Cunningham (5261) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
Clear pale golden with a bubbly head that soon vanish completely. Not even a thin white layer. Not to bad aroma. Tad sweet caramel malty and mild grainy. Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Flavor….hmmm yeah there are some. Absolutely not the worst around. Mild sweet caramel malty, mild herbal hoppy and some fruity notes. No vegetables! Yes. Not any fancy stuff this. But lager rarely are. Not skunky and full of cooked vegetables as many others of its kind. Looks really bad, but quite drinkable on a hot sunny day.

Bottle from the sister. Pours a clean lemon yellow. Almost no head. Bread, mild lemon, paper and light skunk on nose. Light body. High carbonation. Corn and honey interspersed with some actual grain flavors. Focus, and you even find some faint grassy hops with a lemon affect. Finishes sweet. Aspartame mouthfeel. Not horrible. In fact, apart from the chemical mouthfeel, drinkable.

Bork (411) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Watery lager with unpleasant skunky, perfumed hops and a long, tart finish and aftertaste reminiscent of unwashed socks. The perfect evidence that no matter how awful your beer is, there is a medal out there for you to win.

Foxbush (1444) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
12 oz bottles This was the beer drink in Haiti. The pale lager has a thin, white head with a straw-like appearance. The aroma is faint of sweet malt.. The taste of this beer was refreshing after spending the whole day in the dusty humid heat of Haiti. The flavors mostly of barley malt, and grains. There is some hop bitterness. The medium body lager had average carbonation. The lager again finished with a refreshing crisp taste.

SHIG (3851) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to my Father-in-Law: Poured a cloudy super carbonated bubbling yellow to golden with a bubbly white head. The aroma is a blast of skunkcock right in the nasal, some sour grain. Taste is not as bad as I expected sweet grass a little watery and grain.

Atlanta, Ga. - Total Wines - Perimeter - stubby 12 oz bottle (methinks the Red Stripe bottles had something to do with this). Medium gold pour, slight just off-white head that hangs around for a minute or two. Aroma has some ashtray accents, a touch of spent grain, some wet paper bag. Flavor is somewhat bland, but not altogether foul tasting or drainpour worthy. Pick up some spent grainy notes, a brief mention of corn and some trailing honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is actually smooth and creamy for a tropical lager. Add another country to the pile - Haiti - and honestly the only reason I bought this.

Many thanks for this bottle to Erzengel. Golden colour with a formation of a white and moderate duration head. Aroma is grassy and slightly malty. Watery.

Prestige is your typical Caribbean-style lager. It’s light-bodied and very light on flavor. It does have a crisp and refreshing quality to it. It kind of needs to be that way since the weather in Haiti is basically 90 degrees, hot and humid every single day. This is one of those beers that you have to try just because you’re traveling and can’t get it in your home country.

12 fl.oz.
Pale in the glass with a very bready smell. The beer starts grainy, watery and slightly sweet. This sweetish-strange aroma continues to the mainpart, where it is pushy with a intense grainy-bready background. The aftertaste is long, sweetish-grainy, pushy. I don’t like it very much… --> 3/10/2/3

Couleur paille avec un léger col blanc. Nez de céréales sucré. En bouche une lager comme les autres un peu plus sucré... Rien a dire de plus sur cette bière... Très ordinaire!
