Not sure if the Bolivians are aware of the difference between the two tropical lagers. But it was like a pilsener, good with traditional chicken. Thick foam.

Had this at the "bar" on a cayman filled river in the Amazon basin in Las Pampas near Rurrenbaque, Bolivia. Definitely the most epic beer run I’ve ever made. A bit more flavorful, fruity, and refreshingly dry and tart than the standard, but not a huge difference.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of faint fruits, light malt, cardboard and even a tiny amount of hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malty taste with a bit of sugars and a little fruityness throughout. Aftertaste, clean, tart and malty - very nice actually! Overall, definitely one to try - I was impressed! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased out of the corner store (you buy the bottles through a jail-like barred window) in Cochabamba, Bolivia (across from the Burger King) on 13-August-2006.

Bottle, pours a carbonated light gold with no head. A grainy malt aroma. This and fizzy palate, but a slight fruity touch to the otherwise dry malty flavour.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
During my 4 months in Bolivia I had this quite a time. The locals often mix this beer with coca-cola! the taste of this beer is not so good though so it is understandable. Big bottle. Straw colour, small very short lasting head. Aroma of something sourish and malty. The flavour is somewhat harsh with a taste of some sour malt. Like any not so gppd brew it tastes better when served cold.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Straw-gold color, regular white head. Smells of grains, corn, malt, typical. Tart taste, different than the typical macro-Pilseners. This beer has a heavier malt ody, some lemon. Great for a hot day of swatting mosquitoes in the tropic heat. Good too, if you want to try a Bolivian Pilsener just a click or two off the mainstream.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Just another pale lager, just enough crispness, though, to make it refreshing, and just enough flavour of papaya to make it go down. Nice when it's ice cold and you're sweltering in the oppressive heat and humidity of the Bolivian amazon basin.
