1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very weak head that dissapears moments after the beer has been poured. It almost has no carbonation, lacks fizziness. Colour is golden, and without any foam makes beer look really unappealing. Taste is pretty bland, no bite to it or bitterness at all. Qute a flat taste.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle, 4% a/v
Very thin weak looking beer, barely golden with next to no head. :-( The aroma is also weak and uninteresting, kinda of like a light version of a very light beer. The taste is not horrible but a bit too malty (almost malt liquor) with not enough hops to balance it. One of those beers you have to drink cold, which is surprising for a Columbian beer. Palate is very watery and next to no aftertaste. Glad I tried it, wont be searching for it again soon though.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Golden colour with off white head. Grassy light malt aroma, almost wet towel. Creamy mouth feel with the same flavours as the aroma carring through in the beer while I drink.

Fizzy pale yellow, white cover. Aroma is just faint metallic malt. Taste is more faint, sweetness, metal. Inoffensive.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
He filled my glass in clear light straw and I mean light, while his white head disappears in a flash. No exuberant carbonation which could be a good thing and without further ado I savor his nose of cheap wet grains, wonderbread, and old lemons. Ok, maybe savor isn’t quite the right word. Let me see…how about curdle in fear, much like the curdled essence his nose has going for it. For such a dank rank nose, his palate was surprisingly without. Wonderbread creaminess for his mouthfeel while lemon zaps the top of my tongue…and then nothing. I am grateful for his lack of rank in the palate, but the little bit of wonderbread and lemon that is there disappears so fast it might as well not even try. Quaff, repeat, and that is all he wrote. The rest of my glass (like the Cusquena before it) went down the kitchen sink.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a tiny bubbly head with not much retention and no lacing. Aroma of light adjunct is quite bland. Taste is incredibly bland with light ginger ale feel and almost no malt. Body is incredibly thin with almost no body and medium carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear light yellow/gold with small white head. Very mild aroma, slightly grainy but not skunky or corny. Taste is similarly muted - grainy, slightly corny and a light sweetness. Poor, but not as bad as some of the LCBO’s pale lagers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another pale lager finding its way into the LCBO. Pours light yellow with a crown of white. Neutral aroma, a bit of malt. Initial swallow is malty, middling mouthfeel. Very undrinkable, a little minerally. Uninteresting.Carbonation a bit aggressive.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, bright pale yellow color, with an of-white head, mild wet cereal, pale, pilsener malt nose, with a hint of hay in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a crisp light honeyed pale malt cereal character with a hint of vanilla and a subtle flowery hop grassy hoppiness, leading towards a faint lingering leafy hop bitterness finish. A big tasteless beer!
