1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#47).
Light yellow beer with a small head. Both aroma and flavor is extremely thin, some malt and hops and that’s it. Maybe a little sweeter than the average lager. Extremely bland and extremely boring.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours yellow with a tall fizzy white head. The clear bottle obviously doomed this beer as it is VERY skunky and musty. Some sweet corn notes are all that I can detect through the skunkiness. Taste is sweet and not much else. Sort of like wet corn flakes. Nothing else about it to say. Bland finish and slightly carbonated mouthfeel. It’s the poster boy for this tropical style beer. Bad stuff!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
In a six week trip to the Caribbean, this beer was everywhere. It’s home is in Trinidad, but it is also brewed in St Kitts and Grenada. The best I can say for it is that it is fit for the purpose intended. That is, chill it to within an inch of freezing and pour down your neck as fast as possible to slake a thirst whilst on location. Once it starts to warm the corny aroma, sweetish finish and almost complete absence of hop presence starts to become apparent. OK in the right circumstances, but otherwise avoid. The tinned version is particularly nasty if it isn’t ice cold.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refreshing? I guess. Decent aroma but a very pale yellow. Fairly thin flavour - smooth, but none of the rich flavour promised by the aroma ever emerges. If I’m ever on a beach again on a hot day, I’ll drink this again. Otherwise, there’s no real reason to.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I spent a day on the beach on St. Marten, and they were selling these for a buck a bottle. Maybe it's just because I now associate this beer with relaxing on the beach, but I enjoyed it. It was nice and refreshing to down as I was lying under the hot carribean sun. Very similar to Corona...I found there to be a slight citrus twang. Nothing to write home about, but worth trying if you ever see it.

Nothing to this lager. Does not taste bad but, but doesn't taste too good either. Bland and watery. Finishes clean, crisp, and thin.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Stinky lager with a sweet finish. Nothing much to say about it except if you're in the Carribean and want to blend in drink it... else stick to the hard stuff

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light pale gold. Thin white head. No nose to speak of. Citric notes and cider qualities. Soapy perfumes. Dull sparkling lager. Was unable to finish it without help, from the DRAAAAAAAIN!
