"Cochabamba’s finest," accordingly so being that its the only brewery in Cochabamba. However, it doesn’t separate itself from the other worldwide, macrobrewed lagers. Not even from Bolivia’s Pacena or Huari for that matter. Nevertheless, its the normal beer you’ll find in pubs, restaurants and the airport, yellow with a quickly ending white head. Aroma of stale hops and malt. Taste unexciting, mostly corn and malt. Dry ending, slightly skunked.
A light blonde lager with a thin white head. In aroma, light skunked malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, bad. In mouth, a light adjunct corn malt with light grassy German hops, typical south American beer, does the job. 620ml Bottle at a Cochabamba restaurant. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 14, 2011
Refreshing, very goldy and good for hot days. Not tiring and nice white foam. teddybeer (3735) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2009
Can 33cl: golden beer with a white head that soon dissapears. Weak aroma and taste, perhaps something like corn. A perfect beverage with gas to drink in a hot day, no more... jgb9348 (6194) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Labeled Taquina Export Beer:almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - MAY 7, 2007
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a smallish white head. Aroma of pale malt, light hops, caster sugar, corn and some light citrus. Medium-bodied; Sharp taste of oranges and lemons up front with peaches, malt, sugar and wheat behind. Aftertaste shows the freshness of a light lager, but the flavours of a nice ale. More taste (and good ones too) than one might expect from this beer - but very good too! Overall, very thrilled to be trying this beer, brought back by my friend Jon[R888710], before actually heading down to Bolivia. Pleasantly suprised by the first Bolivian, hopefully the trend continues! I sampled this 350 mL can purchased in Bolivia, brought back to the United States on 15 July 2006, drunk on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Update: After being in Bolivia, this beer somehow got a little worse - so be prepared to have it start out great, then finish as ’just another beer’. You’ll be able to find this everywhere around Cochabamba, but in Santa Cruz, La Paz and a few other places, you should still be able to get Taquina if desired. The label shows the highest peak around Cochabamba, Cerro Tunari - snowcapped in all it’s Andes glory!
in bottle, 330 ml.
Has a pale yellow color, is turbid. White and abundant foam, but product of the gas. The aroma is to sweet flowers, (rosa mosqueta). It has a good bitterness of hoppy initially, but the sweet becomes acid ultimately. This remembers the equatorial beers. Only for one very warm day!.

having an old can I brouight back from La Paz a while ago. Settling out some. Very pale yelllow, almost clear except for participates. Only a hint of aroma. very thin. Only flavor is sweet corn. Nothing foul. guess you can give it that. faroeviking (10838) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle. Straw yellowish colour. Short lasting head. weak aroma of malt. Nice clean malty flavout with some bitterness to it, which sticks in the aftertaste. Cervecería Taquiña has 70% of the Cochabamba beer market. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thanks Jeremy for bringing this back! Pours a clear yellow color with not much of a head. Malty, wheaty aroma. Dry aftertaste. Smooth. Decent balance between hops and malt. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2004
The fairly large, fluffy white head is the best feature of this beer. And even that was negated by the large amount of ’floaties’ that were apparant (a good sign in some Belgians, but not in a pilsener, IMHO). Skunked aroma, light-bodied with a cooked, corny flavor. At least I can say I rated a Bolivian beer.
