Ramenen (464) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 17, 2005
Skunky. You can definitely smell (at the beginning) and taste (at the end) the skunk on this wannabe lager. Unprocessed beer that makes you hurt the day after.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Not bad. Bottle poured yellow with no head or lacing. Aroma of watered down corn and malt. Flavor is watery with a bit of malt. Would be good freezing cold in the Arizona heat.

So thats what toilet water tastes like. On a desrted island with no qater except the ocean or this, i’d die of exposure.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
Well carbonated with a long lasting silky white head and even lacing. Aroma is not pleasant (green bottle), sugar and vegetables. Drinkable but still sweet watered down vegetable flavour.

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2004
This was attempted just to get El Salvador. My wife took one look at the label, looked back at me and said "That just looks bad." She was right. Light yellow, unnatural white head over the fizzy body. Sickening sweet aroma of cake doughnuts that got sprayed by a skunk. Flavor is sweet, adjunct laden retch. Beyond further skunk flavors, there is also a distinct flavor of peanut butter. This is all just so wrong.

jimhilt (2390) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Pours with a two-finger white head fades quickly leaving a good lace. Light amber color. Nose has very faint hops. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Starts and finishes slightly hoppy. Good lawn mower beer - not beefy enough when there is snow on the ground. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 4/20
MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Very pale. Nose a bit sour and skunked, bit of a Corn Pops cereal scent to it as well. Not pleasant in the flavor, unpleasantly full of a chemical and adjunct flavors, kind of like what I suspect drinking weed killer might taste like. Aftertaste is quite long and both overly sweet and unappealingly skunky. Not good even in comparison to other bad hot-weather beers.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Bottle, pours yellow and fizzy. Typical lager smell and taste - except for the skunk. Did I get a bad bottle or is it always this bad... Sweet malts, with vinegar finish. This is a definite drain pour and I already have an El Salvador rating. :(

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - NOV 6, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Bottle, Can: Quite bitter with average body herbal and grassy, slightly sweet in the background.

igneous1 (1492) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2003
mine 6-pack wasnt skunked, however, there was one prevailing characteristic in both the aroma and flavor: wet paperbag/cardboard. too bad, decent enough looking lager.
