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!

Smells skunky, alcoholic and watered down. Tastes very watery, kind of like the runoff you get from a bag of ice at the grocery store, with that dirty metallic flavor. As far as cheap beer goes though, its more tolerable than most, and Iíll probably buy it for beer pong purposes.

Seems lightly skunky. Brassy gold color with a light white head that filmed. Thin to medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Not too sure about skunk; could be a strange veg. Some hints of honey. Virtually no bitter in the finish. Guess itís ok, it just bears no relationship to my concept of a pilsener. At least as good as Bud; could be better.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 5, 2007
Nose of grass and yeast, very neutral. Pours a very pale sparkling gold. The white frothy fluffy head is mostly diminishing and leaves light lace. The flavor is very non-descript; probably the mildest beer Iíve ever tasted. The light watery body is soft to flat. It must be very hot indeed in El Salvador.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2007
Smells like sweet grainy adjuncts. Body is a watery yellow, almost urine like. No head at all. The grain tastes a little honey like. The beer is also somewhat crisp, but I cant get over the adjuncty taste. However it is better than pretty much every light american beer that there is. It is very refreshing too. I can drink about 15 of these in a sitting.

Clear pale yellow body with a frothy white head. Dry honey and grassy hops aroma. Sweet honey flavor with a light grassy background.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 23, 2006
In the bottle from Bakerís. Pale yellow with an alka-seltzer white head. Skunk-ola aroma from the combination of clear bottle and grocery store sterilizing fluorescent lights. No better or worse than the other clear-bottle Central American swill. Perhaps it should be named Gag-u-mama?

I like this beer. I got a 30 pack at Ralphs for $12.99. Canít beat that. If you put a lime in it, itís better than Corona. If you donít have a lot of money, you want this beer. i think it tastes good, a little skunky but I like that for some reason.

This is better than arriba but not better than corona, less bitters...For the price this beer is good, but also lacks in the taste department, good but not great! What other beers come from el salvador?

TheBeerGod (5165) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Clear bottle. Straw yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Itís gone after a few blinks of the eye. Nose smacks of stewed veggies and skunky hops. I let it sit out and smell it after it warms a bit. Itís still dreadful. taste is slightly better. Lots of sweet cereal notes, corn syrup and seltzer water. Body is super thin and as light as light gets. Carbonation is pure fizziness. Finishes with more sweet malts, corn syrup and wet grains.
