Skunky aroma, pale golden appearance, light bitterness/body. After reading reviews I was expecting something horrible. It’s not great, but I’ve 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.

visionthing (2984) - 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.

Bottle from colonial Spirits labeled Famosa. Pours a crystal clear deep straw/light golden color with a huge frothy tightly bubbled head that lasts forever. Aromas of skunk at opening faded quickly. Light ashy mineral aromas with faint sweet malt and hints of apple and hops. The flavor is non descript fruity sweet with a hint of caramel. Little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Nothing horribly objectionable, but nothing exciting either. If I were baking in the Guatemala sun an ice cold Famosa just might do the trick.

matlev76 (20) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Very pale yellow; grassy aroma with some sour pear, and hay; very light body, overcarbonated, slightly soapy texture to the thin head; no malt at all, and only a hint of grassy hoppiness; some plastic undertones; harsh chemical aftertaste.

Holmen1 (2784) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2014
Fra prøveflaske, rester etter RBHD-samling på Askje 18.11.14: nesten fargeløs og uten skum. Lukter og smaker som urinal på ti meters avstand. Trolig det dårligste øl jeg noensinne har smakt. "Characterisitic body, fine bitterness and delicate aroma"??????

Holmen2 (1226) - NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Askje 18.11.14. Bottle labelled Famose. Extremely pale and clear yellow. Small and diminishing white head. Very uininviting aroma of sour urinal. Unfresh taste. A bit fizzy mouthfeel. Artificial sweeteners in aftertaste.

Sigmund (5317) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting, as Famosa. Pale golden colour, low white head. Artificial and "chemical" sweetish / sourish aroma. Sourish flavour, otherwise bland as hell, dust, no bitterness

abemorsten (2916) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Small shared bottle during RBHD geocatching session as "Famosa". Clear sparkling pale golden body with a white rim. Sugary urinal nose. Papery, wet wool initially then a lingering salty acidic flavor. Light body.

Tca21 (51) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Appearance: it has a yellow-golden color with a thin head. Aroma: smells like grass and skunk. Tastes like grass with water, with low bitterness. Another boring and watery lager.
