2.33/5  rDev -15%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured from 12-ounce green bottle into Berkshire Brewing pint glass:

A: Poured a pale, straw yellow color with a sudden rush of carbonation, then nothing; is this soda?

S: Smells of faintly sweet cow corn with a faint skunkiness familiar to other Mexi-lager drinkers.

T: Tastes like a Corona with a splash of Heineken mixed in it. What a nasty Euro combo.

M: Mouthfeel is sharp, thin and stinging.

D: Standard drinking lager, but with a foreign trashiness all it's own. I've been told it's alright on draft, but I don't care to find out.

This brew probably goes over at trendier Mexican-themed bars and restaurants, just to offer something to people who scoff at Corona, but still want that "authentic" Mexican experience. Go for a Negra Modelo instead, if they've got it.
