2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle on the balcony, 21/12/11. Aroma of cream and pine needles- really. Pours with a whipped, retreating head leaving dabs of lace. Highly papery, nibbled pine and raffia taste without obvious adjuncts. Some sliminess in the mouth; biscuit for dessert. I don’t like it but it does have that piney, gnawed pencil-like noble hop note, which is something.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
New country tick! 12/21/11. 280mL bottle thanks to Jon! Slightly cloudy very light golden pour with basically no head. Enormously skunky aroma with undertones of caramel and corn chips. Sweet burnt caramel flavor with fusel alcohols, bready grains, green apples, and puke. Man, this is awful.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
280mL green bottle, “birthday apr23 2010”. I had a few of these during my honeymoon in Petit St Vincent in June 2010.
Pours straw yellow, topped with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of grain, straw and other adjuncts. Flavor is grainy as well, with a pretty nondescript, unoffensive effect on the palate. It did seem a bit “skunky”. Finishes fairly dry, with mild hops come through at the end. Thin body with pretty active carbonation. It‘s refreshing enough, so I guess it achieves it‘s goal. Other than Heineken this was the only beer available, so I moved on to tropical drinks…

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. Poured clear straw coloured with a thin white head. The aroma is metallic and musty corn. Light body, smooth palate. Bready malt flavour, light and grainy. I suggest you drink it out of the bottle so you can’t smell.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Tastes like lemon, lime soda. Not even like Sprite, more like the generic store brand stuff. Not horrible either for what it is.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Have to thank puzzl for a new country! Pale yellow, near no color on the pour. The aroma is straight skunk and a touch of cheap pale malt. Watery, papery with a skunked hop finish. A typical Caribbean Pale Lager. I’ve had worse.
