A standard lager with perhaps a bit more head and a bit more flavor than usual. I'll stick to Mineragua when in Bolivia.

Not as bad as I thought it would be. It actually tastes a little like a beer. Pours light gold with a big fluffy head and decent lacing. Comes up a little short in the taste department, but you can tell a little effort was spent here. Clear and crisp.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
First time I have ever seen let alone tasted a beer from Bolivia.
I got this in the 12 oz bottle( brown glass) with gold foil round the neckhas a nice gold label with a city snuggled under a snow topped mountain on it.
This beer poured very gold..with a huge head which lingers quite some time..nice to look at.
Nice malty smell..some lemon in their too ..but little..good srtong a roma for a lager.
Taste however is on the average side..though unlike American macros there is not so much additives noticable.
Feels nice in the mouth which is strange given its lively carbonation..but it feels good.
Very drinkablke beer..wouldn't say no if i were offered this.
A nice surprise from Bolivia

They pretend to be using really clear water. It tastes like it. Nothing to remember about, besides that it's brewed at 12,000 feet.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Rerate Mouthfeel is a bit harsh this time around; very bland almost metallic flavor Original 2.3 Fares just a tad better than most South and Central American lagers. Slight wet paper bag aroma - but not overwhelmingly skunky. Very pale, almost see through appearance. White pithy head that leaves a good coating of lacing on the glass. Flavor is somewhat refreshing - a tad bit of honey sweetness on the front end - just a bit of metal in the aftertaste. About on par with a Miller Genuine Draft in my book. Could see drinking this with a spicy dish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Palest beer I've ever seen, nearly clear: Picture the shade of 2 liters of water with 1 drop of yellow food coloring. Smells of corn and water, actually are intriguing. Taste is very light and mild with corn and light berry flavors. This beer is definately drinkable and could go well with a South American dinner dish. Better than its percentile suggests. I'd put it in the 12-15%

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Insanely clear in colour with a thin white head. Smells of fresh corn and coriander seeds. Clean taste, nothing offensive, all of the tastes are very subtle. Clean palate, not drying nor overpowerful. A decent beer, especially for the summer! I split this 12 ounce bottle with fellow Ratebeerian: JonR888710 which he bought at Total Wine in McLean, Virginia.

Aroma was eggy and tangy - harsh hops. Pale straw clear with no head. High fizziness and light watery body. Light taste, like lager more than a pilsener. Light clean after. Not my style.
