This is the last review of crappy beer I drank on my recent two week trip to South American and the Caribbean. There was one good beer in there (Ironshore Bock in the Cayman Islands), but this one was another loser, as expected.

But it was not a bummer to drink. I had it in the street in front of a little shop in the old city section of Panama City, Panama. It was cheap - way less than a dollar, and when you are on a cruise, anything under $4 is a deal. It is hot in Panama, but really it was not that hot a day, but the beer was very refreshing.

It had no character, though. Typical American style crap. I wonder if they will ever figure out that tourists would love some good beer. Maybe the natives need to want it first, they are probably the primary consumers of this.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a clear, straw colored body. The head fades fairly quickly and leaves little lace,

S - Grassy hops and a touch of malt.

T - Much like the aroma with some vegetal notes to the malt and mild bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, a pretty standard international light lager that is a bit better than most from its region.

Clear golden body with half finger head with some retention and lacing. Pale malt and sweet corn aroma, some honey. Flavor of pale malts which are only mildly bitter and musty with more of a sweet corn presence. Light body and moderate carbonation with a crisp finish.

I will say this about Atlas, their marketing is everywhere in Panama. At least a third of the bars were painted in Atlas blue with the Atlas log plastered everywhere.

Poured into a glass, the beer is light gold with a nose of grass and grains.

The taste is slightly sweet and a bit grainy. Some sight floral notes and corn. It reminds me a bit of a High Life with all that corn. Hops are on the label but are pretty much MIA from the beer.

The mouth is crisp with good carbonation. It is easy to pair with the local cuisine. All-in-All, a kind of standard hot weather lager.
