on tap at brewpub. So-so aroma, sweet. Not much really. Had to dig to get something. honey, grainy I’ll call it. Clean golden orange color, small head and minor lacing. Bittersweet flavor. Little lemon grass, little grain. Lite body, lite oily creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Didn’t do much for me, but an ok pils

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 The Caribbean people are very fond of beer, or so the ubiquitous empty bottles lining the streets and beaches leads me to believe. Carib lager is the hegemon here, curing parched throats with its clear, crisp taste. That’s admirable. In Puerto Rico it’s the same. Lots of lagers, cold with water droplets skiing down the bottle, aid the survival of a people beset my nature’s temperamental fever. But for some reason there are those down in those scattered islands that insist on manufacturing beer completely unfit for consumption in hot and humid weather. The brewing process must be a trial in sanity, asking a man or woman to toil over a product that couldn’t possibly be understood in its birthplace. Still, it’s made, which suggests certain breweries are tapping the madhouses for employees. As a result, any unwary tourist will find amongst his sampler glasses a drink most foul and unfitting. For me it was the Old Harbor Santo Viejo Pilsener. It looks like a richer pale lager, and effuses with a smell of corn. The privation of flavor leaves a reeking skunkiness. On the plus side, it’s still a crisp beer. Back on the negative side, that makes for crispy skunk. No, I don’t think this beer fits in at all, or really any pilsener anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon line for that matter. It’s just not a good idea.

Gold body, with not much of a head to speak of. Aroma is 2 row, light crystal malts, along with the corn water. Taste is crisp, has some pineapple, along with the pale malts that accompany it.

Very refreshing and "just right" bitterness. Quickly becoming my favorite at OHB. Semi murky golden color, nice small head.

Dark golden color with a small white head. Light floral aroma and flavor. Mild caramel maltiness. Finishes with a light bitterness. Lively mouthfeel.
