COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Translated from Spanish)
Regia Extra is produced in El Salvador since 1959. It is an exquisite beer of intense flavor, brewed carefully with a long process of maturation for the delight of our consumers.

Got this because of the unique bottle shape and the fact that I’ve never had a beer from El Salvador. Well, if they’re 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.

Bottle poured wheat yellow with smallish head and lacing. Aroma ofwet dishrah and corn. Flavor is watery, and grassy. Boring.

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

A cheap beer that will do if you do not have any other choice. There is no taste at all so at least you quench your thirst on a hot sunny day.

Despite appearances, this is not a beer for drinking on a warm day. This is a beer for washing your car with. The aroma is redolent of urea and warm skunk. The palate is bitter with no redeeming qualities of flavor. The bottle may look cool, but I recommend passing on this one and just buying a Colt 45 or an OE if you’re looking for volume.

Tejas (977) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Well it looks crystal clear with a big head and I imagine it’d be plenty refreshing on a steaming hot day. Overall, I’m glad this was a freebie and I didn’t spend $ on it. One & done. I won’t be drinking this one again.

PorterPounder (7321) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2004
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.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2004
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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 12, 2004
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.
