One of the few "margarita" beverages that doesn't taste sickeningly sweet. If you think this is sweet, you haven't tried the Bud Light line of products. Tastes more like a lager-hybrid as the label says than a malt beverage.

The creator of The CANQuest (tm) was in Chicago for the umpteenth time at the end of SY 2014-'15 and people scoffed at him since the plan was to return for today's GTMW, but I struck while the iron was hot. It was a good thing that I did as work precluded me from going again this year.

From the CAN: "The Original Dos-A-Rita"; Sweetened with 100% Agave nectar"; "Imported from Mexico"; "Introducing The Original Dos-A-Rita"; "Handcrafted in Mexico, the Dos-A-Rita combines two traditional Mexi[CAN] favorites: the Margarita and Dos Equis Lager. Sweetened with 100% Agave Nectar, this great tasting blend of authentic margarita flavors and lager makes a perfectly balanced and satisfying [CAN]bination. Served cold over ice, it is the perfect [CAN]pliment to a summer day or an interesting night."

I Crack!ed open this monster of a 24-fl. oz. CAN, but I could not initiate an inverted Glug due to its size. My aggro pour netted a fizzy finger of eggshell-white head with limited retention. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity. Nose smelled like the little bottle of ReaLime that my maternal grandmother kept in her reefer when I was a kid. She was a hardcore teetotaler so I am sure that she used it for cooking. Mouthfeel was medium, but sticky. The taste was very lime-like, but it was also as sweet as it could possibly get. Jesus! I felt diabetic shock with every sip.The finish was semi-dry, thanks to the lime juice, but it left me with a sticky, CANdy-like feeling in my mouth. Final tally = no bueno!
