Lubiere (10549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
A pale blonde lager with a thick collapsing white head. In aroma, light grassy malt with faint sulfur notes, light mineral notes, boring. In mouth, a nice crisp grassy malt with faint German hops, light sulfur, OK. Did not mind this one. Bottle from Auto Mercado San Jose.

BlackHaddock (4245) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Docked at Puerto Quetzal on 27th March 2014: not much actually at the ’Cruise Terminal’ bar wise (apart from a canopy covered area with three fridges and some tables and chairs, we wished we’d stayed there to be honest: we did have three more different bottles there later). Got taken to a black sandy beach bar somewhere in/near San Jose and that is where I got a five bottle bucket of ’Gallo Q7’. Bog standard International lager, grainy, refreshing (it was a hot, sunny day) but nothing to stand it apart from so many other in this style. It was the best of the four Guatemalan beers I got to try, sadly that is not saying much!

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 12 oz can labeled as Famosa. Poured a hideous clear straw yellow with a white top that instantly vanished. Taste of old grains, skunk, and just all around awful. Surprisingly high carbonation, thin boring body. I’d rather have a steel reserve any day, and that’s saying a lot.

Light yellow color. No head retention. Tastes of cheap corn and alcohol. But its fizzy and cold.. That’s about all thats good.

blipp (6429) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2014
Can. Big thanks to JTClockwork for this country tick. Pours clear gold with a white head. Plain grain and corn, faint sweetness, and over carbonated. Lingering weird grainy notes. Not awful, I guess.

Bamsen78 (3571) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Can. Pours clear pale straw with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast, skunk, and hops. Mildly bitter, hoppy flavour, with estery notes and refreshing cirtic touches. Rough afteraste. Perhaps good on a beach in Guatemala but I am not there.

Pale yellow, transparent. Small white ring. Weak malty aroma. Sweetish taste, corn. Empty, dry finish.

MiP (13836) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Can, 5%. Bready aroma, citric. Very pale yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is fruity, citric, lemony. Seems to have a little estery note, but it does not really bother me. I guess this is refreshing enough in a hot country.
