1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 ounce bottle
Even if I were on a beach in the tropics I could think of better things to drink than this mess. This might be worse than virtually every macro on the shelf in any grocery store. The clear bottle does not favors; if it were up to me this would be sold in a black container to hide the contents as long as possible. Unless you need an El Salvador tick Iíd pass.
Aroma / Appearance - A generic golden body looks more like watery apple juice than beer. Flat and lifeless it bores even the glass it is sitting in. Wet dogs rolling in damp leaves stick to the senses in a bad way. Grainy and cheap this is a total mess.
Flavor / Palate - Bland, watery, and dull the only saving grace of this beer is the fact that it fades as soon as it hits the palate. That means you can easily forget the disaster you just drank. In fact even after a case youíd be hard pressed to explain what you just consumed. Trying beers like this is a good reminder of what craft beer offers in contrast.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml bottle poured into a 250mL Leffe glass. thin body , pale yellow. aroma was metallic , soapy , grassy. thin head , flimsy and rapidly diminishing. the palate was an overpowering sense of carbonation. any taste present was dominated by the pop-rock sensation of the exaggerated fizz. Would i class this as a beer? Or perhaps a bad tasting mineral water.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
4.5%, pale gold, no head, no aroma, very fizzy, has a lack of taste like some other Central American lagers, it was a gift, never bought it and never will.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I actually prefer this one to Corona and Sol. Its pretty much the same but with a bit more flavour than the previous mentioned. Nice appearance and crisp taste. Great cheap summer beer.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Lighter shade of pale lager with a good sized white head. Aroma is vegetal wet paper bags. Taste is funky grains with some actual hops in the finish - sour and grassy. Palate - we donít need no stinkiní palate. Overall - ick.

I donít understand all the negative comments either, this is an awesome beer. One which I have never had any negative problems with, all that stuff about nasty aromas etc...? Love it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I canít work out the terrible ratings on this - itís one of my favourite hot and humid weather beers. Perhaps some people are getting UV degraded product? There has been no "skunk" aroma in mine and I have been getting them for 4 years now.
It is a very easy crisp drink, ice cold on hot days - and cheap. Iíd still buy em if they were premium.

Wasnít expecting much but since I had not tried it I got a bottle.
Poured it into a mug and right off noticed the faint aroma that if I sniffed really hard I could smell maybe some grains. The taste was weak, watered down, slight sweet as if sugar water. There was that hint of skunky that I expected from the clear bottle too.
Finished half and couldnít take it anymore. Hated to pour it out since I paid $1.50 for it so I added some Coors and managed to work it own down. Glad I only purchased the one bottle. Would have been really mad if I had more of these nasty things to drink.
