Central America has a budding microbrew industry with a handful of breweries and limited distribution. They tend to produce pale ales, red ales, and ale-like stouts. I’ve tried a few breweries but they all tasted rather similar. If you want to try this band of beers, I’d recommend sticking with the pale ales. They’re consistently good and a bit more robust than the typical Bud Light style national beers that each country has. Red ales like this Portena aren’t my favorite. The metallic flavor of the bottle cap overpowers the taste of the beer but even in a glass, you aren’t missing much. Also, Sara tried the stout but when pouring it out, you can see that it’s pretty weak. You shouldn’t be able to see through a stout. The beer had a hollow flavor to match. I’d give these microbreweries a few years to develop but you do get a higher alcohol percentage out of these beers! 10/10 it’s beer!
