What the brewers say

“Troy Guard is a Denver chef with a Mexican restaurant so badass we can’t even put the name on this can. While enjoying his food, we had a crazy idea: brew a Mexican-style lager with corn, natural lime juice, and just a hint of salt. Salud amigos!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light biscuit sweetness up front, with some floral spice. Strong lime notes, like a margarita, with lemongrass and light earthiness. Some yeast, with moderate sulfur.”

Flavor: “Strong citrus lime flavor comes through up front, with a saltiness that adds some complexity. The bread-like malt character gives way to the sweet lime and citrus notes. Light hops spiciness, with a light sourness, almost like a gose. Moderate carbonation with a medium body that finishes with a heavy lime note that continues to grow after the sip.”

Overall: “This is a refreshing, citrusy lager, very much like a light margarita. Could be a fruit beer or a gose, but is more in line with some of the flavored German beers geared toward nonbeer/cocktail people.”
