2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz. brown bottle, labelled as "Famosa". Very light straw colour, holds a small creamy white head. Aroma is grassy, just short of skunky with some light sweet malt sneaking in. Taste is sweet, grainy and grassy. Light grass hop lingers in the finish. Carbonation is fairly strong, body is light.

Bottle from World Market. Light yellow color upon pouring. Acidic grainy aromas. Flavor is grassy with a hint of sweet maltiness. Drinkable, but not very good.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can... sampled in Managua. Pours into the glass with a light straw color and a soap bubble head that dies down quickly. Aromas are of sweet grain (corn) with a little bit of a grassy/hay presence. The head is completely gone now, leaving nothing but a few rogue bubbles wandering around. Flavor is weak and grassy... that’s about it...Very watery and a little bit of sweet malt comes through, but not going to win any awards with me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a clear light golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Lively carbonation with tiny bubbles. Aroma is sweet grain and grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened grain with some nice hop bitterness. Light to medium body. A nice Pale lager from Central America. Worth a try.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hay aroma. Light golden color, medium head, no lacing. Pretty flavorless, although there is a tinge of mulberry. Sorry folks, that’s all the flavor there appears to be.

This beer was ok, my bottle was labled Famosa Lager Beer. IT had a smooth after taste, and set well, but other than that, just an average beer
