500ml can. Golden pour, strange suspeneded particles of god-knows-what. Head comes on strong - white, creamy, lacy, then collapses into a thin film. Sweet malt aroma. taste - sourish malt, soapy notes, some sugar. if it tastes this bad from a can, I’d hate to have one from a clear bottle. Stop the madness.

Not as bad as expected. Light hop aroma. Corny flavor, some sweetness, light sourly, light lemonade flavor. Some bitterness in the end.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Pale golden, thick white head. Pure skunkiness out of the bottle. Aroma of paint and vinyl siding over thin pale malt. Flavour is thin and chemically. A bit of apple. Shitty.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Can. Pale gold, white head, at the end of the glass there was some sediment and I don’t know what to make out of that. Sweet aroma, good ol’ corn. Mild flavor, sweet, some corn again, woo hoo. Firmer mouthfeel than expected. Not horrible, but not good.

This one poured a pale yellow with a high white head and a slightly skunky aroma (thank you, clear bottle!). There’s some graininess to the taste, and I suspect that this would be an okay "lawnmower beer", but it’s pretty much just another boring Latin American lager (in that milleu, I’d rather have a Caguama).

caesar (5296) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2005
Clear yellow color, short white head, hardly any carbonation. Aroma of grain, some hops. Quite weak and watery taste, bit grainy. Not too good, but on a sunny day in Trinidad & Tobago probably one of the better drinks.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2005
Aroma of grains, sweetness/raisins/grapes. Quite artificial. Yellow coloured with a short, white head. Taste is watery, grainy and sweetened. Not too good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2005
Bottle. Pretty run of the mill tropical lager. Corny malt sweetness, lightly fizzy, watery mourhfeel, with a touch of grassy hop. Pretty easy to drink. Would probably go down in tropical temperatures (not when its 4 degrees outside as it is here in London). Once again, thanks to Nina and Chris for this.

Raised in the tropics I guess I am a sucker for the central south american skunky lager taste you get from this type of brew. This beer was more full bodied than the average island beer and quite refreshing.

While in St Thomas I tasted some of the lager options available. This is a lager that is served in most bars on the island. It has a frothy head and straw like color. The taste is simple ,yet refreshing. Not much of a beverage when you consider the other beers in the world. It reminded me of some Mexican beers.
