Pale Yellow/Gold Color with White Ring. Sudsy, Sweet Malt/Grains..Little Skunky. Clearly, Pale Lagers Don’t Have a ’Competitve Spirit’.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Leon Pub - 12 oz bottle. Pale golden pour, thin, pithy white head. Chemically aroma. Cool looking painted bottle with a big sailfish on it. Typical Central American lager with some boiled corn, cardboard and metal. Hint of honey sweetness redeems it somewhat. Thinnish and slightly harsh mouthfeel. Overall, quite bland though and not very refeshing.

Picked a 6 pk of 12oz bottles while driving thru Richmond, VA. The clerk said it was better than Corona (which is not saying much) so I decided to give a try. Looks and smells just like a Corona but it has more flavor. It had lots of carbonation typical of latin beers but not a bad beer at all.

i thought this one would be like a Sol or a Corona, but it wasn’t. I could be that this beer is a Corona with water!

Hmm, not terrible. Sits somewhere between gold and straw, and pushes a little towards the gold end of the spectrum. Modest head fades out fast. Lightly sulfury skunky aroma, but it seems to contain both mercaptan and a spicy/sulfury saaz hop nose. Flavor is surprisingly clean and malt accented, with a touch of a grainy alcoholic finish. Not overly watery per style, but let’s not say it has body. The finish becomes weirdly tart however, and that’s a bit off-putting. I got through 3/4 of it without much effort, then the sink began calling for me.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Lets go to Mexico, oops, I mean Guatemala? Last bottle of a case that I picked up at the Beer store in Moon. Clear 12 oz bottle that has a quality silk screen on it, it is not a paper label, something you don’t see much lately. Photo of a swordfish breaking the surface. In the clear bottle I can see it is a typically light yellow colored pale yellow american beer. Pop the lid for a slight skunk cabbage aroma. Settles down to a yeasty aroma in the glass, perhaps even a bit citrusy. Very good showing of bubbles rising but does not qualify as lacing, just good carbonation. Taste is not offensive, typical of decent lagers. It does have a hint of bitterness on the palate, but like an ale. The alky shows thru at points during my session, but just barely, it is not in your face. Finish is odd, begins with a nice american lager finish then immediately fades to something that has an ingredient missing. Perhaps it is designed into the recipe and it is to purposely have that flavor as to differentiate it from the others. Not as good as Carlesburg or Schmidts but better than henninger and much better than king lager.

Beerdedone (2488) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus, well atleast it is another country rating for me, because this beer isnt worth its weight. Gold pour, no head, corn aroma, need i go on.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn, and grain. The flavor is corn, sweet malts, and no life what so ever. Thin body, if it even has any body. bad stuff.
