1.85/5  rDev -21.3%

Light gold colored lager with a large foamy head. A lighter tasting lager, mild taste, not much hoppyness. Mouthfeel is neutral. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Standard lager, not much here to disginguish it from any other lager. Not skunky tasting.

2.25/5  rDev -4.3%

Presentation: 10.1 oz / 300 ml brown bottle with a gold foiled top. No freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Crystal clear pale yellow with a thin ring of lace that has trouble staying around.

Smell: Smells of hop extract within an unfermented beer aroma. Pear fruitiness seems out of place also.

Taste: Thin malt flavour with an odd pear fruitiness on the palate, the mouth feel is vaguely crisp from a medium carbonation. Hop bitterness is of small stature and lets the sweetness take over mostly. Touch of astringent grain in the finish with an unwanted residual sweetness.

Notes: Not recommended at all, not horrible but certainly not worth even trying once. There are many other American lagers which are far superior to this one.

Biela, from Ecuador: Extra light bodied beer, with a head that disappeared immediately. Deep golden color, with a very faint aroma of mild hops, and grain. When cold, it wasn’t bad, particularly in the heat. As it warmed up, unpleasant grainy/malt flavors took over. Not worth another look.

2.17/5  rDev -7.7%

Absolutely clear, pale golden yellow. Head white and quickly fading. Watery feel; first impression was of a sour malty brew ending in sweetness. Sense of saltiness and little hops presence. The lingering aftertaste was not pleasant. Won't go there again; there are too many good lagers out there.

3.03/5  rDev +28.9%

Pours a rather clear straw (yellow) with a white uniform head of short duration. Well carbonated. Nose is reminiscent of freshly harvested cereal grains. Little body beyond the carbonation, the mouthfeel can best be described as watery. The flavor is about what you would expect from the nose: cloyingly-sweet malt with a slight residual bitterness and aftertaste. About what I was expecting: a sweet, slammable light (4%) beer well-suited to a warm climate. Might it pair well with spicy foods? I have the rest of the six pack to find out!

2.3/5  rDev -2.1%

I seem to sample a lot of Bud with diffferent labels. This beer pours with a small white head that disappears rather quickly. Clear bright yellow color, well carbonated. Smells slightly malty, fortunately not skunky but kind of earthy. Starts malty sour, finishes malty stale. Strangely it is also kind of salty. Overall rather boring. Might be okay on a hot Ecuadorean night though.
