This beer poured a sickly pale yellow color. Tons of carbonation aid the foamy whitish head allowing it to go down slowly. Smell is hoppy, but nothing much else except a strange straw or grainy type aroma. Light hops but good malt backbone. Surprisingly, not that bad. Bitterness struggles to come out, but never fully makes it. Very light in the mouth. Not a horrible watery piss beer, but not great. A good beer for spicy food on a hot day, but I really don't think it deserves to be called a Pilsener.

12 ouncer, they call it a "Latin American Pilsner" Pours very light golden and clear, with some bubbles streaming to the surface. The head is snow white and pretty fine, moderate, blotchy lacing left behind. very light nose of
corn/adjuncts. This is a typical, very light and minimally hopped/malted adjunct filler macro brew. Moderate hoppy dryness noted in hte finish. Limited good stuff to note here, ice cold on a hot day, these would go down nice and easy.

Cervesa Ole pours a crystal-clear straw-gold body beneath a frothy head of bright white that readily drops to a short lid, and then dissipates into nothing more than a thin collar. Lacing is extremely limited. The nose delivers a basic "generic" beer aroma with some sweetish, but not particularly grainy, malt. It's light bodied and crisp in the mouth. The flavor is as the nose suggests, with an adjunct-laden maltiness that's backed by a balancing bitterness (at least it's not overly sweet!). And, it's cleanly fermented as well. Like so many other "island" lagers, it's crisp and refreshing, and serves a purpose. Throw a few of these on ice the next time you go to the beach or out on the boat!

Purchased on sale for $2.99 a six pack. Poored a slightly cloudy amber-straw color with white long-lasting puffy head.Smell is slighty sweet. taste is refreshing but nothing outstanding. Left a not-pleasant taste. Easy drinking. Tasted nice after a long hot day of driving.

2 Dollar Bottle. Listed as a Latin American Pilsner

Appearance: Looked like a normal adjunct lager. Straw yellow color. Nice malty froth on top. Poured with a two finger head.

Smell: Hoppy...with some spices barely detectable...but there.

Taste: Is this really a pilsner? tastes relatively true to the style. Decent hop kick at the end with some spices. Hop kick doesn't linger at all. Has some malt and a bit of a flat corn taste. Tastes nice

Mouthfeel: Rather full bodied for a pilsner. Defintly more full bodied than a Budweiser or normal marco's like that.

Drinkability: The weak hop kick makes it really go down. This would be an awesome session beer.
