Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and grain. Taste is much the same with a corn flake flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but pretty basic.

A -- drank from bottle so gave "average" only
S -- clear, clean, crisp, grassy, even slightly grape-y; very refreshing
T -- follows smell, smooth rather than bitter but has a pleasant slight edge of hops
M -- as expected for a pale lager, not very chewy; also light on carbonation

Overall -- delicious! An excellent beer for a hot day or a hot meal.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of musty grapes in the nose—similar to what you would smell next to a wild grape vine in the late summer.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of musty grapes and hints of malts. A very slight amount of bitterness is noticeable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite good compared to other beers in the style. I definitely found the grape flavors to be quite interesting.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin (1/8 finger tall) bright white head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate amounts of musty malts aromas along with some adjunct malt grains/corns and slightly fruity.

T: The beer is slightly sweet with some adjunct malt notes of grain and corn. Additionally there is some light bitterness from light bodied hops and a light amount of yeast.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: I thought this was a pretty good beer for the style - I enjoyed it and I think that I could probably could have a couple of these. Easy to drink and enjoyable, could be sessionable.

Suprema has a thin-to-medium, white head and a clear, bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, with considerable, stratified lacing left down the glass. The aroma is sweet, lemony, and one gets a bit of malt and stinging hops as well. The flavor is rich, lemony, malty, slightly hoppy, and it even has an odd, cream ale olive oil aspect to it. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Suprema finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. This made for a very nice 6 am breakfast beer. Overall, I loved it!

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance is a clear light yellow with the tiniest of fizzy heads. Head is quick to fade but ok lacing.

Smell grainy with corn and cooked cabbage. Not very appealing.

Flavor is corn and the same cooked cabbage that was in the smell. Also some grape flavor. The beer is pretty sweet throughout with a tannic bitterness towards the finish.

Glad I got to try a beer from El Salvador but not something I would pick up again.

330ml bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Decidedly clear body, faint pale golden hue with a decent-looking, airy, white head. Minute lacing on the way down.

Smell: A tad sweetish in the nose, some lackluster graininess, a mice-tear worth of uningratiating acetone, and a small serving of chilled creamed corn.

Taste: Mildly grainy with a sweet pop of light corn syrup. Ultra faint herbaceous hops, near nil bitterness, but, then, a trace of chemically astringency that holds firm until the sweetish, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Sometimes you luck out with a simple and innocuously inoffensive pale lager, but, sometimes it's kinda icky, as is the case with Suprema.

Pours into my pilsner glass glass a pale straw color with great clarity and big bubbles. A soapy white cap quickly falls to a broken film. Leaves a fair amount of lace.

There's not a lot going on here. Lightly cooked veggies and not much else. A fizzy super-light body isn't helping. The beer tastes like little more than water mixed with some rice and straw. Bitterness is very, very light and tasteless. Finishes with a metallic flavor and a bit of cooked cabbage.

It's light and flavorless and not much else. A couple of off flavors provided the only interest. This is not a beer worth revisiting.
