Hey my 1st El Salvadorian beer! 12oz bottle at Mexican restaurant poured into mug. Typical pale straw color, white head. Aroma of cereal, some light fruity and floral notes. Taste is light, sweet and some grass notes. Light body, fizzy, clean. It was a simple beer to go with my dinner.

Used to be a very good beer back when La Constancia was locally owned. Now it has foaming agents and who knows what else... Still it is the best local beer in El Salvador.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a very pale straw color with a small white head. Strong skunk aroma with just as much sulfur. Lots of corn and cereal sweetness with a touch of yeast and apple juice. Corn, table sugar, and grain sweetness on the palate with a healthy helping of skunk and sulfur. A bit of cracker, straw, and grass, but very little bitterness. Light apple juice sweetness provides what little depth there is.

Suprema has a thin-to-medium, white head and a clear, bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, with considerable, stratified lacing left down the glass. The aroma is sweet, lemony, and one gets a bit of malt and stinging hops as well. The flavor is rich, lemony, malty, slightly hoppy, and it even has an odd, cream ale olive oil aspect to it. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Suprema finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. This made for a very nice 6 am breakfast beer. Overall, I loved it! RJT

Bottle. Pale gold color. Aroma is mild, slightly fresh grass. Taste, weak but not bad.

330 ml. Clear pale golden with a lasting quarter inch of meringue. Barely noticeable, inoffensive nose of spicy grass and apple. Flavor is the same with some sweet corn. Soft light body is smoothly carbonated and slightly sweet. Interesting that this green bottle had no trace of skunk, yet the brown 350 ml. bottle of "Pilsener of El Salvador" opened just prior (from the same brewery) was all scorched rubber and skunk!

osu97gp (652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pours a clear pale yellow color with a small quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of grain and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet and grassy. I imagine this would be quite tasty in the tropics.

Had it on tap, I think, it came to me in a frozen mug with an empty inch below the rim, so who knows.. this was a very bright yellow beer, around the color of a corona. It was great in the frozen glass, refreshing, crisp and perfect with pupusas on a sunny day. Very light in overall flavor but I think that is the great part about this style.
