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 Iíve had and even some of the macrobrews in the US.

Light Yellow, Minimal Head, No Lacing. Another Beer from another Central American Country, yet it is the same looks and taste as others. Should have copy paste function, would not need rewriting same review over and over.. Drinkable and refreshing on a hot day, otherwise tasteless and boring fizz.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Skunky aroma, pale golden appearance, light bitterness/body. After reading reviews I was expecting something horrible. Itís not great, but Iíve had worse. The best way I can describe the overall experience is a Latin American version of Heineken with a cool rooster on the label.

Not a lot to say about this beer. On a hot day it would be refreshing but nothing that sets it apart from any other central America lager. Lite,crisp and easy to drink.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle share as Famosa at beers of the world. Aroma is slight sweet champagne with a sweet biscuit. Pours clear blonde with bubbles. Taste is a slight funky pilsner with some sweet stale biscuit notes. Not the worst pale lager. I would drink this again.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Large glass bottle. Clear pissy yellow pour, with a very bad looking white fizzy head. Corn, sweetness, horse piss, and somewhat stale tasting. Not good, but at least its cheap.

When I buy a beer like this I have this fleeting hope that it will take me back to the times I was getting drunk in Lago Atitlan and jumping off 11m cliffs. I hope it will bring back the taste of a taco gringa and grudgingly remind me of the endless bachata cds blasted on chicken buses ripping around the hillsides of the Guatemalan highlands. But unfortunately it only tastes like a shitty lager that would only go down well with a superior taste of Guatemalan food. And I donít have any Guatemalan food.
