Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops with notes of yeast, malt and alcohol. Mild flavour of yeast and hops with grainy notes. Mildly bitter finish with a subtle note of skunk. Boring.

Considering it’s the only beer you can find in Haiti, it could be worse. Thailand has a bunch of beers and they are all worse. A slightly skunky lager that goes well with hot weather and hanging around a Port-au-Prince cemetery on the altar of Baron Samedi thinking about zombification. But that was then, this is now. Bottle from Beers of the World.

Bottle. Another country tick-- yay Haiti. Woof, this is unpleasant fare. Grainy metallic thin harsh. But I do it for the tick. Yep.

Imaena (2004) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle. I grabbed a 6er while in Port au Prince. This stuff is pretty bad even on a hot Hatian day.

rondphoto (2690) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Clear golden amber with a slow to dissolve head, no lace. The problem with this beer is that it’s too light. The taste is actually agreeable, the finish has a little bittering, ’tho mostly from carbonation, and there is nothing out of place. Probably in a hot place like Haiti, this is a swell drink. Everywhere else it is not enough.

theisti (3414) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2013
12 oz bottle purchased at Total Wine & More in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is a clear light golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is lightly sweet grain malt, green pepper vegetal and a general off aroma. The taste is sweet, off flavor corn, green pepper and earthy garbage. Pretty dreadful. The palate is almost still, light bodied, and a sweet malt corn dirty finish.

Tonkun (1047) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle. Light golden yellow pour with minimal head. Hay, sugar, paper, grass, fruit. Refreshing carbonation with light body. Not offensive.

kerenmk (3089) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks DSG. Pours clear straw blond and headless. Straw, warm malt aroma, sweetish yucky taste, malt and piss. Hardly any carbonation, oily, too long finish. Quite disgusting, but it’s a country tick!

Grumbo (822) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle bought from a little supermarket in Marigot, Sint Maarten and dunk in the sun overlooking the Baie de Marigot. Little sets this apart from majority of the Caribbean pale lagers - golden yellow, light body, drunk cold in the sun its refreshing. This is maybe a little more malty than some of its peers.

zvikar (3963) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 24, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow with a small head, aroma of corn syrup, sweet, flavor of milk with malt and bitterness, light bodied
