3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad, a good lager, although the good flavor goes away soon, and starts to be a normal bittter lager.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(bottle - 350 ml) Clear and pale yellow pour with a fizzy and bubbly white head. Aroma smells like a cow barn. Dry and slightly musty taste with hints of corn, grass and some wet hay. Very watery.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Damp, sweet malt aromas, like spent sugarcane. Some hops exist in this dark yellow lager, too, and they are barely detectable and not assertive. Simple flavor profile with grains, corn, and a hop/malt mixture that is uneven, but not skunky. Not my favorite Latin beer by a long shot, but it does have some redeeming richness.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bright golden body with minor stray particulates and a thick, sudsy white head. Moderately offensive aroma of rubber, new sneakers, perfume, and old limes. Strange, rubbery flavor like they threw condoms into the mash tun or something. Mostly dry and left a papery feel on the tongue. Something is clearly wrong here. A drainpour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a golden body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nothing good about this beer. Small white head. Very clear yellow color, almost transparent. Piss appearance. Skunky aroma. Weak flavor even for a lager. It’s not bitter nor sweet, just watery. Thin body. A generic cheap south-american lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at the Brickskeller on 11-13-05. Straw yellow. Small white head. Nose is slightly grassy, bready and has a hint of buttered biscuit. Not nearly as dreadful as I thought. Taste is much grainier with lots of cereal, light corn, sweet malts, and a hint of grass. Body is light an fizzy. Finishes with more grainy notes and cereal. Light grass and buttery notes.

Strong, but very tasteful. An absolutely world class beer. My favourite, that should be imported to a lot more countries in the future.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
What has Australia done to deserve this ghastly Bolivian import? Come on Bolivia, what have we ever done to you? Despite reading the other ratings here before tasting, I was still genuinely shocked at this. It doesn’t look that bad: pale straw colour, with a thick, lacing head. Nothing too awful about the aroma, either: a squeeze of lemon and some wet dog. But it tastes like a damp attic. Musty leather, mouldering cardboard boxes, the stumps of rotting root vegetables, my grandma’s spare room - this is so bad it’s fascinating. Can’t be this bad in Bolivia. Must have lost something in transit. Fetch me that Aventinus in the fridge - quick, it’s an emergency... (350ml bottle)

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2006 From the can, and possibly because I have just come back from a 2 hour walk it didn’t seem that bad. But it only takes a few moments to realise what you are actually drinking. Looks ok but it is a pale yellow and a nondescript nose adds to the disappointment of the experience. Come back next century to see what the next offering is like.

Another country and only 13 to go to equal Linc for this country. Well, if the quality of this beer is anything to go by I won’t be threatening soon. It looks thin and pale and the head insipid. Yellow colour seems to mean yellow flavour with a metallic afterburn. No other similarity with beer apart from the fact it says cerveza on the can.
