The beer pours from the bottle into my Moonlight glass producing a finger’s worth of white head. The beer is a crystal clear, pale golden color. The aroma has a soft, mild malt character, sweet corn, and a subtle grassiness. The nose is quite unoffensive, bland, and pallid.

Mildly sweet up front, there is a surprisingly soft carbonation. Significant corn flavor and there is little, if any, bitterness. There is also a slight waxy quality to the flavor, a bit of soap, as well as grass. Very light grain character, what is there is somewhat nice.

This is pretty much what I expect from a pale lager. It is easy to drink, refreshing, and light on a hot Honduran day. But, it is still just a run of the mill pale lager and is suitable for any situation that calls for such a beer.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of green banana and pale malts. The taste is pale malts, faint grass, and that banana note again. Thin bodied. Not skunky despite the clear bottle. Halfway decent.

Bright Light yellow, Good Head, Some Lacing. Sweet , Watery. Seems to be a little milder than Corona. Pleasantly surprised, after having Dos Equis, did not have high expectations for this Central American beer, While it is nothing special and forgettable, it was pleasant thirst quencher at the end of a hot spring day.

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours clear gold with a pillowy white head. Scent is pretty much non-existent.... A little straw and grain....water. Taste is the tiniest bit of malt, a little corn...and....wait for it....water. Astounding...totally innocent of....anything. There’s nothing bad about it, because there doesn’t seem to be anything THERE. Sort of like a light cream ale, without the ale, or the cream..... I really don’t want to slam this too badly...somehow I feel it would be like punching a helpless child. I’d drink another....if only to bask in the nothing-ness.... It’s a Honduran Zen Beer....

Üveges kiszerelésben jutottam hozzá egy hondurasi kilátó büféjében. Amerikai tömegsörök "ízére" hasonlító felejthető ital. Csomagolása már megújult a képen láthatóhoz képest.
