Poured a clear pale yellow with minimal fizzy white head. Aroma is a bit grassy, corny, and metallic. Flavor is watery and has a bit of a bitter metallic edge to it. Definitely a below average beer even for a pale lager. Not a favorite, not much to it.

cheap (3973) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Clear twist off bottle. Nice thin white head. Some sparkle within. Decent carbonation on the palate. Sizzles at times and I welcome that. Flavor has a detracting unique industrial quality that is somewhat similar in style to many cheap pale lagers of the U.S. genre. A little coarse at times on the tongue. Nice lacing, beleive it or not. Finish is again cheap pale lager. Overall it is typically a little below the average of many american pale lagers.

I thought this beer would have much higher rankings. Everytime I have this beer in Honduras(that must make a difference) i think SAB is crazy for not bringing it to the USA because I think it would be colossal. SAB bought out the original Honduran brewer. Itís like a smoother Corona, light. Itís the yuppie choice, even non bear drinkers love this one. Nothing quite like one of these on the beach while your listening to the islanders sunnin listening to the beats of Marley. Not a worry in the world. Recently available in a can, this is the highest priced Honduran national beer, the can version that just came out is only 10 ounces instead of 12 I noticed. I must say this deserves higher rankings, Cerveza Imperial is ranked higher than Barena ? Are you kidding me? Something is wrong here - as Imperial is horrible. Myself iím more of a manís man when it comes to beer(dark beer), but I recognize that this light beer is enjoyed by everyone who Iíve ever seen try it in Honduras, especially the non typical beer folks - i must admit I enjoy it also and Iíve had many a beer from all over. Originally this beer was named Bahia but had to change names over infringement issues apparently. Similiar to Sol, a more watery Corona perhaps but iím still going to give a good ranking. Seriously Iíve never met one who didnít enjoy this beer and thatís saying something.

Again a pretty sorry ass central/south american lager. Skunky and a waste. corn, grains, old hops. Move along.

Had at a beach bar in Roatan. Basically, itís just like a Corona without the usual Corona skunkiness. Itís refreshing and drinkable on a hot day by the beach, but thatís about it.

Bottle. Shared with some Honduras friends at a BBQ a feew years back. Needed a Honduran beer to add to the review list. Not too bad, but not very good eiter. Better than Corona in my book.

Not much to do with this beer, is not disgusting but itís just another "ice" beer which can be fun for some but itís just water for others.

I actually enjoyed this beer. Very drinkable and a smooth flavor with a little sweetness at the finish. I drank the Colombian version of this beer by the way.
