2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2008 Solid, malty Europils aroma. Cool painted label, brown bottle, clear yellow brew, finely beaded white head. Flavor is exactly what the aroma suggests - malty, clean lager without much pretense. No adjuncts detectable. Finishes out with a grass-malt sweetness. Solid, for its class. I could ingest one or two on a cruise ship or a nice beach in hurricane territory.

Clear piss yellow from lithy. Sweet light diacytal aroma. Vanilla grain flavor. Not bad. I’d drink this again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear light gold with a somewhat fizzy moderate white head that completely disappeared after two sips and left a few strings of lace on the glass. Aroma is mostly corn with a few whisps of grassy hops. The flavor has less of the corn than the aroma suggests along with some malt. Some decent hops bitterness at the finish. Overcarbonated and prickly on the tongue. An interesting find on vacation, but that’s pretty much where the interest ends.

Jacksonville, Fl. - Total Wines - 12 oz painted bottle. Dark golden pour with a puffy white head. Solid wort-like aroma. Somewhat heavy flavor with some caramel accents and some sweet biscuit like maltiness. Tastes kind of like a malta. Thick enough mouthfeel. Better than expected.

Pours clear golden with white head.
roma is malty.
Taste, just the typical caribbean lager, plenty of malts, some grains. Little touch of sugar (possibly cane), clean dry finish. Refreshing. Nothing special.

The aroma has incense, hay, grass, and some corn. The appearance is pale gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s consumable with minimum funk but still not one I want again.

A gift from Mike & Melissa. Pours a crystal clear medium golden color. A small, fizzy, off-white head disappears quickly, leaving minimal, spotty lacing behind. The aroma is that of a typical Caribbean lager, primarily sweet, corny malts, dry cereal grains, and faint floral hops. Flavors are more of the same, though I swear I pick up a hint of coconut water amongst the corn malts and lightly peppery floral hops. Thin body, moderate carbonation. No better or worse than a typical American macro pale lager.
