As far as south/central american adjunct lagers this is pretty low rung stuff. Sweet, nutty, barfy, corny, shitty. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Never had a chance to pour this into a glass but can’t imagine it would make much difference. Wouldn’t bother tracking it down at home but on a beach it’s hard to beat. reebtogi (6267) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves virtually no lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a light hoppy bitterness and a little skunky. Light in body and moderate in carbonation. Slightly better than a typical macro lager. ben4321 (6503) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2011

Aroma: The nose is fairly light with notes of grain and grass mostly
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-yellow color with a fluffy white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, lightly sweet and with a subtle bitterness as well
Palate: This one drinks really easily, light and smooth, with a slight crispness to it
My 2nd rating from Honduras! Also, my 100th Pale Lager rating, which is the probably the least exciting accomplishment in all of beer rating. I knew what I was getting myself into here, and I pretty much got what I was expecting. I needed to fill out a mixed 6-pack, and I knew I wasn’t getting anything more then a tick, but it isn’t as bad as the overall reviews would indicate.
This being my first Honduran brew, it compares well with other brews in its class; light, crisp, refreshing. It has a sharp bitter bite up front with a smooth caramel-like mellowed finished. It’s just a good typical pale lager. Darn good companion with my chili-cheese-frito-pie dinner! This brew truly met up with its purpose - quench thirst quickly and cheaply!

bottle. Poured clear pale yellow with a rocky white head. Light sweet grainy aroma. Medium bready mouthfeel, average carbonation. Light grainy flavour with some malty undertones. A little better than I was expecting. BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle @ BeerBiker/Scheffel’s 100 countries celebration week (long time ago). In the heat, it could be a nice easy drinkable beer. Could add more hops and it would be an okay beachsnifter! johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Stop number two while on the Carnival Valor was Roatan in Honduras where I was able to sample Salva Vida. I asked the waiter if they had any darker beers and he recommended this one. I’m not sure he understood me :) I had this twice while there once in a can and once in a bottle. I found the canned brew metallic, and slightly more carbonated.
Poured into a clear plastic cup at Fat Tuesday’s produced a liquid of pale gold color and a minimal head that went poof in the heat. Smells of corn and light husky grain minimal hops with a slight earthy aroma as well. Taste is what I expected. Light sweet malt, corn, slight dms. Smooth creamy/watery mouthfeel, medium body, crisp carbonation. Not a bad quick thirst quencher on a hot day. weihenweizen (3825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours straw with one finger head. Light body, very little lacing, and thin texture. Taste is light grainy malt, corn, hint of metallic.
