ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, light gold body with six to seven lazy, disinterested bubbles floating around. Smell: Pale malts with some light cereal notes. Taste: Palt maltiness, a touch cereal, but not overly sweet. Not much in the way of hop character. More of the same till the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A good beer? Heavens, no! It’s weak and watery. But at least there are no foul or offensive flavors running loose in here. I guess that’s a fair trade.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Dankole. Pours a clear gold with a huge 4 finger white head and decent lacing. Nose is light grassy hops and sweet corn. Taste is malt, grain and honey with a minimal bitter hops finish. Light-to-medium mouth feel. Drinkable.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a very light pale color with a small almost non existent head. Smells of corn and not much malt. First sip is tad bitter with a slight hop presence but not much flavor. Very light bodied with average carbonation. Very typical for beers from South America. Just enough flavor to be called a “beer”.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
(Sample at September 12, 2008 Beer Club Meeting) This looks as if it initially poured a deeper color, almost orange, then lightened as its small head bubbled away into the glass. Its smell reminds me of a German brewery. Its taste... I hear someone say, "rusty coins". Great... now I taste rusty coins. It does have a metallic bite to it, but not overly so. This one is malty for a Latin American lager. Sweet, too. I do like this. The tongue swells a little at the aftertaste. This is a welcomed change from the commom skunky Latin American pale lager.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark straw with 2-finger splotchy white head. Nose is grainy pale malt and hopcitrus. Tastes grainy pale malty, with some fruit and hopcitric notes. Gets a bit tart late and loses some flavor, but all in all not too bad.

BelgianBeerGal (3932) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottled. Yep it’s a pale lager from Peru. It’s not bad but it’s most redeeming quality is that it provides me the opportunity to mark Peru off my list of countries.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2008
From the bottle. Pours a light gold with a little bit of white head. These seems like a macro that could be from anywhere. I really wasn’t expecting much, just wanted to give it a try. Blah.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle. A light golden colour, fizz but zero head. Crispy taste, quite sweet. A bit on the sticky sugary side.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle, Vinea, Liverpool. Purchased for sheer novelty value and expectations were low. Grainy, a touch of malt. Watery, with a nasty chemical tinged finish. A very average and boring lager which could really be from anywhere. Not as bad as Fosters or Bud though.
