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.

Loose bottle at Binny’s, silkscreened label, dated "22AUG10" Uh-oh. Well, those are the breaks when you want to tick off another 0.4% from the list of contries, or 3 pixels from the map if it returns. At least I bought this along with a 11.11.11 Vertical Epic. So. DMS smell when poured in my glass. Slightly hazy beer, at least the color is a slightly substantial yellow. Just a little residue in the bottom of the bottle. Taste has corn sweetness, and may be just a bit "hot." There is an underlying tone of bitterness that you sometimes don’t get with a cheap lager, so it’s noted here. A little bit estery, maybe due to age or however it’s fermented. I’d drink this if I was in Belize. I also note that the bottle I have more resembles the Belkin Premium bottle in the web site now, but the neck has the word "Beer" instead of "Premium" or "Supreme."

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Light yellow. Pours with a large white head. Very malty nose and a little bitter. Full thick body and malty palate coating consistenty. Pretty balanced... just heavy for a light beer.

Thin, fizzy, a bit skunky and adjunct-y, but just fine everywhere in BZ for $1 US (various)

284mL bottle, thanks to my longtime friend Christy. Clear yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of sour water and straw. Tastes of some metal and a standard Pale Lager. I bet it tastes better down there!

DrSilverworm (6957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2011
12oz bottle, thanks to my uncle George. Pale yellow color, some floaties, minimal head. Interesting musky aroma. Very intentional and refined, it seems. Pickled is the best way I can describe it. I bet this would be awesome with belize-food. Couldn’t imagine drinking a 6 of this, though. I bet it’s all they have in Belize.

Not a bad beer, but it is the only beer widely available in Belize. After a while it gets a bit old drinking the same beer day after day.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
Deep blond color, flat. Breadish aroma. Oxidised flavor, corny, mellow, without bitterness. Real crap.
But thanks Henrik and Saxo for bringing this to København Ølfestival 2010.
