1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I like to think of this as a cheap knock-off of Red Stripe. It has the same sort of bottle, same Caribbean marketing idea....but just doesn’t taste the same. It is popular though, and I found it everywhere I went in Colombia. I found the taste to be a bit overwhelming...a little skunky....just not enjoyable. Not terrible, but I didn’t really enjoy drinking it. I’d rather stick to aquardiente.......

A tiny 250 mL bottle brought back by my GF’s mom. A pale lager with a creamy white head. Light corn aroma. In mouth, crisp in mouth, refreshing and inoffensive.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden color pale, with efervescente and fast foam. Fresh, but typical aroma of the beers of the Caribbean. Almost without flavor, thin, slight Body. Watery, good for the heat, nothing more.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale yellow in colour, large white head, good retention, some lacing, lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is quite putrid actually, very off putting, lots of grains, very sweet, pale malts. The only thing not here was the surprising lack of corn. The flavour thankfully wasn’t nearly as revolting as the aroma, the corn is there but not overpowering, crisp but far from clean, skunky. Watery mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes quick, watery and bland. This is pretty bad stuff, no redeeming qualities what-so-ever.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours a light golden-yellow body with a rather large frothy white head. Decent retention. Doesn’t actually look TOO bad for a pale lager. Smells like hay, lots of corn husks, and sweet wort. Very light flavour that’s actually a little better than what I gathered from the aroma. Sweet cornbread, watery grains, and otherwise uneventful. Borderline offensive.
Thanks to my parents for bringing this back for me from their recent trip to Colombia.

cool, this beer is meant for those 18, very nice. This one was a very clear yellow with little head. I got sawdust and canned pears in the aroma. Very light and refreshing and absolutely no skunk.
