2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 8/2/11
Aroma: The nose is along the lines of what you’d expect: grass, corn, and some apple
Appearance: A completely clear yellow with a lot of movement and a foamy white head
Flavor: The taste is somewhat sweet and finishing lightly bitter, thin overall flavor-wise
Palate: The body is light, the duration is short, and the mouthfeel is watery (not many surprises here)
I didn’t necessarily buy this one because I was expecting a good beer, but I had 5 of 6 in my MYO 6-pack, and needed to fill the last slot (Colonial only lets you buy from a select group of mostly crap for their 6 packs) , so I figured why not use that last slot to tick Honduras. It’s not quite as terrible as the overall score of 6 would suggest, but it isn’t really too good either.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
TPSA. Pours a light gold with a very thin head. Very fruity nose for a lager -- definite apple notes. The same fruitiness shows up in the taste, along with sweetness and rice. There is a bit of hops bitterness. Finish is forgettable. It’s a LUL.
