My even the fantastic views of Antigua could save this beer. Who let the skunk out? Very malty, no hop, skunky flavor. Started to be tolerable after 5 or 6 glasses. Draft a little better than the bottles

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a one-finger pure white head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Crystal clear light straw color. Good carbonation and very light bodied. Sweet almost skunky nose and flavor is sweet corn with hops in the background. Bottled Aug 18, 2014, Gift, 250ml green bottle.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
7th April 2014 and we land on Antigua, after a few hours on the beach and drinking this beers big brother we returned to St John’s: the wife decides she wants here nails done, so I neck a green 250ml bottle of this while I wait outside in the sun. We then walk towards the port area and pop into ’Big Banana’ a bar for tourists close too the cruise jetty. It is here that I get another bottle and a glass to drink it out of. I liked it more than the 5.6% Gold that comes in cans, but only just. Not a lot to this typical Caribbean lager/pilsner, it fact it could have been brewed anywhere in the world to be honest. Golden, a little paler than the stronger version but with the same white head. Odourless and nearly tasteless it refreshes the parts that need refreshing without actually giving any flavour or taste. Nice friendly island though, apart from the taxi/tour operators not taking a polite ’no thank you’ as they peddle their trade.

Bottle at Skullduggery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. A bit on the skunky side with bland pilsner hop highlights. Pretty much your standard island lager. below average body and mouthfeel.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Fairly typical Caribbean beer. Drank in on the beach in Antigua. Pale yellow, thin head. Serves it purpose when served cold on the beach, but not especially flavorful.

Skunké d’un bout à l’autre et elle goûte ce qu’elle doit, l’urine de fin de brosse avec une touche de houblons génériques. Une chance qu’elle est glaciale.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
8.5oz bottle. Rating #55. Very light straw yellow pour with a small white head. Straight up skunky aroma and not much else that I can pull out of it. Flavor is very similar, more skunk and pretty awful. (2720)

Sampled a few of these whilst on a days tour of Antigua. Much like its peers, light gold, bit fizzy, fairly bland, but drunk cold on a hot day its refreshing and serves its purpose.

Bottle to taster (thanks jcwattsrugger). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy and a little bitter with a below average mouthfeel. Tickers gotta tick.
