0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
A German brewed Latin lager, now the end of the world is well and truly upon us!!! From the clear bottle with the crown opener on the base (Just a pity I didn’t have a second bottle of this fine specimen hey!!?). Headless, über thin looking with soda-pop effervescence. Medium gold in colour. Aroma of salty crackers, brine, corn husks and soft mint. Carbonic acid bites the front of the tongue but it is watery in feel and texture past that. Soda water has more character. My palate is a little tired this tie of the year but this had me struggling to grasp a single flavour profile. The salt and corn of the nose all but lost. This wasn’t a beer at all. What is this blaspheme!? Das ist Scheiße! (33cL, BB 11/05/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 cl. completely clear bottle @ home. Procured from ALBO. Drank straight from the bottle because who are we kidding? Looks urine / corn golden, light foam on top once you start drinking, suspicious looking overall. Taste is nasty chemical oily corn syrup, mineral, watery, hop extract bitter, vegetable oil,… Oily, lower carbonation body. This beer is clearly all about lifestyle/marketing/brand/etc. with no attention to flavour etc. This is bit of a European Corona, I do feel like a privileged douche bag drinking this & do get a crazy urge to put on a Tommy Hilfiger Polo so mission accomplished I assume? It must be said that the Mojito & Tequila version were definitely more enjoyable than this even if they still weren’t all that good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear glass bottle at home, 330 ml, poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.7%
Golden yellow colour on the body, crystal clear, with tall white head, minimal retention. Light lacing on the glass, intense activity in it.
Aroma malts, a bit stale, some hay.
Not much on the taste, even less than was I waiting from the aroma. Still stale, light malts and that was about it, plus some metal notes.
Thin body, high carbonation.
Not very good, I enjoyed the Salitos mixes with tequila etc. more.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Just your average "Mexican" lager. I prefer water instead of this diluted lager. Maybe I needed a lime and sombrero to go with it?

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle, supermarket. Pours a thin head on a pale straw body. Scents of grass. Pale taste with hints of alcoholic malts. Low bitterness, watery mouthfeel, faint grainy aftertaste. Non-offensive when well chilled, almost as mineral water.

Lys brun med hvitt fint skum. Smaker og lukter litt søtere enn vann. Litt coronna- sol følelse. Godt drikke i sola....
