Zima XXX Hard Black Cherry

Coors Brewing Co

USA

I have a new favorite malternative beverage. I recall original Zima tasting like crap. This does not. This literally tastes like Black Cherry soda. It's excellent. Well, that's it for the drink. Now, the label: In very small lettering, it states "Ale in TX". Instead of calling this a beer, they now call it an ale. Hoo-whee!!! This almost qualifies Texas as Most Retarded State in the Union, unfortunately, Georgia holds that honor in perpetuity. And people make fun of New Jersey... Pfft!

This latest offering from Zima is nothing more than alcoholic Black Cherry soda. In other words, it is a screaming call to drink for college girls who wish to drink for hours, get higher than a kite, and not have to taste anything offensive (at least, not before they leave the bar). As for the whole "Ale in TX" thing, I have no idea what they're doing. Sure, Georgia is full of dummies, but at least we don't call this "ale." And while I didn't get the stiffy that Kris did over this offering, I did think it was pretty good.
