Pilsener 100 (Centenario) of El Salvador has a rather thin, white head and a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with little white specks floating about and minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, sugary barley malt and clean water. Taste is of sweet barley malt, a touch of hops in the background, slight sourness, and biscuit. Mouthfeel is mostly light and a bit slick, and Pilsener 100 finishes crisp, clean, semi-dry, refreshing, and exceptionally drinkable. Overall, this is a most excellent beer, and I recommend trying this rarity.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a straw yellow with a good fingers worth of head that dissipated very quickly, leaving no lacing. Had lots of visible carbonation from start to finish.

S: Lots of grain and a little corny.

T: I'm getting the corniness right up front with a very light spicy hops that disappears very quickly. The finish has a little lemon zing in it.

M: Light crisp with good carbonation. Fits the mex style.

D: If you like Mex Light beers it is right up you alley, just not my style.... Really not getting any Pilsener here at all.

Yep, I bought it because it's from a far away place - El Salvador - from which I'd never had a drink. Poured a massive 3" white soap suds head which faded quickly and exhausted most of the effervescence from the body. Typical clear straw yellow lager color. Smells very mildly of corn. Very mild slightly sweet corn water taste. It's like a slightly weaker version of a mainstream BMC.

12oz bottle poured into a Duvel snifter. No date.

Appearance - A vigorous pour delivers a one finger white head with good lacing and decent to low retention. Clear pale gold body with some visible floaters.

Smell - Wet dog. Cardboard. Hidden alcohol underneath it all. Stale sweetness.

Taste - Stale. Tobacco. Dry cardboard. One of the driest pilsners I've had (though BA describes it as a Light Lager).

Mouthfeel - Mild astringency. Light bodied, but the head offers some frothiness. Dry.

Overall Drinkability - Not bad but almost getting to be. This is definitely a beer that requires either an acquired or preferred taste. I don't imagine the average beer advocate would enjoy this one.

Color is very light straw. Head came and went very quick. Smell is typical cereal grain lawn mowing beer. Taste is better than I thought based on the smell and my preconceptions, in that it is fresh and doesn't have that fake corn sweetness that most "premium" imports have. I want to say that this actually has some malt in it. For a Light Lager the finish is great. Also, I see no real flaws for the style. I'll probably get this again when the weather gets warmer to quench a summer thirst after some hard outdoor work.

A: Light straw yellow with a cloudy white head when poured quickly.

S: Clean, with corn and fresh barley. Some fresh pine and grass.

T: Corn, minty herbs, and a kind of bell pepper note. Clean with mild sweetness. Light flavored as expected from a pils.

M: Refreshing and light. The minty flavor makes it cooling to the mouth.

O: A pretty good pilsner! Suprised me a little, so it gets a bonus here.

Crystal clear and bright yellow in colour topped by a thin skim of fine, white bubbles. A thick collar left a bit of sticky lace on the glass. Sweet, malty aroma, cereal grains, slightly bready/yeasty, with perhaps a hint of hops. Thin flavour. Very low bitterness left musty malt sweetness unbalanced. It had a slightly spicy edge towards the end, but the flavour disappeared in the finish leaving it tasting watery. Light bodied with moderate carbonation, fairly dry. Inoffensive, but quite bland.

Part of a Beers of the World pack from Cost Plus World Market.

Pours a clear light yellow with a 1 inch fizzy head that fades to a film. Foamy rings of lace stick to the sides of the glass on the drink down. Smell is pretty subdued but I do get some grain aromas but that is pretty much it. Taste is of grains and some corn flakes. A light fruity flavor is apparent too. An average level of carbonation makes for a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average lager and my first beer from El Salvador. I am not too sure that this is a light beer as listed however.
