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.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a thin, sudsy white head that disappeared after the first sip. Aroma is corn with some very faint malt and grassy hops. The flavor is very similar with corn and a trace amount of malt. Dry at the finish with some moderate bitterness. Over-carbonated. Thin, watery body. Not very good and not worth re-visiting.

CH-303 (1560) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Bought purely to tick off Colombia on my list.
Appearance: Light golden. A bit of shortlived head. Bubbly. Aroma: Some malt and grain. Taste: Not much, some malt and hops. Pretty boring, but not bad. Info: 350ml bottle, 12/5-2007

12 oz bottle...pours clearish yellow w/ a diminishing foamy white head. The nose was citrus, grains, malt. The flavor was similar w the malts at the forefront. The palate was weak and watery, with some fizzy carbonation. Very light drinker and quite refreshing.

Itís okay. Nothing great. As for Colombian beers, its like the midway point. Others are better, much more are worse. This has a slightly better smell than taste. It was a little more bitter than I had expected. We like to cut it with Colombiana soda, and make something similar to a Vanilla Cream ale. Try it...you might like it....I didnít, but I still drank it.

OK common lager; pours yellow, with surprisingly nice frothy head; smells sweet; smooth and easy to drink; sours as it warms.

hombrepalo (1913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2008
12oz, well almost 12. Had this at a Colombian Steak House. Typical Latin american Pilsner. Pours a piss yellow color, with fizz and some white head. Smells like rye, faint rice, metal and some sort of other grain. Taste is refreshing yet watery, this could be a nice chaser beer to some other better stronger beer, cause of the watery taste. not much goes on here, quite a flat tastless beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Picked up in an ethnic market to complete the exercise in watery S. American beers. Woot! Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells and tastes of corn, rice, water, dry hops, touches of citrus.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pours a very pale yellow with little to no head. Not too much taste, maybe a little grassy and grainy. Goes down pretty smooth an would probably be pretty good on a warm summer day if there was nothing else to drink

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
(on bottle)Hazy yellow, small, steady head. Not much of an aroma, but the mouthfeel, combined with the hefty and nice maltiness, gives a good beer. Not that typical, I found this beer to nave an allmost weissbier-like carbonation, wich gives a foamy and thick feel, not very southamerican, but a good support to the carameld finish.
