A week back a box appeared on the doorstep of BSP Headquarters with two Mission Brewery beers in it. I had heard tales of their new “cannon” sized cans but it did not mean the initial sight was less surprising. Since it came in such a big can (1 quart, aka 32oz), I expected the Conquistador to be huge considering it hails from San Diego. But to my surprise, this was a quaffable and spot on XPA. Very well balanced. You get wheat notes, hints of citrus (mostly orange) and a parting shot of bitterness that fades off nicely and doesn’t damage the tongue. And it is a lovely light orange color as well with a light fruit aroma.
You could be selfish and drink this yourself since the ABV is a low 4.8%. But I would suggest sharing with a friend or having 1/2 in the first half of whatever game you are watching and then the rest after halftime. This size makes them good for tasting events too. You could get a group of 8 together and everyone could have a solid 4ozs. Wow, just dropped some math on ya’.
You can ask my wife, but when I love a TV show, I will re-watch it and currently I am re-watching Season 1 of Dexter. You can make a plausible point that the show has gone on too long and gotten a little trippy at times but re-meeting the characters in earlier times is fun and reminds you where each person was at when this started.
