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.

The Bud Light of Belize but better than Bud Light. Actually has a little taste. Pale golden color with no head or distinct aroma. Not bad but not worth traveling out of your way to grab. Though, can't avoid it in Belize so drink it up when there.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Folks who find themselves in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye will find this to be a very refreshing and flavorful brew for the tropics. (O.K. , you can be on the mainland, but this is a beach beer. Much more than a Corona, yet not quite one of the Mexican German style beers. The bottles are a little over 9 ounces so it stays cold and make great refillables for your bigger homebrews - something between a nip and a 12 oz. If you must have an American style beer while on your stay in Belize, seek out the Belikin "Premium" in the 12 oz bottles. Otherwise go down to the distributor just south of greater downtown San Pedro and pick up a case in your golfcart to take back to the hotel. You'll be drinkin' as the locals do!

Had this in Belize City sitting under a tin shack as the rain came pouring down. More flavorful than most of the Mexican lagers, with a slight sweetness. It serves its purpose just fine.

Not a bad beer! This is the beer of belize and i mean this is the only one! You can find this anywhere in the country for about 3 belizian dollars. Nice taste and smooth. No horrible aftertaste as you would think from seeing where this is brewed. There is nothing better then sitting at the lazy lizard on caye caulker on a warm afternoon with one of these.

One of the only beers you can get in Belize. It has somewhat of a unique flavor, but I would treat this like Corona. Have a Belikin and remember my honeymoon in Belize.

Gift. Thoughtful, but to be honest .... um, wasn’t the least bit impressed. Funky tasting lager. Not sure if it was he trip back, adjuncts or if they really wanted it to be this lack luster.

I had the, uhm, pleasure of drinking this brew while in Belize. I must say, that beer has to be light there in order to be enjoyed to any extent. Belikin is one of the few beers available in Belize; in many places the only beer in Belize besides the occasional Heinekin and Guinness that is brewed in the same brewery as the Belikin beers.
The beer had a slight sweetness that I thought was interesting at first, but found it cloying after a couple of weeks of drinking it. Better than Budweiser, though.
