The aroma is skunked corn malt. The appearance is very light yellow. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. This is not worth drinking.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Although this fizzy, pale yellow beverage is drinkable, the Overall stays low because the skunk oil aroma that begins with popping the cap never goes away. Other than that, the flavor is faint, some malt (mayhaps) and obviously loaded with corn syrup and other adjuncts, finishing on a granularly sweet finish. Typical.

Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest, Orange Park FL, 6/24/2006. Tried it because it was one of the few beers being presented that I had not tried before. Rather poor in any measure. Same league as Corona. You can choke it down if you are desperate, but you wont be that desperate very often.

bubbleflubber (1739) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2006
This is NOT a good brew... The pour is pale golden-straw. A TERRIBLE skunk aroma permeates the entire room (no exaggeration). There is a very small flavor contingency for such an obtuse aroma. I do detect corn notes with a nasty TRY at a peppered-hop back. The mouthfeel is extremely cheap and watery. This is a TERRIBLE brew, even for the Miller Brewing Company. My deepest condolences to those who bought this thinking that the new "Pura Cerveza" marketing campaign made this a decent beer. It’s pretty awful.

Terrible beer. Drop the name beer & call it a brewed beverage. Major draino material

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 25, 2006
That clear bottle really kept the sunlight out of this one. This one is extremely pale looking like a glass of dirty water. A grassy and corn aroma. The flavor is rather foul with some boiled corn and lemons. A big ol skunk and DMS party. This blows.

madquacker (1026) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2006
Aroma of cardboard (Bland cardboard).Amazingly pale looking colour. Is it beer or water? Flavour of cardboard with a fizz quicker. A bit of cloying sweetness at the end. Overall a truely awful beer. I should have guessed it was bad by the cheap price. Seems to have a KFC greasiness about it as well which lasts and lasts.

Hop pepper malt aroma. Palte yellow colour with poor head and lacing. Hop malt flavour with a dash of pepper. Flat palate.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 27, 2006
(12 oz bottle: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Bottle number four of the Beers Of The World gift pack. I don’t know what it is with these El Salvador beers, but all three of them have had nasty dark particles floating in them. Appearance wise, about the only thing different with this offering is there is a massive army of carbonation bubbles rising at record levels through the beer. I mean, this is crazy, I’ve never seen so many bubbles in a beer, and it’s showing no signs of diminishing. Clear, medium straw colored body is capped by a persistent, white head, but certainly the rising mass of bubbles is what is mostly responsible for keeping the head alive. Very little in the way of aroma initially, just some mild grain, but once a little head space is cleared out, the cardboard is unmistakeable. And in the flavor, it’s simply overwhelming. Rather than showing the standard cheap graininess, the finish on this one seems more bready in nature, but regardless, this is just horrible stuff. Light bodied and much less carbonated than one would have thought based on the visuals. Visuals are the only positive with this beer, as the creamy head is still going strong and there is actually some patchy lacing on the glass. I simply cannot believe how bad these Latin American beers are. BMCs seem light-years ahead in terms of quality, how sad is that?! Three ounces of this swill is about all I can stand.
