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

Canning codes are all weird.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a pale golden hue. The head is dense and foamy, slightly messy with a white hue.
Aroma: A slight whiff of skunk, despite being in a can, corn, and a sulfury background coming off as eggs and matches. Not very appealing.
Taste: Not as offensive as the aroma, but this is sweet adjunct through and through.
Palate: Almost full-bodied but lacking in carbonation for the style.
Overall: This is a beer I could drink if I werenít thinking about it, but overall itís rather bad. The aroma is harsh and the flavor lacks any crispness, itís just sweet adjunct.

A pretty typical lager. It has some more flavor than an American lager but is still pretty plain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at El Paraiso in Cornelius. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Corn, straw, pils, grainy flavors. Pretty light lager. Meh.

I think this beer is a lot safer than regular Guatemalan water, but not much flavor here, an average light lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

As "Famosa" here in the states. Pours a very pale golden with some floating flakes of sediment and a fair, bubbly white head that settles to a film and a ring, leaving just a couple lace spots. Nose involves soft bubblegum, some husky grain, a touch of mint, and not much else. Somewhat sweet, very lightly bitter. Extremely light bodied, fair carb, a bit watery, with a fairly clean and lightly doughy finish. Nothing offensive here. Nothing necessarily interesting either. Iíd probably go for Schlitz before this, but itís ok.

Nothing special about this brew. Pretty watery and forgettable. Pour is very thin colored and no head.

Taste of a cheap macro lager. But I sure enjoyed them when I was in Guatemala.

This quality rate was supplied by the fine folks at Beer Run. The pourís clear gold with a modest white head that quickly settles. The nose is white bread, newspaper, a bit of honey. The taste is green apple, pear, honey. Soft grain. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, not nearly as terrible as I was afraid it might be.

This beer was very refreshing in the context of a fantastic Mexican lunch. Light, macro, flavor.

Poured a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of grains and cereal, corn and light fruity notes. A light body with moderate carbonation, a bit watery. Finish the same as taste with a bit of a bitter grain ending. Best served cold and drink fast, as it warmed up aroma and taste begin to deteriorate. There are a lot of good brews out there, this is not one of them.
