Dos Equis RadlerDos Equis Radler
Notes: Radler beer type was created by the German Franz Kugler when in his bar Natural lemonade mixed with beer to cool to all its customers, this blend of natural ingredients has been a success since its inception in the early twentieth century. Now in Mexico, Dos Equis beer with lemonade resulting in a doubly refreshing experience.

1.6/5  rDev +6%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Consumed on 20Jul15.
LOOK: Pours with a half finger's worth of foam that shrivels down into a line of foam within 15 seconds. Has an extremely cloudy pale yellow color. Bubbles are so scarce, that I can count them as they rise. Lacing is pretty much absent. Whatever lacing there is, has about as much cohesion as water has to glass.
SMELL: Strong aromas of artificial and oversugared lemonade combine with mild alkaseltzer (yes, I said alkaseltzer) and lime peel aromas. The lemonade aromas, although artificial, have a mild tartness to them that is practically overpowered by the vast amounts of sugar. The lime peel aromas bring a displeasing bitterness to an already terrible smell. Hints of spicy hops and sweet bread can also be detected, and are sadly, the only thing telling me that this is a beer.
TASTE: Upon first sip, strong oversugared and artificial lemonade flavors horribly clash with mild and bitter lime peel flavors. Just like in the smell, the lemonade flavors have a tartness to them that lies within the shadows of the overbearing sweetness. For the second and final act of this monstrosity, strong alkaseltzer flavors along with a hint of spicy hop flavors immediately trail. The sweet bread aromas that were detected by the nose are completely undetectable as flavors.
FEEL: Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and ends with an extremely crisp finish. The sourness from the lemonade flavors playfully agitate the tongue.
NOTE: Honestly, the refreshingly crisp finish is the ONLY thing saving this beer from receiving a rating of pure garbage. I honestly can't picture anybody enjoying this. Maybe if you were literally dying from thirst and this was the only thing around to drink. I have had my share of foul beers, but this takes the cake.

Awful mix of beer and soda, taste is absolutely artificial lemon and it´s very hard to find the beer character in this drink. This is not for beer drinkers, more for soda drinkers. Maybe kids that are just legal to drink.
