Fles @ Bioscoop Veu Alkmaar. Nooit geweten dat Bavaria ook zijn eigen Caribische biertje had maar bij deze. Op uiterlijk scoort ie ook meteen zijn punten. Helder doorzichtig geel biertje met weinig koolzuur en geurend naar lime. Smaakt ook waterig beetje zurig door die lime en fantastisch dorstlessend. Precies wat je in de bermudadriehoek tegen uitdroging nodig hebt. Maar ook nergens in uit muntend. Het is beetje vlak en niet hoppig of moutig te noemen maar ook dit zijn kenmerken die bij dit type biertje past. Maar als je alle bij elkaar telt is het niet meer dan een redelijke kloon van corona of sol alhoewel de naam claro! niet echt aansprekend is voor op een beachclub. Maar goed voor iedereen die hem nog niet gezien heeft Bladerunner 2049 is een fantastische film waarbij zelf een clarootje uit het koelvak bij past. flying_pig (1694) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2016
330ml bottle from Mercado Progreso Cubano (Cienfuegos, Cuba):dimeon (525) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 20, 2016
Definitely not a beer that could be considered a good one but it was far from the worst that I tried while in Cuba & I only feel slightly cheated by the fact that it was a Dutch beer. There isn’t really much that can be said about this one other than it was a fairly basic, cheap offering that came through with a lot of adjuncts & not too much else; a disappointment for sure & not one I’d have again.
A: Light yellow with a very small head
N: Some grain with a hint of leafy bitterness.
T: Hint of sweetness and some faint hop spiciness
O: Average light beer. AtronSeige (1827) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 2, 2016
Aroma: Medium-light grainy, Medium-light lemon.
Appearance: Brilliant, light yellow body. Medium, white head, large bubbles, low retention.
Flavour: Light grainy, light bitterness. Light lemon. Dry finish with lingering very light lemon.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: Crisp, refreshing. Easy drinking. The citrus hops gives the beer a great "needs more" attribute.
330 ml bottle, poured.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 The beer is just Ilke corona ie sol. It is quite orange. There is almost no foam. It doesn’t really look that exiting, but it definitely looks tasteful. The smell is nice. I smell some citrus, very refreshing and sweet. The taste also has a fruity citrus sweetness. There is also a hoppy flavor. In the distance there is a malty beer flavor, really nice. A real good substitute for the way to expensive sol and corona. Nice.

Bottle. Looks like piss. Smell of grain and maltose. Taste is watery, with that typical sweetish lager maltose stuff. Bad beer. DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Clear golden straight out the bottle. Light body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Citrus, grass and yeast. Refreshing beer in the sun, but nothing special. Gary (2100) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014

Bottled (backlog). My first thought when I saw this one was " Corona clone, oh no!". Pale yellow colour, small white head. And the rest pretty much turned out to be somewhat of a Corona nightmare. Very similar. Bland, uninspiring rice and cornwater. ALLOVATE (3092) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2010
Hahaha, you’ve got to give credit to these guys for having the balls to put ’brewed with rice’ smack-bang on the front of the bottle as some type of embossed mark of pride, teehee! At least I’m afore warned and know what to expect, unlike other dodgy merchants who hide rice and other adjuncts used to brew their beers and simply claim ’all natural ingredients!’
From out the corona-esque bottle it pours a pale gold, bright as day and storming with adherant soda-pop carbonation. Head rises then recedes with spectacular speed, a thin island of suds resides. Toasted malt and honey, brine and cardboard nose. Sweetish, toasted malt and white bread, mildly starchy palate. Clean, crisp swallow, drops off short, a little residual soapiness grows. The carbonation quite fierce but not gassy, the body light. Very dusty, feint hop back-end, mildly peppery at the apex. Dangerously easy to drink as I’ve finished the bottle in the time it took to taste it. Just quietly I did find this refreshing. Up against Cantina, Sol, Amstel Clear, Corona, etc., I’d have to judge this the better of these style of lagers. Just can’t afford the hangover of having more than one. Average!!
