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

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 I laugh reading the commercial description...what is a characteristic body? fine bitterness? delicate aroma? This beer tastes awful cold, tolerable when hot and drunk.

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!

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.

Bottle shared in London - picked up at New Beer in NYC. Pours completely clear, very pale yellow with a white cream head. The nose has some cabbage, cereal, hay. Medium sweet flavor with chips of paper, minimal bitterness, white bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet and papery with crispy cereal, straw. A decent cheap lager.

(Gallo) As Famosa, 355 ml can from vipinvelp, thanks Werner! New country tick! Served into a glass tankard. Very pale yellow colour on the body, small white head that disappears striaght away, no lacing. Typical aroma of a lager, some malts and a bit of hay, not offensive though. Sweet taste, moderate malty, grass. Medium thin body, carbonation on the low side although it seems fizzy while pouring. Not bad actually, only a bit boring, but I wouldn’t mind drinking those in a hot day.

12oz can, haha Taste of Glory 2014 World Cup Special Edition! Pours a bubbly pale staw with a medium white fluffy head. Aroma of an overly sweet lager. Very light cheap lager, almost like water slight traces of yeast and malt. It’s not offensive by any means, I could chug these on a hot day, just not much flavor to speak of.

¡No puedo terminar este mierda! It looked like piss, smelled like stale bread and fresh-cut grass, and tasted like a chicken coop. Hilariously bad.

Cunningham (5074) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2015
Clear pale yellow color with an ok white head. Mild malty and grainy aroma. Not to bad. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Malty, herbal, grainy and some cabbage in the back. Not to bad for a lager like this. I could drink another one.

visionthing (3116) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Small battle shared by Cunningham - thanks a lot! Pours clear pale yellow with a white head. Mild grainy aroma with some floral note, hints of cooked vegetables and honey. Sweetish and not much flavour, quite watery and a very light bitterness. Quite standard pale lager from a tropical country, but drinkable.
