3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I really like the painted label, the etched glass look is a favorite to have in my collection. Color is pale yellow gold, with a small refined head that faded within the first few sips. Smell is mostly sweet malt and grain, slightly biscuity. Taste is malty sweet with a dull grain and lends to a small hop edge in the end. Feel is watery and dull, medium to light bodied with just a bit of bite in the finish. Very drinkable when cold, but lost the hop edge as it warmed.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale yellow color with a light little white head on top. Aroma is tinny with sour grassy notes. Slightly candyish with a sweet grassiness. Not much bitterness to speak of and generally about what one would expect a buddy to bring back from Honduras. Thanks pal.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with a pale yellow body topped by a thick white lasting head with good lace. Sour grassy aroma without much depth or strangth. Slightly sweet malt flavor with a bitter background and a slightly bitter finish. Light bodied and slightly dry.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Absolutely no aroma to this. Highly carbonated. Loved the nautical look to the bottle - specimen look to it. Odd, malty - difficult to describe flavor to it - kind of a coffee(?) undertone to it - odd - yes - no way else to describe.

Cool painted label bottle and logo. A little chemical aroma/flavor. It kinda grows on you -- the malto-carbo flavor with a little bit of watermelon rind flavor. Watery, and overcarbonated somewhat. Not bad, not great, perhaps underrated at its current 2.07 mark.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The winner in today’s 15-lager taste off, this was so smooth, yet fairly malty and flavorful that it almost dethroned Tropical as my reigning Central/South American lager champ. Very good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Decent head, quiet strong I must say but color of beer was not promising. Kind of with out life and sparkle, low on gas and slightly unfiltered. Sweet aroma not much to say here .unpleasant taste are dominant, soil, blah.

clear pale golden colour, fine head and a nice lace, dry hop aroma, herbal, medium to full body, oily with an aggressive and quite unpleasant dry finish

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A horribly skunky, grainy aroma. I drank this one ice cold(thank g-d,) because it was nothing worth noting. Moderate body, some hop presence, but this one is extremely forgetable.
