My rating is suspect because the bottle I got was in Oregon and Im not sure it was perfectly fresh (and damn those clear bottles!). Ive had beers like this under tropical sun that were like droplets of nectar. But an old bottle under cloudy NW skies is something else altogether. I say go to Trinidad and try it--either way youll be happy.

DocJitsu (1156) - Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Crystal clear golden pour with a white head. Corn and vegetal nose. Thin, slightly oily, and crisp. Faint flavor. Somewhat refreshing, but, otherwise, no fun.

Martinus (3522) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Clear golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, weed, skunky hops. Light hoppy finish, weed.
(from 33cL bottle @ Tims country ticks and pulled pork sandwiches tasting. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck!)

ElManana (898) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
Bottle at tderoeck. All corn, some wheat, even weed-smell, yeasty. Not the worst effort.

ChtiBreizh (62) - Rennes, FRANCE - APR 17, 2015
An OK lager under the West Indies sun. There are not many options there by the way. Presidente?

Stuu666 (5647) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden, nose is dull toffee, grassy, taste is pretty much the same, a little sweetness.

TXBadger (1764) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a clear yellow gold with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Sweet finish.

Sibarh (149) - Białystok, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Kolor - żłto-złocisty, klarowny. Piana - drobniutka, średnio wysoka, nie trwała. Zapach - słodowo-chmielowo-owocowy, lekko sztuczny. Smak - średni słd, spory chmiel, lekkie nuty cytrynowo-kwaskowate, lekka słodycz, lekka goryczka. Tylko do gaszenia pragnienia.

Berard (417) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with thin white head that clings to the edges. Unremarkable lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorgeLee (1353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle by the beach on St Croix. A yellow beer, served with a lime. Thin, sweetish, cold, wet, mostly inoffensive and extremely forgettable.

Holmen2 (1580) - NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
From bottle 31.12.15. Transparently pale golden. Initially foamy, but diminishing white head. Sweet aroma with succade, grass and flowerfields. Similarly sweet taste. Very low bitterness. Artificial sweetner in aftertaste.
