32 oz bottle. (Buford Highway Farmerís Market) Atlanta, GA.

Sweet malt in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet malt, cardboard and mild grassy hops. Bad beer. But itís a country tick. Thanks!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I picked this up at a local grocery store. It has an extremely pale yellow body filled with a zillion (I counted) tiny bubbles that race upwards to the frothy, sustained head. It has almost no aroma. I had to stick my snout deep into the glass to pick up faint traces of white sugar and grass. Thereís not much flavor, either, just a light sugary taste, a hint of malt, and a blade of grass. Very watery. It would be good for brushing oneís teeth.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from a pretty chill Latin American food market located next to Mekong. The pourís extremely light gold, champagne-like in appearance. The nose certainly canít be confused for champagne. Loads of paper and creamed corn. Unmistakable developing-world pale lager notes. The taste is pretty skunky. Not fun. Sugared bread. Bizzarely thick. Cardboard on the finish. Pretty nasty. Light body, weirdly oily. Super fizzy. Overall, extremely poor.

4.8% This is one of the less favorite beers among salvadorans, itís because they donít use to like bitter beers (most of them). Nevertheless, this is my national favorite beer. The aroma is very alcoholic and bread smell is strong too. It has also a pale-golden color, very carbonated. Its flavor is sweet at the beginning and bitter at the end, thatís why I like it.

Plain and simple: I wonít ever drink this. This beerís taste is metallic, and also has alcohol taste. Also, itís got a bitter finish to it. So far in El Salvador, this is what Iíve liked the least.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
32 oz. bottle from local Jewel. Think Iíll rate this, then use what I donít want to boil some brats. An almost clear pour, but somewhat yellow in the glass with a big foamy head. Quite a skunky head at first, but that dissipates. Whatís left is a nose of mostly corn syrup. Taste is somewhat fusel and "processed," although in a quantity like this I guess it doesnít matter much. Fizzy and with some bitterness, which at least makes up a little for the very thin flavor.
