Wisconsin

3.33/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. can - no freshness date, but recently purchased.
Poured gold with little carbonation and a very thin fizzly head that disappeared within seconds. No lacing was left.
The smell was thin - some hints and mild hops and sweet malt. Nothing offensive - relatively clean for style.
It was fairly well-balanced. Some sweet malt intermingled with some mild hops and plenty of water - though the water was not too prominent for the style. A touch of salt emerged as the drink progressed. Not too bad of a taste from a macro lager from Mexico.
The feel was fairly clean - left a touch of sweetness. It went down relatively easy. Not too bad as a complement to a spicy meal or to cool off on a hot day - Above average for lagers from Mexico (have had quite a few, and have been mostly unimpressed, but this isn't bad.) In the end, nothing great though, and I don't know if it's worth the extra money unless, possibly, for some sort of Mexican party or meal.
