1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pouring a desperately pale yellow, like an old man’s fingernails, famosa exposed bespeaks a closer proximity to tinny tap water than serious brewing. dropping a kernel of corn into it would surely double it’s intensity. if it were architecture, it would be a shack so poorly built that it’s own head would cause it to collapse into splinters. it is aromatic, but not of pleasant things: this beer has that kind-of rubbery smell of well-chewed dog toys, plain lip-balm, lightly composting corn cobs and dank magazine paper. naturally, it’s limited flavor would be entirely arrested by the addition of a lemon wedge, unsqueezed. but one must concede that the drink is certainly wet, and that’s a good thing when consumed under perfect conditions--like after being locked in a cargo container in the mojave desert for nine days. a flavor of white grape and lemon, plus some tinniness derived from the parsimonious use of industrial grade hop-concentrate. oh, and i’m pretty sure that this was barrel aged. no, i don’t mean in an oak barrel-- i mean a gun barrel. thanks to clyde for a fun, if somewhat punishing bottle.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Big thanks to JTClockwork for this country tick. Pours clear gold with a white head. Plain grain and corn, faint sweetness, and over carbonated. Lingering weird grainy notes. Not awful, I guess.

Can. Pours clear pale straw with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast, skunk, and hops. Mildly bitter, hoppy flavour, with estery notes and refreshing cirtic touches. Rough afteraste. Perhaps good on a beach in Guatemala but I am not there.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, 5%. Bready aroma, citric. Very pale yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is fruity, citric, lemony. Seems to have a little estery note, but it does not really bother me. I guess this is refreshing enough in a hot country.

Can - 350ml. Piss-like very light blond body with lively carbonation and and instantly fading white bubbly head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its watery taste carries corny, sweet, and herbal notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Good thirst quencher. Thanks Scott for bringing this back from Guatemala.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. The colour is golden pale straw with a big white head. Aroma of sweet corn, pale malt and hay. Pretty light. Light is also the taste with just some pale malt and citrus. Has a light and slick mouth feel, and a very light bitterness. An okay pale lager with a light aroma.
