Another Latin American beer called Pilsen. This one’s from Colombia. I liked it slightly better than Aguila and Club Colombia, but then it was the first one I had here. It was a little crisp and grainy at first at least.

Tap, at a festival in Medellin. Pours yellow gold with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy, malty, typicaly of the type. Taste follows aroma, minimal hop presence and a slightly unpleasant aftertaste.

355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a fast dissipating 2 finger white head. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with a average hop bitterness. A decent clean finish with no real lingering aftertaste. Ok to drink on a hot day.

Not that bad, just a little incipit. The aroma is quite strong and the taste is like of something is missing. TH efom sticks to the glass though.

This beer is pretty terrible. The worst of my Colombian beer trying as of yet. It tastes like metallic pisswater for lack of a better word.

This is the rock bottom of Colombian beers. There is a reason that this beer only costs 50cents on the street....it is swill. Bad, bad, bad....looks like dirty water, has no smell or taste.....just bad news. I drank mine with a grilled cheese sandwich....and well....both were horrible. Don’t drink this. please.
