2.84/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A 330ml bottle with a spanish BB date - possibly Jan 2017? Acquired a little while back from B&M. The label calls it the beer of Colombia.

A: Poured into a pilsner glass. A clear light-gold colour with some floating sediment and low carbonation. Forms a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating.

S: Aroma of husky pale malt, a touch of corn and faint stewed leaves. Bland but inoffensive.

T: Tastes of very light malt with a hint of stewed leaves, subtle corn and vague overcooked veg. A faint acrid note in the background. Mild bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is light with soft carbonation. A bit textureless but OK. Aftertaste of vague sweet grain, husks and mild stewed leaves.

O: A bland and subpar lager, but about average as macro brews go. Looks the part, while the flavour and aroma are almost missing. So-so body. Not too many off-notes. I guess this might quench your thirst in a hot climate, but otherwise it's pretty forgettable. Not one to hunt down.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

crystal clear, pale yellow, lots of medium sized bubbles, medium coarse foam reducing fast
aroma is Pilsener malt, a little butttery but not in a disturbing way, hint ofspicy noble hops
Pilsener malt, some sweetness that could be attributed to corn possibly, buttery again, minerally, hops just to balance no real taste or bitterness
refreshing, feels like mineral water with lots of carbonation, thin
Typical pale lager from a hot country. The slight buttery note adds to complexity in my opinion rather than be something I would like to smash on. If the world only had such beers it would be a shame, but there are other styles and therefore also such beers have a place in this world in particular on a hot summer day.

Pours a pale yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains and sweet malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes fairly clean.

Light golden color with a head of short retention.
Not pleasant smell of corn and faint notes of floral hops.
Flavor of corn, malt and floral hops. Hints of butter and vanilla. Mild dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation.
Average adjunct lager, a bit more bitter but not really refreshing. It seems they sell more the “Chicas Aguila” than real beer.
