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!

Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color, medium white head. Medium corn syrup aroma. Medium body with a light sweet and bitter flavor and a sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (651) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 17, 2014
Can 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Pale golden colour, with small, creamy white head. Aroma of smoke, cardboard, chalk, straw and cooked vegetables. Taste starts light acidic with some citruses and finishe light bitter. Another watery lager with light to medium body and lively carbonation. Anyway, I added new country on a beer map, thanks to Kita....

Had this in Panama City, not too terrible for its style, I prefer balboa though.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 I know I’ve been generous with the score, however, drinking it on the balcony in Canopy Lodge, Cerro Gaital with the sound of Oropendolas & Motmots calling on a humid evening is something to die for. I even brought the can home with me. Salud.

Shared from a 12oz can into a nonic glass, thanks Greg. It poured a clear, straw colour with white foam, long-lasting with lace, better overall head retention than comparable beers. A bit hoppier, too, but skunky as if light-struck despite being in an aluminum can. Bland but drinkable (barely, if you’re desperate enough).
