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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Skunky and crappy pale lager. Aroma of dishwater, some beef. If it’s smoke, quite unpleasant smoke.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.1 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.

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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.
