A - Poured out a clear, pale straw yellow color with a small, short-lived head. It left little to no lacing.
S - It smelled of grains and caramel with a subtle floral presence.
T - Not bad for a green bottle. Sweet caramel and grain flavor with a touch of bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.
O - This is a nice beer from Belize. Glad someone brought some back for me.

250 ml. bottle poured into a hotel drinking glass from where we stayed in San Pedro.
Appearance: Pale gold color to the body, with a quickly dissipating, but initially frothy bright white head to the brew.
Smell: Mild grain and either corn sweetness or diacetyl. Not much more.
Taste: Grain and mild bitterness. Easy to drink, and not much of a finish. But it tastes fine in the Belizean heat.
Mouthfeel: Lighter-bodied, moderate carbonation.
Overall: A Belizean version of the American adjunct. Easy going. Not bad in the heat or drinking it at the local bars. For what it is, and with the limited choices, I definitely drank my fair share when we were there.

Pours a thin white bubbly head that fades to a light ring with no lacing. Very clear and very pale yellow color.
Smells grainy, sweet and macro like. Maybe some german sazz hops of something of the sort.
Tastes similar to the smell. Sweet, grainy and malty. Not offensive in any way, just not full flavored.
Overall this is an easy drinking summer time beer. Quite fizzy and light on the palate. This was not cheap to come by as a friend brought it back from the source. Thank you Bryan.

Poured while in Belize city, one of our cruise ship ports.
A: Light yellow, clear
S: Typical American adjunct lager grainy smell.
T: I am pretty sure all beer in the Caribbean is brewed in one place and filled into different bottles. Blind taste test I am going with Budweiser all the way with most of these. The little flavor present is also grainy and mild bitterness.
M: Smooth, fuller bodied than a light lager. On par for a standard lager.
O: I could care less about how good or bad the beer was; I was on vacation and having a beer, away from the Bud Light dominated cruise ship.

Reviewed from notes. Served in a tumbler at duPlooy's Jungle Lodge in the Cayo district of Belize. Pours a translucent, urine yellow with a quarter inch, bright white head that quickly dissipates into a freckled skim and a frothy band around the shoulders. Nose reveals faint cereal adjuncts and sweet corn. Taste follows nose - less sweet with a trace of skunk. Mouthfeel is light and watery with a carbonation just shy of lively. Easy drinking, albeit somewhat lackluster. Definitely climate appropriate, but no real flavor here.

lighter than regular belikin in every way, otherwise pretty much the same beer. served in a smaller bottle (7 or 8 oz?). light straw color, clear, with a minimal diminishing white head. frothy, light, just a touch of malt and adjunct sweetness, very little to no hop character.

Poured from a 237 ml. bottle into a glass at a bar in Belize. 237ml? Whoa, I think that's about 8 oz. But then, it was Happy Hour and I got two for one.
Pours a deep straw in color with a thin head, which settles to a surface ring in about two minutes.
Quite grainy on the nose and with no hop presence. Not bad however, with what seemed like unmalted barley and a touch of rice. No corn here, go to Honduras for that.
Has a matching flavor and with a grainy and slightly sweet finish. Raw grains leave a lingering coarse finish and offers a good carbonation, though cleaner than an all malt bill might suggest.
Fuller bodied than anticipated as I was expecting a light lager. This is a pleasant beer and I think appropriately categorized, perhaps somewhat Euro in style. Light in alcohol and diminutive in size, it's a easy tropical quaffer.

My mother brought me back a bunch of bottles from her recent cruise, and this was the first one I opened. A tiny little nib like bottle, I was very intrested. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 04/04/2009.
The pour was average. Straw yellow with lots of fizz and a small white head that quickly faded away leaving nothing in its wake. The aroma was dull, musky grain with a touch of hay and not much in the way of depth at all. Stale macro lager flavor with no after taste to speak of. Light body, lots of carbonation and little to no impression left behind in its wake.
Overall we have all been here before. Different country and bottle, but macro is macro.
