COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belikin Beer is brewed in the classic continental European lager style. Belikin uses Canadian Pilsner malt in combination with a blend of German hops to create the perfect malt-hop balance for our flagship. Since December 13, 1971 the original recipe has called for a lengthy fermentation and lagering to allow the yeast to create its full conditioning. This full-bodied beer with a medium golden colour is delightful any time of the day.

"a decent (ie-not horrible) palate, with minimal offensiveness. A little corn/cereal sweetness, a hint of grass, and not a whole lot else. Not bad for a pale lager, but not exactly good either."

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Travlr at the DC Summer Saison & Sour Tasting, 7/12/14. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of honey and meaty notes. The taste is tart fruits, non-descript malts. Thin bodied. Fairly poor.

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
[My bottle (284ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a slightly hazy, very pale yellow-gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma and flavour are papery, vegetal and grassy. Light bodied. Not as offensive as the beer from Guatamela we just had but still not very good.

olliejobbins (911) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
284ml bottles and on draft a couple of times in Belize. Very clear golden colour with thin head. Aroma is of weak hops and grass. Taste....well there isnít much there unsurprisingly. Just very watery with weak grassy Malta. As others have said, good enough on the beach but not one to have at home!

Canadian pilsner malt represent. Had many a bottle of this before I realized that Barrel rum was a definite superior choice on Caye Caulker. Nonetheless Central America had many worse, and Belikan was good enough at Lounge Lizard bar by the rift. Thanks for reminding me of this beer, Travlr.

Bottle courtesy of Melissa and friends, thank you all! Slightly hazy yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of malty straw, subtle white pepper. Taste is plain straw, slight bitterness at the finish. Inoffensive.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is cereal and meal malt with corn and vegetal notes. Flavor is sweet malt, faint hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

GreatDane1632 (582) - USA - JUL 1, 2014
My sister brought me back the National Beer of Belize from a cruise she went on. Bottle poured into a glass. Brilliantly clear straw colored beer with very quickly dissipating white foam. Semi-active carbonation with bubbles rising from bottom to top. Aroma is Pilsner malt and corn sweetness, small yeast phenols. Flavor is refreshing, crisp, hint of sweet. Itís probably because Iím still cooling down from a workout, but this beer is extremely refreshing. Would drink oodles of this in the summer in the sun if it was available (and nothing better was around) and I would be very happy.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, short lived off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt and straw. Flavour is sweet with malt and grassy notes leading to a dry bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Not good, but this is about your only choice in Belize.

Better than expected, but then again I had just climbed 1500 year old pyramids and was in a good mood. Better than Miller and Bud by a mile, if that gets you going. It is actually drinkable and is your only choice most places in Belize, so donít worry about it!
