Bottle(s) in Nassau. Classic Bahamian beer. Little taste. Little of anything . . . but awfully good with an order of conch fritters under the bridge at Potters Cay. Love the one you’re with; Drink the beers you have in front of you . . .

Given to me by Maxbier. Didn’t bother pouring into glass, drank from the clear bottle. Color is yellow with some white foam. Light malt and skunky aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same. It’s an island beer. I could drink a lot of these if I was on an island but standing in 2 feet of snow is a different story.

Rated from old notes. A light bodied lager, one dimensional, lacking any nuance, or, for that matter, real taste. Decent with food. Since you’re in the Bahamas (who would import this) try it with some spicy jerked conch. The bottled version is better than the canned.

labeerinthum (311) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 17, 2015
Bottiglia. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il gusto al naso è di malto. Il cappello di schiuma ha scarsa tenuta, con bollicine medie. La carbonazione del liquido ha poche bollicine, quasi piatta. L’aspetto è limpido. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è medio. Il dolce è medio a bilanciare l’amaro medio e l’aspro leggero. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il finale è astringente e semplice. Il retrogusto è veloce. L’aroma ricorda frumento, fieno e cereali.

BillWyce (916) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Pours clear golden color, with a 2-finger white head. Grainy, grassy aroma. Maybe a little yeast. Body is light and mild, but I didn’t find it watery. Lightly dry finish. Flavor of corn mixed with a grassy note.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA., The beer is has a light golden color with a small white head. The aroma was really skunky and it followed through to the taste. This may have been a shipping issue but it was not a good beer for me. I will not try this again.

Bottle - medium yellow with a small head. Has some bite to it on first taste. Lots of corn and grain and metallic on the back end. An ok beer for the Bahamas.

Cunningham (6263) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2015
Clear golden color with a fine lasting white head. Ok lacing on the glass. So far so good. Grainy and herbal hoppy aroma. Not that bad for a pale lager. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Grainy, malty and herbal hoppy flavor. Actually not that bad for this kind of beverage.

Not a bad beer, just not a good beer. It’s a refreshing beer to enjoy in hot weather like say, the Bahamas. Would get again, if I was in the Bahamas.
