Poured a clear, straw yellow color with a small, thin white head. It smelled of corn, sweet caramel and grain alcohol. I guess it was supposed to taste like tequila, but it was just odd.

"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.
