3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer after its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a crystalline gold with a magnificent white creamy crown, the residual lace forms a tight seal upon the glass. Nose is the standard fresh and crisp sweet malt, with the start being a bit sweet and the grain profile adequate, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is pleasantly acidic and the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste, a nice drinking beer.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Smells like every awful pale lager that I have evr drank. Very, very dusty and adjunct laden. Taste-almost non-existant. Cherry, skunk, water, adjuncts. Kevin is right-this tastes like lake water. A complete and total waste of ingredients, resources, and brewing equipment. Donít the people of El Salvador have enough problems without having to drink this swill?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 NOt bad, either, but it has a flavor in the bottom of the bottle that is a little weird. It is long fermented, but it is strange.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very pale, almost colorless, rocky white foam, large bubbles. Clean simple aroma, unoffensive. Clean, malty flavor, sweet, corn and lemon, again unoffensive but rather lacking in flavor.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Got this because of the unique bottle shape and the fact that Iíve never had a beer from El Salvador. Well, if theyíre like this then I never will AGAIN! Poor, sickly appearance -- a very weak pee color and a large head that disappears almost immediately (many drainpours seem to share the latter characteristic). Brown bottle, nevertheless manages to hold a great deal of skunk (though not overwhelming) in the flavor and the aroma. Essentially, flavor and aroma differ little from each other: some skunk, some cheap malt, some cheap tobacco papers. Finished a little more than 1/2 and had to throw the rest out.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Generously shared by TheBeerCellar2: Pours a very pale white wine color with a thin ring of white head. Mild corn and grape aroma. Fizzy, watery body has a very mild sweetness and a thin, semi-dry finish. No off-flavors, but hardly anything here to taste. I guess this is one more country I have tried.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 A pale, skunky, boring lager. No better than mass produced American lagers.

Compared to the Arriba this was almost OK. Light alcohol flavour. No hops. Clean and plain.
