Just bad. This brewery also makes a beer called Skol which (though also bad) is far superior. Stick to that if you absolutely HAVE to try beers from this brewery.

Presentation: It was poured from a clear 11.16oz or 330ml bottle into a dimpled mug. The label lists the abv at 5.2%. Appearance: The body is a very light straw yellow color with very good clarity. From an aggressive pour down the center of the glass I got a tall fizzy white head. This light fizzy head fizzled out quickly leaving only a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Smell: As soon as I opened this beer it hit me right away with bright floral and grassy hops that also bring a hit of skunk as well. Taste / Palate: There is not much going on here, as is normal for the style. Its a basic light bodied Lager with light rice cereal like malts and floral/grassy/greenhouse like hops. The palate is light, crisp and it finishes surprising clean.

Light gold color. Thin head. Refreshing with a lemon wedge. Not as bad as i was expecting it to be. Decent lager.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1921) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from Granada courtesy of my buddy. 275ml bottle, light straw gold with a foamy white head. Rough grainy sweet light malt aroma a touch sugary. A rough medium body-mouthfeel.  Overall middle of the road but not too bad, rough but drinkable.

Another beer brought back from my brother. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a glossed over yellow color with a slight transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising. There was a quickly dissipating bubbly white head and barely any lacing. The aroma smelled almost exactly like the stag lager I had: light cereal/graininess with a light lemon. The taste was mainly sweet with a fairly clean crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat exceptionally light and poundable. Overall, beach beer, I wouldn’t have this where I currently live but if I ever found my way down there, I could see myself drinking this over that stag lager despite it smelling the same.

Sweet, flat, yellow and oily. What more to say? Oh yes, it looks like heavily diluted cordial.

Not as bad as expected. Not too sweet, quite aromatic, no artificial aromas. Impressive would be something else but it is easy to drink.

ciaranc (847) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 28, 2014
330 ml bottle from Grand Pineapple, Antigua. Yellow and fizzy, no head. Corn and light malt on the nose. Flavour is unpleasant, corn again, way too sweet, no bitterness at all totally unbalanced. Has a syrupy mouthfeel. A bit fizzy, short finish. At least it had no cardboard or skunk notes. Pretty terrible.
