COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Very pale yellow with only minor activity and the standard white soap-sudsy head. Starchy aroma. Relatively smooth flavor, obviously based in corny-malt flavors, and a gentile-enough bitter finish. Not nearly as bad as Iíd expected.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 29, 2005
Iíve had much worse South American brews, its one of the better ones Iíve tried so far.. Way more hoppiness than others, donít get me started on Salvadoran beers! A good thirst quencher, will buy again at my local Cardenas market, but Iíll wait until its a hot California again!

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2005
Very pale yellow pour. Big white head due to the carbonation. Aroma is a slight hint of sweet corn. It is very light in flavor. Maybe a hint of corn and rice as well. It is very light though and very drinkable. Iíll give this one a couple of points for the chicken on the bottle.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2005
extremely pale, crystal clear color, big carbonation, adequate, but quick to slim down, bone-white head. typical adjunct lager-y aroma, a bit corny, not unpleasant, but nothing to thrill the soul, either. Taste: "eh, itís beer", ....empty, light, hollow-bodied, ...but, oh, so drinkable! if you yearn for a thirst-quencher, a palate-lightener, an easy-drinking beverage...this is yours, own it, emrace it, love it...just as good as PBR, a step above High Life...Guatemala, you got it going on!

Light Gold with White Head. Light Skunky Aroma. Sweet Malt and More Skunkiness...

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Very pale yellow color with a fizzy head. This one was pretty skunky. Nothing really redeeming about it except an attempt at including hops at the end.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Poured a clear light yellow. Aroma of "skunk" and mild light malt. Thin body. Now where is the beer in their description.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Pours a very pale watery champagne color with a thin whispy white head. Sulfuric skunk aroma has a touch of pale malt and Saaz hops. Very watery, yet still bitter. Drinkable if you donít like flavorful beer. At least now I can say Iíve tried Guatemalan beer.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Pale blond color. Corn aroma; dry taste, with some structure, correctly bitter. Thirst quencher.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 Unsure of the bottle date (does it really matter?). Clear, light yellow, good white head. Delicate aroma of vegetables that are starting to rot. Full bodied and balanced flavor says the commercial description, but Iím not so sure. Flavor, however, is better than the aroma, with some light herbal and bitter qualities, but mainly just water. A touch of stale/cardboard like flavors, but not nearly the amount of adjunct flavor I was expecting. Thin, fizzy. Tried a beer from Guatamala? Check.
