0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This was Buck_Dich's idea. Pours very pale yellow, nearing waterlike appearance. The agressive pour left a mighty head, then I happened to blink and it was gone. The aroma smacked me in the face from about three feet away. Acrid odor of malt gone bad. Sharp malts in the flavor, my stomach doesn't like it much. A rush of bitter hops at the end. Not the good kind of hops either. Overall, it's a beer that I'll never have the "pleasure" of drinking again.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz clear glass bottle with painted label with a turtle on it.
The appearance is pretty bad..urine looking..with a rather bubble head..real unattractive.
This beer smelled awful..as soon as i opened the cap..it just stank bad..not appetizing.
taste is weak but i was releaved it was not as abad as the stench this gives off...just the tatse of cheap corn syrup really.
Not too great in the mouth weak and watery at best disturbingly cloying at worst.
not drinkable at all for me down their with its mentor Corona..

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crummy, watered-down taste, plus a bit of a skunky smell and flavor. Better off drinking Busch. Cool bottle though.

It's what it is, a light, crisp Latin beer. I think it's head and hoppiness rate it higher than the Sol's, Tecate's, XX and Corona's of the world though.

This is a cool looking bottle. Sadly, the beer isn't quite as cool. At least I can say I had one from El Salvador.

Hands down one of the nastiest beers I've had in a while. On a whim because it was on sale at Kroger I bought this Corona look-and-sound alike hoping to be pleasantly surprised. Instead I was treated to watery yellow liquid that couldn't pass muster as beer if it was poured into a vat of Guinness. Absolutely putrid!

Strong points: cool bottle, inexpensive, is probably cold. Nothing interesting to taste or say.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 A nice, refreshing summer beer with a really nifty sea turtle on the bottle. Affordable and tasty,
this is my favorite everyday south-of-the-border beer... did i mention about the cool blue turtle on the bottle? :-)

Skunk nose. Skunk flavor. Better than corona though.Probably good if you are mowing the sand in the desert in july though.
