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!

12 oz. The faintest color of pale lager I have seen, with a sizzling head tries to last. Aroma is skunk-sprayed tire, with some faint honey and dry grass. Taste leans toward nothingness, with some touches of skunk, crackers, lemongrass and honey. Light, watery, and pretty well balanced. Very well may be the worst beer I have ever had. Not sure though, as I try to put these kinds of things out of my head.

Pours pale gold with a quickly fading white head. No skunky notes but not much else, either. Faint floral and grain flavors. The best thing about this beer is the sea turtle on the bottle.

The aroma is like latex with corn and alcohol. The appearance is pale gold with a head that fades to nothing. The taste is like the aroma with a slightly sweet quality but mostly dry. The palate is thin but right or the style. Overall this is a typical south of the border type lager. Pass.

Finhead (1301) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
A very, pale yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is extremely skunky. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. The taste is watery and bland.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Very light yellow but not quite white. Good head. Only a slightly skunky aroma. Light, drinkable, but too much like water. One redeeming value is itís a quart of beer for under $2.50.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Pours a clear gold with minimal head, fizzy white that lasts 2 sec. Aroma nice and strong corn sweet grassy, faint flowers, and lemon. Flavor over carbonated, all bubbles, tastes like apples, watery, with dry finish, some grass notes. Very different flavor, but overcarbonation really diminshes quality.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Light golden. Quickly vanishing white head. Light bubbling. Old malty grain aroma thatís just starting to turn. Full barley and corn flavor. Good beer bite. Livestock feed finish with sugar and corn flavors.

(32oz torpedo clear bottle) clear very pale yellow with lasting bubbles. Nose is very skunky, sugar, and faded grain. Taste is also VERY skunky/funky, grain, earth and buttery. Soft carbonation. Nasty.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. As soon as I popped the top on this one, I could smell the skunk. Poured golden with a white head. Aroma of skunk and corn. The flavor had grain, corn, light caramel, and light skunk. Medium body and slightly sweet.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this huge clear-bottled beer. The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a wonderful mix of skunk spray and corn. The flavor is somehow just as bad if not worse. I get a lot of adjuncts and a lot of skunk. This is one of the skunkiest beers I have tried. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
