Poured from a bottle into a glass. From notes.
3.5/3.0/2.5/3.5/2.5

White head fades fast. Lots of effervescence very pale yellow.
Sweetish and grainy, but not entirely unpleasant.
One of the many, many generic lagers in the world. It's saddening, but unsurprising. That said, it's not actively BAD. Just, dull. The taste, such as it is, is ephemeral, leaving nothing but an objectionable sweetness.
Not even watery as much as bland. Goes down smooth with a hint of carbonation and touch of dryness
It is what it is. Not recommended, but when in Ecuador...

Pours smooth and light with decent head. Smell is bland, flavor is light with little aftertaste. The real kicker with this beer is the hoppy residue it leaves behind in your mouth. Much more than would be expected from such a light beer.

My wife brought this back for me. It pours up crystal clear, light blonde in color, with a medium size foamy head. The smell is weak with a hint of corn. The taste is very mild and one dimensional. There is virtually no aftertaste. Overall this is an easy drinker if completely unremarkable.

Just another pilsener.
Clear and golden color, covered with a sizeable but quickly settling white frothy head.
Malty and grainy aroma is relatively weak.
Light and watery taste, starts sweet, finishes with a small bitterness. No real aftertaste.
Nothing special, but still drinkable.

Had this in Ecuador, it was without a doubt the worst beer I have ever had. Unfortunately, it's just about all there is there, such is life.

Appearance: 2.5 - It looks like bud light, pours like it too.
Smell: 2.25 - Smells like cheap beer and sadness
Taste: 1 - the best way I can describe the taste is if you took a keystone and left it in the sun too long.
Mouthfeel: 1 - Way over carbonated and just unpleasant to drink.
Overall: 1.25 - The worst beer I've ever had.

I live in Ecuador, so you might think this is not a fair review, but I will try to be as objective as possible

from the moment you pour it, you can see a fantastic golden body, medium head.
Not too carbonated as the other beers from the same company. If properly cold this could easily be one of the best of its kind. Unfortunately for some reason most places in Ecuador don't serve it that way.
Smell its nice and honestly more better than its flavor.
