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.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2002
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.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2002
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 Iíd probably pick it up before drinking Moosehead or Corona.

Maybe itís just me, but this Carona/Pacifico wannabe just doesnít cut it. Only $2.99 at trader joes... ideal for parties.

tried this at an Ethiopian resturant in Tampa, went well with the cuisine

Very pale and clear with fat sticky foam. Lightly hopped with an easy body. Relative to other Latin American beers, itís well-balanced and bright. Very nice.
