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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20

Bottled. Aroma is grain, skunky hop and lemon in the back. Pale yellow color, white head, few lace. Smoke? Do I taste smoke? Maybe just a little. Grain and bad hops of course. Thin.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweetish, grainy, very pale. Fainly smoky flavor, like Bamberg rauch, but then totally wrong. Faintly citric. Interesting failure.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Citrussy and light joppy aroma. Pale yellow coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is a little smoked, meaty, some hops and citrus. Watery body. Much like a rauchbier, but in the wrong way.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale yellow colour. Flavour is very boring with a "peaty" touch. I am not sure that peaty is the right word, but this taste seems to be a more or less general characteristic of Bolivian pale lagers. Maybe it comes from the use of "mountain water"? Other than that, a bland beer with a terrible palate. Local price: 5,-
