1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale golden coloured beer with light pils malt aroma. A bit grassy, but not much. Flavour is very watery. Little in the way of flavour either, a bit of light malt. Seems a little bit underattenuated. Light hoppiness on the back (mostly bitterness, with little in the way of flavour). Just another boring pale lager.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle- A light golden body with a small head. Aroma of a little malt and grains. Taste of a typical pale lager with nothing to write home about.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 4% ABV Pours a clear pale yellow color with small bubbles. Head is medium, white and with a chemical, soapy look. It diminishes slowly and leaves no lacing.
Aroma is citrusy, lemony with a backbone of rice and adjuncts. Low malty and low hoppy presence. Some metallic notes and lots of water too.
Flavor is watery, very soft with low bitterness and a sweet touch in the beginning. It shows small notes of cereal and lemon but the finish reveals the adjuncts.
Extremely watery mouthfeel in the same league as Brahma. However it’s drinkable, not offensive at all while cold. Finish is short and leaves an aftertaste of water. Typical South American pale lager.
Thanks a lot to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-31163.htm&g for sharing this beer.

Bottle. One of the better beers of Latin-America so not the best. A good thirst qeunching golden clear lager from Colombia.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In an open and blind tasting with Cusquena, Brahma, Palma Louca and Michelob Ultra this did OK. Firm then fading carbonation. Lack of distinction. Mainly watery with a suggestion of caramel - perhaps a bit of vanilla and something nutty. A slight smudge of dirty hop extract in the finish. This is very nondeScript. Inoffensive to the point of pointless. However flavours are here - faint licorice and a hint of pepper or nutmeg. Possibility of dried green apple. Carbonation remains pointed. [2.1]

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a light head. The aroma is malty and dry and the flavour is like dry lemonade. Overall a below average beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, cereal malt aroma. Festive label, clear standard pale lager. Sweet and malty, pretty decent for a tropical lager. A little metallic twinge here and there, medium-light body. You could certainly do worse in a 3rd-World cantina.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Got this on over the Atlantic going from Buenos Aires to Madrid. Pale yellow colour with a short lasting head. Weak malty aroma. Bit strange malty flavour that does not really have much taste to it. Short aftertaste. A typical latin straw lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The bottle I tried bought from the wonderful Beers of Europe was 4.7 per cent rather than 4 per cent. Not that it made a lot of diffence. No matter what the strength on the bottle says this is still a bland and weak lager with few redeeming features apart from being my first from Columbia.It may also be my last.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Light gold with a white foam. Aromas are grain, corn and lemon. Flavours are minimal malts with cardboard, grain and corn. Tastes stale. Some soapiness, too. Pretty bad.
