Monster brewery from Venezuela, just the little bit better then other beers from that class. Some citrus one can find only in forensic search. If you are on some nice beach with pretty girls around, probably you will not complain about this stuff.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting, thanks to Travlr! Not a sour, but something to break up the tasting with a new country tick. Poured like a standard cheap Euro-style pale lager - which I guess is a good thing to be consistent, I guess. Corn. Some skunk. Sweetness, no real bitterness in this one. Not totally awful to be fair.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Venezuela’s national macro lager, with moussy, cream white, stable head and pale golden blonde colour with somewhat greenish hue, cristal clear. Aroma of popcorn, sourish grains, iron and a faint hint of grass. Blandly sweetish, corny taste, grainy sourishness, metallic with thin body and very low to almost non-existent hop bitterness in the finish. Acceptable for what it is but not distinctive in any kind of way, as with all macro lagers.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared at Leighton’s. BB July 2015, 4.5%. Very pale yellow, clear, sparkling, small white head. Aroma is strange - musty malt, piney / minty. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is thin and watery, some cream cracker, a little drying booze. Almost nothing to it at all, but nothing particularly offensive I suppose.
