Thanks Mechas... Clear golden pale color, nice and persistent white head. Aroma is too weak some malt and cereals. Flavor is malty and some corn notes. Mouthfeel is only refreshing quite bitter. But too weak beer.

Poured light pale color with a large frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light grainy aroma. Lighjt to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish.
Drinkable, but not my first choice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A clean, clear refreshing lager. It has a light hop tang, and a mild sweetness. A pretty solid choice for a south american brew.

35 cl bottle at yngwie´s tasting at the ferry Christian IV. Clear golden color, disappering white head. There is almost no aroma, but some hints of malt. Flavor has some malty sweetness and bitterness, but most of all very watery.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a see through yellow with a big head. It smells of malt and earth. Taste has a small hint of hops, no idea which ones but mostly a malty and earth taste. It finshes smooth but a bit flat. Ehhh, not the worst beer I have had.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle in trade from daknole- thank you. Served in shaker- poured horribly transparent yellow with golden tints, low carbonation, foamy one finger white head did formed and stayed for more than a minute which I guess is good. Aroma of hops, wheat, and field corn. Hits the mouth with a thin body, corn taste is there but not overly heavy like some PL’s, malt is very vague, water in the middle, finish is clean. Not bad for the unreal climate of Colombia when the brew is ice cold.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of Dankole. Pours a light gold with a 2 finger rocky white head and spotty lacing. Nose is light hops and malt. Taste is pretty much the same with a very dry finish. It doesn’t have that sweet corn taste like most of these types of beers have. Lighter mouth feel. Better than BUD. Thanks Dak – another country checked on the list!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to John. Pours a clear gold with a large white head with good lacing. The aroma is sweet malts, banana and corn. The taste is smooth and sweet; very light malt, some sweet corn and creamy flavors, and a touch of hops. Not bad. Quite drinkable. The body was quite thin and watery which assist the beer go down quickly.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty standard lager beer. The taste is actually pretty nice with a mildly sweet finish. There is a bunch of crispness to the bee and some taste of hops is noticeable. Everybody in Colombia drinks it constantly and I can say that I have drank it in bars, hotel, boats, cars, and streets. A rather good beer for what it is.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
19-May-08 (12-oz bottle, Best by 17-May-08: Purchased 12-May-08 for $1.39 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Starting with the best feature first, this is how pale lagers should look. Crystal clear and dark-straw in color with plentiful carbonation bubbles rising upward through the beer throughout the session. The fizzy head is white in color and builds to almost an inch in height before settling to a thin layer. And that’s the end of the positive aspects of this typical Latin-American beer. Adjuncty, grainy and lightly tart nose isn’t appealing, and the similar flavor also brings cardboard into the mix. The lightly tart citrus flavor is unusual though, and at least helps distract one’s attention. Body is light, and without any impact from hops, the beer quickly makes the palate feel flat and stale, though the light tartness does help a little. Medium-high carbonation. Not enjoyable, but the off-flavors are less offensive than many in its category.
