1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. This is a thin and watery brew without much to set it apart. Not worth a look.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightly minty nose, postage stamps. Urine yellow, medium head, some lacing. Weak cardboard flavor, only very subtle mint notes. Unoffensive, does have some personality.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Had a couple of bottles in el Salvador. Pours a clear light yellow with thin frothy white head. Aroma is of barley and corn. Taste is of extremely weak hops and corn. Just another generic lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet, metallic aroma with a little skunk. More of the same in the flavor--sweet, mild, and a little vegetal.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from a 330 mL bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a very light, almost champagne color with a very clear body and a smaller foamy white head with short retention, and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma smelled of barley, grain, corn, adjunct, and some sour yeast and bread. It had a strange grainy bitter and sour taste with a touch of sour corn and yeast. A thin, light beer with a watery, light mouthfeel and low to average carbonation with a dry, chalky after taste. My first beer from El Salvador, otherwise quite forgettable.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours clear gold with a large white head. Lots of visual carbonation. Aroma of Cider and corn malt. Slight malt bitterness. Sticky lingering finish. Not very good at all. This beer would probably taste better right from the bottle on a Central American beach in the middle of summer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in El Salvador. My go to Pale Lager on vacation. Cloudy yellow, with a HUGE white head. Grainy, grassy aroma. Crisp palate. Crackery malts, with some grassy hops. Simple, but seems pretty tasty compared to the other three.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from North Gate: Poured a pale piss water looking gold liquid and topped with a fat foam cap of head--surprisingly.
Aroma is funky and smells of adjuncts with rice being the primary smell but some light scents of corn, grained malt and spiced hops come through as well.
The drink taste better directly from the bottle than from a glass cup. It could have easily fooled me that I was drinking European imported beer instead of El Salvador.
I will give this beer credit that it is affordable compared to the rest of the macro domestic and imported. Don’t even get me started on a price comparison with micros LOL.
Rather refreshing pisto if drinking cold out of the bottle plucked out of a bucket of ice. Added points.
