A clear golden lager beer with a characteristic body, fine bitternes and delicate aroma. Because of its full-bodied and balanced flavor it has become the preferred choice for those who enjoy a premium quality beer. This beer is sold in USA as Famosa

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.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2007
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.

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.

obguthr (5644) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2007
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.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Almost zero aroma except for a faint sourness. Least color I’ve ever seen in a beer. Completely clear with a hint of yellow. Sour straw taste, thin and watery.

Can: Poured a golden yellow straw color with white head. The aroma was grainy harvest. The taste was grain and malt. Drinking beer!

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
