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."

Bottle, brought back for me by Trevor-- thanks! Medium gold, rapidly fading head. Phenolic grainy mess, medicinal and watery, a touch of scorched rubber. So bad

Bov (11457) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2016
courtesy of Lukas Flückiger - pale clear golden beer with a poor head retention; aroma of straw and grain; medium-bodied, fairly tasty, lively and quite bitter; long grainy, malty finish with some spicy hops - not bad at all

A sunny beer in a bottle returned from Belize by Coldbrewky. Thanks for the global reach. Corn yellow in the glass. Faint white head disappears immediately. Definitely best suited for consuming mass quantities in the hot Caribbean sun to stay "hydrated".

I have had the Belikin experience on multiple trips to Belize. While it is a good beer to have with dinner after a hot day of work it would not be my first choice for a "daily drinker". Its a bit skunky, earthy smelling, it does have a nice golden, clear look about it. Its a bit frothy with a light sweetness in the beginning and a medium bitterness at the end. Just a touch lightly sour, medium body beer.

goozen (3680) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2015
Bottle 0,284ltr: Very golden clear colored brew with an slightly dry bitter taste with some sweetness. Very good brew if you in Belize, but i drink this in an crappy weather in the Netherlands.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Thats one dark Pale Lager.   Deep brown, thin sudsy khaki head, little lacing.   Bready on the nose and on the tongue.   Thankfully not grainy.   Comes across as a bit of a Schwarzbier or Dunkel Lager actually.   Not as roasty as a Schwarzbier, but has the color.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish.   A bit boring and simple, malty, a little bready, but it wasn’t bad.

um, yeah. very non-descript. slight aroma of malt and hops. Flavor has even less character of malt and hops...almost not there. Maybe it’s better fresh locally.

Aroma has a classic yeasty pilsener malt feel to it. Flavor is satisfying in a beach/Caribbean atmosphere but outside of that is nothing special but all the same, one of the better Caribbean offerings I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
