( 32oz bottle thanks to Fratto) Pours very clear yellow. Nose of funky apple. Taste of water with almost no flavor at all. Finishes watery too. Is this beer?

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a large 32 oz. bottle. The body was pale gold with a very thin white head. The aroma was grainy and corny with a little bit of bell pepper. The taste was light plastic with some strange white potato. Very little flavor.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big industrial janitorial strength cleaner looking bottle - at least itís 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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated light yellow-orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty dough and grassy. The crisp semi-thick smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

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

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a very pale yellow color with an effervesent body and small white head. Sweet fruity malt and corn make up the aroma. Flavor sadly matches the aroma with malt and corn. Thin watery body.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Doesnít smell very good. Taste is just thin water lager. Nothing more than a lawnmover beer, but it helps quench the spicy salsa Iím eating.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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!

The aroma is dusty and corn like with almost no hops. The appearance is pale god with a nice but average head. The flavor is like the aroma and blah. The palate is thin. Itís not gross itís just not that good.
