2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear orange-golden color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly bitter. Totally average pilsener, nothing wrong with it, but also nothing to tell really.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from an Italian shop.
Soft pilsener with a little flowery aroma, sweet grain. Not in any way above the ordinary, but not as ghastly as most tropical lagers tend to be.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
330 ml bottle. From Essen, Germany.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head.
Stale sweet malty aroma with cardboard.
And the same goes with the flavour. Not much good to say.
Colombia is known from something else... and let’s keep it that way.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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

[Bottled. Thx Alexandra]
Pale golden with a brief, white head.
Sourish and cloying ion both aroma and flavour. Now I know Club Colombia, but I still can’t call it perfect...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pleasantly surprised - expected another skunky Corona knockoff thanks in part to the painted clear bottle and the locale of the brewery. Kind of a biscuity-malty aroma; appearance was slightly cloudy and an unappealling yellow. Thick mouthfeel which held itself up throughout. Interesting flavor - slightly yeasty, with a good malty undertone. Overall, color me impressed and chalk up another country and the 10th rating of this beer - make or break?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Bierwijnboetiek, Den Haag. Clear golden body with thin head. Skunky nose. Taste of oranges, malts. Quite prickly, cardboard texture. Not much to it. Passable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in Miami. Gold with thin head. Sweet, familiar but hard to place light aroma. Grainy with a rough hop and grass flavour. Certain amount of sweetness. You could drink more than one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle by 01DIC12. Twist top, nose has straw and a bit of barn, some dough, too, quite surprising. Clear golden body with an off-white head. Taste is malty, actually relatively dry, with a minty undertone and oblique floral notes. Very grainy. Relatively clean medium body, crisp and tightly enveloped, this was a nice little find.
