1.13/5 rDev -57.4%
Light golden yellow color, almost without bubbles. And almost without foam, also.
The smell is awful. Mais, wet cardboard.
Citric and sweetish,
The taste too. To sweet, and indeed undrinkable.
Nothing more to say, as this brew is gone directly down the drain.

First of all, I did not like the presentation. The label is dull and unappealing.
Appearance: very clear with a pale gold color. White Head, moderately low with impaired retention.
Aroma: unpleasant aroma with strong corn notes.
Taste: husky, very adjuncty. I could found neither the barley malt nor the hops.
Mouthfeel: dry, high carbonation, low alcoholic strength (my bottle stated 4.7% instead of 4), light body.
Finish: slightly bitter and very short.
Overall: boring and characterless macro lager. I really did not like and will not recommend this one.

Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a tiny bubbly head with not much retention and no lacing. Aroma of light adjunct is quite bland. Taste is incredibly bland with light ginger ale feel and almost no malt. Body is incredibly thin with almost no body and medium carbonation.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a very light yellow color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is of pungent adjuncts, grain, lager yeast and a faint touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of grain and light lager yeast. Then some mild adjunct and malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is very faint and there's a distinct lack of balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.
M: Crisp but not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.
D: Not very flavorful, despite being light it does not go down very easily, not too filling, very mild kick, even though this is not a good style there are a lot of other beers in the style I would pick first.

I had a bottle and it poured a light gold, US Macro style. Little bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Quite bubbly. It has a bitter/citrusy smell to it.
It kind of has a bitter taste like a Pilsner at first. But the taste very quickly wears off (like two seconds). And a minute later there is nothing left on your palette except for a mild sourness.

269cl can bought in Cartagena (Colombia) and opened on 1st Feb 2013 while off the coast of Mexico.
Tasted cheap, which it wasn't: I got stung by a young lad in a dark shed for a bottle of water and this can for $10.00, the little shit. I suppose he and his family needed the money more than me though.
To be fair it looked fine: your usual lager/pilsner golden clear and bright body with a fading head of white.
Sadly it then began to fail: seaweed and metallic in the nose and mouth, dry and boring feel to the whole thing. My Colombian box is now ticked.

Light golden color with a head of short retention.
Not pleasant smell of corn and faint notes of floral hops.
Flavor of corn, malt and floral hops. Hints of butter and vanilla. Mild dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation.
Average adjunct lager, a bit more bitter but not really refreshing. It seems they sell more the “Chicas Aguila” than real beer.

2.17/5 rDev -18.1%
Appearance: Pours a clear, bright yellow body with a tiny, white head.
Smell: Sweet-smelling corn aroma riddling with skunkiness smelling of unwashed swim suits. Bleh.
Taste: Sweaty, sweet pale malts and corn with a gulp of drainage basin water. Ugh. Quick hint of flowers. There's a skunkiness here that would give even Heineken a run for its money.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A beer that elicits feelings of surprise, worry, and disappointment.

Well there's a little lacing, other than that its a typical pale straw yellow. It smells like a mix of corn and cheap chardonnay and tastes a little sweeter. The flavor is quite low and I'd call this a light lager considering the low alcohol and taste.
I guess this beer goes to show Columbia can make a fizzy lager with the best of them. Kudos to you.

Another lager on the menu.
Pours with a typical clear, golden color, and is topped with a medium white head of short retention. Also, quite bubbly.
There's not much to say about the nose really, since it's pretty weak with only faint grainy hops present.
The taste is similar. Not much there, light and feels watered down. The start is slightly sweet, while the finish does have a minimum amount of bitterness.
Very easy to drink, but not much to the taste really.

Poured into pils glass -
Pours straw yellow with a one-finger head that descends to barely a cover. A little lacing sticks.
The smell is of sweet grainy malt and cereal adjuncts.
The taste is of sweet malt and husk. A touch of sulfur mixed in. Sweetness "balanced" by overwatering. Hops here? Well, if there are they are very bland. A bit soapy. Quite salty. No finish to speak of. A subtle chemical-like aftertaste.
The body is thin - some slickness. A touch of dryness is there, or else I would have had the impression of drinking something akin to tonic water.
Another misuse of the term "pilsener", which the label claims that it is. Whatever - I reviewed it as a macro-lager and it still falls short. Certainly not worth spending import prices on when we have our own swill here.
