Neomexicanus Native is an American Pale Ale brewed by Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a can.
Pours a cloudy straw color with a thin head of white foam that yields a little retention but no lace.
The aroma is bright with a scent of tangerine and mango.
The palate consists of piney hops backed by tangerine, mango, and a base of cracker malt. Finishes with a mild, yet lingering lemony bitterness.
Its feel has a lighter body than expected; somewhat grainy with ample carbonation.
Neomexicanus Native is a Pale that offers a little something different. But perhaps the brew would be better served in a different style. A tweak here and there and this could be a Gose or Saison. Or maybe a Wheat Ale. Regardless, this is still an enjoyable brew that’s refreshing and easy to drink.
