Bottled. Got this at La Unica Grocery on W. Devon Avenue in Chicago. By the way, La Unica is THE place for hard-to-find Latin American beers in Chicago to my knowledge. They carried Pacena, Pilsener Ecuador, Polar, and Club Colombia. Anyway to the beer, had a hoppy scent so I was kind of hopeful...alas, once again I was disappointed by the taste. Bland, uninspiring, had a chemical corn, astringent aftertaste to it. Since its scorching hot right now, I guess pale lagers are a refreshing thirst quencher before drinking better beers in the fall/winter.

bottle at a restaurant called Bogota in Brooklyn. clear yellow color, thin and tall foamy white head. says bitter pils on the label. aroma of sweet corn, wet paperboard, wet hay. flavor is bitter for a pils as described, and dry at the same time. mineral flavor like club soda. maltyness is corny like masa. some sweetness too but on the low side for a pils.

Can... Clear, light yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Peppery nose. Perfectly balanced flavor, but bland and seltzeresque. Mildly bitter. Light-bodied and fizzy. Finishes crisp, clean and refreshing. Thanks, Angela, for bringing this can back from Bogota!

Very strange, it smells and tastes like squashy beers, I thought only in the U.K. I would find those. But anyway, the flavor is a little strange and not bad.

I thought that the thinnest beer I’d ever try is Red Stripe, but this Club Colombia seems to be a good beer from the outside, unfortunately its content is so disgusting.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 After awhile in Colombia, outside of the Bogota Beer Company, which is only in Bogota, this will be the only beer you drink. The crispness of it is almost like a pilsener. This really isn’t so bad for a lager; it makes me wonder why they didn’t call it a regular lager (the whole premium lager thing is a joke anyway, since most are terrible). While this beer is from Colombia and is not so great, my girl is and she is awesome!

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Smells like a skunk’s ass after a bad bought of diarrhea. Some mild sweetness in there as well. Perhaps said skunk ate some flowers. Pale gold with a tiny head. Corn syrup sweetness with a lot of carbonation. It almost tastes like McDonalds french fries in the finish. Maybe they use discarded french fries in the brewing process. Still it probably works nicely in a sweaty Colombian Bodega.

Sampled at the Lynnwood International Swill Fest. This beer was by far the worst/best of the fest. 12 oz bottle. Light yellow gold color. Small white sized foamy head. Aroma is malt, cardboard, sweat socks and dirty wet dog. A light to medium bodied “Premium” Lager. GAHH!!!! Heavily carbonated. Crisp, no make that harsh malt flavors. Corn and wet cardboard. Very astringent and a touch sour. That all the good things I can say about the “beer” Its just too horrid to discuss anymore. Now, where did I put my toothbrush? By far the worst beer of 2005. Mouthfeel is this (thank you) Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is bitter

This might be one of the worst abominations of liquid to ever grace the United States with its presence. This illegal alien of the alcohol world pours a light golden color with a quickly dissipating white head and little lacing. The aroma is corny, sweaty socks, wet dog, cardboard with absolutely no hop presence or any redeeming qualities whatsoever. My nose literally couldn’t stand to be within 1 foot of the glass the aroma was so horrid. The flavor is tart and acetic with explosive carbonation levels. The finish is super-dry. The flavors are equally as bad with wet dog, malts, and sweaty socks mixed in with that sour tartness. Shudderingly light bodied with heavy carbonation. It’s like I’ve stuck my nose right up someone’s asscrack and smelled. Its like salt and grapefruit mixed together with astringent corn.... dear god.. i think i’ve got it... its cream of corn in a bottle..... this is one mystery I’m sad to say I’ve solved. An absolutely repulsive beer that could be partially responsible for Colombia’s suckiness.
