One of the best beers in the world for sure. I recommend this beer to any one. RCWCPACFP (102) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2004
An excellent example of a central american premium but far too easy to get a bad batch. Skunky finish like Jever but not quite as bitter. Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2002
I know a beer like Panama is never going to get respect from the geek crowd. But let me ask you all a question I pondered while sitting at the edge of the Carribean, downing beer and eating conch: if you had to brew a beer that would be palatable on a 90 degree day with 90% humidity, what would YOU brew? Certainly not the imperial stouts or Belgian tripels that score the high marks here. In fact, even a pale ale would overwhelm. In Panama, there are two kinds of beer, the 3% and the 5%. Panama is a 5 percenter and the best. After a day sea kayaking, while lounging at a restaurant, you feel like you’re in heaven and drinking God’s own beer. Salud!

Not bad. The Republic of Panama is not known for its beers, but if you’re ever in that country, this brew (along with Atlas) are the best of a bad lot (the rest should be avoided). About comparable to Coors, or maybe to Corona. Perfect for the topics. By stateside standards, only average. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Had this one canned in Colon, Panama. For a canned beer, surprisingly tasty and refreshing. Not a whole lot of nose but somewhat more complex in taste than one’s average macrobrew. Not bad.

Some friends and I acquired a whole truckload of this stuff back in the 80s. It was a delicious summer of free beer. I’d like to find it again to see if it’s as good as I remember it being when I was 17. Real rich taste with sort of an apricot-y finish mike5326 (1754) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color, medium white head. Medium corn syrup aroma. Medium body with a light sweet and bitter flavor and a sweet finish.

Una cerveza lager normal. Nada en especial o extraordinario que decir de ella... gripweed57 (2463) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear, pale yellow gold color with a brief white head. Pleasant aromatic hop nose. Tart fruity, grainy malt flavor. Light hoppy finish is grassy.mlight bodied, highly carbonated and mildly flavored. STLbeerdrinker (6) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2004 does not count
Like several others have said about this beer, itis fine for Panama and if you been ther you see the ads for it everywhere. I think it was created to satify the tastes of all the Americans that moved ther to work on the canal.
The taste is good and compares to any mainstream lager beer. But as with all things in ones past, you reminies for one now and then. But I think a 6 pack would be more than enough.
It is more like Corona like one of the reviewer said. I think it the company was to market it right, that is could take a share of that marlket, maybe have it with fish like they do in Panama
