Despite the disadvantage if being brewed by Ybor and the clear bottle, this Pilsner stands up decently. There is a reasonable hoppy nose and a surprising mouth for a domestic Pils and a clean finish. Color, head and general body are typcal of the style but I wouldn't put in the crappy Corona class despite the marketing. It's a decent hot day pilsner that is fairly local for me so I may be getting some of the fresh stuff before the clear bottle let's go bad.

Found at King's Supermarket in Kissimmee, FL. This was a total drain pour. Not sure if it was the clear bottle or what, but this was a real disappointment. Pours a dark yellow color with a thin white head and next to no lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy with an unpleasant sourness. Flavor is lacking in pretty much every way. Tart and sour finish. Don't they make enough bad Caribbean beers IN the Caribbean? Why make them in the USA?

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

This beer pours a clear golden yellow with a smallish lightly clingy quickly dissipating white head. The body is thin and watery. The smell is sweet (slightly breadlike?) and slightly sour. The taste is slight sweet with an underlying sourness and a mild spicy hop finish. Overall an unobtrusive drinkable but completely boring beer.

2.5/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A clear, golden yellow Carribean Style Pilsner with a smallish, lightly clinging, dissipating, white head. The smell is slightly sweet. The taste is slightly sweet, with a mild hoppy, musty finish. The body is thin in my mouth. Overall, I found this Pilsner boring wih a dead after taste.

About the only good thing to say about this beer is, it's in an attractive bottle. It was skunky probably from the clear bottle and had almost no aroma or color to it. Like Venom said drink water because this is about a flat..........CHEERS
