Cervecería Mexicana's Dia De Los Muertos: Death Rides a Pale Horse Blonde

type: blonde ale
origin: Tecate, Mexico
price: $7/6-pack of 330ml
ABV: 5.6%
NSP: 17.8

My first experience with CM's craft beer--their IPA--forced me to give it the hose.  And, because that was my first experience of CM, I went into this tasting with essentially negative expectations: this is going to be dogshit, again I thought.

I'm pleasantly surprised though!  It starts of with some nice, mild "beer" aromas, followed by light, biscuity malt flavors, and finishing with clean, mild-yet-floral hops.  It's refreshing too.

There's not much else to say because, well, it's not that interesting of a beer; but, with nearly the same NSP as most macrobrew, I'd gladly buy this again, especially given the flavor/quality.

A note to CM: can you please shorten up your damn titles?  Nobody cares, and it makes the title extra bloated.  Well, maybe someone does care, but it ain't me.
