Salva Vida es la cerveza ideal para disfrutar entre amigos, entre "aleros", ya que está estrechamente ligada con la diversión, los buenos momentos, el fútbol, las fiestas, con todo lo bueno de la vida que se quiera compartir. Salva Vida es la cerveza líder en Honduras desde 1916.

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 (10438) - 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.

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.

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.

roatan91 (23) - GREENACRES, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Fluufy head with a light golden color. A skunky taste. Corn-based. It’s a close tie with the other 2 beers of Honduras and all made by the same place. Not bad when on vacation and diving and norkeling and on the beach. Would drink again.

Light yellow color with a fizzy head. A slight apricot aroma and taste. Meh, I’ve had worse.

OldGrowth (2751) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Can, after a sail and snorkel trip while returning to the ship. So-so nose, sourdough, lemon, grass. Clear pale gold color, good head that faded quickly. Bitter flavors, same as aromas. Thin body, watery mouthfeel, weak lemongrass bitter flavors. Tad bit better than the Belikin I had the day before. Still a lawnmower. At the time I wrote " I could use a SNPA right now".
