"Interesting" beer. Or, is it really a beer?
Wouldn't diss on this beer too much, even though I wouldn't say it's recommended. Overall quality is definitely poor-ish but still could drink this casually. I don't think there is any problem with this as a "soda" drink. As a beer it indeed is poor, or almost worthless in that sense.

Summary: If you intend to drink this you must approach with the idea in mind that this is NOT a beer but just a fun twisted soda drink. If you do that, I guess you could enjoy this like I do.

This is an abomination of a beer. Poor quality lager, too sweet with the added foulness of cheap tequila. Whoever came up with this wants their head looking at. Unsurprisingly this is not available in Mexico. They drink their beers and tequila separately, as they should. This beer is all gimmick, and zero quality.

It looks like your average beer, nice gold clear look. It smells like lime basically your average radler beer , very sweet and lemony with an unknown smell which I suppose of the tequila. It tastes very sweet, lime, bit of a lager taste. It reminds me of the many radlers I have tasted in my live but much stronger, you can taste the alcohol. It doesn't at all remind me of any other beer I know. It is a fuzzy carbonate taste, quite pleasant but a bit to carbonated for a beer almost like a soda.
Overall I would recommand this drink but not as a beer. It has a nice taste but it does not remind me of a beer. They market this as a tequila flavored beer but I don't taste the tequila nor do I taste a beer. It's quite a nice drink on a nice summer's day but not if you think you open a ordinary beer. It's a nice alcoholic beverage but not a nice beer.
