2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Note this is a genuine Gallo bought in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Pours a golden pale color with less than one finger head thatquickly dissipates and shows plenty of carbonation. Toasted hops and mild sweetness up front. Largely no hop flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium malty finish. For a macrobrew lager, this one is good compared to many of the other Central American lagers I’ve had and even some of the macrobrews in the US.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!
