2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A friend brought me a bottle of this from Roatan, Honduras. Thanks Monique!
Barena poured with a thick, white head that left lots of sticky lacing. It was clear and pale golden-yellow in color. Aroma is dominated by bread. I didn’t smell much else. The taste is bready, with slight hops in the finish. The adjunct did not come through, so they did a nice job of covering it up. Mouthfeel is medium. I entirely anticipated skunked beer from this and was pleasantly surprised.

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.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Drank from the bottle during the honeymoon, aroams of light stale hops, light cereal, and some light earth. Flavors are the same as aromas. Decent pale ale, wouldn’t go out of my way to find it, but nice on the hot beach.

They market this as "premium" beer in other Latin American countries. My least favorite Honduran beer - very run of the mill with no qualities that stand out. Not good but not bad.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Color is a typical straw yellow with a decent and firm, though typical, white head. Crisp, malty aroma has a fruity undertone, typical for this style. Flavor is malty - and rather insipid. Smooth texture has little body or fizz. OK, I had to try it just for something from Honduras.

Damn straight BlackIPA sent me this gem!
Is it something in the air in my bedroom that is making these Pale Lagers pour beautifully over the last few days? This one’s got a huge rocky white head that is well retained and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The color is very pale golden.
Boy the aroma here is interesting, it dances around from doughy, to vegetal to sweet and breakfast cerealy, the doughy part is nice.
See now they’ve done something here to incorporate the horrible sweet breakfast cereal flavor into the overall flavor of the beer as opposed to making it stick out like a sore thumb. Other offenders include a strong presence of alcohol, some tomato, a little bit of dough, and some herbal hops adding a really pleasant bitterness to the beer.
The palate is all over the place, sharp at first, harsh overall, a little bit slick in the finish. weird.
