Found this bottle in Manhattan, KS. I thought it was a typical Mexican lager, but closer inspection revealed it to be from the UK. Further inspection of the ingredients led me to the discovery that they put sugar, flavor and citric acid in it. All of those ingredients make it taste like a corona that has already had a lime added to it. Or possible like a Miller Chill. It's fizzy and works okay with tacos but it was just not my thing.

A 500ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. Acquired a while back from a supermarket. Described as a tequila flavoured beer allegedly created in honour of the Aztec god Huehuecoyotl. Inspiring...

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden colour with good carbonation. Forms a smallish head of white foam that lasts for a moment before dissipating. Aroma of sweet artificial fruits and sugar with vague hints of lime, weak malt and a whisper of stewed leaves. Decidedly subpar.

Tastes like an artificial fruit cocktail with a sweet finish. Notes of lime, juicyfruits, sugar/sweetener, faint malt, weak stewed leaves and a harsh quality in the background. Little bitterness to speak of, but a touch of acrid cardboard upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with prickly carbonation and a thin, watery body. Mildly astringent, followed by an aftertaste of lime cocktail, sweetener and harsh stewed leaves.

Blech - not much of a beer. Looks pretty normal, however the aroma and flavour possess a cloying sweetness and fake fruit notes that jar the senses. Insipid body. A fairly unpleasant experience, at least for anyone with functioning tastebuds. One to avoid.
