2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very bland lager, sadly ubiquitous in Ecuador. The other main brand, Club, is slightly better but not as common. Still, after a week of only this, you get somewhat used to it... And in it’s defense, it’s no worse than many US or European bland lagers.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
You"ll find this beer all over the country. No aroma at all, water with a little bit of bitterness, but it doesn’t seem hops are involved. Awful beer. Months ago I discovered is made with 50% rice.....Don’t try the canned one, taste worst.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle straight from South America - courtesy of my friend Ashley. Clear lighter golden pour with an initial foamy white head that faded to a ring. Corn adjunct nose and taste, with some mild hop elements. Not bad for a pale lager - more character than BMC.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
600 ml. collectors bottle, football edtion, broguht from mt friends from a Tripo to Ecuador.. Pale golden colour, thin head with no retention or lace. Smell pure and simply doesn’t exist. Light body, in fact it’s like water with some gas. Taste? Some grains and nothing more to add. Don’t waste your time.

Bottle 33cl. Blonde with white head. Corny aroma. Taste to... nothing and palate to... (I don’t know). Watery, I think that this beer is water plus CO2.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
My first beer upon arriving very late at night in Quito, I proclaimed it the best bad beer I had ever had. As the trip went on, Club became my go-to beer, but this was my first love.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I had a few of these beers while in Quito, Ecuador. The beer had a light grainy, corny hops aroma with some adjunct. It had a clear, light gold body with a slight head and retention. It tasted somewhat grainy and bitter, with not much else to the flavor, and was a bit bland. The beer was smooth, but light and watery, with lowish carbonation.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear, pilsener golden with a creamy, white head leaving some laces. Neutral aroma, perhaps a bit of brewing cereal. Medium body with lightly sweet notes of brewing cereal. The finish is somewhat watery and sloppy without any hops.
