1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Could easily be in the running for one of the palest beers that I have had. Very light straw with a bubbly white head that disipates to a small cover. Pale malt, light grass and fruit aromas. Light sweet start that shift gears quickly and turns to a mildly acidic, fizzy bitter grass flavor. Lingering acidic bitterness. This might be a quencher, but it does not fit the bill any other time.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Good freakin' lord. Atrocious. Palest of the pale, barely yellow. The WORST nose ever. I swear I smell this every morning when I'm changing my son's diapers. Seriously, it smells like a 20-month-old's crap. Taste is just terrible, sour garbage mixed with corn. Has this bizarre after-effect like seltzer water, my mouth feels funny. If this is the "Pride of Guatemala" that country has shit to be proud of. One of the worst beers I've ever had. Congratulations, Guatemala, you've given me my third-ever .5 out of 5. I finished this rating at first and went to dump the beer in the sink, but this crap isn't worthy of a drain pour. I took it outside in February and dumped it into the gutter. Not only that, I poured it into the downhill slope of the gutter, so this filth wouldn't stay on my property and would instead pollute the neighbors. The bottle has joined it out at the curb, so it will not pollute my house further. Worst. Beer. Ever.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Could be whiter than tiger woods, this is the white light blonde. Absolutely clear with a big foamy white head. Smells like corn, bad corn, evil corn. Horrible, holy christ, i just bout threw up, twice. This tastes like the flat remains of a forty only cold. good christ is this putrid.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Bottle) Pours a pale golden body and a thin, white head. Familiar skunk aroma that is found in Central and South American lagers. Clean, weak and watery flavour makes this beer fade into memory...

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Clear straw, almost watery color, decent carbonation and head formation. Malty skunky aroma. Dry cardboard flavor, slight bitterness in the finish, definite drain pour.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Well the first beer I’ve ever tried from Guatemala, and from the pour I see a pale gold color with a modest heat that is creamy in texture and bright white in color, the lace a quite thin veil over the glass. The nose is malt; fresh, clean and crisp, front is lightly sweet and the top thin in feel. Finish is stinging in its acidity, the hops light and the aftertaste dry. Well, can say much good about it, but I also feel for where its brewed in that hot and humid part of the world probably not a bad beer, although it won’t get much of a score as its just way to weak and watery to garner much enthusiasm from me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with no head so of course there is no lace. Pale golden color Slightly malty nose. Carbonation is low. Light bodied. Starts malty/hoppy, finish slightly hoppy. The ABV is 5% but it isn't noticeable and this is more like a lawn mower brew than anything exotic. Served at Passports in Glouster, MA.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I feel stupid for getting a 6/pk of this brew,but he would part it out 1 at a time.Low on flavor skunky and mild malt maybe some hops and little else.This stuff is just not good.As some of the others have said in there rating of this brew.It works if the water source is in question.Well i guess that is true but i think a purifier for the water will save you.I can't believe i have 5 more to go.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 Original score: 1.7. And really, that’s being too nice. Looks bad, is extremely dry in a bad way and has an waful aftertaste. Not good.
