2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle at pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Pale gold with a few stray floaties. A bit sweet with no discernible hop bite. Rather grainy and a bit papery. Couldn’t spy a best before date on the bottle but I know this was a bit old so I’ll cut it a little slack. I doubt it would have been much better fresh though. Not exactly horrible. Just another of those hot climate lagers that may be serviceable on its home patch (or maybe with food at a Thai restaurant) if it’s ice cold and you are thirsty but doesn’t really do anything else.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 2/22/2015. Pours crystal clear bright golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, rice, white bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Solid aromas with well balanced pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of cracker, rice, white bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, rice, bread, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish; and very clean lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very solid pale lager style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Honestly, I just picked it up because I thought the name was funny. It tasted like a semi decent Mexican beer.

Wenig Karbonisierung, aber schönes Bild im Glas. Im Geruch halt typisch Reis, im Trunk wässrig, bitter, kaum Abgang - Durchschnitt. Nette Dose.

Uma cerveja comum. Igual as brasileiras comerciais. Tem um amargor diferente ao finak do gile. Nada de especial

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent lager beer with a slightly limey taste. The smell is typical for an international lager. This beer is good for an island beer but probably would go under against the better beers. Decent but no brewing wonder.
