Beer is not really the first think one imagines when someone mentiones Colombia. At least I haven’t heard about Colombian beer before a friend of a friend brought it back from this South American country, where Cerveza Águila is the no. 1 beer in the country.

Cerveza Águila, or in English Eagle Beer, is a pleasant and refreshing treat from Colombia’s capital, although you’re not getting something you haven’t tasted before. It pours out with a straw gold color, and is topped with a quite small head. There is not much to say about the smell, because it is almost completely neutral with only a faint smell of grains (corn). The taste of this watery beer is very light and non-distinctive. It starts on the sweet side, with the slightest addition of grains. The aftertaste is only slightly bitter, which makes this beer, together with very decent carbonation, a very easy drinking beer. For a greater enjoyment of this beer, take a trip to Colombia and enjoy it high in the Andes.
