Thnx to Ben ! Pours Cristal (!) clear blonde, small white head. Smell is weak. touch of malts, but not that natural. Taste is bitter, rather intense. Some yeast. no real maltyness. rather chemical, especially the bitterness doesnt taste right ! it is drinkable though ( very weak, I must say )

stevoj (4440) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Buckeyeboy. True to the South American style, tons of corn sweetness, sticky feel, pale golden body with small foamy head. Not horrible, just kind of bland, and a bit on the sweet side.
