Speaking of Malt Beverages....

Not sure if this is the right place for this or not, but I had a malt beverage in Costa Rica that was...interesting. I bought it thinking it was beer, or at least alcoholic, but it was just a syrupy-sweet, non-alcoholic concoction of malt and hops. It tasted like unfermented wort. Tried the whole two weeks to think of something to make it palatable - various mixers, lemon, whatever - but its hypersaccharinity, to coin a word, overwhelmed everything. Anybody ever try anything like this, or know anything about it? Sorry, I forgot the name, but it was made by the brewery that makes the two locally-brewed beers in Costa Rica, the one in the white can and the one in the yellow can that both taste the same (kinda like Bud).
