poured from bottle to sam adams beer glass at 46 degrees.

I have tasted this stuff many times but never tried to describe the flavor and experience of drinking it...here goes

I am amazed at how clear this beer is. Pale, light yellow. Even after aggressive pour the alka seltzer head is gone fast. The bottle and glass is 2 1/2 feet from me and I smell it. Lots of carbonation, but it dwindles fast.

I have always in the past drank this from a bottle, hence missing a lot of the smells...probably a good thing. The smell is sour skunky. Smells like wet tile.

The first sip reveals some surprise. First, it tastes very different coming from a glass. Second, the taste is not horrible. Its weak and corny, but it is gone fast and leaves nothing on the tongue. I get the essence of silage(cattle feed). That sounds worse than it is.

The mouth is crisp. Very light and loose. Spritzer water.

I would be a damn hypocrite if I said it did not have at least a decent drinkability factor. I have put a lot of these away in recent years.

This is an american macro that uses the tagline of being mexican, hoping you will get visions of beaches, bikinis, and vacations down south. To be honest, on a hot beach or on any vacation I could drink these over and over.

A lot of people drink this with a lime wedge, but I have always thought it was trend that lended to the "tropical" feel of this brand. Then again maybe the acid from the citrus cuts some of the undesirable tastes, or at least dulls them. If I review with a lime and it is different, I will edit.
