Golden yellow in color with a white foamy head. Seems like a cross between a crisp and light Corona and a skunky/vegetal Heineken. Well, at least its cheap in price.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Attractive light gold color gives hint of its countenance: light, unpretentious refreshment. Aroma is slightly sweet--but fortunately on the light side. Head a little sudsy and dissipated rapidly. Flavor was light, but relatively well-balanced between hops and slight malt presence. Carbonation moderate, less a factor than in many tropical lagers. Finish is fairly clean but with slight sweetness. This is a decent patio beer, made more attractive with its more-than-reasonable price. For the dollar, beats the hell out of Corona and Pacifico.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer has the sparkling lager look, with a well carbonated-solid gold color. Sweet-skunk pilsner smell feintly wafts up the glass. Despite the carbonated appearance, this beer felt relatively flat and flavorless--a bit of pilsner sweetness carries what little flavor exists--just not much taste character in this beer. A smooth lager, but highly forgettable.

Lightly hopped, but pretty much flavorless brew. Not a bad budget choice and I’d probably pick it up before drinking Moosehead or Corona.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Maybe it’s just me, but this Carona/Pacifico wannabe just doesn’t cut it. Only $2.99 at trader joes... ideal for parties.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale and clear with fat sticky foam. Lightly hopped with an easy body. Relative to other Latin American beers, it’s well-balanced and bright. Very nice.
