Big industrial janitorial strength cleaner looking bottle - at least it’s brown! The pour is translucent with a thin, soapy white head. Aroma is not skunky, not much there at all, a faint trace of wet paper bagness. Flavor is pretty much nonexistent as well, goes down very smooth on this hot October day working in the yard actually - for that I am grateful. Finish is just a bit metallic, but overall, a notch above the other offerings from this South American behemoth.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Crystal clear, extremely light yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head... gone like a flash of black gun powder. Leaves an eery, weeping, drippy lace. The aroma and flavor are fairly nondescript, but not at all offensive. Lightly sweet. Light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, crisp, clean finish. It’s HOT in El Salvador, right? Maybe I would have enjoyed this pale lager more if it were hot and humid in the house instead of crisp and cool thanks to a late Summer, early morning breeze whisping in through open windows... or not.

Fast disappearing white head, pale yellow body. Mild aroma of hops, corn and rice. Thin in the flavor, malt and hops with a slight citrusy tone. Just another bland international lager....

Light yellow or straw-colored. No head. Prickly carbonation comes and goes. Watery. Corny malts. Slightly sour. Cardboard aromas. Bland and boring.

Sampled AIBA 2004. Aroma and taste had a kind of stale slight malt. No real bitterness or aftertaste. I hope this didn’t win an award.

Pales yellow color I have ever seen. Smells of hay/straw. Flavor is repugnent. Taste like moldy corn. Disgusting.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2004
This stuff has a clear very pale yellow body topped by a thin head with little lacing. The aroma is bitter, grassy and hoppy with a slightly sweet maltiness in the background. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter and malty with grassy hop notes. Light bodied, tingly from the carbonation and smooth.

Clear with a tint of yellow. Smells much like rainwater and tastes like water with a lot of iron and crap that makes water taste bad, however, it was not skunky and therefore was kinda smooth, so it saves face on that.

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.
