Bottle @ home. Clear gold, almost no head. Aroma is a hint of hops, somewhat grainy and strange. Flavor is boring grainy applejuice. A bit bitter.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a stemmed glass at home. New country tick. ABV 4.7%
Golden yellow colour on the body with a small sized white head. Good density and good retention. Light lacing on the glass, non existent activity in it.
Light malty aroma, non offensive at all, mostly because is so faint. That is pretty much it, nothing else going on there.
Taste is also malty, with light grass. Sweet and it lacks the bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thin body and low carbonation, as expected.
Nothing notable with this one, is going down easily, good to flush a dinner down.

Shared a 33cl bottle. A malty lager with not much bitterness, quite watery but serves quite well its purpose of refreshing a warm day.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle: BBD 8th Jan 15. Brought back from Hamburg by me to the Shrewsbury bottle share group and split between five of us on 12th Jan 2015, some four days after its BBD: bugger. Anyway the beer poured a clean and clear lager/pilsner gold and had a white topping for a while. Corn syrup ruled both the aroma and taste of this sweet brew. Not great up it was not as bad as I half expected. Just a sweet, uninteresting lager really.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botella bonita. Dorada. No está mal de espuma.
Aroma neutro, algo metálico.
En boca tiene algo más que otras lager industriales de nivel bajo. Entra seca y con cierto toque de amargor. Resulta un tanto cremosa. Bebible.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Vigorous, frothy head, slightly above average color for a lager. More noticeable lager aroma, too, being buttery at times. The flavors returned to expectations, with artificial elements. It smoothens out a bit, but it is still a poor beer to drink for any reason other than a new country to rate.

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!
