La Playa Cerveza

This is from Trader Joe's and comes in at 4.6% ABV.  It is, in fact, made in Mexico.

The beer pours pale golden in color with a fizzy and rapidly dissolving head of white foam.  The aroma is wet grain mush, green apples, and another fruity note I can't quite put my finger on.  The taste is like the smell of rotting fruit in a tropical setting, both sweet, sour, alcoholic and slightly putrid all at the same time.  This is an odd beer and not all that great.  It would go best super cold paired with extremely hot and spicy food.
