Rate this behind Salva Vida + Port Royal, but all are very basic.

A - pours darker golden with a white head that settles to thin film and now lace.

S - Faint, grainy with a bit of caramel malts, typical adjunct lager.

T - Starts watery with more malt caramel than the others. A bit sweet, not bad with food. Tiresome.

M - heavily carbonated. Watery, weak, tepid.

Of all Honduran adjuncts, it's got the most caramel malt going.

A - pours golden yellow with a white frothy head that settles to white thin film over it

S - grainy malts and nothing else; typical adjunct lager nose

T - starts off watery and moves on to a bit of a yeasty grainy malt flavor. An extremely subtle
amount of spicy grassy hops is detectable on the finish.

M - full, smooth, carbonated - nothing out of the norm here

D - overall, this wasn't anything mind-blowing or crazy different. It was a typical example of this style and delivered how I thought it would.

A- Pours a very clear dry grassy color, which is to say, is almost colorless. It appears to be quite heavily carbonated, with big bristly bubbles aggressively rising to the top of my glass. The head is actually impressive at first, being probably around 2 full fingers thick, and also being quite cloud like in puffiness....unfortunately it doesn't last long, quickly disappearing into a thick-ish layer, which remains super white. The lacing is actually not bad at first for this type of brew, with patchy foam clinging to the side of my glass.

S- Nothing much going on here....just some mild grainy/grassy aromas happening. Overall, this is a bland smelling "pilsner", more like basic American lager....lots of corn....boiled of course. Nothing in terms of hop aroma either....oh well.

T- Adjuncts abound here...corn husk, grass, raw grain, and really no sign of hop bitterness...perhaps some dryness on the finish but nothing of note here. I will say that it is a refreshing beer to drink on the hot sandy beaches of Roatan!

M- Thin bodied, and full of crisp sparkling carbonation....the way an AAL should be! Again, this is somewhat dry on the finish so it isn't all bad....just nothing special.

O- This is an easy drinking, mindless type of beer that I have no problems with enjoying on a hot summer day. The downside to this one, like BevCo's other productions, are all bland and too similar. Meh, this is fine for what it is...
