3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I know a beer like Panama is never going to get respect from the geek crowd. But let me ask you all a question I pondered while sitting at the edge of the Carribean, downing beer and eating conch: if you had to brew a beer that would be palatable on a 90 degree day with 90% humidity, what would YOU brew? Certainly not the imperial stouts or Belgian tripels that score the high marks here. In fact, even a pale ale would overwhelm. In Panama, there are two kinds of beer, the 3% and the 5%. Panama is a 5 percenter and the best. After a day sea kayaking, while lounging at a restaurant, you feel like you’re in heaven and drinking God’s own beer. Salud!

I lived in Panama off and on for ~ 8 Years. This was not one of my favorite local beers. It kind of reminds me of a poor mans Heineken. It has a medium yellow appearance with an acetic aroma. The flavor is also somewhat acetic with a slight vinegary aftertaste. When the temperature is hot and the beer is cold it is OK. Locally the prices are cheap. I’ll drink it if there is no other choice but not my first pick of the Panamanian beers.
