275ml bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a crystal clear dark straw color with a decent sized white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of sweet honey like malt with a touch of carmelization, a hint of floral hop and a touch of minerals. The flavor is fairly sweet with a light sugary or honey like flavor with a touch of non descript fruitiness in it. Very faint earthy hop flavor and virtually no hop bitterness. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. nothing horrible about this beer, but I wouldn’t seek this out again unless I was on the island of origin

Very soft beer typical for what it is, a caribbean island beer really refreshing when drank cold.

Yellow in a clear bottle. Taste is sweet corn malt and light grassy hops. Ok in the Caribbean but wouldn't touch it if I wasn't in the element. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Litt søtlig duft av humle. Klar lys gyllen farge. Noe skum som forsvinner raskt. Noe søtlig smak.

MarkoNm (230) - SLOVENIA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours with a very pale yellow color, completely clear, and with a decent although not lasting head. There’s not much to the smell, just some hops, sweet in character. The taste starts with a minimal sweetness and is followed by a very mild hoppy bitterness. A nice combination of bitter-sweet. Although not much to the taste, it’s a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. What I call, a perfect beach beer.

Pale yellow, full bodied, sweet, with a hint of bitterness. Look, take it for what it is, a pale lager, good on a hot day, better than most.

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
pale golden in the bottle. The beer has much more flavour than expected. The beer starts quite full-bodied, a bit grainy. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is slightly grainy, a bit sweet. In the end there is even hint of hops! Not too much, but the aftertaste is long, slightly sweet-malty and grainy and nicely bitter!
--> for a caribbean lager not bad! Very thirst-quenching without being really watery! --> 7/12/8/8
