3/5  rDev -12.3%

Worthy effort of a mass-produced ice beer. Tastes very similar to the Balboa lager with a slightly heavier malt after taste.

Serving type: bottle

Panama

3.05/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

The good thing of a panamenian beer is that you can drink them until your hand drops dead or just be really full, this one in particular is one of the strongest in the country with 4.8% of acohol level (and not the 5.1% as shown on the page).
It has a yellow-see-trough-glass appearance
One tip: Panama is so hot, you MUST drink your beer within less than 6 minutes... or else

Taste is bit sweeter than the original Balboa brand with less feeling.. in the end a refreshing beer for just another hot country.

Maybe I am being a little good with those beers, but there is nothing between in the scores. It was refreshing and good for the heath. No corny additives at least notorious. And although,, this is new, Ifound it very good. Sometimes, the "ICE" name reminds us some new light lager beer with crappy flavor, but not this.

Serving type: can
