JorgeLee (1738) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle in Antigua. Poured very pale yellow, not much head. Hot country lager, kind of bland, not excessively corny which was a pleasant surprise. But cold, wet and bland.

Can, thanks Vip-in-Velp! Grainy, vegetable-like flavors. Hint of metal. Soft herbal notes, also in the aroma. More flavors than expected, but not especially pleasant.

Old rating. Really bad, even for a cheap lager. Thin, wet grains, stale, weird acidic aftertaste. Guatemalan though.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s flat. Thanks to Leighton for this rarity. As Famosa. Light haze on this very pale gold beer, bubbly white head. Palate is light and crisp. Very thin pale malts, trace of sweetness. Forensic amount of citrus and pine hop. Crisp dry finish. Fresh air beer!

Pours almost colorless - very pale yellow. Skunky nose. Starts with light grain and dry cider. Light bitterness. Watery, high carbonation, clean finish. Club soda-like.

The_Osprey (5954) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle share, thanks to Leighton. As ’Famosa’. Very pale yellow, still, clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is light lager malt, biscuit, a little yeasty. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is light biscuit, ozone, no real bitterness. Just a little simple and insipid. But a Guatemala tick!

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Thanks to Leightonian. It pours clear pale gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, grainy, papery, lemony rind, soap and rice paper. The taste is crisp, straw, grainy, white bread, pepper and paper with a dryish finish. Light, watery body and average carbonation. Doesn’t do very much for me. Basic stuff.
