I was genuinely offended by this beer. I honestly do not understand how beers like this will always be around, but respectable microbreweries struggle to keep their head above water. This ’beer’ was like Guatemalan toilet water, Mexican tap water, moldy spam, and shit all rolled into one bottle of hell. I had to rate the appearance one point higher than I should have because it appeared very beautiful when it went down my sink. My girlfriend’s dog will eat anything from feces to styrofoam and he even thought twice about lapping the puddle of this swill from the patio when I poured some of it....he did end up finishing the little puddle, but he wasnt jumping up for more like he does with most beers. Mike and Simon (the dog) will never have anything to do with this beer again.

This was bad. It looked weak and yellow, it smelled and tasted of corn with a slight bit of skunk. Who knows how many foul things went into this beer!

Light bodied boring industrial lager.

Another new beer found at Tacos El Asador. I swear, I’ve found more new beers there than the Esplanade Bier Markt. This is a corn-accented lager with heavy adjunct taste, a little bit of hop and little else. Reminds me of Labatt’s Blue in the way that they make a light lager taste kind of heavy (in a bad way).
