1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- smells like a skunk
Appearance- Pours a pale straw yellow color with a very small white head.
Taste- Has a grass and corn flavor mixed in with the skunkiness.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation
Overall- Not good at all, if it wasnít skunky I am sure I could give it a much better rating. I wonder how it rates in El Salvador when it is fresh?

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Another watery, adjunct-laden brew made solely for drinking plenty. Not too bubblegummy but unpleasantly sour on the aftertaste. Bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle into glass. 4.6% on the label. Interesting nose, lavender & bread perhaps. Pale yellow with solid lasting white head. Spritzy mineral water taste. Very crisp sweet finish. I thought this would be terrible, it isnít.

Bottle from bottle thanks to clear glass - why bother pouring it? Oh yeah the head. The head. Nose is corn. Plain as can be. I bought this to tick. There was an empty slot in tbe BYO 6-pack. This filled it. I like NAís better than this.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Clear straw with no head. Faint aroma of damp cardboard and candy. Light body, reasonable carbonation. Very little taste - slightly citrus notes over vaguely candy sweet notes fade into a watery finish. Overall, itís a watery pointless "beer" but is not pour-down-the-sink nasty.

From a bottle. No where near as bad as I expected from the ratings. Not any worse than Corona.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A marvellous beer which accommodates any occasion. The rich flavour of beer and the pleasant after taste of beer is much appreciated. A far superior beer to its Mexican counterpart, the dreaded íCaronaí. Whilst many do not enjoy this beer as other ratings are sub par, it is important to remember the single most important factor, price. This marvellous Mexican fiesta of a beer can be enjoyed for $40 a carton, what is not to love. Before making your decision by reading other peoples most questionable opinions on this spectacular beverage, please try it for yourself, I can not guarantee your not will be perfect, but I can put my name on the fact that you will at least be in the company of a fine, fine beer, thankyou

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden beer, small white head. Yeast aromas appear at the beginning, like barnyard, and leaves, after a while some sweet aromas of the malt are felt, but unluckily some of the yeast ones prevail. Sweet malt flavor, hop bitterness with an inadequate balance, and medium body making it unpleasant.

I decided to go with something exotic for review #6000. Itís 2014, am I right? Iím done fucking around. I really am. I mean, come on...I visited Lithuania last year. I hate to sound arrogant, but Iíve moved up to a certain elite level here, so I canít sit around sampling ordinary shit anymore. I need special shit. I need mystical shit. I need shit brewed by Aztec warriors, or at least someone with a cool accent. And perhaps the only other country that is bringing the noise with the same volume as Lithuania is...nope, not Bangladesh, not Burkina Faso...but El Salvador. "El Salvador?!", youíre saying. "Where the fuck is that, in Albania or something?" Nope, dumbass...itís in Guyana. "Who?" Get a frickiní map, dude...just look up Africa and follow the dots. Anyway, I had to special order an entire case online (not from Aztecs, sadly, but the invoice said the order was filled by someone named Aswan, so close enough), but I finally got it. Weíll get to the "how long should I cellar it?" kinds of questions later. Letís have a gander. Man, just look at this beautiful 16th century screen-printed bottle! Where am I, in a fucking time machine?! Hell yeah, dog! It even says "Pura Cerveza" right on it. For those who donít speak Latin, that means "Perfect Quality". Perfect. Think about that for a bit, let it sink in. "Perfect"...awww yeahhhh...stings, donít it? Take the pain, brother. The raw, worty Lithuanian character that Iíve become attached to is admittedly *close* to perfect, but you know what? Close donít cut it no more. Iím a beer geek, for fuckís sake. CANTINA. Thatís what Iím talking about. No cheap twist-off cap here, you gotta have one of those shark-shaped bottle openers to even get into this. You gotta have good taste too. Luckily I do, so Iím all up in this, you feel me? Itís in a clear bottle so you can see just how perfect the quality is, and also how much is left in there. Thatís pura pura, baby. But let me tell you, however much is left ainít enough for me. I need to get some more, so yíall just sit tight.
