2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can with hygenic foil. Light, clear yellow with a small white creamy head. Smells alright to begin with actually- typical appley fusel-type notes and some grain. Straightforward flavour that isn’t particularly bad but just really quite bland. Malty sweetness with a clean and quick finish. The alcohol, which is supposedly 6.5%, is hidden quite well.
Thanks to my parents for bringing this back for me from their recent trip to Colombia.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (330cc). Shared with mds and tupalev, mds’s can. snazzy red foil cap!!! Pale clear gold, diminishing small frothy off-white head. Moderate ass aroma, grainy, sugary, a little boozy, but clean ... sort of. Weak body, soft, grainy, sweet finish, almost like apple juice. Ehh. Doesn’t taste 6.5%

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much aroma but what’s there is okay. Really pretty decent given the comparable lagers available in Bogota, plus it’s 6.5%, so better and more potent!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Can... Clear, yellow lager with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Grainy aroma with notes of mash, jalapeno and popcorn. Well-balanced and fairly refreshing. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean. Much better than expected. Thanks go out to my friend and former client, Angela, for bringing this brew back from Bogota!
