Skunky aroma, pale golden appearance, light bitterness/body. After reading reviews I was expecting something horrible. Itís not great, but Iíve had worse. The best way I can describe the overall experience is a Latin American version of Heineken with a cool rooster on the label.

Emeister84 (2481) - 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 (494) - 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.

tomer (3481) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 16, 2017
Bottle, medium diminishing bubbly head, clear palish yellow color, light malty aroma with some paper, light malty fruity aroma, light sweetness and bitterness, lively carbonation. Not offensive but not much different from water.

As Famosa. Many Thanks for this beer to CH-303. Malenka piana dziwnej struktory, nietrwala ale o dziwo zostawia slad na szkle. Jasne slomkowe jak pilsner. W smaku juz inne, sporo syropu klonowego zmieszanego z rozgotowanym bialym ryzem, tak mi sie kojazylo. Nie smaczne syropowate, slodkie ale jakby woda poslodzona slodzikiem. Lepiej juz w upalny dzien napic sie wody mineralnej i smaczniej i zdrowiej. Thanks Asbjorn for a new Country.

Bottle thanks to Nanna Greenspoint! Pours a clear gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is corn malt and grass. Medium body, corn, wheat, light finish, not bad.
