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!

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.

If youíre low on money, than look no farther; Caguama is the beer for you. I can get it at Ralphs for only $13.99 a 30 pack! Thatís cheaper than any beer I know of including Pabts, Natural ice or Miller Highlife. The best part about it though is if you look closely the turtle has 7 leafs on its shell, all of which have 9 leaves on them. Ring a bell? Allot of marijuana strands also have nine leaves. Caguama also taste a little bit like a hit of dank chronic (youíll notice after having a few). In addition, the can is yellow and blue and makes it look more like a fruit juice, especially from a distance. Itís the cheapest, itís all about the reefer, and super inconspicuous. Caguama is a good call every time.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Scottsdale, Az. - Fryís Grocery store - big clear quart bottle. Very light pale golden pour with a soapy, thin white head. Typical, patented South American skunky lager aroma with a hint of metal. Several cobs of corn surely sacrificed themselves to make this brew. Hint of honey sweetness adds a bit of balance to the flavor. Thinnish mouthfeel. Overall, platable.

The wife found this beer and keeps bringing it to gatherings. In Texas we drink cold Beer. If its free and lots of it, even better. How Kroger started selling this is beyond me. We refer to it as "Turtle Beer." Guys, I hate to tell ya, as a Mexican, Dos XX, Tecate, and Corona ALL used to be shit on by EVERYONE. I bet you wish you had stock in it now.

Caguama is by far the best beer Iíve ever had!! I bought it on impulse, seeing it at a Kroger store on sale at just $8.88 for a 12-pack of bottles, and $15.99 for a 30-pack of cans. After trying the beer, I went back and bought 10 cases of each to stock up for the summer. It is a perfect beer for the pool, lake, or beach. You will not be disappointed. CAGUAMA FOR LIFE!!!!

Bottle from Kroger. Clear pale color with a large frothy white head thar diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light grass hop aroma. Light body with soft carbonation. Light balanced bitter sweet flavor with a light short finish. Drinkable summer brew.

Why is it every 30 pack i have ever purchased always has at least 1 burst or flat can in it? man, i could get sick off that shit!And then when i try to find who could possibly have any responsibility in the manufactoring of this beer ,i get "not me, who, dont know that beer,etc. etc." I aint lying.

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.

Suttree (5044) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2006
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.
