Out of the variety pack this was the best. it had some fruity flavors mixed in with the nauseating amounts of corn. think of it like budweiser with some ethnic fruit extract. goddamn.

malty aroma, pours a nice gold, little to no head, not much to the taste, malty and light, pretty smooth, weird bitterness to finish.

I was expecting much worse, but hey, at least its not in a clear bottle self inflicting itself to skunkiness. Pours a perfectly transparent gold with a small white head. Aroma has a straw/light malt quality to it, reminds me almost of flower and dough. Taste starts with a quick malt hint, faint caramel/honey quality then quickly fades into a subtle bitter finish. Taste kinda has a dough thing to it. This brew was very light and clean.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pleasantly surprised to say the least. Had at Dona Emilia’s - a South American restaurant in Austin, TX. Dark golden appearance, light white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma has a white chablis essence to it - rather pleasant. Flavor had some honey sweetness to it and was lacking that corn flavor that a lot of this ilk seem to have. Mouthfeel was decent. Overall, a good companion to the spicy Pattacones Rellenos and Bristec a la Criolla I had.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nasty adjuncty swill, this is.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer after its extraction from the 355ml brown bottle sets in the glass a translucent gold with a petite sized semi-creamy white head that erodes quickly leaving a thin sheet of lace to obscure the glass. Prototypical lager nose, sweet and rich in malt, fresh and clean, start is sweet with a fair malt profile, top is light in its feel. Finish is prickly in its acidity, the hops light but present, quite dry and a drinkable beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yup, the things we do to notch a rating from another country. Light to medium yellow, veneer of head really did try to hang on. Rice and faint bitter aroma. Very faint lager skunk, but I think this was intentional versus poor handling. Fizzy body detracts from the palate. Rice flavors, but there is some malt, and some form of hop has actually shown up in the finish in a faint bitterness. Overall, could be worse.

Wow, now I have Columbia under my belt. The bottle looks like it belongs in a 1950’s medicine chest. Gold as it should be, watery as well....not much to talk about. Thanks to the brewmaster for bottling this in brown so it wouldnt skunk.

Bottle. Dark yellow, small head. Slight soap aroma, mixed in with some malts. Not offensive or bad at all.
