Bottle from BevMo in Natomas. Pours very pale gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is grainy/paper. Body isnít thin. Except for a whisp of skunk, itís clean and fairly tasteless. Soís water, and that donít have skunk. Not always cheaper though.

Golden with loads of bubbles. Aroma is sour and stale. Flavor, what little there is, is almost sweet like grapes. Palate is watery and smooth. I only made it through half of this before it was dumped.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle... 2006 Corn Holler party, Burkittsville, MD... Clear, straw-colored lager with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Big time lightstruck aroma. Beneath the skunk, thereís some grain. Too sweet, corny flavor. Not a whole lot of alcohol, but I taste every bit of it. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Mercifully short, crisp finish.

This clear yellow beer poured with a generous white head and a skunky aroma like you would encounter in a dive bar. This beer has no taste. Why would anyone drink it?

bottled. pretty damn pale and yellow. faint lemon aroma and plain flour flavour. apparently a lot of this is going to be appearing on sheves in australia and itís going to be marketed as the new corona. which it is

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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 Had this is a side by side horizontal tasting with Arriba (another La Constancia product) to see if they are the same products and my conclusion is no, they are not. Both have the same skunked aroma, light almost clear appearance (an extra point added for the painted bottle) but the flavor is different - this one has a bit of a dusty muted malt flavor. Turns metallic near the end. But the bottle would look nice sitting in a bucket of ice on a beach.
