oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, - FEB 25, 2012
Bottled (thanks to my mom & dad for bringing me this from their GTM trip). Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is a bit eggy, grainy, mildly maizelike as well. Flavour is hay, grass, some mild maize as well. Not too much bitterness to be found. Quite vegetably finish.

Una lager normal y corriente, pero que deja un regusto más amargo de lo normal. Más allá de eso, nada que destacar.

Piepenhenrich (1191) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
While travelling in Guatemala and this being one of the few options, having a reasonable Lager, nice and cool, is a great thing to have. On a global perspective, this is no more than a mediocre Lager.

damzz (512) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2017
Pours a light yellow with a thick white head that quickly dissolves with no lacing. Nose is light cereal. Taste is slight sweet thin malt. with hop bitterness. Body is thin. Land Shark, Corona, Pacifico, even Tecate are better beers. 12 oz can

HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
August 8, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. 350ml brown bottle and I think "not in a friggin green bottle" is probably going to be the best thing about this one ... Bright oily incredibly pale gold with a small fizzy diminishing unnaturally bright head. "I’ve smelled this before!" - sugar, weeds and urine - some PVC; generous 3. The taste also sucks, but in a somewhat different fashion; it’s like warm garden hose water filled up a plastic kiddie pool full of pulled insecticide-sprayed weeds which was left in the sun - then a bottle of cheap grain alcohol was dumped in it and the resulting mess was bottled; voila! Blech. Watery, harsh, still, ugly aftertaste. Horrible.

Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Quart-sized bottle (of Famosa) from Americana Grocery (Vienna, VA). Faint cidery aromas, grainy. Clear, very pale gold, with a mostly lasting white head. A little sweet, light apple, grainy. Light bodied, very watery.

OnTheTrail (560) - Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Pours pale very clear light straw. Big white head. Aroma is light slightly nutty barley malt. Slightly sweet taste, slightly apple malt, nothing off, barest hint of hops. Mouthfeel a bit too heavy for the style. Not the worst pale lager.

gripweed57 (2796) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as Famosa Lager. Pale yellow gold color. Large white head. Mild grainy malt aroma. Faint grainy malt flavor hints at lemon peel.light dry finish.

hauxe (896) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 19, 2017
Shared with Wombat23, who has a six pack of the stuff to unload. Pours straw colored, the white head immediately disappears. Grassy aroma, light honey notes. Taste is sweet, dry, faint metallic notes. Watery end. Not much going on.

wombat23 (1665) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2017
Shared 12 oz. can. As Famosa. Pours clear pale yellow with a white head. Initially extremely fizzy. Aroma is corn. Taste corn, chemicals, metallic notes.

darbeer75 (955) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2017
Aroma: lightly corny; Appearance: light yellow, clear pour with no head; Taste: follows nose; not terrible but completely forgettable; Palate: light bodied with light finish; Overall: at least it’s a Guatemala tick.
