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!

Bit of skunkiness on the nose. I may have an older bottle, but it tastes better than it smells. It is marginally better then Corona, but not as good as Carib or Dos Equis. Doesnít really have a whole lot of taste.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 I worry, sometimes, that the collecting aspect of this hobby may be usurping the enjoyment of the beer. I saw this at Krogerís and noticed it was from El Salvador (For those of you who donít speak Spanish, "El Salvador" means "The Salvador"). New country for me! Huzzah! Of course, it was 6-packs only. And it was a foregone conclusion the beer would suck. I knew The Bride would not be particularly pleased that I was spending $7.99 to get a rating. And yet I caved. This cannot be healthy. Oh, and the beer tastes like Cheerios and Alka Seltzer.

The only okay thing about this beer is the aroma. First taste is like any other lager, but than the aftertaste kicks in, bringing this beer down fast. Gave almost the whole bottle away.

Very pale yellow. Clear, with a fizzy, fleeting white head. The aroma is mild hops, which are almost a touch minty. Corn is the dominate "malt" flavor. Soft, not offensive, but not a lot of flavor either.

Bottle. Central American marketing strikes again - a clear bottle mimicking guess which brand. Slight malt aroma. Bright yellow color with slight head. Light corny malt flavor - very watery. Better than Corona but not by much.

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.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2005
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.
