A 330ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Feb 2015. Acquired recently from a bargain store. The label mentions lime, mint and tequila - presumably this 'beer' is supposed to resemble a mojito.
A: Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A crystal-clear pale gold colour with light carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that hangs around for a minute or two before disappearing.
S: Aroma of mint with hints of lime, sugar/sweetener, faint malt and a twinge of stewed leaves. Decidedly minty.
T: Tastes of sweet mint and lime. There's a hint of weak malt in the background, along with subtle stewed leaves/veggies. Sugary in character, with a faintly harsh finish.
M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and a thin, watery body. Slightly astringent; dries the palate. Aftertaste of sweetener, mint and lime, followed by an acrid quality in the background.
O: A vile artificial concoction - possibly worse than the original Desperados. It's very minty; in fact the aromatic resemblance to a real mojito is striking. Looks like a regular macro lager, however the aroma and flavour are seriously sweet and minty with lime to balance. Little 'beer' character to speak of. Watery body. Some mild off-notes in the background (probably the sweetener). Ideal if you hate beer, otherwise I'd recommend giving it a wide berth.
