Idiosynkrasie (3942) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, barely lacing, white head. Strawy aroma, grainy, a touch of lemon, wet straw. Taste is moderately sweet pale malty, a touch of wet straw, a very cautious touch of lemon. Not as crappy as suspected.

Bottle from Carolina Ale House. Clear yellow pour. Stale aroma. More of a pilsner taste than lager. Not good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

St. Barth Beer No. 7. Really just needed a beer to wash down some salty tapas. Perrier would have done better.

cmacklin (297) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear light yellow with small, short lasting white head. Light malt aroma with some hops. Flavor is light sweet, grain and mild bitter finish. Watery texture and mild carbonation. Boring but thirst quenching in the Caribbean heat.

RRistow12 (269) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle in St Martin. Pours a pale clear yellow with white head. Not much aroma. Grass, perfume, hay smells. Taste is mild biscuit and caramel. No bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Light bodied. Not the worst pale lager but definitely not the best either. Basically a thirst quencher good for laying in the sun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Psytron (1346) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Smell of starch and rubber. Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, sugar. Medium sweet. medium carbon. N7t as bad as expected, rather balanced basic lager.

Had it straight off a 330ml bottle brought by a friend. Not a great beer to look at, With a dirty yellow, dark straw color. Not over carbonated, who I liked. Smells sweet. Not really malty. Same with the taste. Just plain sweet. Couldn't discern any malt character, and hops were sort of non existent. Have been told it's the highest selling beer in Trinidad and it might just work at the beach in between suspicious rum punches. But I don't think I'll buy it again.

Iphonephan (3403) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours clear with an off white head. Pale biscuit nose with some corn flavors. Soft carbonation. Run of the mill caribbean lager.

Mr_Pink_152 (867) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
330ml bottle from beers of Europe. This might be great on a sunny beach. But light and tasteless on a cool spring evening.

Hanoi (425) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Nose is cereal, sweat, slight metal; bleurch. Looks infected. Taste is cereal, a little honey, sweet faint herbal note in the finish. Very inoffensive.
