2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was by a hair the best of the beers we had in Ecuador. Of the three main brands, this one is the strongest. Typical Euro-style lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had a couple bottles of this poured into a pint glass while in Quito, Ecuador. The beer had a pleasant grainy hops aroma with a bit of cereal and straw. It had a good grainy bitter taste with a slight sourness. The beer had average carbonation and a somewhat lively mouthfeel, although it was somewhat dry. The appearance was a mostly clear gold color with a modest bubbly white head that had some slight cling and retention.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours standard golden with a quite active head. Aroma is cardboardy, and the flavour is dominated by slightly funky malt. Decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Quito, 2010: Club was probably the best beer I tasted in Ecuador. Its malt side was pretty weak and it carried some unappealing notes of corn in the background, but it was the only beer I sampled that actually had noticeable hop aromas. Not a lot, to be clear, but at least it offered something. Unfortunately, I couldn’t drink more than a couple bottles of Club at a time because its carbonation was so fluffy and over-gassed that it made me feel bloated.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
light and fizzy with decent body enhanced by malt and hop characeristics that owe to good brewing skills and yet lack of materials. a bit of fruit punch with a tight finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Only very slightly better than their competitor in Ecuador, owing to just a bit more hop presence. Otherwise it’s got the wet, moldy grain flavor that many other South American lagers have.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Much yellow pale color. Modest bubbly aspect. Light and evanescent head. Unusual aroma, washed-out, with light rumors of dampen grain. Slightly fizzy taste with aromas of watery cereals.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
big very smooth fluffy head, like marshmallows. Color is your typical light golden. Aroma is of corn and champagne, while flavor is much cleaner than exopected- sugarry and grainy. Palate is quick and crisp but leaves a little grain in the aftertaste. Much better than expected. Bottle from an Ecuadoran co-worker
