Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Raratonga. Sweetish start followed by a pronounced marmaladey finish. Brandyish flavours inbetween. Unusual and drinkable.

Man, they brew beer everywhere, huh? My brother brought me back a bottle of this brew about 7 years ago. While it's not really noteworthy, it is a decent drinking beer. Who knew the Cook Isles were into brewing?

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle received as part of a Christmas present. Pours yellow/gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt, some appley notes, touches of pepper. Tastes dry with a decent malty character and a peppery finish. Refreshing enough as a summer sipper and light years ahead of the Sol.

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Pale straw colour. Lots of haylike hops in the aroma. Light, fizzy body. Sulphur, straw and haylike flavours with a hint of bitterness. Step above average macro, but that’s it.

Draught at various locations on Rarotonga. Clear golden colour, brief head. Grassy nose, sometimes with some strawberry jam added. Sweet with papery maltiness and pleasantly soft mouthfeel. Low to medium bitterness. While this brewers beers aren’t very adventurous at least they try to sell them with being made from good ingredients and being produced with extra care. A respectable tropical lager.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep golden with a rough, off-white head. Discreet aroma of lightly sweet malt. Medium body, sweet, bready - almost caramelish - notes. Some nuts in there as well. And Scotch?? Subdued bitterness. I believe this has gotten a bit old, but it’s actually still quite drinkable. Reminds me of Newcastle Brown.... Courtesy of Bov. 270207

baraciisch (2729) - California, USA - APR 16, 2011
Only brewery in the Cook Islands, actually walked by the brewery but didn’t go in cuz it looked really desolate... Mundane lager, not very crisp or enjoyable, but drinkable...

Ungstrup (33430) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
A pale orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of brewmash with a hint of oranges, and the flavor is sweet again with primary notes of brewmash, and a touch of citrus. Not that bad.
