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 Binnyís, 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 donít get with a cheap lager, so itís noted here. A little bit estery, maybe due to age or however itís fermented. Iíd 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."

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

Straw color with a ecru infused off-white bead. Grain, hops, and grass dominate the nose. A molasses based cattle feed come to mind. Grain and glue flavors. Hints of herbal to floral hops. Really nothing to grab hold of and laud. Just a lager. 2/10

This was pretty bad. Was kind of funky in the taste department, and Iím sure if I had it at the brewery, it would taste a lot better.

Butelka, wypite w Belize. Kolor słomkowy, piana nikła, lekkie nuty chmielowe w tle, alkohol wyczuwalny,dobrze nagazowane. Powyżej średniej z regionu Mezoameryki.

Drunk in orange walk on a backpacking trip most beers taste OK in the steamy heat of Belize pours light gold and tastes pretty bland but a good trust quencher they do a belkien stout which was a lot nicer offering.

Yay country ticks... And thanks after4ever for sharing! Pours a dark golden color with almost no head on it. Nose has corn notes to it, but generally smells old and awful. Taste is slightly sweet with grains throughout, and is nothing youíd want to drink regularly.

Pours a clear golden with a quickly disappearing head. Nose is pale malts and some yeastiness. The flavor is light breadiness and malt sweetness with a light long lingering stale bitterness. Not very good but still refreshing on a hot tropical day at the beach!

330. Thanks, B! I mean, thanks for the country. Not so sure Iím grateful for the drinking experience. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with cloudy edges. Scant filmy white head. Smells breathtakingly bad, though not greatly different from most other corn adjunct lagers. Smells like cheap corn that got heated up and then fermented--i.e., like warmed-over 6-month-old garbage. Vegetal and putrid. Fizzy, watery mid palate. Canned artichokes, rotten cabbage, and corn nuts on the mid palate. Chemically finish. Blecch.
