330ml bottle (Amsterdam, Helsinki)
Sweet clean plasticky aroma, a bit floral. Gold, tiny head. Simple
sweet fruity retronasals, body similar in taste - a touch hoppy,
flowery and sweet. Crisp, but a bit watery. Some hops in the finish.
Clean, but a bit dull.

A - Clear gold color, a touch less clear than many other beers of the style. Decent sized white, foamy, bubbly head that disappears pretty fast leaving no lace. Pretty typical appearance for the style.
S - A bit thin with sweet malt and a bit of a corn/grain/husk aroma as well. A slight hint of bready malt as well. Nothing all that special about the aroma.
T - Light on taste especially at the beginning of the sip. Some light malt and corn taste provides the base. Mid sip this gets a bit stronger with a bit of breadiness. Also some floral hops come out. Toward the finish the hops are a bit stronger and there is a slight tang to the grain taste. Overall it is fairly sweet, but there is a slight bitterness and tang to it.
M - Light body with a healthy amount of carbonation. A little spritzy and refreshing but a little drying on the finish.
D - Decently drinkable beer. Not too different from others in the style. It has a sweetness and a grainy, malty taste. Not really interesting, but it goes down fairly easy.
Notes: Nothing all that special about this beer. Sweet malt and adjunct make up most of the taste. An ok amount of hops for the style, but they are overshadowed.

Can. Golden color with thin white head. Aroma almost nothing. Taste, very watery. Only one positive thing, that it was brought directly from Cuba.

Not as bad as I expected. Canned sample from MLCC. Tastes liek your typical Macrobrewery, but a bit more flavourful than most. Would liek taste even better on a hot day in Cuba.
