Fra prøveflaske, rester etter RBHD-samling på Askje 18.11.14: klar gylden uten skum. Smaker kunstig søt. Vandig og heldigvis nesten uten ettersmak. Slett ikke "an exquisite beer of intense flavour" slik de selv påstår. Holmen2 (4036) - NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Askje 18.11.14. Clear pale golden. Disappearing white head. Some lacing. Soft, but slightly crude aroma of bread and candy sugar. Waterish taste. Artificial sweetness in dry aftertaste. abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014

Shared bottle at local tasting. Clear pale golden colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma, notes of newmown grass and candy. Sweetish flavour first, drier cardboard notes in the finish, hardly any bittering hops. rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014

Clear yellow golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet malt in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet malt, cardboard and mild grassy hops. Bad beer. But it’s a country tick. Thanks!
Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Cereal grain and a bit of lager yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes mostly clean. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2014
Big bottle 32oz? In San Salvador. Nice straw/gold color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted sweet malt, hay, & grain; Flavor of slight sweet malt, cereal/corn, and grain; Fairly bland. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2014
I picked this up at a local grocery store. It has an extremely pale yellow body filled with a zillion (I counted) tiny bubbles that race upwards to the frothy, sustained head. It has almost no aroma. I had to stick my snout deep into the glass to pick up faint traces of white sugar and grass. There’s not much flavor, either, just a light sugary taste, a hint of malt, and a blade of grass. Very watery. It would be good for brushing one’s teeth. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from a pretty chill Latin American food market located next to Mekong. The pour’s extremely light gold, champagne-like in appearance. The nose certainly can’t be confused for champagne. Loads of paper and creamed corn. Unmistakable developing-world pale lager notes. The taste is pretty skunky. Not fun. Sugared bread. Bizzarely thick. Cardboard on the finish. Pretty nasty. Light body, weirdly oily. Super fizzy. Overall, extremely poor. Valfar (79) - San Miguel, EL SALVADOR - OCT 24, 2013
4.8% This is one of the less favorite beers among salvadorans, it’s because they don’t use to like bitter beers (most of them). Nevertheless, this is my national favorite beer. The aroma is very alcoholic and bread smell is strong too. It has also a pale-golden color, very carbonated. Its flavor is sweet at the beginning and bitter at the end, that’s why I like it.
