A: Very pale yellow with a bubbly pure white head that creates a pretty fat pillow. Retention is moderate and lacing more than expected.
S: husky, a little corny sweetness, a little steel, and some herbal
T: A little more herbal in the flavor with a touch of leaf, there's a bit of malt and a touch of dryness and less sweetness than the nose. For the style, you could do a lot worse.
M: Crisp and surprisingly clean, expectedly (very) light body.

i drank this beer extensively while at a resort in panama. It's the most flavorful take on american adjunct lager i've tried outside of high end craft brewers in the states.

In panama plces brag about how cold their beer is, and many do keep it exceptionally chilly. One big reason for this is that none of the three ndomestic brands are particularly good, think bud heavy/ miller etc. However, these fridig beers are exceptionally pleasing on Hot days, especially when paired with a fried fish or some patacones. In the month I spent in Panama I ound balboa to be the most consistent of the three domestics, not amazing but inoffensive in an enjoyable way.
