cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a clear light golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Lively carbonation with tiny bubbles. Aroma is sweet grain and grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened grain with some nice hop bitterness. Light to medium body. A nice Pale lager from Central America. Worth a try.

Hay aroma. Light golden color, medium head, no lacing. Pretty flavorless, although there is a tinge of mulberry. Sorry folks, thats all the flavor there appears to be.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Almost zero aroma except for a faint sourness. Least color Ive ever seen in a beer. Completely clear with a hint of yellow. Sour straw taste, thin and watery.

This beer was ok, my bottle was labled Famosa Lager Beer. IT had a smooth after taste, and set well, but other than that, just an average beer

A big bomber of this. Yellow, clear and slightly skunky. Corny taste with little hops or malts. Slightly grassy finish.

cheap (5593) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Lets take a trip to Guatemala. This 12 oz twist off cap bottle has been layen around a while ~ date code is 1896. Smell is a little like cabbage related vegetables. Aroma is more clean once it is poured, more lemony yeast like. It looks quite bright yellow in my glass with some internal bubbling. No head, just a belt around the inside of the glass. Very good carbonation on the palate from front to back of throat. Taste is a little ungentle manlike, lacking manners. Sharp medium bitterness with the initial taste then that fades rapidly, it does not linger. Overall, this is not too bad but has some forward tastes. It is repeatable and almost session like. There are other good lagers out there with more manners and lower price. Carlsburg is much better than this for about the same price. Rolling Rock, Schmidts and Miller Highlife excel when tastes are compared.

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2007
Bottle... AWOL 07... Clear light yellow lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Honey and grain aroma. Mostly sweet flavor with a restrained hop snap. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Lightly sweet finish with only a hint of peppery hop bitterness. I found the beer to be a pretty good example of a pretty mundane style. Much better than anticipated.
