Out of Cervecera Mexicana, the best thing thing that La Playa has going for it is that it’s sold at Trader Joe’s. The second best thing – as a friend who gave it to me after football pointed out – is that you can mispronounce it and say "Play on Playa". And it’s always good to feel like a player sometimes.
As far as the ratings, this beer is better than Corona, and maybe on par with Miller Lite or Tecate. It looks like straw, smells like nothing – or piss, should you choose to smell your own and compare. I suppose there’s also a nice taste of corn in there, which honestly kinda hit the spot in the moment. There’s not much else.
It’s watery feel and hydrating drinkability made for a nice can of beer post football. And, it’s better than Corona. I swear it.
