Can. Pale yellow with a nice whitish head. Grainy, light earthy aroma. Malty, grainy, light hop flavor. Medium body. Slightly sweet. Lingering grainy sweetness. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JAN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 This is decent and struck me as more robust than the Costa Rican Imperial I had at the same time. It is gold with a with a decent white head that steadily shrinks to a thin head. The aroma is a perfumy pale lager aroma with hints of grain and hops. The taste is pretty thin and bland, a light grain body dominated by a light piney hop flavour and bitterness. But, it has more flavour, robust body, and persistent bitterness than Imperial or many other macros, and it has a nice smooth mouthfeel.

12oz bottle. DMS, corn and skunk aroma. Tastes pretty bad, with a little bitterness, but is just off and bland. Thin and hard palate. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2008
(12oz bottle, thanks(?) Peregrinari) White head atop crystal clear pear juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, corn, peach syrup, light cereal. Taste is moderately sweet, peach syrup, corn, light cereal, sourness. Light body, some graininess. Mostly inoffensive. Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2008
I really don’t know what to say about this one. Smells of sour rice and cider. Tastes sour as well. It really does remind me of Budweiser without the hops. Overall, I didn’t particularly enjoy this beer. I would never seek it nor would I recommend it.

Mmmm, swill! Off-clear colour (really, really, pale gold). Aroma is quite light and cidery. Some apple and pale malt. Flavour is slightly herbal and metallic with a light vegetal character. Very cereally. Like watery cider with a bit of pale malt. Beyond boring. littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Had very little expectations but the pour was not bad. Foamy white head that had some solid structure to it. Aroma was a bit skunky. Some hop notes in there somewhere behind the stench. Flavor was terrible. Poor finish, skunky taste. Aweful. Lively carbonation on the tongue. But really quite poor overall. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Bottle. I poured this beverage and it looked to be bubbly and lively but it wasn’t. Weak corn and syrup without flavor. It’s from a Central American country. What more can you expect? Labeled "Famosa." PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle: One of the least attractive looking beers out there. Pours completely lucid, with almost no color, or head. Aroma is of cheap brewing flakes, stale dog urine, unappealing. There was surprisingly balanced carbonation, but a very vacant flavor. Just a straw hint with near no bitterness. Lacks any character whatsoever.
