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.

Bottle from Maruhn. Another bland cereal lager, although it is thirst quenching, a plus for the hot climates. Just average all around, not great, but that bad.

From Festival de las Naciones, Sevilla. In Ikea's pilsen glass. Watching "Circuito Cerrado". A bit better than the typical spanish industrial pilsner.
