1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This one poured more colorless than many an American Macro.... boy, almost water-like. If this didnít have a big foamy head, then the appearance would have been a negative rating. The aroma was skunky upon opening. Flavor was all corn and sweet corn. Man, like corn syrup was in there before and after fermentation. Sticky sweet. Some honey and grass flavors. Well, stamp El Salvador in my passport now.

1 liter bottle. Light corn malt aroma. Light yellow color with small head. Barely detectable corn malt flavor with no body at all - Absolutely needs a lime wedge - This is just barely different from mineral water but at the very least, there are no bad flavors and would be a good thirst quencher.

"Thanks eagle, for get this one for a country, not for a good beer :). This one poured lighter then just about any beer i have had. Huge HUGE foamy head to it. That is all i can say on the plus side for this one Flavor was sweet and corn some grass. ah well another country off the list."

Ah, El Salvador... whereíve you been all my life. My first pale lager as a US resident and it doesnít disappoint. Pale straw colour, thick creamy white head. Aroma of straw, grass, and latex paint. Flavour is fairly watery, thin lager malt, grass and hay hoppiness and a decidedly vegetal sweetness. Reminds me of every beer I drank in Fiji. Thanks for reminding me of why I donít drink Central American beer.

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.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 A pale, skunky, boring lager. No better than mass produced American lagers.

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.

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 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.
