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.

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 doesnít is the lack of any taste and almost syrupy sweet mouthfeel and non-fizz metal finish. Donít get me wrong, if iím in Columbia, iím drinking these all day, but at home in the US, iím 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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale gold color with a light white head. A faint aroma of malt. Pretty watery. Not much flavor. Easy on the palate. Might be good for refreshment on a hot day. Not that great overall.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Corn, metal, and fizz--oh and perhaps some beer ingredients, a touch of hops and some malt. Drinkable and even a bit refreshing when cold, this is nonetheless a distinctly forgettable pilsner-style pale lager [perhaps another category is called for]! $8.99/6 pack

First a little history: Columbia is a country known for its cocaine exports and a fictional man named Juan Valdez. Less well known is the fact that they also make beer. Aguila is one of these beers and immediately upon tasting it, you will come to understand why you have not heard of it before. With its creamy white head atop a straw golden colored liquid, it is an attractive brew but the attractiveness ends w/appearances. The aroma is of the faintly hoppy skunky variety preferred by people who learned about beer from billboard advertisements and television commercials but are snobbish about it none the less. The flavor is not at all devoid of character--here is some bready malt character and the sweetness is balanced by a mild hop character--but overall this is a rather light beer even for the style. Aside from the skunk in the nose and maybe a very slight metallic twinge, this is a very clean and easy drinking beer. It is, of course, also utterly forgettable but at least it isnít painful to drink.
