CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Can sampled on 5/23/07: Pours a transparent bright pale champagne golden with an airy white head. Grainy adjuncty corn aroma has some mild musty notes. Body starts fizzy and light with a touch of lightly sweet corn and pale malt toward a thinner, smooth, but bland finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Poured a clear pale yellow color with a small-medium sized white head. The aroma was of sweet grainy malt. The malty flavor was semi-sweet with a crisp and clean finish but very light.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Purchased from a house in Colon, Honduras so I am unsure about storage. Pours a clear yellow. Had a mild hop taste with a light body. Had a rather surprising and disappointing bitter after taste that wasn’t detectable in the aroma.

faroeviking (10286) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2007
Clear long neck bottle with printed letters on the bottle. Light clear golden colour with a medium fairly lasting white fuzzy head. Aroma of grains and some hops. Flavour is some what waterish, bit grassy, grainish, some hops. Quite typical pale Latin lager.

Lubiere (10603) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2006
A light gold lager with a thin persistant white head. Agai, sulfides in aroma with light corn adjunct. In mouth, a bit more of a chalky malt, fruity notes, apricot, light bitterness. Overall, not as bad as I thought it would be. Thanks to Inertiaboy and is contact travelling in Honduras for this. No. 2 of 4 in the Hondurena series.

pijin21 (5) - EL SALVADOR - JUL 24, 2006 does not count
This beer is too water. It has a great aroma (one of the best ones I have sensed), although the after taste is not so good. Would recommend to try it and judge it because I feel that this beer depends on the preference of each person.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - APR 1, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 12 oz bottle from Beer World of Largo <P> Aroma is herbal and sharp like a pungent cheese, but with mild lemony notes. Orange-ish in color with a slowly diminishing pinky sized white head. Huge honeycomb flavor in the fore. Not much else. That flavor carries all the way through and leaves a lingering raw honey flavor. It’s not really even very thirst quenching which is one saving grace for some S American Lagers.

XtraStout (46) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2006
I’ve had worse. I get this impression with Salva Vida that they put a little moonshine in while prewing it. It has a quickly disappearing creamy white head. If you’re in Honduras drink the Port Royal.

Bottle: So watery it is actually more thirst quenching than water itself; awful, terrible.
