Review: Bottle of Cerveza Polar: ABV:5.00%

The Polar Pilsner from Venezuela, the vacation beer perfect for the beach and served ice cold.

The appearance wasn’t too bad, looked good. On pour, a nice white head developed which quickly dissipated. The beer was a pale, yellow colour, and with some thin lacing

I found the aroma was pretty strong, a very acute smell, very sweet, of malts, grain, very citrusy. I did like the smell.

Taste was interesting. I did taste what felt like some fruit, lemon and apples. This beer tasted more like a fruit juice than a beer, very sweet.

Was very easy to drink, had a good flavour and taste on all fronts, grainy and sweet malts. Easy to drink, nice good mouthfuls, a nice feel on the tongue. Not a strong beer, and no strong aftertaste, but still pretty sessionable, with a very crisp, clean finish and smooth to drink.

Not a bad beer overall. Can imagine it must be nice sipping it ice cold on a beach near the Caribbean.

7oz Bottle schlepped back by Eric A, Thanks for the hookup my mule :)
Pale yellow color, bubbly white quickly dissipating head. Pilsner maltiness with a hint of metallic and little else. Not horrible, I could drink these if I had to.

Had while in Aruba, from 8oz bottle. really one of the worst beers I ever had. light straw color, no head, grainy vegetal taste reminicent of corn mixed with pizza dough. Really terrible. This beer made me not want to live.

Bottle brought back from Aruba, poured in a shaker pint. The beer is a pale, light yellow coloring, with a frothy, light, foamy, white head, and a ton of fast moving carbonation bubbles throughout the body. Aromas of toasted corn, subtle floral notes, and a musty barn character. Flavors are pretty watered down, with a hint of toast and not much else. Wow, this is almost water. The body is smooth, but pretty limp. The aftertaste is musty and a bit stale. The finish is just as stale and limp as the rest of the beer. Meh.
