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

i guess this is why guatemala isn’t known for its beer? extremely pale yellow, pathetic corn and sour hops aroma. no flavor to speak of, but at least it’s smooth. i would drink this, but definitely not savor it.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle. Pale yellow capped by a thick foamy head. Nose smells faintly of dirty diapers. Thin, watery, and cardboardish. Slightly bitter for a PL, but goes down smooth. Drinkable, but by no means a quality beer. I could consume mass quantities of this stuff, but not because I like it.

White head. Have a small aroma of citrus. The beer has not much taste at all. Realy bad beer.

07.10.04 Can (Gallo). Got a couple of cans of this stuff from my boss to try. He wasn’t totally sure how they had come into his possession. I figured, ’what the hell, it’s Guatemalan.’ Strikingly clear and pale yellow; huge fluffy, white head that vaporizes almost instantly. Amazingly, I detect no skunk. Aromas are mostly unpleasant and insist on permeating the ambience. Somewhat of a hay smell. Flavor is disturbingly cardboardy sweet followed by a hop bite as though I just bit into some grass. Not as bad as I expected, but still bad. Horrible, lingering aftertaste of something or other - wait, is that the taste of the water in canned green beans?

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Shockingly pale, small compact head that utterly fades. Smells frankly horrible, a touch of crap in the note. Flavor a tiny bit better, as it is almost non-existant. A really bad beer.

Looks like urine. Small head. Aroma from yeast and pear cider. Flavor is like pear cider mixed with water. Really bad.

<->Bottled<i/> Extremely pale. Small and fizzy head. A cardboard aroma with notes of boiled vegetables. Extremely thin vegetable-flavour with maybe some bitterness.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2004
The palest beer I ever seen. Very paly yellow with green notes. Small fizzy white head. Green vegetables and grass in aroma. Malty sweet flavour with grass and burnt paper. Slightly grassy and sour finish. Watery texture.

pilsnerrogge (2467) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2004
Very pale. Creamy but low head. Slight grassy aroma. Thin and fizzy. Flavour is glue and a tiny little piece of hops.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2004
Bottled. Very pale yellow. Cottony foam head. Grassy aroma, somewhat sourish with an undertone of green apples. Decent malt sweetness with a light bitter finish. A little salty in the finish, with shrimp notes.
