2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
liter bottle in Playa Samara, I love that they recycle and reuse the glass bottles here. Taste is much more present than the other national Tiko beer, faint malt a bit of grassy hops, solid beer for the price, excellent for drinking on the beach. The ABV is also higher than Imperial so there is really no reason to drink Imperial... Will be putting more of these back during my stay

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Straw blonde and lightly carbonated for a pale lager. Rather dank beery aroma and flavor somewhat resembling Milkwaukee’s best (aka "THE BEAST"). Not a drainpour--as long as it’s served very cool. Eck.

Pale gold with a frothy, lacy, lasting white head. Smells of stale malt, corn and dirt. Medium oily body. Tastes of malt with a bland, finish. Like a beer that’s been open for a few days. Blah.
