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.

The most interesting point about this beer is that the stout and the lager share the same bottle. It’s simply labeled for both on the back. Pours light gold with a nice looking off white head. Odd aroma that conjures up hotdog water. Watery, herbs, toasted malts and some hop for good measure. THX2:jercraigs.

Bottle. Pale yellow with a smallish white head. Funky sort of fruity mushrooming notes in the aroma. Clean, relatively... More flavour than expected. Palate is light but about what you’d expect. Not unpleasant but hardly worth the trip to Belize for. Many thanks Meeeedak for bringing this one back for me ;)

Decent gold colour. Brought in by a tourist, its OK. You could no worse. Dry and light. A bit bitter. Middle of the road. Carbonation does not add to score, maybe makes it more popular. Mild skunk aroma apparently is common. This is as good as it gets, folks, as it was brewed within the last month. Thanks for sharing, jercraigs.

Presentation: Brown recycled bottle with a “Mayan Temple” on the label. Bottle cap is green indicating it is a lager and not a stout (blue). The brew is a yellow/gold color with a respectable amount of effervescence. Nice head that quickly dies. Slippery lace. Light – no strong character, but drinkable without a funky aftertaste. Smell is a little skunky, and somewhat hoppy. A bartender I spoke with said that Belikin is the best beer in Central America. The brewery is said to have hired a German brew meister to perfect their product.

Bottle from a March 2004 trip to Belize (Caye Caulker and San Ignacio). Not as smooth as the premium, but a fine lager nonetheless. Maybe it was Belize or maybe they just make better beers than their neighbors, but I enjoyed drinking beer in this beautiful country.

My girlfriend brought this back from a cruise she went on. Yellow body with a medium white head. Pretty standard stuff here. Aroma is a bit sweet and nicely malted. Some corny notes but this was anticipated. The flavor was much the same as the aroma - malt, hints of corn/corn syrup, and a new hint of fruit. Palate was lighter with some carbonated sharpness. Finish is semisweet with more of the corn notes coming through. Not a great beer, but I’ve much worse when it comes to "pale lagers".

I was highly impressed with this beer. Had it while stopped in Belize City on a cruise and i figured i’d order it since it was the local flavor. Has some bitter spicy taste to it which is much more in the way of taste than i can say about most Latin American beers ive tried.

Had this beer when I was on a cruise that stopped in Belize City. I was impressed with it. The pub I stopped in (The Wet Lizard) had 2 kinds of beer, Belikin or Guinness that was brewed in Belized, the Guinness they have down there is a far cry from good Guinness, but when I ordered a Belikin not knowing what to expect I was surprised. It goes down smoothly and the flavor isn’t bad, for being in Central America I was happy to get a beer that made me feel so close to home.

Bottled. Light golden larger which has, I'm afraid to say, lost something in translation. I've been waiting a year to re-rate this beer and its proved most difficult to obtain. Had numerous bottles of this whilst diving in Belize. A little coastal town called Placencia, at Robert's Grove. Diving three times a day, 50m on air with sharks and turtles. Very narley diving that could have only been spiced up by a wreck or two. This time the beer was a little sharp and dry. Whilst refreshing in a way, the need nor the thirst isn't present tonight here in London. Still, nice to see and old travelling buddy again.
