A very refreshing beer with delicate taste and bouquet. A soft golden color with a subtle aftertaste.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow with very small frothy white head, sweetish bread aroma, high carbonation, very little malt taste, weak watery body, abrupt finish. Slightly more tasty than water.

Yet another example of brand proliferation from the mighty Cerveceria Centro Americana, this one appears to be a premium brand commanding roughly a 5 quetzal premium over Gallo. Not worth it. Tastes of nothing really, ever so slightly sweet.

355 ml bottle - Monte Carlo is quite hard to describe. Firstly Iíve had water with stronger tastes than this but despite its lack of taste, non-existent aroma and palate it is actually refreshing. Sampled twice now in 27-34c Guatemalan heat, it is really refreshing. Perhaps looking at it purely from a domestic market it makes sense, and on top of this it is actually sold as a more premium alternative to the mainstream Gallo. Having said that the Gutemalans Iíve asked prefer either Gallo Ice or Moza to Monte Carlo.

Better than Bud or some of the other adjunct/corn lagers. Better than Corona. I had it from a can, so no light fouling.

Color amarillo palido, buena carbonatacion. Poca espuma e inestable. Ligero aroma a lupulo. Sabor ligero a malta y lupulo. Cuerpo muy aguado. Seguramente refrescante con mucho calor (como agua carbonatada). Botella @ hardrock cafe en guatemala.

Another random lager from a random developing country, so what else is new? This one has pretty much no aroma, there really is nothing there. The appearance is a boring yellow but at least there is some head. Flavour is bitter hops with some grassiness. Itís harsh on the finish. This is a poor excuse for a "premium" lager.

355ml bottle. Clear gold with thin soapy head. Aroma is of weak malts and sweets?! Very sweet soapy taste with a bitter grassy finish. Not great.

Foffern (1698) - BodÝ, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Has a clear light straw colour with a medium, white, whipped eggwhite-like head. Aroma of sweet corn, pale malt, lots of grass and some citrus. More grass in the flavour with hay and pale malt. Has a watery and slick mouth feel, and a very light bitterness. The beer has a strange aroma with an expected flavour.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Green longneck, foil-shrouded cap, bad label. Very pale and clear beer. Not much white head. Corny malt aroma, not hoppy - (not skunked due to the green bottle either.) Unpleasant, pils-type hopping, tinny. Not sweet, a bit tangy. Starchy mouthfeel, malty finish. I liked their dunkler bock better -- this isnít a bargain at $5.99. Winn Dixie, Magnolia.
