adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2011
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.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2011
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.

Dfalken (45) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 28, 2010
Pours very light straw yellow with soapy head that dissipates to nothing. Slight aroma of hops but nothing more than another light industrial lager.

legion242 (2192) - Richardson, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Typical Latin American lager with no qualities that make it stand out or made want to return for even another sip. Boring.

Overall, this beer was terrible, it was about as vile a beer as they come. Iíll avoid it like the plague form now on.

beernovice39 (3125) - Montana, USA - APR 27, 2010
Clear gold pour with medium white head. Scent is very light with floral hints? Taste is twangy with no hint of bitter. Good after mowing the lawn maybe?

NJBeerman013 (1050) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours light yellow, rapidly fading head. Not much in taste or aroma. Body is pretty thin. Definitely forgetable.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2010
A very clear pale yellow beer with a decent head that dissipates-looks like colored water. The aroma is skunky & corn. The taste was like bad vegetables. Some pale lagers donít taste like much & arenít bad but this one is just terrible. It actually left good lacing.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2010
12oz bottle from BevMo! 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.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 4, 2010
12oz bottle. A large white head sits atop a straw colored body, and dissipates rather quickly, leaving a patchy slick of foam for the duration of the bottle. The aroma is surprisingly skunk-free considering the green glass and the bottleís origins in a Beers of the World pack. SABMiller must be shipping tetra hop extract down to these guys, and Iím not complaining at all. Light bread, corn tortilla and some mineral water remain. There is an almost fresh, grassy note, but it doesnít smell like hops. The flavor is mildly sweet with some cooked corn juice though I didnít really get much DMS in the aroma; wait, there it is, the tomato soup. I know itís a fault, but it has never really bothered me like it does other people. Hops are next to nil, but something is keeping the finish from being too sweet. The body is quite thin and watery, but the carbonation is a nicely manageable level. Overall, a basic tropical pale lager that avoids being skunky and doesnít offend otherwise. Not really my bag of sticks, but far from the worst that Iíve had.
