From a bottle. Clear golden color with a few white bubbles. Skunky aroma. Light body with good carbonation. Tastes of grain and corn with a bitter finish. Average Euro lager, a tick mark for Venezuela anyway.

Cerveza Polar, i would say is one of the most popular beers in Venezuela. Although there are other brands Polar is the favorite and first choice.
Talking about this beer, light yellow color, refreshing, ABV 4.5, taste good nothing remarkable. Birra for everyone and everyday... cheers.
A couple of days later, I'm going to taste Polar 1941 special edition ABV 7.
Then I would tell you, how it goes..

DATE: July 25, 2022... OCCASION: our first night in Aruba is a success--time to celebrate with a beer I haven't had in more than two decades... GLASSWARE: nondescript 10 oz. pokal... a picture of consistency: its light golden amber body builds a bank of soft, craggy head that leaves behind articulate lacing--attractive, save for the lack of effervescence... sharp, sweet malts, burnt toffee, a bit of weirdly expressed bitterness, candied sugars, and perfumed hops make this a beer that sends a "drink me quickly" message... beefier than expected, it holds its place long enough after the initial sip to leave a softer, grainy finish... a bit more than a rinser, the malts are slightly burnt, sweet and almost chewable--striking for a beer that otherwise requires a tropical setting to be enjoyed... I don't mind that I waited this long to review a beer I innocently, randomly ordered in Russell's--it most likely tastes better in the setting we're in now!

Pretty bad. Essentially less nose than Michael Jackson. Low on flavor. Tastes like cheap 28oz. clearglass lager in the hood in August. Feel is fine for 8oz but it gets flat quick. Wouldn’t really purchase this with my own money by choice if there were other options.

Found this in a grocery store in the caribbean a while back and it was cheap, crisp and refreshing - perfect for a warm summer day. Surprisingly good for the price if you're looking for a lighter beer that's hoppier than an american light beer.

The pour is from an 8 oz. can, that's rather small & interesting. Oh look there is a cute polar bear on the front of the can & the beer pour a medium flow of carbonation with a white foamy head that dies down rather quickly. I do notice a best by date on the bottom of the can which indicates that they're giving this beer a long shelf life. The aroma is of grains with faint corn in the background. The taste matches the nose, but it's subpar compared to many other pilsner beers that I've had in the past. I don't know if this beer is brewed in Aruba, Venezuela, or Florida but wherever it's from it needs a tweak here & there. . It's not a disgusting pilsner nor is it a tasty one either. Cheers! C

Cerveza con cabeza visible. Tiene un cuerpo ligero y es de carbonatación alta. En su aroma se percibe granos, mantequilla y jarabe de maíz. Una vez en boca destaca el jarabe y una sensación herbácea.

Clear straw color with white head. Aroma has just a light malt note, that’s it. Taste follows with the light malt character and a really watery body and almost no flavor.

Bottle at El Cocotero, New York, NY

A: The beer is clear pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of corn adjuncts and a little associated sweetness, bits of grainy malts, and slight hints of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some refreshing properties when it is served ice cold. It was definitely fuller in body compared to what I was expecting.

The bud light of the Caribbean. This was not very good at all. VERY light and little flavor. Drinks like water on a hot day. It is a go to on Curacao. Hey... It was free so I drank it. Oh, and apparently it's brewed in Florida now. Who knew?

It doesn't have much taste, but it is thirst quenching and dry. It has a hint of diacetyl which gives it a smooth drinkability. Not bad at all for the style.
