bouquet: Freshly squashed skunk Taste: Freshly strained skunk juice Aftertaste: "I'll have another in hopes of a quick death!" Please Lord, if you DO strand me on a desert island with 2 Xes at least allow me a tall tree and some strong vine(s)! Have you ever seen what the Colorado River is by the time it reaches Mexico? Remember that along the way Las Vegas has dumped 2 million gallons of effluent into it PER DAY, and several other cities have dumped in also. The corporate farmers in AZ and CA have sucked out most of that to water cattle & crops. Just 100 miles north of Yuma you can walk across the "river". NOW imagine the flavor of that water as what's left of it trickles into the Gulf of California at Baja... NOW THAT'S DOS EQUIS!!!!!!

Vienna it ain't.

I swear every time I taste this is seems different. At times thin, or rich, malty, or not, caramel or burn matchstick. It looks like a Dark Viennese Lager but looks are deceiving. I suppose part of my impression is due to drinking this primarily in restaurants but all of them can't have a slow turnover. At it's best it's malty, toffeeish, caramely with enough hops to notice. Most times it's just disappointing. Out of caution I just don't buy it anymore.

But don't listen to me, you may have better luck.
