Had this, and a number of its compatriots, after taking a chicken bus the Guatemalan coast. Had it with a dinner of rice, chicken, and black beans in a ramshackle hotel. It was cold and delicious.

Very refreshing beer from an unbelievable brewery in Guatemala! The quality of the product is top notch with the worlds best ingredients. The aroma is light and effervescent. The taste is full bodied yet has a refreshing good beer taste.

Famosa (Gallo, or Rooster) has a thick, white head, and a bubbly, straw appearance, with even a little lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, bready, biscuity barley malt, and the flavor is sweet, malty, sugary, and a bit hoppy as well. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Famosa finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and imminently drinkable. This is an example of a near-perfect lager beer. It’s delicious! RJT

Até em paises como a Guatemala, onde se espera beberexcelentes derivativos da tequila, esta cerveja é uma boa surpresa, com certo amargor estranho ao primeiro gole, mas depois acostuma-se; a carbonatação , altíssima, é um defeito típico das cervejarias sul-americanas, que tem essa tendencia, obrigadas por pesquisas de mercado.
Cerveja boa, com caráter

Despite of quality and taste, what makes a beer is also the athmophere it can produce. In such case Gallo beer is a great example of what a beer can do by itself... Great memories from Guate!!!

Pale yellow ale. It has an aroma derived from corn. Taste is great. The better of Central American beers. It’s the best in Guatemala, although Dorada is right up there as well. Recommend to anyone, because I will have again and again!

Granted, the beer in Guatemala is pretty bad as a rule, so to say it is the best of the bunch, may be a bit of an understatement. However this is a charming and very refreshing beer. It is a bit like a Budweiser yet not lacking the malty flavor that beer should have. Really it is similar of Pilsner Urkel or Butvar of the Czech Republic. It is standard good solid beer

A surprisngly good beer, despite being a lager. Amongst other things that lager beers are usually lacking, this beer has color, head, lacing, and flavor. Pours golden yelow with a 1.5 inch head that lasts a long time. Exhibits good bubbling. Sweet malt aroma. Very full flavored, like medium-bitter hops. Full-bodied mouthfeel. Superb lacing. This beer halds its carbonation without being over-carbonated. Good from start to finish. Goes great with meatloaf. Should be enjoyed by college kids on a campus near you.
