2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of daknole. Thanks! Pours a pale straw yellow color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Huge amounts of carbonation cling to the side of the glass. Aroma of corn, hay and light grassy hops. Taste is corn, green apple, grain and grassy hops. Thin-medium bodied. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. Thanks for the geotick, After4ever! Pours pale yellow with a lacy white head. Floral, soft honey aroma with just a hint of cat, sweet bready taste with a floral hop finish. It’s such a relief to get one of these pale lagers that isn’t heinously broken.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. silkscreen bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a foamy white head that fades somewhat hurriedly. Light aroma of grain, cereal, and ever so slight hops. Crisp, clean flavor with a slight sweet malt characteristic. Very easy to drink, but not much else. Fairly typical island lager.

Pours clear yellow into the glass with a fizzy head. Aroma is grain and cereal. Flavor is very light, but actually has a bit of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Very refreshing

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer poured fizzy yellow with a 3-fingered head. The aroma was malty and caramelly with some fairly strong clovey character. The flavor is clean and also has some fairly prominent clove flavors with a malty finish. The palate is fairly light and weak. My biggest impression with this beer was the clove. It is a fairly interesting beer for the style and it is well brewed but I’m not a big fan of the spiciness here.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light aromas of hay for the malt, herbs for the yeast, with hints of white wine, honey and cooked corn. Head is average size, fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear gold. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes slightly sweet. Palate is light, between watery and dry and has a fizzy carbonation. Not bad at all. Refreshing with some good taste.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mom and dad brought back this little offering from the islands. Pours yellow, clear and carbonated! Light head disipates to nothing. Aroma is there, like you would get from a European beer, somewhat musky. Mouthfeel is good, flavor is so so, some malt and hops, not much aftertaste.
Not a favorite, but if I was shipwrecked on Barbados I might drink a bottle or two if there was no rum around!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poures a clear golden with a carbonated white head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Taste is smooth with grass and grain flavor. For a pale lager this isn’t so bad.
