1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Skunky aroma, pale golden appearance, light bitterness/body. After reading reviews I was expecting something horrible. It’s not great, but I’ve 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.
Crystal clear white gold, little head and lace. Smells like corn flakes, tastes like the box in which the corn flakes came. Light body, fizzy on the palate, but a pleasantly crisp clean finish saves the day. Porcellini (65) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2017
Una lager normal y corriente, pero que deja un regusto más amargo de lo normal. Más allá de eso, nada que destacar. Piepenhenrich (1229) - 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 (516) - 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 (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), 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.

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 (580) - 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 (2854) - 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 (935) - 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.
