Club Colombia is brewed using the finest ingredients, including the Crystal variety of malt, to obtain a more profound flavour, and of the Saaz Czech hop to obtain a more defined aroma. It is also matured longer to attain a milder, refined touch. This allows obtaining a product with a marvellous aroma, a creamy, rich froth, a more profound golden colour and a milder, delicate flavour, which have turned Club Colombia into the most exclusive
brewery product in Colombia that was just given in Brussels one of the most prestigious awards to brewery quality
worldwide. It is the Grand Gold Medal with Palm Leaves. This is the top distinction granted by the Monde Selection, the most important food and beverage quality certification institution worldwide. matt92 (3) - fdgf, Delaware, COLOMBIA - AUG 22, 2006 does not count

Appearance: Beer pours leaving a hodge-podge of different bubble sizes in a pure white, foam lace of a head. Colour is a clear, bright, pale yellow.
Smell: Clean and crisp nose, with light fruity, grain, floral and metallic aromas. Delicately aromatic.
Taste: A nice slightly hoppy pale pilsner-lager with a pleasant sweetness that is balanced, and complemented, by a mildly lime-like hop bitterness and floral flavour. Light, complex fruity notes, and a touch of watery grape-like character. Crisp, rather dry, but an overall smooth mouthfeel and a decent body. Tame metallic and fresh bread notes pull through as the beer warms. Finishes just a tad dry with some trace grain and metallic flavours.
Notes: I can remember only one other cleaner, fresher tasting simple session lager I’ve enjoyed this much, in a foreign country filled with delightful people. Seybrew. But save that one, this is an awesome session special! Drinking_77 (143) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Bottle of Club Colombia pale lager, 4.7% ABV
I have to say was very pleasantly surprised with this lager. Wasn’t expecting a whole lot from a Colombian beer, but it was a lovely tasting beer with a nice looking body that was enjoyable to drink.
The beer pours a lovely clear gold body, with a decent frothy head that lasts. There was little lacing.
The smell is not strong or unpleasant, a little sweet and corn like.
The taste was of sweet toasted malts with no real aftertaste. A light tasting beer that did the business on a hot day. Recommended.
