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

very light in color (yellow) with a spare head. It had a strong sour smell with not much flavor except for skunk.

Part of an 8-pack of "International Beer Selections". The whole 8-pack was a bit of a dud, and this was probably the worst of the bunch. Aroma of grain and poop, really crappy corny flavour. Don’t bother, unless you really need a rating from Guatemala to get a new country on your list.

Very pale yellow with some hopcitric and thiol aromas. The taste was watery, with slight hop and ricey favor hints, along with a thiol element. Forgettable in every way.

Bottle. Poured a clear pale golden with a quickly-receding white head. Nose was of grains, corn, and other sweet malts. Nothing offensive here, but weak and unexciting. Corn, veggie mush, light floral, and faint rubbing alcohol in the flavor. Palate was grainy with sour veggie highlights and a corn/grain finish. Watery. This wasn’t completely awful, but not an experience that I care to revisit.

There is an aroma of grain to Famosa. The color is light pale yellow with a rapidly disappearing white head that is almost nonexisten upon the pour. Flavor is weak and grainy with a poor finish on the palate.

ghawener (1522) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 25, 2006
Can: Pale yellow, highly carbonated with a flaky thin head. No distinct aroma and the side-flavour is of skunk, chemical and metal. And it gets worse with every sip.

A very pale yellow coloured beer pours out of the can with a modest white fizzy head. The nose is slightly fruity with just a hint of grassy hops. The body is fizzy and actually has a light hint of bitterness towards the finish. An okay beer from Guatemala.

Cockiest beer ever. Horriblest beer ever. 2 of us fought one 12 oz. down. Famosa por nunca. Guatemala, please stop I beg of you. Anything that says Cerveza = Crap beer. -Joe Saia

Wateriest beer ever. Smells like adjunctyness. The only redeeming quality of this beer is the awesome rooster on the label.
