3.6/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can poured into an oversized Mexican cerveza goblet. A thin white head that recedes quickly. No lacing, but there is a substantial carbonation activity. Body color is a clear honey golden yellow.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with an interesting hint of chocolate. I know chocolate originates from Central and South America, but I would never suspect it in a Mexican Lager. The taste has a little more spice from the Saaz hops, but the cocoa flavor really dominates for me. Drinking straight from the can intensifies the cocoa flavor

The mouthfeel is a lot heavier than a typical Mexican lager like Corona. Even though there is more body it finishes dry. It is still very easy to drink and I have been enjoying this six pack steadily over the last couple of days.

3.28/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 fl oz. can, with best by date September 11, 2014 printed on the bottom of the can. A new canned offering to me from Ska Brewing Co.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours the typical clear golden yellow straw colored body. Some decent clarity when held to the light. A finger and a half of frothy white foam head. Some spotty strands of lacing. Looks good for what it is.

S - The smell is good for what it is, also - crisp, grainy, grassy, and wheaty. Light lemony pith noticeable.

T - Taste is the same - crisp, grainy, grassy and wheaty. A simple no frills beer experience, but the quality of the ingredients definitely shows when pitted against swill like Bud Light or Miller Genuine Draft.

M - The feel is fluid, crisp, and clean. Lightly grainy aftertaste.

Overall, it's a good drink for what it is, but it's not something I would seek out again. I'm glad I got a can of this as part of a mixed six pack instead of paying the full price. The quality of the ingredients is noticeable, but flavor-wise it's not much above a Miller Lite.
