3.5/5  rDev +25.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pale golden/straw; medium frothy white head, decent lacing

Smell: malt with light hops and citrus; reminds me of a Radler in aroma

Taste: Juicy malt on the sweeter side; light hops, but just enough to balance the sweetness; clean and crisp; nothing special, but a decent brew for a hot day

Mouthfeel: medium body, slightly creamy

Remarks: Gift from a friend of my wife; pretty pleased overall

3.2/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12oz green bottle into a pint glass. The label expressly says "Pilsner style", so I'm not sure why this is listed as a Dortmunder.

Appearance: medium-light golden hue with a strong effervescence and a finger of frothy white foam with surprisingly good retention. A nice lace is left on the glass as I drink, and more than halfway through there's still a good finger of foam going on -- great!

Smell: quite malty with a little bit of over-sweetness. There's also a nice graininess here providing necessary counterpoint to the extract-like malt character. Very light noble hops are present; overall, though, it's a surprisingly clean and serviceable aroma.

Taste: kind of extract-malty with minimal hops and, again, a hint of graininess. A little bit less inspiring than the aroma. This is still pretty clean, though, even if a bit bland.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and an OK creaminess. Maybe not the best in the world, but not bad at all.

Overall: this beer seems to be pretty strongly underrated in my opinion -- it's definitely no gag-inducing adjunct lager. That said, it's a somewhat bland but serviceable beer; it's not really crisp enough to be a Pilsner nor rich enough to be a Dortmunder, but it's refreshing enough for me.

2.85/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear yellow with a frothy head. Nose is grainy, cereal malts without much hop presence. Taste starts off with sweeter malts, which turn more to a softer cereal malts; not much else complexity on the palate. Mouth is full and has nice carbonation. Overall, kind of what I expected - light, crisp, and refreshing.

Bottle shared by solidfunk (RB), 12oz green bottle into a tulip. RARE HONDURAS TICK.

Clear pale yellow, white head with good retention and lacing. Nose is doughy, crackery, spicey hops and a bit of urine. Taste is doughy, grainy, old fruit, socks and some malt sweetness. Low carbonation, light palate and mild bitterness. Not at all tasty, pass.

A yellow beer from another country that was not bad. Neutral smell. Some bitterness which makes it reasonably drinkable. Middling mouthfeel. Corn and sugar but not too oppressive.
Thanks Josh for doing a fairly fresh bottle. I could do this at the end of a hot day.

A- Well this one has the same basic coloration as its' sister brews....that being of light grassy/grainy color, and it is super clear. The head is actually quite nice, starting out rather thick and cloud like, before settling into a thick egg white like film over the beer. The lacing is nice too, actually having thick clumps of foam that cling to the side of my glass. As expected, there is aggressive carbonation rising to the top, suggesting a fizzy lager!

S- The aromas are fairly clean here, and suggest adjuncts, which isn't a surprise. There is some malt sweetness, but it is muted. Boiled corn and/or rice are noticed as well, and there is no hop bitterness to smell.

T- The flavor of this one is stronger than its' sister beers, that having a flavor of sweetness, but it seems to be more of a maltodextrin type sweet....not the richer malt I was hoping for. There is more of the corn noted....more like sweet tinned corn so that doesn't go well for me. The finish has a cloying sweetness that lingers....there is really no hop bitterness to be noted here.

M- Medium-ish body, but that, I feel, is due to the added adjunct and/or sweetener to the mix. The carbonation isn't quite as bristly as I thought it would be and is actually quite pleasant....actually has a creamy quality about it!

O- Out of all 4 of this brewerys' products, this one is probably the best in terms of flavor, fullness, aroma, and most definitely looks. Still not one of the better beers out there, it serves it's purpose and if I had to drink this one again, I wouldn't complain...I probably woundn't seek this one out again though, unless on vacation in the Honduras! Average at best, I've definitely had worse!

After a brief trip to Honduras, I picked up all the beer of the country that I could: Barena, Royal Export and Salva Vida. This one was my favorite. Also this was described to me as "womens" beer. Laughable.

A: Standard light stuff, carbonated, pearl white head.

S: Standard slight hop with much grain character.

T: This is where it got a little different, green grapes or fermenting pear. No bitterness to speak of, but more of a white wine flavor than i was expecting.

M: Had a soapy soft quality on the palate. Possibly the use of champagne yeast? Dunno.

O: This was the best of the three I tried because it had something unique about it.

Ok, so this beer marked my return to drinking after a long hiatus and I did have many of them in 100+ weather in Honduras. No this is not a craft beer by any stretch, just a decent adjunct lager that, served ice cold, will go down easy, quench your thirst, and make for a lovely sunset on a tropical third world beach. I wouldn't think of ordering one in the states unless I was on a seriously nostalgic kick, and I will rate this one a little higher than it should be simply for its nostalgia value to me.

Good head with lots of lacing on a clear amber beer. Grainy malt, adjunct flavor, not much in the way of hops, low bitterness, tastes like one of the better AAJL's. Not super flavorful, there's a hint of the pilsner like taste you might expect from this style but not too much. Extremely easy drinking. Clean and dry finish sends you back for more gulps.

This one is all about cold moderately alcoholic refreshment on the beach after a long day in the sun. If you're looking for a better beer experience in Honduras try a Pina Colada cuz you probably ain't gonna find it.
