Bottle at Brickseller, Washington DC (offered by some random drunk customer, who claimed it was the best, of course)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Big bottle. Pale gold color with a three finger head. Head holds up well. Laces abundantly. Rather grainy aroma backed by some noble hop. Rather thin bodied with mild, frothy carbonation. Flavor is beer. There’s pale malt. There’s hop. It’s a bit sweet. It’s wholly inoffensive. It’s not crisp; it is clean. I think it’s brewed for the hotter climes. If I was eating food in El Salvador, I would use this like water. I actually think I am enjoying this one. It is so innocuous. There’s not a bad flavor in it. Would I take it to a desert island? No.

Bottle from Party Source, KY. Poured light clear amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light grainy aroma. Light body with a watery texture with soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. Worth having once.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
One of the largest single-user bottles of beer I have ever seen in my life, at El Paraiso in DC. Very pale yellow, medium white head. Aroma of white pepper. Taste is very light, easy to drink, and plain. Unexciting, but I could see how this would be very drinkable on a hot and humid day.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Ah, El Salvador... where’ve you been all my life. My first pale lager as a US resident and it doesn’t 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 don’t drink Central American beer.
