This beer is hands down my favourite beer, it is Paddy’s Pick for the Greatest Beer Of All Time and one of the reasons that I started Suburban Brewing with Stu.
The Good: EVERYTHING! No but seriously this beer is amazing in every possible way, from the moment you pop the top or crack the can you are indulged with a symphony of smells; from the fragrant smell of the hops, combined with the coriander and that very citrusy zest of the limes (seriously they zest so many limes to put in this brew it is easy to pick up on the nose). Combine that with the flavours you are greeted with, damn son! It is as refreshing as standing on a beach on a warm day getting showered with the mist of crashing waves. You may ask how that translates to taste, well it is a gentle beer with regards to carbonation, allowing the flavours of the limes and coriander to be picked up (coriander haters it is noticeable but not overpowering), which means that you get this sweet yet almost savoury aftertaste that lingers just long enough for you to say “I need another”.
The Bad: With regards to the taste and smell? None. Price wise it is a little on the steep side, but that being said it is easily way better off tap, so if anything go hit up the brewery in Spotswood to try it straight from the source.
Enjoyment: This is what Mexican beers should taste like, it is refreshing, you associate it with summer and hot days and without doubt it challenges Corona’s tag line of “from where you’d rather be” without hesitation (for the record Two Birds Brewery do not use this tag line nor do they compare it to a Corona, this is my own words to compare the feeling you get when drinking this beer). Pair this with comfort food, Mexican food (fish tacos and this is possibly the tastiest meal of the week!) or even have it during a drinking session (seriously the more you have the better it tastes). I mean to put it in perspective as to how much I loved this beer, I got married at the Brewery (you read that right), needless to say that I indulged in quite a few Taco beers that night.
