1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured golden. Smelled like a barley wine. High expectations. Tasted nothing like it smelled. They ahold call this beer "butter face"
Tasted like someone steeped some grass in water. It was cold though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks for sharing, Tony. It poured a clear amber colour with weak off-white foam. Very sweet, which is apparently the popular local style in the Virgin Islands. Reminiscent of caramel candies, corn syrup, molasses, rum. Medium-heavy body, sticky mouthfeel, lots of residual sweetness into the aftertaste too. Decent and drinkable, but not my kinda thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very under rated beer! It pours copper w/ a white head that quickly fades into a lot of lacing. The aroma is a little spicy & almost a hint of Belgian. The taste is very well balanced w/ a hint of fruitiness that sets it apart from standard ambers. Interesting yet pleasant!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Self listed as an amber ale. Malty aroma. Lots of white lace on yellow golden. A little astringent, and corn. Bitter, even a tad sour and not so drinkable. I could have this on a 100 Fahrenheit day in a pinch.Thanks for sharing Josh.

Pretty astringent for amber with some residual sourness at the end. Pours amber. Not much hops or anything. Looks ok for style though. Bottle from store in St. John.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of light grains and a little copper. Taste has some sugar sweetness with a slightly bitter finish. Mouth is medium. Ok, but nothing special. Went great with a reuben on the beach.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and butter. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a beer below average with diacetyl.

Pours cloudy dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, sweet and fruity. Strange. Flavour is dry caramel, dark fruit and light citrus.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle. Aroma is mostly butterscotch and caramel malt, maybe a little rum butter toffee. Pours orangey amber with small off white head and little lacing. Not entirely filtered. Taste is kind of a sour butterscotch. Not bad, but a little odd. Body is pretty average. Overall, kind of tastes like a weaker barley wine or heavy scotch ale. Not a failure, but not a resounding success.
