1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
600-ish ml bottle at a random Chinese restaurant in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Poured a clear golden straw colour with an initially two-finger, though slowly facing, frothy white head. A pretty standard South American lager offering with notes of corn, grain, lemon and a gentle hop presence in the finish. It’s clean and drinkable enough, light-bodied with medium carbonation but wholly unexciting in general.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Same label as Tropicals but different tradition. A little more bitter and more even like a pilsener and good with local food.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with hardly any head at all. Aroma of pale malt and cardboard. Light-bodied; Strong tastes of malt and sugars with very little else. Aftertaste has a funky malt flavour and a strong bitter malt taste. Overall, not a good choice among Bolivian beers, but definitely worth trying if you can get it. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased in La Paz, Bolivia.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 On my 1st visit to Bolivia, I had this after a dinner and a lot of drinks, so I found it really refreshing and nice. On my 2nd visit I asked for one, and I realized it was refreshing because it was really really light and watery. It was hard to find malt and hops. An average, but not bad, commercial lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, a clear gold with a frothy white head. A sweetish hop aroma with some fruit. A light and clean palate, but a little too sweet to taste for me. A good bitter hop finish.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a pale yellow color. An abundant, white foam and a very good cord. The aroma hoppy is very slight. In the palate it is strong, you feel the flavor. The sweet and bitter are present in a good equation. Probably have an finish rather tart. The body also is weak, which makes it rather liquid. In general it is good. ( the hops that remain in the palate).

This is from a bottle I brought back from La Paz a while ago and it’s settling out. Thils rating is a consensus of Paul, John, and myself. Very Pale yellow. Slightly bitter, not bad. corn. Nothing foul. dull. could do worse, I suppose.
