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.

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.

The colour is straw yellow (5 EBC), the liquid clear. The finger thick airy head sinks down to a white lid.

The smell is very, very light. Some wet paper, some spices (cardamom?).

The taste is very light. Some sweetness, some paper and pulp. Fragile anonymous bitterness in the background. Light, almost non-existing body. Hints of flour and butter in the aftertaste as well as some sour-bitter chemical notes.

The carbonation is strong. Lots of big short-lived bubbles. The liquid is watery.

Well, it is a tropical adjunct lager. Some off-flavours, but I have had much worse ones.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with delicate lacing covering the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of corn and musty grapes in the nose. The grapes seem to become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some notes of chemical flavors and hints of white wine.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The chemical flavors in this beer do not make it very pleasing to drink.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with a light amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin (1/8 finger tall) white head that quickly reduces to a patch of very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a very thin ring at the edges of the glass (not quite all the way around the glass). Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of corn adjunct malts and fruity with a slightly chemical smell.

T: There is something off in the taste of this beer, something akin to the chemical flavors that are subtle in non-alcoholic beer but much stronger. I'm not a fan of the taste of this beer. Light amounts of bitterness but it does not linger.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Very light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Not a huge fan of this one, way too much chemical taste and smell for me to enjoy it.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Yellow leaning pale, small white head falls fast to a ring, multiple streams of bubbles. The ring stays with a few skim patches, but no lace.

S: General light lager (macro-ish) nose. Some fruity esters, some grain, perhaps some floral & softly herbal hops. Okay strength. About as expected, not bad but a bit bland.

T: Quite macro like. Grain & adjunct in both flavor and sweetness. But not really all that much of any of anything. And that lets a bit of herbal / hay hops show with mild bittering. Basic lawnmower / quencher taste.

M: Under medium body with over-matched yet softly expansive carbonation. Refreshing & a bit crisp from CO2. Some drying way late in the finish.

D: It is funny that they make a light version of it as this original is already so light itself. They appear to sell bunches of it, so . . . I guess it is proof that the mass appeal lawnmower thing works in Colombia too.
