1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 Re-Rate July 1 2005. Can. In substantially better shape than the bottle I sampled. Pale yellow, smallish white head. Vegetal corny (?) aroma mixed with grain and muted hops. Similar flavour, little less corn in the flavour. Remind me of a slightly less malty Heineken actually. Meh. Uninspired but I could knock back a few on the beach if given the opportunity. 5/3/5/2/10 <P>
Original Rating Bottle. Courtesy or Mssr. Poirier. Pale macro yellow with a small white head diminishes fast. Bit hops if grainy and or mildly skunky.Touch of bitterness, fairly watery. I also have a can from the Mattecky Honeymoon in the fridge, perhaps it will have fared better on the trip.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The bottle says a Pilsener type beer. What the heck is that? It did have a slight pilsener like aroma and taste, but most it was just sort of average lager. It started poor, seemed to get better toward the middle of the glass, and then finished poor. Go figure. Slightly watery taste, more bitter finish than the average American lager, but still not a great beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Better than I expected, though I wasn’t expecting much. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way trying to find this one.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can courtesy of Pailhead. Pours standard pale lager with a huge white head. Aroma is lots of corn and a touch of hops. Flavor is all corn with a skunk finish. If I was in the Dominican on a sandy beach I’m sure I would score this higher, wouldn’t we all?

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This smells like candy corn with a dash of cotton candy. Yellow with a disappearing head, its carbonation soon vanishes as well. Light mouthfeel, watery, hints of caramel and hops, it’s hard to believe this has a 6% ABV... which is the only thing this beer has going for it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2005 This was a waste. Yellow in color, and huge skink aroma. Light in taste and mouth feel. Little bitter finish, little points. Gave this a shot, will be giving the rest of the sixer away/

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright yellow-gold hue, at the opening of the bottle the skunky swell came out, sweet pale malt, shy floral hops aromas, follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a light sweet malt character and a shy bitterness on the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2004 bottle. A little bit of light rust-gold overtones on a clear yellow body. Small white head with good retention. Aroma of corn flowers, some grass. Flavor has light bread, powdered sugar and cake frosting. Some grassiness as well. A bit skunky on the end, with some slight corn-flavors. Light body, not overcarbonated for the style. I’m impressed that they come out and say that this is made with corn grits on the label. These Latin American pale lagers all taste very similar. I wonder if someone started a recipe a while back and it just gets passed around as each country starts its brewery. Must be.
