild cheddar, and Mycella; cuisine of grilled red meat, herb-crusted pork tenderloin, sweet winter squash, earthy root vegetables, wild rice pilaf, sausage and rutabaga baked with gruyere; sweets of vanilla bread pudding with apple crumble topping.
