(Plastic bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, pilsener golden with a whiff of flowers in the aroma. Thin-bodied with a very discreet malt base and basically no bitterness. Typical - but drinkable - holiday swill. 290607

Had this on tap at the brewery. Flavored with sugar cane, hints of molasses with malts on nose. Surprisingly thick, long-lasting head. Flavor is mild, with notes of barley.

Classic small plastic bottles--wonderful. Served nice and cold, too. Completely offensiveless, no flavor--just watery, like Michelob Ultra. Fizzy, happy beach beer. Thanks for a new country!

RBSG 2007: The horror, the horror... Thanks yespr. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma, a bit skunky, grassy. Flavor, skunky, grassy, ugh.

Had this one on draught at the brewery in St. Michael, Barbados. Lagers must save better in the hot climate of the Caribbean but I just canít abide them. Light yellow pour with a medium white head, grassy nose with notes of citrus, mildly bitter with "just a kiss" of the hops. This wasnít terrible.

RBSG 2007. I think I should thank Yespr for this. I know he brought it, Iím just not sure I should thank him at all. Yellow color with no head. Skunky aroma with soiled grains. Gutrot bourbon soaked corn taste. Well, I guess I got a new country out of it, but thatís the only reason Iíd ever drink it.

From tap. Pours pale yellow with a crispy white head. Aroma is slight grassy but also soft malty. Flavour is mild bitterness with a nice minor fruity note just before the finish. Definitely a bit better than other Caribbean pale lagers. In the humid warm weather of Barbados this is a perfect beer.
