3.63/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle.
This lager pours an amber/red color, with a respectable rocky head (although diminishing quite soon), fine, active carbonation and clingy lace. The aroma is primarily of malt and caramel, with a new mowed hay characteristic. The taste has a slightly sweet start, flat non-distinctive middle and a dry finish, with a lingering bite and hints of caramel. The feel is medium bodied: that is creamy yet effervescent. A dry finish remains. Not a complicated beer by any stretch, but well rounded and drinkable.

A- Short-lived white head on a light copper body.

S- Sweetness. Light hoppy aroma.

T- More sweetness from the malts, good flavor. Nothing off putting. I like it!

M- Crisp, good carbonation.

D/O- Pretty drinkable! Ultimately I'm left wondering, if they can make light lagers like this in Belize, why can't they do it in 'Merica? Thanks a ton Monsone for finding this special (for me) beer on my wants list.

3.35/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Straw yellow to golden hue, solid head retention and plenty of lacing.

S: Light crispy malts with a hint of german bitters. Hints of sweetness like a werthers toffee.

T: Im giving this one above average because of the sweetness in the malt. It finishes far too early, but unlike budmiloors, its got some character other than water.

M: Soft and slightly soapy wash.

O: Slightly above average for the reasons above. Still prefer the Belikin stouts though.

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A-Pours a ridiculously clear straw color with a finger of white head.

S-As soon as I open the bottle I'm blasted in the face by really skunky aromas. I'm also able to discern some light, sweet grain notes.

T-Sweet grain on the front with some cracker and green apple finished with a light bitterness and some skunk that comes through on the finish.

M-Surprisingly low carbonation with a really slick feel, and a medium body.

D-All in all, not a beer I'd revisit without knowing it's fresh... I imagine it'd only be okay, even when fresh though.

Reviewed from notes. Served in a tumbler at duPlooy's Jungle Lodge in the Cayo district of Belize. Pours a translucent honey with a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that dissipates into a skim and a thin band around the edges. Nose expresses clover honey and cereal grains - fairly interesting. Taste follows nose - clover honey sweetness keeps it from being refreshing; however, the taste is not unpleasant. There is also some light caramel/toffee notes mixed in with the adjuncts and malt profile. Mouthfeel is light, with a crisp, even carbonation. Decent, but not as refreshing as some of the Central American beers I've had the opportunity to try.

Poured into a Perfect Pint glass.

A: Straight gold with a slight chill haze and active carbonation. A small and soapy white head quickly falls to a ring at the beer's edge. Leaves bits of lace.

S: A little musty at first. That aroma gives way to a small dose of sugar sweetness and bit of corn.

T: Starts out generally tasteless. Especially cold. A corn syrup sweetness eventually arrives. It's balanced by a flavorless bitterness. As the beer warms, cooked cabbage sneaks in. Things get a little metallic before the beer finishes with lingering syrup and vegetable flavors.

M: The light body has strong and prickly carbonation.

D: It's beer in the vein of many a bargain lager. I'm glad I only bought a single.

2.25/5  rDev -29.7%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance - Somewhat hazy, light honey color with a white head that was non-existent even with an aggressive pour. Left only a trace of lacing. What head that was present was soapy and fizzy.

Smell - This aroma had some doughy biscuit. A bit of wheat. A slight sourness also. Not real pleasing or inviting.

Taste - The taste was very similar to the smell with the doughy biscuit. Somewhat of a malt backbone. I even got a touch of "smoke"??? Unexpected. The taste was not outstanding, but at least it had a touch of character. However as it warmed, the tastes became more distracting.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel was medium to mostly light. Smooth. Crisp. Somewhat refreshing. Left a tiny bit on the palate.

Drinkability - This is not a beer that I would want to make a night of. Not anything I will pick up again. Better than "macros," but I would hope I could find something a bit better as a last resort.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #38 (Mar 2010):

Head is lacking a bit and not completely clear. Some sweet-cooked veggies, confection sugar/white chocolate and green peppercorn in the nose. Light bodied, semi-crisp. Apple skin, dried hay, animal feed, chalky. Hop bitterness is one-sided and does not lend any true flavor. Mealy apple, husk ... astringent in a way that does not take away from drinkability. Candy sweetness, taffy-like. Mildly fruity; nutty, powdery yeast in the dry finish.

Not half bad ... an oddball beer. It grew on us with each sip.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Shared a six pack of this on the tender from Belize City to the cruise ship.
Pours a standard pale straw yellow color with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly.
Smells of grainy malt a hint of corn and floral hops.
Taste is pretty decent for a light lager. Sweet grainy malts with a hint of honey and floral hops. A hint of dms and a relatively dry finish.
Medium carbonation, low to medium body, creamy/watery mouthfeel.
Not a bad lager at all to drink down on a hot day. If I ever make it back to Belize I wouldn't hesitate to tip a few of these back.

served in a larger bottle than it's cousin belikin lager. light amber color, surprising to see anything but a golden lager in the caribbean. clear. off-white diminishing head. some caramel and nuts in the nose but a bit faint. light caramel malt sweetness and just some very lightly bitter subdued hops in the background, but still alot more going on than most island lagers. crisp and frothy, clean finish. light to medium body. the best of the local beers i tried in belize.
