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.

Had this in St. Thomas. It was creamy with some roasted malt flavors. It was easy drinking, not bitter. It was better than many of the lagers that were floating around.

Bottle pour avg hazy light copper with thin ecru head. Nose slightly vegetal, toffee, caramel. Taste sweeter malt, toffee, and a bit of bitter funk. Not very appealing

Bottle. Super cool label. Pours brown with zero head. Smells like pickles? It's a sweet brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle watching the fire ladies on St Croix. Initially big mouthfeel, tastes more than the standard lagers in these parts. Eeek sugary malty sweet. Agree with the review that says underfermented, actually tastes like homebrew from a cheap extract, doesn’t ferment out fully. Quite cloying, not ideal for the local weather. The fire dancers were good though.

Bottle from Bumpa’s in St Thomas September 2013. Hit the spot on a hot day. Malty with some biscuit aromas.

Amber in color with an offwhite medium head. Slightly bitter taste. Overall ok, but far from great.

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.

Light brown. Very sweet. Almost tastes underfermented but might be t the style they like there. Not too heavy. Thanks Tony bretz.
