Pa'Michela = Bad Mojo

Since there's talk of beer in my main forum, I thought I'd mention a failed tasting experiment I did recently. I'm a pretty forgiving guy when it comes to unusual flavors and combinations but this was really not cool by me. When I bought this bottle of Pa'Michela at the grocery store, I thought it was some kind of oddball beer for kids or something, but Rachel read the Spanish (she's better at that than me) and warned me that it was actually a beer additive.

Ok, that's probably not so bad I figured, maybe it's like a Mexican shandy (half beer and half soda or lemonade) or something. But no! It's vile! It's pretty much the worst tasting beer variant I've ever had — you're supposed to add a couple capfuls of it to enhance the flavor of your favorite beer, but it literally tastes like pouring soy sauce into beer. Now, if I was using it for grilling kebabs or something, maybe that would work, but I couldn't even swallow a single mouthful… the stuff is truly revolting.

So a warning to readers: don't put soy sauce (or Pa'Michela) in your beer unless you're trying to break your drinking habit. Jay is flying in tonight… I had Jordan and Jon both taste it and their reviews were just as bad as mine, so he's going to escape the taste test.

    I find Pamichela tasty, perhaps you don’t know anything about Micheladas.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
