Pennsylvania

2.68/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A 940 mL caguama purchased at the Mega outside of Bucerias.

A: The lager is pale and yellow, a straw color that seems paler than just about every other beer I've had this week. Small patches of lace are slowly drying.

S: Little nose, if any, wafts out of the glass. A hint of corn, some sweetness, but not much else.

T: The taste seems to parallel the nose, offering up corn and not much else. Grains and adjuncts drive the flavor, offering little else. A sickly sweetness lingers in the mouth.

M: Familiar? More like a haunting nightmare. Much like Corona Extra, this is an uninviting lager.

D: I split the caguama with three people and am luckier for it.

***

A bottle served with lunch at La Palma in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Lime promptly discarded.

A: The lager is fizzy and yellow, exactly as intended. A small ring of white head sits contentedly.

S: The nose is mild, highlighted by a sweet corn aroma. The nose is best when cold, as it tends to mask the adjuncts.

T: Again, the lager is best when cold, delivering a refreshing blast that lacks substance. As it warms, the corn and pale malts become more evident. As a result, the lager heads downhill. So drink it while it's cold! Hops? Someone forgot to add 'em. A good hot weather beer.

M: The fizziness of the beer is a plus, removing the bland flavors on each sip.

D: It's a hot day out, so I won't say no to another.
