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 fisherman’s village. It’s our hope that you too will experience the good fortune of the "Caguama". Salud!

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.

(946ml bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of skunk’s spray. Flavor of grass, malt, and skunkiness. Horrid.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Bottle pours VERY light golden water in my glass with a tiny white head. Scent is corn chips, taste is the same with carbonation.....

Rating number 100 for this bad boy. Straight from a big ass 32 oz glass bottle...oh yeah! Clear yellow color. Aroma has lots of corn, not much different than any typical Mexican lager actually. Flavor is much the same as a corona. Light, skunky hops, corn, sweetness. I actually thought it would be a lot worse than it is.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2010
12 oz Bottle -- Pours very pale yellow with a small ring of white head. Faint aromas of hay, grass, and some skunk. Lively carbonation with a very thin palate.

Appearance: Looks near identical to the Caguama Light, so, what the heck, let’s just copy/paste that here: Pours out a clear, fairly light yellow body with an airy, dainty-looking, white head. Smell: Ill-boding nose smelling a bit strong of skunk. I’ll watch some Star Trek: TNG while it wafts away. Eventually settles into a meagerly grainy extra pale malt nose with some weak notes of floral-toned hops. Taste: A sweet taste of cereal grains with a modest backing of corn. Light floral hop character with a thin measure of bitterness. Dry, clean, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Acceptable, sufficient even! When tasted back-to-back against the Caguama Light, the standard Caguama is a skosh more crisp and a bit less corny, both pluses for lagers in my book.

Pours with a clear light brown hue with no head Aroma is of yeast, funk, and poop Flavor is of hay, funk, skunk, and turtle (?) Out of a 32 oz bottle Light mouthfeel, lively carbonation.

Cybercat (2989) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Pours a clear, wan yellow with a white head that quickly dissipates - hardly looks like beer at all. Aroma is a bit fruity and has a strong skunky overtone. Flavor is just strong and just malty enough to pass for beer. Texture is smooth and a little tingly. Nothing to write home about - but I was willing to give El Salvadorian beer a fair shake.

Standard fake pils. Watery. Piss yellow. Skunky smell. Not sure how a nasty Mexican lager is different from a nasty American lager.

12oz bottle. tasted simultaneously with caguama light and SP. the room wreaks of skunk. not sure who the culprit is but i’m going to assume it’s all of them. pours a hazy light gold under a small frothy white head. lots of lively bubbles. skunky aroma with a bit of must. flavor is drab and tasteless really. a bit of puke flavor. light body. sharp carbonation.
