Very decent South American beer. Very refreshing on a hot spring night. Bit of a sweet aroma - light golden appearance. Head is thin and white and quickly dissipating - not much lacing. Flavor has a bit of a biscuity flavor to it with an underlying sweetness. I see that it is considered a Helles - that explains it - too much body for a pilsener. All in all, a refreshing beer and beats most South American beers hands down.

Not to light, not too dark. Love the flavor. Don't drink it that much, which is why I wont get sick of it. Being the first rating i've made here, i'm not sure what else to say. if you haven't tried it...try it

I can't say that this beer lit my fire, however I can say that compared to other South Am. swill this stuff goes down really easily. The usual oily sweetness is not there, in fact it was quite crisp despite being un-refrigerated. Slightly sweet, not overflowing with flavour but perhaps that's a good thing.

Bottle. I love the fact that my local burrito shop down the street carries odd beers like this. A light golden color with a white head. The aroma is pretty soft. The flavor is a little sweet and dry (cardboard).

golden colour, few head, hoppy with notes of peanuts, medium-bodied, some character, sweet and oily, herbal notes in the finish, well-balanced - very drinkable for a south-american lager

Very little carbonation (no head), blond/clear color, very clean tasting, dry aftertaste. Not a bad beer!

For a macrobrewed lager this has a lot of malt character. It has a soft palate and light spiciness. I would class this as a Dortmunder, myself. Last winter I decided to check out this taquiera in Koreatown I’d heard about, Tacos El Asador. I found this beer there, which is the first time in years I’ve accidentally discovered a new beer in Canada. Combined with the fantastic and dirt cheap food, this helped make El Asador one of my favourite restaurants. In fact, I think I’ll go there for lunch today.
