Beer #7 in the line-up at The International Night Of Swill. Pale yellow. Aroma is slightly skunky, but not nearly as bad as the Patagonia that preceded it. Flavour starts out OK, with a bit of fruitiness, but turns vegetal and unpleasant in the finish. It frightens me sometimes the crap that I will drink in order to notch another country on RateBeer...

Bottle. The setting in which I tried this beer was the very best thing about it - sitting on the porch of a little restaurant on the bay in Road Town, Tortola with a bowl of conch chowder. Poured yellow, clear and fizzy with a small white head. Fairly typical tropical lager aroma and overly sweet with adjunct flavors and a welcome, crisp hop finish. The label says it’s made with sugar in addition to the malts, hops, yeast and water. Light body and tangy, tingly carbonation. A thirst quencher and that’s about it.

Very similar to Corona - but not quite as good (although it tastes like lime has already been added - so if you’re a Corona w/lime fan, it could save you a step).

pootzboy (1611) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
Poured a pale gold...not much of a cap and it didn’t last...agressive carbonation. Aroma of grains but sweet with some vegital notes. Starts sharp from the aggressive carbonation, goes watery and sweet on the palate with some light citrus then a wet finish with slight bittering. Watery, too sweet and non distinct. I see the ingredients lists sugar as an adjunct component of this beer... this does not belong in a proper lager.

This stuff smelled skunky ( clear bottle). Poured a flat yellow and tasted like a skunk flat yellow. Why import this when I can make it in my basement?

I am stricty neutral with this beer, it is average. nothing spectacular. Average body and aroma.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - APR 3, 2005
Another drinkable but unexciting pale lager. Not horrible and not great. Watery and thin.

Little to no head over a yellow beer. No nose except a bit of honey. Taste is sweet, like kit homebrew. A bit yeasty, and mossy. No finish. Not bad in a open air bar in the USVI thoug.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Extremely pale gold, with a generous, white head that persisted for several minutes. Very fizzy overall. Aroma of skunk and corn. Tasteless at the start, then finishes with a strange chemical, malt liquor-esque bite. Quite a watery brew.
