Uno mass por favor...this may be the best of the bunch that I have tried whilst visiting Colombia! I do believe Lady GaGa would "Poker Face" this beer! This is a nice cerveza, a cross between Aguila and Club Colombia...mi favorito so far. The color is yellow.... no surprise aquia! No real smell, white head, weak lacing. Decent taste, could drink the shit out of it! As I read somewhere before...LAWNMOWER BEER! Stay thirsty my friends!

A: Very pale yellow, small white head that falls fast, some big bubbles zinging up, and no lace.

S: Quite faint. Light estery / fruity / floral lager nose. Ghost hint of sweetness. Minimal aroma.

T: Some crackery pils, touch of sweetness. Light adjunct noticeable, but in the background. Herbal & floral hops with okay bitterness. Gets sort of a tea-like hint as you go & also develops a hint of citrus rind. Becomes a touch astringent way in the end. Overall – some okay flavor, but light. Refreshing though.

M: Medium-light body with very ample CO2. Oddly – it pushes the fizz-o-meter without managing to really be crisp. Initial soft hint of sweetness and then drying from attenuation & some hops.

D: Very much a macro type lager of the light American adjunct sort. Quite refreshing & easy drinking. A fairly nice little beer. Fair for what it is – Colombian lawnmower beer.

Smells like most adjunct lagers, sweet, corny and not any hops to really speak of. Pours to a pale yellow with a nice foamy head that recedes fast but not instantly like alot of this style. Taste is the same corny sweetness with hardly any bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is thin as expected from the color of the brew. Drinkability is good, you can pound alot of these at altitude without any adverse effects. This would be a great lawnmower beer. I actually prefer it a little more (slightly "maltier")than the more common Agulia in these parts. When in Rome do as the Romans....

A poor branching for this large brewery. Pours a very pale golden tone with an extremely quick to fade foam head that leaves behind very little lacing. The smell, light on hops et all other logical properties, hints what the flavour is: watery, thin with a bit of bitterness and alcohol present. how uninviting.

Pours a clear golde ncolor and a thin white head that disappears rather (too) quick.
The aroma is the already familiar gentle smell of malts and grains.
The taste starts sweet. The body is slightly watery and it finishes with a weak bittery finish.
Drinkable, non-offensive, but could use a bit more taste.

This beer, along with other ubiquitous lagers that can be found in Colombia, is rather uninteresting as far as beers go. However, it is quite drinkable and cheap. I think that should count for something.

It seems that most the descreptions here are apt. I would add that this beer has a slight salt aftertaste.

A: too much macro lager appearance, very pale straw in color, traslucent, looks like water, lots of carb, generates a good head, white in color, creamy, richy and good retention

S: adjuncts, corn, butter, some malt but is so weak

T: beeter than expected, but still average, metallic, light body, a small bitterness at the end, final is short

This one pours a pale clean golden colour, with a small head that fades away instantly. Smell? Just clean, but what is it? Taste, just another beer more for the mass market, clean but boring and dull. Sure, you can drink a lot of Poker and it's refreshing, but thre's nothing you can say about it.

there's some tendency in Colombian beers,. .. is not that all taste the same, but is actually that most of them tastes like water with some additives and flavor,. .. is just something strange to find in a Macrobrewery, is like they don't care what they produce at the end, just another brand name, same taste, nothing impresive.

low abv%, corn & bread taste, so after a while you feel full and just drank like 2 of this :S
in the end for me this beer in plain... .

Sweeeet. First American reviewer. Brought directly from Colombia.

Pours a clear straw with a smaller white head. Nose is like dirt. More like when you have wet dirt and wet grass together. Mild sweet tone, but not enough to save it. The flavor kicks with a quick hit of sweet that oddly stays right on the forward part of my tongue and then vanishes quickly. Basically this is your typical lager really. There isn't much going on that separates it from the rest in its class. But hey...this makes 52 countries so far!

Can. From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. Playing Oceanhorn. More decent that industrial lagers around here usually are, with a pleasant malt, softly sweet, no off-flavors and no watery feeling

Better than American adjunts. More flavor and Bock like.
