I find it interesting that breweries are getting into styles that are typically panned by the craft beer crowd. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but let’s see how it was.
Style: American Adjunct Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Con el sol en los ojos, no veíamos bien, pero tú estas más cerca de él en este momento que la mayoría de la gente tendrá la suerte de estar. Wait, sorry about that. The sun was in our eyes and we did not get a good look, but you are closer to him right now than most will ever have the good fortune to be. Who is El Sully? Grab a can of this Mexican-Style lager, head to the nearest beach, even if it’s imagined, and perhaps he’ll come to you. El Sully (the beer) is available this Fall inside our new 12-can variety pack. El Sully (the legend) is a little harder to find.”
Random: Val and I haven’t watched a bunch of things on the DVR, so now that we’re watching them, they have old political ads.
The beer poured with a two finger, pure white head. It went away quickly, but still left some lacing on the glass. The body was clear and straw yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had grain with some tin along with a small amount of hop spice. The flavor was light with the same grain that was in the nose. It had a touch of metal and the same earthy hop spice that was in the nose. The body was very light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick, grainy finish. This can was $1.67, which came to $.14 per ounce. This beer was simple, but I believe that was the intent. I would have this over a Corona any day.
