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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I only bought this beer for the El Salvador beer tic. Green bottle so you know it’s skunked. Tastes like corn. Sane color as piss. Merely an alcohol delivery unit.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden pour with large white head which stayed awhile. Flavor was of straw and some malts and a lot of water. Hey, its a beer at a Mexican restaurant, pairs well with the food, but as a standalone beer? No thanks.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ home. Light straw yellow, clear appearance with a white head. Quite sweet, lightly grainy pale lager nose. Flavor is a bit like a cream ale. Quite sweet, pale malty lager flavor. Not too impressive.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
bottle at mexican restaurant. Very pale yellow with fizzy white head, very, very watery, as much as american light beers. No stale flavors, just water. Not the best south american selection.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours very light straw yellow with soapy head that dissipates to nothing. Slight aroma of hops but nothing more than another light industrial lager.
