I used to love this stuff when I was a kid in my early 20's, before I started experimenting with craft beer. I haven't had one in over 10 years, and saw a 16oz can on sale at the gas station and picked it up. After spoiling myself with a decade of sampling some of the finest beers in the world today, I didn't expect to care for it nowadays, and I was right. This is just your typical, lousy, run-of-the-mill American adjunct. Piss yellow, almost no head, and an even flatter flavor. This is even worse than Corona. It's basically Rolling Rock with a Mexican themed label. I let my desire for a little nostalgia rob me of $1.49. It won't be happening again.
