Bottled 330cm3. -Yellow/golden coloured, small white head, mild corn in the nose. Malty and mild hoppy with evident maize presence. Short and quite tasteless bitterish finish. Weak as I’ve expected but new country is new country.

I dont know, everyone says this is miles ahead of pilsener, but its really not very good. Perhaps without the green bottle; the aroma was all skunk every time I tried it. True, the taste is fuller, more rich malt than the bland adjunct funk of pilsener, but its far from a good brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle drank at Guayaquil International Airport Jose Joaquin de Olmedo. This one pours the typical clear pale lager color. However it shows a surprisingly clean herbal smell giving way to maltier hints. Notes of mint, apples, pineapple, fresh green leaves and dough. Clean herbal taste, slightly watery but perfect for what it is. It reminds me of a fresh Stella Artois. This one is a fine commercial lager from Ecuador, miles away from the bland Cerveza Pilsener. It can hold its own against most european examples of the style.

The best ecuadorian beer, typical macro brewery lager, golden, lot of carbonation, not head retention all, but it is drinkable, way better than Pilsener.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was only available in some of the better restaurants in Ecuador, but I don’t see why. It was a little bitter, and kind of skunky. I had this on a cross country bus, so I might have been sitting around for awhile. All in all I liked the more popular brand, Pilsener, better.
That said, I had this after having our bus stopped by a bunch of strikers in the middle of the night, and it did help calm my nerves....

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The best Ecuadorian mainstream brand... Not that that says much. Compared to Pilsener, it’s got a slightly richer, fuller taste but also more carbonation, the kind that is to your mouth like a very loud, nasal girl’s voice is to your ears.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was by a hair the best of the beers we had in Ecuador. Of the three main brands, this one is the strongest. Typical Euro-style lager.

I had a couple bottles of this poured into a pint glass while in Quito, Ecuador. The beer had a pleasant grainy hops aroma with a bit of cereal and straw. It had a good grainy bitter taste with a slight sourness. The beer had average carbonation and a somewhat lively mouthfeel, although it was somewhat dry. The appearance was a mostly clear gold color with a modest bubbly white head that had some slight cling and retention.
