I don't know why I keep coming back to this one. I just do.
Did you ever get hooked on a brew and just keep asking yourself, "Why?"
Well, here I am with my ump-teenth Carta Blanca, and every time I say, "Bueno!"
Of course, it's my first beer on any given evening, and I can only really drink one liter of the stuff before the twilight fantasy comes to a crashing halt, but...there I am, like a strung-out Cylon, trying to see what lies between the light and the dark.
[Okay, personal crap detector just went off.]
Alright. Looks good, smells good. The pour can give you a good, tight head (downright Teutonic!) if you work it right. It's got a great, sweet touch in the foretaste which just bursts into a super-quenching mouthfeel (It almost feels fattening it's so good). You can hold this mouthfeel for quite some time, as long as you can resist swallowing. Aftertaste speaks of a serious shrug of quality hops, and maybe even some barrel time. Whatever it is, it complements this ambiguous brew quite well.
I highly recommend this version (32 oz.) if you can get it.

I must have strange taste compared to most of you but this is exactly the type of beer I like.
Bought it in a large bottle at Albertson's. I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised.
I really like Euro style beers(grew up there) and I have noticed that the Mexican beers come much closer to these then your typical, watery American run off the mill beer(coors etc)
This is a non-pretentious, good tasting, thirst quenching Cerveza.
Just what a beer needs to do. Definitely will buy this again.
