They market this as "premium" beer in other Latin American countries. My least favorite Honduran beer - very run of the mill with no qualities that stand out. Not good but not bad.

Color is a typical straw yellow with a decent and firm, though typical, white head. Crisp, malty aroma has a fruity undertone, typical for this style. Flavor is malty - and rather insipid. Smooth texture has little body or fizz. OK, I had to try it just for something from Honduras.

Damn straight BlackIPA sent me this gem!

Is it something in the air in my bedroom that is making these Pale Lagers pour beautifully over the last few days? This one’s got a huge rocky white head that is well retained and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The color is very pale golden.

Boy the aroma here is interesting, it dances around from doughy, to vegetal to sweet and breakfast cerealy, the doughy part is nice.

See now they’ve done something here to incorporate the horrible sweet breakfast cereal flavor into the overall flavor of the beer as opposed to making it stick out like a sore thumb. Other offenders include a strong presence of alcohol, some tomato, a little bit of dough, and some herbal hops adding a really pleasant bitterness to the beer.

The palate is all over the place, sharp at first, harsh overall, a little bit slick in the finish. weird.

Thanks Shawn!

Pale yellow pour with watery with head. Aroma of sweet corn. Flavor mirrors aroma with a very light bitter. Just not much. I’ll have to say I think it was fresh no skunk just not much flavor.

TPSA. Well, it’s pretty at least -- a nice gold color with a white, creamy head. Had almost no nose -- just a faint beery note, like someone had spilled onto upholstery or something. Mouthfeel is crisp, but pretty boring; there is a bit of hops, but nothing else to make it stand out. This beer commits the cardinal sin; it’s dull.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale yellow with an average white head. Faint aroma of corn. A bit skunky. Thin and watery. On the beach this would probably be drinkable.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear pale yellow with big fluffy sparkling white head. Highly carbonated, a little lacing, and thin watery body. Taste is light corn malt, bread, a hint of skunk, and a little hops in the finish. The more I drink the less I like it.

It’s cliche, almost, to say a cheap beer smells/tastes like corn but in this instance, the cliched shoe fits the foot like a glove. Corn, malted grass, and weak bread are present in the nose and in the flavor. Weak yellow appearance, weak mouthfeel. Would probably be better WITH a lime.

A friend brought me a bottle of this from Roatan, Honduras. Thanks Monique! Barena poured with a thick, white head that left lots of sticky lacing. It was clear and pale golden-yellow in color. Aroma is dominated by bread. I didn’t smell much else. The taste is bready, with slight hops in the finish. The adjunct did not come through, so they did a nice job of covering it up. Mouthfeel is medium. I entirely anticipated skunked beer from this and was pleasantly surprised.
