Oh swell. That Dos Equis Amber tap turns out to have Special Lager coming from it. I mean, no, neither option is a good one, but dammit, I do not need a pint of fizzy yellow DESL in front of me at this point in the evening. Yellow-gold color with a slight white head. Smells like shitty lunchtime street corn the vendor has left over from the night before. Tastes the same, with an all-encompassing buttery yeasty blech dominating the flavor. Sweet. Unpleasant. Shoulda asked for a lime.

355ml can tahanks to Benzai. Apperance: A clear golden with a small quickly diminishing head. Aroma: cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones.
Taste: moderate sweet watery, cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones.
Low carbonation, thin watery body.
Simply lacks the crispyness, and becomes one of so many industrial lagers.

Skunk bottle. Pours medium golden with a decent white foam subsiding average slow. Scent is skunky lager. Taste is tinny and light pale lager with light notes of apple. Finish is slightly sticky. Poor.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 From a bottle. Pale lager with hint of malty flavour. Frothy mouthfeel but nice. Refreshing when cold. Enough body to be interesting, despite a faint hint of something strange like mouthwash but with a pleasant background palate of whisky malt. Overall good.

Bottle from the Emperor Cambridge. Drunk in good company. Shame about the beer. Light lager yellow with a tightish white head. Smells very malty with a hint of ... paprika maybe. Stale malty notes with an odd grassy peppery note. Long sweet aftertaste. A mess even by macro lager standards. Boo hiss.
