1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Matta, the last in the internationalpalelagerathon. Pour a traditional pale yellow color and is clear. Faint white head forms and then fades to a sporadic film layer. Aroma is sweetish, bordering on sickly sweet. Light bodied with ample carbonation. Sweet, corny flavors with just a touch of hops that donít really balance anything. The bottle lists this as a pilsener style which is a bit off. Thanks to Matt for the trade!

(bottle) Poured a deep yellow. Semi-sweet/fruity aroma and taste. The kind of cheap beer I like. I wish it wasnít so light.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can, #5 INOS. HULK SMASH CAN!!!! Sorry, my anger was building in this swill tasting and it pretty much reached a low point here (how did I know the Portuguese were going to piss me off more than the Colombians a little later on?). Neat footie player on the front, not sure what team but sponsored by the beer (player #19). Even lighter the water colour of the last one, really skunky taste but not as offensive of an aroma. Less fish, more can. I am grateful my co-worker took the time to get a new country for me beerwise and think of me, but I donít think Iíll be making a beer-related visit any time soon. Now to walk away quietly to a sad piano line...

Can. INoS. The colour is that of a beer protesting being poured. Headless, defiantly transparent. Sweet strangely vegetal aroma but not as anemicly offensive as the previous beer. Boring, bland, watery. Dilute apple juice finish. Flavour is as inoffensive as the words of a mime.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Beer #5 in the line-up at The International Night Of Swill, and the second in the Columbian one-two punch provided by tupalev. Like the Club Colombia, this comes in a 296 mL can with foil on top. It also features some futbol player on the can. Very pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma of canned peas and grass. Has a bit more flavour than the Club Colombia (which isnít hard to do), but still not very good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle poured yellow with a good white fizzy head.
Aroma of corn and malt.
Flavor is slightly bitter and mostly corn.
About what I expected from this type of beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold with poor thin head of big bubbles. Smells like a weak pilsener, thin grassy hops. Light bitterness up front and in finish. Some sweetness. Body is a little thicker than expected. Better than expected.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale gold pour. Small, quick settling, white head. Malt and corn aroma with hints of fruit. What little taste there is matches the aroma, but very close to nothing. Light body, bitter finish. Good thing I only bought a single.
