Short white head that vanishes. Very clear golden pour. Smells skunked, strong hops, some sour notes and malt. Tastes like the malt was malted with cigarettes and the hops were thrown in with extra stems. Some bready flavors too. Certainly has plenty of flavor for a pale lager. It’s just gross flavor. Plate is good and mid with dryness.

Sampled from bottle @ Hey Julien is back and Dean’s floor is moist tasting. Clear pale golden color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, slightly sweetish grains and a hint of bitter. Low body and carbonation.

October 30th, 2013 - It’s a pity that I can’t attach photos to my reviews, because what we have here is a half-empty bottle of Salva Vida, and in the background is a Honduran scuba diving site. There’s a wooden pier leading out to a open air structure where divers train tourists like us not to drown in shallow water. And after we succeed, there’s a small bar waiting for your, serving up Salva Vida. Is it a good beer? No. But here at West End Dovers, and after a morning in the ocean, the sweet and heavy palate of this lager tastes good against the accumulated sea water on my lips.

355 ml bottle thanks to Nisse666! Sampled on August 28, 2015.
Clear straw yellow color, small white head. Sweet, grainy, light vegetal scent. Malty, grainy, a bit weak taste. Grainy aftertaste. Fizzy weak mouthfeel, low bitterness.

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottsville VA ---Clear light golden amber color, thick smooth white head, a few lace dots. Pleasing aroma of malt and an adjunct. Taste is almost invisible malt that shows carbonation and somewhat invisible hops on the swallow. I’m having this on a hot, humid afternoon, which makes it somewhat pleasing, but it hardly qualifies as a beer.
