Bottle. Cigarette ash and corn aroma. Extremely pale yellow color with small head. Sweet corn malt and bitter herb flavor. Bad even for a Central American lager.

burg326 (5202) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2012
12 ounce bottle that poured a light golden yellow, aromas of corn and grass, not much flavor, light sweetness from the corn, but nothing really going on here for the most part.

Bottle 12 oz @ Channel Inn Hotel Washington DC, USA. Light yellow beer with a small white head. Sweet aroma of malt and corn. Light syrlug taste. Notes of something fruity without desideret hop bitterness

Total Wine & More, Chantilly 12oz ($2): Pours a golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is a bit grassy and the like. This is not an offensive beer; instead it is pretty light and grassy. Very drinkable and, to me, it was not in the least bit offensive.

Pours a light medium gold .. decent foam on the pour .. very light lacing .. . corn, corn husk, and dead grass .. . bp down again.. . light sweetness, could use more of a bitter edge to it but its decent .. . . never leave it in the hands of the judges.

As far as south/central american adjunct lagers this is pretty low rung stuff. Sweet, nutty, barfy, corny, shitty.

Never had a chance to pour this into a glass but can’t imagine it would make much difference. Wouldn’t bother tracking it down at home but on a beach it’s hard to beat.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves virtually no lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a light hoppy bitterness and a little skunky. Light in body and moderate in carbonation. Slightly better than a typical macro lager.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2011 Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 10/10/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly light with notes of grain and grass mostly
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-yellow color with a fluffy white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, lightly sweet and with a subtle bitterness as well
Palate: This one drinks really easily, light and smooth, with a slight crispness to it
Overall Impression: My 2nd rating from Honduras! Also, my 100th Pale Lager rating, which is the probably the least exciting accomplishment in all of beer rating. I knew what I was getting myself into here, and I pretty much got what I was expecting. I needed to fill out a mixed 6-pack, and I knew I wasn’t getting anything more then a tick, but it isn’t as bad as the overall reviews would indicate.

This being my first Honduran brew, it compares well with other brews in its class; light, crisp, refreshing. It has a sharp bitter bite up front with a smooth caramel-like mellowed finished. It’s just a good typical pale lager. Darn good companion with my chili-cheese-frito-pie dinner! This brew truly met up with its purpose - quench thirst quickly and cheaply!
