Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, vegetables, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with a very grainy aftertaste. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is drinkable but very mild in both the aroma and taste.

3.26/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Attractive fizzy yellow in the tall Pilsner glass with a decent foamy cap. Long-lasting lacing and plenty of spritz in the mouthfeel, which is what you came here for. Not much aroma, but a cheery beery smell.

Flavor is corn and grain. A little sweet, but not enough to throw off the delicate balance. Not a trace of hop flavor, though a slight bitterness is welcome at the end. Better than average crap lagers.

This beer was meant for gulping and that's just what I'll do. From a good old brown glass quart jug bought at a Palm Springs liquor store that also has a fine selection of Clamato-infused beers.

Poured from a brown 32 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head, highly carbonated. Smell is of corn, some sweetness. Taste is crisp, light, some corn and grain. Feels light in the mouth and overall would probably be a refreshing beer to drink in the tropics.

Regia Extra has a medium, white head, a decent amount of lacing, a clear, yellow appearance, and some tiny particles floating about. The aroma is of sweet bread and a hop zing. Taste is of lightly-toasted barley malt, sweetness, cracker, grass, and it is balanced with a nice hop bite. Moutfeel is light to medium, and Regia Extra finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and mostly dry. This is a delicious beer.

Poured a very light gold colour that was extremely transparent. It looks thin, if that's possible. It retained a small white head, though. The smell is of grains and water. It SMELLS watery. I haven't tasted it yet. But I can already smell it. It also smells Mexican, if that's possible. It has the typical smell of many Mexican adjunct lagers, even though it is from El Salvador. Not to say that Mexican beers are really THAT much different than their American adjunct counterparts.
The taste is really quite good. It is refreshing. That is a quality that I would consider good in a beer from south of the border, where it is hot most of the time. Reviewing this in winter seems inappropriate, but I can see myself enjoying this during Texas' spring or summer. It doesn't taste too starchy as some Mexican beers do, it doesn't have a weird sour flavour or any off flavours, really. This is SERIOUSLY refreshing. But it still manages to taste a bit like beer and is well balanced. Thumbs up on this. This is something I'd totally go for in a hot place like El Salvador. Of course, if I was somewhere THAT hot, I'd probably prefer an aqua fresca to a beer most of the time. I've tried drinking when it's 100 degrees outside. Not fun. Anyway, if you want a very refreshing light-flavoured beer that still tastes like beer, this is what you want. Enjoy.

Out of a big ol’ 32 oz bottle this beer was a clear, golden color with a towering three-finger head that was short lived. Spots of lacing but nothing more. The aroma was of pale malt, a little adjunct grains and a hints of hops. The flavors were pretty good for an adjunct beer. I tasted dry biscuity malt, rice and corn adjuncts, something like saltine crackers but almost no hops. The mouthfeel was foamy, the body light and the carbonation medium/high. Nothing special by itself, but special within its category of otherwise awful beers.

Oh no you didn't. Uh yeah sure why not. This is one giant ass bottle here at 32 fl. ounces. Looks like a grenade. Hey call it an intro to the temporary neighborhood and a hello to El Salvador! Onward and poured into a shaker pint glass. Hey it's either this or Bud Chelada...

A very shocking white, I mean just big bright white head is produced with some clumpyness but it dissolves in clumps pretty quickly. Body is a pale straw color looking like a simple beer. Very tiny spotted lacing. Part of the edges look like green hues also. THe drink though manages to keep a good solid white puck throughout. Ok not bad here...

Smell. A very small grain, but not much going on. It was stronger off the pour, but really seems to have disappeared. Clean wet, kind of boring, but nothing offensive.

First taste is at first not much of anything, then it becomes slightly sweet. Sweet grainy (corn?) tasting, almost syrupy. The brew does have some body to it I must admit which kind of shocked me. This isn't a weak wet mess. However, there isn't really much going on here besides it.

Overall this isn't much to write home about, or even much to say. So I'll just stop writing and leave it at that.

A - Golden wheat color, decent 1/2" head, drops to nice lacing around the sides

S - Sweet toasted bread, some cheap boozy smell

T - Light sweet biscuit flavor, relatively malty, nearly no hops

M - watery

D - Not too bad considering it came in a 32oz bottle for 3 bucks from the bad part of town. Very surprising, good for a session beer shared with a few buddies
