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.

This really is quite pitiful. It pours just off clear with a hint of urine in both colour and aroma. The flavor is as weak as expected with subtlest notes of corn and hay. This is what I call a bad breath beer.

Bottle. Straw yellow with a small white head. Nose is grainy with faint lemon, light corn and sweet malt. Taste is odd. A weird rubbing alcohol like taste on top of corn syrup, cereal, light lemon and straw. Body is not as light as expected, not is the carbonation too extreme. Finish is just as bad as the taste when it comes too the rubbing alcohol like flavor. Light straw, more grains, hint of lemon and corn syrup.

Corn and bitters on the nose. Light yellow color with a stubborn, puffy white styrofoam head. Thin and musty in the hop department, with an abscence of malts that tilts the beer precariously toward the "skunk" element. Suprisingly clean on the finish, however.

Carrots, bell pepper, grass, lemon poppyseed muffins and a touch of meztizo underpants...or perhaps I’m mistaken...? This is obviously CORN...!!! It’s horrible and should therefore be properly served in a dimpled mug, apparently!

UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 Tried this wagain recently as Famosa and gave it the exact same rating. Very pale yellow body with a white head. The carbonation has some very small bubbles. The aroma is grasswith some carrots and bell peppers. The taste is a combination of lemon poppyseed muffins and bell peppers. The sweetness is strange in this one, but makes it unique. The mouthfeel is a little sticky for the style.

some yeast in the aroma. Light bodied with little flavor and some finishing bitterness. At least it’s clean.
