2.15/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Pours (just like a lot of these Mexican lagers) a light straw with a fluffy head. This one sticks around a little longer... but still, dissipates quickly.

Smells spicy, with grain in the background, and a little bit spritzy like seltzer. Cornflakes don't jump out at me for once. At first the spiciness is pleasant, but as it warms I keep smelling it and think... is this me or the beer? Do I need a shower? But nope, it's the beer. Kinda gross. Some play-doh rears its nasty head after a while.

Tastes more of the same. Metallic. There's barely any discernable bitterness, though by the end of the glass I want to scrape my tongue. A faint sweetness builds as well, but that's reasonably pleasant.

Mouthfeel is ok. A little thin for the style.

I'm surprised how little I like this. Before writing this review I've already had half a case of these while in the pool this week, and I enjoyed them all quite thoroughly. Moral of the story, I guess: keep the beer in the can, put the can in a coozy.

From a can. I bought a suitcase at AM/PM as an emergency step when the kegerator ran dry of Mirror Pond.

Not as bad as you have been led to believe. This is the definitive Mexican macrobrew, and it's better than any American macro. Still, a little too much corn and maybe rice.
