Dos Equis, odd but this is the 1st full beer I ever had, it was at my future father in-laws, 1989-90? I remember getting a headache.

Poured the beer into a lager mug. Pale gold, head non existent, left a little lacing.

Would it be odd to say I thought I smelled a babies diaper with the first wiff? Well off to a great start. Other than that 1st suprise, it has faint to little aroma.

Taste, bitter, dry, metallic. Nothing good, actually I dont know what to say. I guess I could slam this down ice cold on a hot day. I dont normally toss a beer out, but I dont think I have it in me to finish. As it warms it sours. Man not nice. Mouthfeel? Nothing the negatives outweigh everything. The bottle of Titos is calling me from a state just north of the border.

I say leave the XX across the Rio Grande.
