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!

i like this because its cheap and decent taste. not too much "good flavor" but, beer is beer and if its in front of me, ill drink it. for others, if your used to beers like arrogant bastard ales (one of my favs) or some kind of dark ale, stout, bock, ect... you may think this is pretty weak.

RedSox2004 (1410) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Crystal clear white gold with a small and quickly disappearing head. Skunky aromas to go along with the grainy malt. Big carbonation, metallic finish.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour with a small fizzy head. Mild grain/grass smell, plus a little skunk. Taste is almost skunkier. Pretty bad.

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into pint glass. Aroma- Has a beer smell that is driven by grass or grain. Appearance- Looks like Coors Light to me, that is not a compliment. Taste- Bland with a skunky finish, not good. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation, didnít really notice, trying to get the taste out of my mouth. Overall- Somewhere between totally forgettable to regrettable, I just canít decide.

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Good painted label, which is the strong point for this brewery. Very pale, faintly yellow beer with a white head. Skunked cereal aroma. Nothing here - some graininess, some skunky ambiguous hops. Bleh. Kroger, Abercorn St., Savannah.

rondphoto (2690) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear pale straw, almost clear, thick, foamy, one-finger white head, bands of lace. Aroma hits you as the bottle is opened - bitter adjunct. Taste is very light malt and adjunct that remains steady through the palate, finally landing in a short finish that barely offers anything to balance. This would seem to be for guzzlers on hot days, when it would work well. On cool autumn evenings, no thanks

DrSilverworm (8161) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2014
12oz clear-glass bottle, yanked from someoneís fridge. Clear golden yellow color. Thin white head. Decent ropes and ridges of lace. Awful plain corn, white bread, with a big bite in the taste. Mildly sour, moderate sweet, and a terrible mildly sour bite to the flavor. Corn, white bread, and some funkiness. Mildew. Light to medium body. Kind of rough, light to moderate carbonation. More dry finish. Acidic rough texture to this and awful taste makes this very unpleasant. Who knows how old it is or what conditions itís been subject to, that probably doesnít help. Code on bottle reads FL L06 ACCGBE who knows what the hell that means. Awful. Every sip is painful and punishing.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Clear 32oz bottle shared between three of us at BBQ on 10th July 2014. I had bought the beer for a laugh, as my son in law likes Central American peasant beers like Corona and Pacifico. This however was not to his liking, or mine for that matter. Weak urine colour with a white head for a second or two before it retreated into a wisp and collar. Grainy, metallic and nasty, not a great advert for El Salvadorian beer. Only buy it if you want the country tick (I did not need the tick and wish I had not bought it).

Looks like pissy, tastes like a Corona. Added a double dose of fresh lime to mask the blandness. This was a fathers day gift, who did I piss off?

pours a clear yellow with a small white head that dissipates very quick. the aroma is dirty water and extremely skunked. the taste is so skunky.
