COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend has it the fishermen of Central America sought the Great Loggerhead Turtle in warm tropical waters. It was tribal belief that this powerful turtle, also known as the "Caguama", symbolized good fortune for the fishermanís village. Itís our hope that you too will experience the good fortune of the "Caguama". Salud!

I am amazed at how many of you fools buy discounted beer. It is cheap because it is OLD. If you donít mind bad taste just to get a buzz, then go for it, BUT donít rate the beer if it is a warm shelf, $2 bucks a sixer, deal ya canít refuse! Cheap skates are so stupid. NOW, this beer. I got some from the distributor and I was very impressed! Lots of malt character with a fresh corn note. Not much in the hops area which gives it a sweet taste but very clean and refreshing. What is the best beer in the world? A fresh one!!

Skunky without any flavor. I was attracted to the turtle on the bottle and I guess that is the best part of the beer.

Damnit, another Miller beer disguised as something else. I hate getting here and finding that out... Nevertheless, my rating: Golden-yellow body. Spase white head. Smell is water. Decent mouthfeel, but not much flavor. Just a little sour then sweet. Afteraste is water, again. All in all, just watery crap.

People around here in Arizona seem to be bringing this stuff around as a "cheap substitute for Corona". Well, sorry friends but Corona isnít good and this is even worse. Yellow, with sickly sweet and corn syrup type flavor and a horrible foamy and gross finish. Have had bottle and can and yuck. Couldnít choke it down while shoving lime and salt down itís throat. Sorry guys, thatís my rating.

Poured light yellow with a smallish head. Sunky corn aroma. Flavor is light corn with a very watery body. This is a easy drinking beer that would be ok super cold on a hot Arizona day. Bad ..but drinkable.

Was at the store and the wife spotted this one on sale for a buck and change. While playing cards last night decided to bust this one open. Man talk about skunky beer. Aroma was like you had just hit a skunk on the road. Oil film covered the top after the head disappated. But the amazing thing is it went down smooth on the palate.

flute glass / poured from a cool clear bottle that has a label of a turtle swimming in an area of water in el salvador. the turtle looks like itís peeing, and i swear i see a little villager scooping water with a bucket behind the turtle. the poor man must be thinking, "for i will piss in bucket, senor and senorita people. i will dump this into the wort. hahaha." or so the story goes. well, itís not really turtle and villager piss, and i donít think this is absolutely horrible. the appearance is below average, the palate is for no appropriate reason buttery and oily, the aroma and flavor isnít offensive... thereís just nothing really here, and itís artificial--very light in soul; buttery, artificial, oddly sweet, a little prickly... meh. mix some turtle blood in this or something; make it interesting, damn.

Good deal but bad taste. Flavor isnít the kind of pilsener im used to now and just real watered down. Used to pick up 32ís and 12packs of these all the time and now im reminded why i donít anymore. Its only if you wanna get a buzz going and wash the mexican food down.

This is kind of like Coronaís evil bastard step child. This has a combination aroma, of that shit that you put your combs into in a barbershop and the stuff that you use in a permanent. Yeah, this is really foul beer.
