TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 47. This draft brew was enjoyed at our condo in Cocoa Beach Florida. This clear glass bottled brew poured a large head of white colored foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent orange yellow colored body and a fair lace. It had a skunky aroma and a smooth slightly tingly mouthfeel. It looked like a Cave Creek Chili Beer without the chili! Its flavoe was thin, uni-dimensional and contained only mild hops. It certainly smlled worse that it tasted!

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2003
Bottled: Pale yellow coloured. Medium white head. Malt, sweet and somewhat fruity aroma. Malty and sweet flavour. Very light bitterness in the end. IMO a uninteresting beer.

Bottle. Golden color with a laced white head. A sweet fruity citrus aroma at first with some cereal at the finish. I didn't get the skunk. A mildly refreshing flavor. Thanks to mabdoney for sending this to me and brining me up to 74 different countries.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly skunked. Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.

Typical caribbeam offering,. Refreshing and boring. Good cold. Maby people comment on the skunky taste. People I know in T&T state that the skunk is due to poor storage conditions of the retailer and the brewery but if you get a skunk beer, the retailers will change the wole case for a new one.

Had this bottled in Marigot, Saint Martin. This tasted most like a bad copy of MGD. Pretty full bodied, weak head, slightly hoppy, modestly refreshing on a ninety-degree day in the Caribbean.

Blah blah blah. The west indies should never make beer...ever. Tastes like disgusting water.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2003
One of the worst, no correction, the worst aroma I have ever had the misfortune of experiencing. Saturate the compost heap with vinegar. Oh god, now I have to taste it. Ughhh...arrghh....cue the bucket, I gotta puke! Blahhh...Blahhh...I missed the bowl, there's chunks on the wall...

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2003
Clear gold. Big starting head. Lasting layer of foam and lacing. Light sweet aroma and taste that I swear reminds me of a turkey dinner. Cooked vegatbles, stuffing and gravy included. Very weird and distracting in a beer. Kind of a foamy mouth feel. Little else to speak of.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Straw yellow. Fizzy white head. Aroma of cooked corn & skunk. Watery feel. Flavour of cooked corn & cardboard. Awful.
