3.11/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Consumed many Blue Marlins from various sizes and shapes of containers.

A - Pours a deep golden color - lots of carbonation, looks frothy. This does not translate into much head. Looks light, clear.

S - All kinds of pilsner malts and just a light hint of hops. This beer is meant to be inoffensive in just about every way. The pilsner does show that they had to hit this with a decent amount of malt to hit the 6%.

T - Mid-stream brings in a little bit of bitterness, some more harsh husky grainy notes from the pilsner, and just a hint of low power hops - just a little bit spicy. The finish is mostly clean, with a light retained sweetness on the tongue.

M - Very light bodied, stronger carbonation tends to give it a stinging mouthfeel. The sweetness shows itself in the finish by being a little bit cloying.

O/D - A moderately decent island beer - we all know the style, not meant to really do anything other than wet your whistle. This one does a better job of that than its much more watery sibling, Phoenix. Worthy of drinking on an island, but when I get back to beer civilization, I won't miss it. (1,115 characters)

330ml can 6,0% ABV

Appearance: Decent looking golden body (darker gold than the average macro-lager) capped by a good sized white head that unfortunately dissipates a little too fast. There is some lace on the upper reaches of the glass.

Smell: The can does not list any adjuncts in the ingredients, however the nose suggests otherwise with a definite sweet adjuncty note. A metallic aroma and some stale hops round off a very disappointing nose.

Taste: Sadly not much in the way of flavour. A little sweet malt, followed by a very dull hop flavour and some bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light body, but thankfully not watery. High level of carbonation, as with most beers of this style.

Drinkability: A hot day on the beach and an ice cold Blue Marlin will go down very well, but this is about the only case I would drink it. (827 characters)
