1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle at Baby Wale in DC, labeled as Famosa, pours a clear gold with some thin white head and lots of apparent carbonation. Nose has some stale grains, a little moldy grass, a little wet newspaper. Flavor follows along, moldy grains, watery, lightly metallic, some lemon. Mercifully watery finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a clear medium yellow with a small head. The smell is dull mild malt, not much more. The taste is a boring light lager ending with a touch of fruit and dryness. Mild carbonation and light inb body.

Thanks to CH-303 for this 12 fl.oz. bottle . Grainy nose. Very awful start. Grain, slightly sour, just awful! The aftertaste is bitter-sharp, lots of grain, even undrinkable!
