2015-01-30. Crisp pale yellow body with a nice white head. Aroma of slightly rough cereal pale malt. Flavour is similar, rough grainy pale malt, earthy notes in the aftertaste. Average to light bodied palate, good carbonation. Poor. 4/3/3/3/7 Can shared by Radek.

Yellow beer with a fizzy white head. Grainy nose with a metallic note. I drank a ton of this in Panama, and it is a great beer for the heat and weather. Light beer with a thin malty sweetness. Clean and refreshing. A fine macro lager.

A gift from one of my students. New country rating! Pale straw colour, thin head. Light aroma of very light graininess. Firm bitterness and a touch of green apple. Itís a very simple, pale lager. Pretty inoffensive.

Perhaps the better tasting of the more commercial beers in Panama, slight toast perceptible but nothing that exalts this beer.

Pours pale straw with a short white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is grainy biscuity malt, corn, faint herbal and grassy hops. (3/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (3/10) Light bodied, prickly to medium carbonation. (2/5) Not a good beer, at all - standard crap adjunct lager. Though it reminds me of drinking Cristal in Cuba, so thereís that... (6/20)

Can (in Panama City airport). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain, husks), trace hops (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation. Between this, Atlas, and Panama Lager, this is the closest to being drinkable, but itís still a long long way from enjoyable.

I lived in Panama off and on for ~8 years and tried all of the local beers. This is pretty much similar to Atlas. Not a very good flavor and a slightly bitter and yeasty aftertaste. It isnít the worst beer Iíve ever tasted but not really refreshing or enjoyable. Try it just so you can see the similarities amongst the local beers and compare them with their American equivalents.

Can to glass. Pale yellow, soapy head. Hay/straw aroma, mild yeast and small lemon peel. Decent aroma. Taste is bad. Bland as hell.
