I bought a cold can of this from a street vendor in front of the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas in Cartagena for $2. Selling them for that much to Americans has to be a great living for a Columbian, and the vendors are providing an important service. I was happy to support them. There were vendors everywhere we went and they were selling any and every thing.

We did not walk up the Castillo (it is huge) but drinking a quick light beer at 9:00 in the morning standing in front of it on a typically hot day in Columbia was a pleasant experience, even if the beer is a lot like bad American swill (a miller would be a major improvement over this).

The beer has little character, but I would recommend it in the circumstances under which I bought it - it was there, it was cheap, I was on vacation, why not. BTW, I enjoyed drinking it with a new friend who was sharing my cab, Oz, from San Francisco. Cheers, Oz.

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.
