Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Standard adjunct aroma of sweet malt, mild grassy hops and corn, a hint of soap. Flavor follows; sweet malt, hints of bread, grassy hops and biscuit, tapers off quickly to a watery light sweet malt finish with an odd, light residual unflavored bitterness. Light bodied, but decent carbonation. A fairly typical adjunct lager, lighter in finish than normal, but as usual, harmless and bland. Wouldn't be too bad on a hot Honduran afternoon, but just ticker fodder for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: golden/straw colored; effervescent; big frothy white head

Smell: citrusy; malty; grassy

Taste: like a slightly hoppy water; very thin throughout; like a megabrew pale lager; not much to talk about here; probably good on a hot day after mowing the lawn, but otherwise, meh.

Mouthfeel: thin and watery

A - pours a pale golden yellow with a pretty nice looking head on it. The head settles and forms what amounts to an above average looking adjunct lager.

N - nose is nothing but aluminum/metal and some off grain flavors. Not too pleasant on the nose.

T - the taste is better than the smell - soft grainy malts with a touch of dry grassy hops (the hops are a reach). Nothing else going on - pretty straightforward adjunct (not that I was expecting anything else).

M - nice carbonation and body

D - overall, it is somewhat refreshing, but would be even more so if there was some more flavor in it. Obviously, when in Honduras there aren't a lot of options, but I think I would take a water over this for the price.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours gold with a medium white head, some solid lace.

S: Grainy husky malt, some sugar cane, quite pleasant, especially in this style.

T: Sweet grains, lots of malt flavour, hint of grassy hops, sugar cane.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, a bit grainy and cloying in the end. It is refreshing though.

O: I've never had a beer from Honduras, and this is pretty darn good. I'm enjoying this effort. Crisp, cold, easy drinking, beats the Hell out of Corona in the style from Latin America.
