You can find this beer ANYWHERE in the Bahamas. I just returned from a 10 day trip and let me tell you, this beer gets old fast. It’s better than most mass produced U.S lagers but what isn’t? skip the regular and go straight to the gold which at least has some semblence of a unique flavor.

Pours a clear, yellow color, topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head. Skunky malty aroma, some grainy notes, not much else. Taste starts sweet and grainy, followed by some minimal bitterness and metallic feel in the aftertaste. Typical cheap (below)average lager. Well, new country at least.

Bottle. Clear yellow. Taste like sweet water with light grains, grass, and lemon. I added a lime because it’s awful and it came with it. High carb. Bland. Really bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bierkoning (10791) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle, thanks VipinVelp! Blonde. Grainy vegetable-like aroma and flavor. Some nutty bitterness. Apple, hints of orange. Almost medium bodied. Not good.

Douberd (2890) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2015
(Kalik) Bottle 355 ml clear glass bottle, from vipinvelp, many thanks! New country! Served into a shaker, ABV 5.2% Clear pale yellow colour on the body, small white head that disappears stright away. Lazy activity in the glass. Aroma of malts accompanied by some lemon notes, I think a slice of lime would compliment it quite well. Taste of malts, old apples, light hay. Thin body, high carbonation. One of those lagers that surely taste better in the country of origin.

Not my favorite style of beer, and not my favorite version of this style of beer, BUT... It has a bright super pale yellow color, not much head, very mild malt flavor, not much in the way of hop flavor or bitterness, and no hop aroma. A touch of corn, a touch of sweetness. It’s fine for what it is -- a super light lager meant to drink ICE cold on the beach, as the warm crystal clear Caribbean ocean waters gently wash over your feet, standing in pristine white sand (which is where I had it). I could do that all day long!

Clear yellow, small white foam ring. Not a ice aroma, and also not so good taste. Country tick. (Houston 201501)

Zymurgeist2 (1174) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
At MIA airport doing a run of carribean beers. This is bad. Lots of grassy, cereal grain. Relatively clear pale straw with sustained white head. Taste is rough - grass, grass and grass. Spicy-ish finish. Crisp.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ Tasting ][ ][ Snifter ][ 11.09.14 ]
Transparent gold, large giant white head drops to collar. Stinging grain sweetness, light corn and metal, sweaty adjunct paper. More bitterness up front, light body and syrupy sweetness but controlled grain, light corn, aluminum metallicity hidden until finish.

Bottle, hand carry home by Ajax, dude epic pale lager! Enjoyed in my Bourbon County snifter. This lager just glimmers in the snifter, the light catches it just right. Aroma is light rice and corn. Flavor is not offensive but mainly because it doesn’t taste like anything at all. Thin and watery texture.... Ok, what else can I type here?

Very pale yellow, almost no head. Nose is very weak, cane sugar and some honey-comb.Tastes like every other pale lager. sweet finish, some bitterness and old grain, just not very good.
