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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
