Appearance – This one was yellowish-orange in color with a huge, full, white fluffy head that actually showed a bit of retention.

Smell – This grain has a touch of “Bavarian” lager smell, truth be known, but mostly it’s a sickly sweet grain bomb.

Taste – The knarly grain comes out much worse at the taste. The nice lagered flavor is there, but it’s so small it can’t quite make up for the nasty grain.

Mouthfeel – This one is a bit bigger than light-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and a nice, refreshing carbonation.

Drinkability – I didn’t sink this beer, although I drank it in the kitchen in the event I lost my nerve.

Hola mi amigos! I am sitting in the old centro part of Cartagena enjoying the wonderful warm March evening. I just completed a self guided walking tour through this maze of 'hoods with much concern and anticipation. Growing concern for my safety after a few wrong turns. Thankfully this part of town is well patrolled! So I am parched, sitting at an outdoor bar in Plaza de la Aduana...and anything would taste good at this point. Ordered up a Club Colombia...hit the spot. The beer is among the Mexican style family, although this has a hop that help to come off the pallet clean. Standard yellow color, white head/no lace, grainy smell, easy drinking. Obviously I would not select this beer over many of my favorites, but while in Colombia...its just fine!

12 oz bottle.
Freshness date stamped on the cap.
This sample was not fresh, but at least it was on a bottom shelf in a darker area of the store, and it had a layer of dust on it that hopefuly helped to keep light out.

Dark golden, fizzy short lived head, no lacing.

corn and grain aroma.

Flavor is sweet corn and slightly acidic.

Dry finish.

A: Pale straw, small white head, plenty of smallish bubbles steadily rising to a small white cap. Keeps a ring and leaves a bit of lace.

S: Touch of grainy, husky, crackery malt with a hint of sweetness. Floral & fruity lager esters – almost sort of tropical. Just reasonable nose for a smallish light lager.

T: Sweet, floral, & fruity estery sweetness first. Then some pils-esque cookie/malt sweetness leads into a grainy and dry crackery backbone. As sweetness fades the hops emerge. Herbal & grassy with a fair bit of bitterness that is nicely cleansing.

M: Closer to medium than to light for body. Just barely under-matched carbonation is finely textured. But not really soft or smooth – more of a bright yet relaxed fell. Leans semi-sweet with some sticky sugars. Just a hint of hop drying in the finish.

D: Nothing creative or remarkable here, but well done for a "premium" (lowish gravity) lager. I think this might be a bit over the 4.0% listed on BA. Very nice for a lawnmower, probably more appropriate for a BBQ on a cooler day (the sweetness). Of the hundreds of this sort made around the world, this one is solidly middle of the pack.

We are talking about Colombia now, meaning that their lager is going to be an American Adjunct. No matter how much people hate this type of beer, there is nothing more refreshing than this IF well made! Now this one is okay too, quite nicely constructed although slightly on the thinner side with a slightly dry and bitter finish. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it a lot, no nasty cheap overtones, still quite well made and good to drink. Cheers!

Poured a medium straw hue with a four finger bone white pillowy head. There was very good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell was very grainy and indicative of corn adjunct. Light flowery hop aroma as well.

The taste was very grainy and a bit husky. A small streak of bitterness as well. Happily no sweetness was detected. Bitter aftertaste.

The mouthfeel was light and a bit slick.

Overall a decent macro lager. Different, but the same - if you know what I mean.

Smells real sweet like a corn mash. Pours to a bright yellow with a big bubble foamy head that all but disappears except for a clingy ring. Taste is also corny-like sweet with a slight bitterness in the middle and a dry slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel has good carbonation masking a slight lack of flavor. A good beer for the afternoon with a hot Bogota sun beating down. What it lacks in flavor it makes up in refreshment and drinkability.

'05 Re-review:

Decent golden colour with a considerably retaining head and permanent carbonation, very bright and appealing (for a macro). Smell is foremost wheaty, hops well hidden to the nose but present nonetheless.
Nice body/carbonation combination, dry and bitter yet holding a nice wheaty and grainy taste. A very decent lager, IMO: it's the sort to find at any bar where nothing else is available, and still be willing to have.
