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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. I’ve had worse pale lagers. This one is a clear light yellow pour with a small white head. Nose and taste are grain and grass, with a touch of hops in there too. Not off-putting. Also not really skunky, which was a pleasant surprise given that it was imported half way up the hemisphere in a light green glass bottle.

Sometimes I try to deny that I’m a ticker. Sometimes the evidence is irrefutable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned beer that pours a pale straw color with a 2 finger white head that quickly disappears leaving no lace. Aroma is light malts and grassy hops. Taste is light malty sweet with a sharp hoppy bitterness. No really off flavors in this one, but nothing memorable either.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is a clear light yellow with the tiniest of fizzy heads. Head is quick to fade but ok lacing.
Smell grainy with corn and cooked cabbage. Not very appealing.
Flavor is corn and the same cooked cabbage that was in the smell. Also some grape flavor. The beer is pretty sweet throughout with a tannic bitterness towards the finish.
Glad I got to try a beer from El Salvador but not something I would pick up again.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hmmm a beer from El Salvador, I can’t wait to try this one. It must be legendary. Lets see, first off it pours a clear pale golden color, but not as light as other pale lagers that I’ve had. Aroma is of malts, corn, some fruit, and hops. Flavor is a bit skunked. There’s malts, corn, hops, grain, and wheat present. Leaves a bitter hoppy malt finish. Terrible.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle. Faint hop aroma. Pale gold, white head. I taste lager hope, corn, sugar. OK feel. Not something I’d look for, but not as horrible as I thought it would be.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Appearance: Decidedly clear body, faint pale golden hue with a decent-looking, airy, white head. Minute lacing on the way down.
Smell: A tad sweetish in the nose, some lackluster graininess, a mice-tear worth of uningratiating acetone, and a small serving of chilled creamed corn.
Taste: Mildly grainy with a sweet pop of light corn syrup. Ultra faint herbaceous hops, near nil bitterness, but, then, a trace of chemically astringency that holds firm until the sweetish, soft finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Sometimes you luck out with a simple and innocuously inoffensive pale lager, but, sometimes it’s kinda icky, as is the case with Suprema.

Bottle from CM Beer and Wine. Light pour with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet and almost fruity. Taste is a little spice and grainy.
