Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
A yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma contains notes of corn as well as hints of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of corn and light notes of malt and hops, over a thin body.

madsberg (11405) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2005
Bottled: Very pale coluored. Clear. Off white head . Grassy aroma. Flavour is light sweet and artificial. Thin bodied. Leaves no impression on the palate. Shitty beer, but its a new country.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Can... Almost colorless. Tiny, fizzy, white head. Smells of spent mash, jalapeno, corn and lemon zest. Perfectly-balanced, seltzer-like flavor. Ultra light-bodied and fizzy. Finishes very dry. Thanks to Angela for bringing this can back from Bogota!

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.

bytemesis (6946) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
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.

reebtogi (5731) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
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.

dwyerpg (5673) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Nice and heady with a bad pilsener/lager aroma. This Bogota beer has a very bad head. And a flavor that almost matches. Well, it’s a little better warmer but still not good.

mansquito (5457) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2008
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.

Nekronos (4111) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 30, 2008
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.
