Straw colored. I would say with most warm weather lagers (red stripe, cristal, etc) that they taste best where they are brewed. So drinking a brew from El Salvador in snowy Breckenridge wasn't the most satisfying experience.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear
light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain), with a strong note
of DMS, some solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish
is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery
texture, fizzy carbonation. The nasty industrial aroma is about the best
thing it has going for it.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (32oz bottle) Big bottle for a big occasion - I am now a common-law uncle! Wow, the sense of commitment now strikes me. Pours a huge, frothy, white head and a clear gold body. Nose of grassy pastures, stagnant insoles. Easy drink'n. Slightly hoppy flavour. Watery to the finish. Enough to keep to straight on the road. Responsibility!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
32 oz. bottle Ultra-pale in appearance, almost clear. Light, pure-white head on first pour, quickly disappears. Actually has a reasonable aroma, very sweet hops, somewhat fetid. Taste is lightly malty, almost imperceptibly bitter, but hardly offensive. Very easy to drink, quite quenching, and easily beats out most domestics in palatability...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer, but a little bland like ameircan light beer. Interesting fruity flaovor, not sure where its from. Overall not bad for the cheap price, if I want a cheap American beer, I’ll take this any day instead since the price is about the same.

Massively watery. Of the three El Salvador beers I’ve tasted today, this is the lightest, so if you favor flavor, I’d go with the Suprema or Pilsener (all three of these beers are from the same brewery (and it shows)). This beer comes in a huge 48oz bottle so it looks like sort of a wino beer (think Crazy Horse). Heavily carbed.
