12 oz green bottle brought back by a friend from Ecuador, thanks a bunch Stephanie! Has a stamp of 220110, not sure if that is the bottled date or best by. Pours a very clear, light gold color with a thick cap of stark white foam. Retention is actually really good for the style but does not leave much lacing.

Not a whole lot going on in the nose...some lightly sweet grains and a mild pilsner-esque hop aroma. Nothing offensive here and smells like many other caribbean, south/central american pilsner style lagers.

Taste is pretty fresh, there is a decent amount of leafy hops that are probably more noticeable due to the very light malt bill here. Just a flash of lightly sweet corn and then it is gone, replaced by some carbonation scrubbing and a touch of bitterness. It's not too bad really, there are certainly many lagers out there that are worse. I could down a few of these after a hike in the Andes, no problem.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Straw golden body with little to no head.
S: A bit sweet mixed with corn and dough.
T: Pretty standard for an adjunct lager, not a whole lot there and pretty watery, but I'm guessing that is what they were going for.
M: Pretty high carbonation, thin, good cold.
D: Carbonation too high to make it garner anything more than a "4", but still could easily have a few. Though it's allegedly a step up from the other main Ecuadorian beer, Pilsener, I didn't notice much of a difference. Both were enjoyable to have on hot days at a local nar in Quito.

light green bottle, twist-off cap, best before end of June 2007

Pours golden straw yellow with a thin head that becomes a short-lived patch.

The smell is of a strong chemicalish sulfur. Not much more.

Ah...sulfur and cooked veggies. Hints of sweet malt and maybe some grassiness are restrained by a chemical-like, adjunct-like sweetness - not unlike cooked vegetable oil. Only a hint of actual malt. Hops are hardly present, if at all. The sweetness seems somewhat restrained only by over-watering.

The feel is rather watery. Some sweetness lingers, but so does the seltzery feel. The name is "Club" - not far off from club soda.

The aftertaste doesn't help. I hope that this is not the finest that Ecuador has to offer. Even for what it is, it's pretty bad.
