Used this to make mexican beer chili and micheladas (con Ojo Rojo!). Not a fan of the style, but would definitely choose this one over Dos Equis or a Corona if forced.

This beer is extremely smooth. That is an understatement to be honest. I was not sure what to think about this brew as Ska are hit or miss. This beer poured very average out of the can, with no distinct hints or aromas. I thought it would be average, but it wasn't! This beer has an extremely crisp and pure taste to it and a great mouthfeel as it goes down smoothly. The taste is of malted hops and barley, and I would definitely give props to Ska for this one, even though I haven't been as kind to them in the past. Cool name, cool can, awesome name, smooth taste... What more could you ask for?

Yellow color with an almost inexistent fluffy head that vanishes quickly.
Initial weird aroma like a concentrated adjunct lager with fusel alcohols, corn and some lemon. Hello? Should I sip this? Later improves a bit.
Predominant flavor of acid lemon and a mild corn syrup.
Light body with good carbonation.
I hated, but it does deliver the promise, a Mexican lager, which is not necessarily a good thing... Anyway I gave some extra points given the strong lemon hint mimicking a Sol/Corona with a slice of it.

Backlog of reviews from the last week in CO, KS and KY. This was reviewed fully to my phone at time of consumption in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.

A- Golden bodied ale is poured from the 12oz bottle with a clear appearance to a goblet. The white head rises to one finger with a foamy texture. Pretty good head retention as the cap dies to a puffy ring and some clouds.

S- Saaz hops come to mind first with the lager yeast being a close second. Spicy, herbal and floral Noble hop character with pale fruit esters and fresh bread beyond that. Slight malts.

T- Pale fruit notes from the lager yeast pick it up more here as well a definite cracked pale malt and cereal grain sweetness. Deep bready quality. Saaz remains the focus but not by a ton bringing spicy, grassy and herbal qualities.

MF- Light bodied overall with a crisp fizzy and lightly frothy texture. Carbonation comes in on the high side with a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Saaz and lager yeast atop a pale cereal grain malt base. Spicy, grassy and bready with a crisp refreshing feel.
