1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale straw colored pour, big white head. Aroma of super cheapo grains, lots of corn, and a cooked vegetables. The flavor on the other id just like water! There is ZERO flavor!

355mL bottle from the Likbow. Thanks Likbow. Pours a fizzy yellow with a small white head. Fantastic. Smells like your standard cereal grains of the distinctive Columbian variety. Interesting. Flavour is sweet from pale malts and (probably) adjuncts, of the non-cocaine variety. Reminds me of apple juice. Nice peppery finish that I tend to appreciate in my pale lagers from countries that have a tendency to ignore human rights. Hits the spot really well on an inexpicably hot summer night. I actually kind of like this stuff, I’m glad Columbia has a new substance to export.... *the above rating was not intended to offend anyone of Columbian descent, you have a wonderful country and I just like to indulge in topical humour of the ridiculous variety*

First beer from Colombia for me. Thanks LCBO ! Ha, ha... twist-off cap. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head that creates a thin coat of lacing. Tiny bubble carbonated and smells like a light pilsner. Decent taste of grain, hop and mild honey in the aftertaste. Nothing offensive here and does what it is intended in doing. Refresh Colombians in their warm environment. Maybe even a bit better than most Mexican swills.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very pale yellow, no cap to speak of, moderate carbonation.
Aroma is almost non existent, some wet cardboard smell.
Thin and watery , boiled cereal and maltose tones , counterfeit hoppiness, fast finish.
At least it was clean with no off tastes, just a wimpy extract-adjunct latino welfare brew from some gastronomic backwater where beer is confused as some kind of soft drink. or a chaser for cheap cactus whiskey.
Drinking this is like a trip to Columbia.....You try it, You survive unscathed but you won’t be back.

Hooray another new LCBO Lager from WHEREVERTHEF#CK. Actually this is not so offensive! Very pale gold pour looks nice, white head is natural looking. Crisp bready and sweet malt nose follows through in taste. Hops are very moderate which in this light-bodied beer means in balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I actually liked this one, as pale lagers go! Clean profile, with a bready malt nose and flavor, just a hint of hops, mostly there in a balanced finish. Not at all grainy in the malts, and though I doubt it that it really is, it really came across as all-malt. Straw golden with good foamy head.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I really dont mind this style of beer, we all drink them when we travel, at least i do, so....this was not very good in my opinion. First off, it could be an age thing, bottles pull date was over a year ago, and i know they can last longer but this had some signs of age. typical golden, no head pour, typical corny, sweet smell. But where this stands out, or doesn’t is the lack of any taste and almost syrupy sweet mouthfeel and non-fizz metal finish. Don’t get me wrong, if i’m in Columbia, i’m drinking these all day, but at home in the US, i’m moving down the import section to something else.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, pale golden body with a small bone white head. Aroma is a bit weak with scents of grass, basement and some slight hops and skunks, not bad. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some bready notes. Crisp, easy drinking beer. Bland but with enough decent flavor to reach for another.
