We conclude the four-way Golden Invitation with this offering from Central America: Belikin Beer from Belize. Will this brew match up with the competition? Find out now:

Poured from its dark bottle, it looks like the bad stereotype of a fizzy yellow beer, but with a darker body. It's thin head retains almost nothing. The smell is faint with sticky corn sweetness and little else. Now the taste is absolutely make-or-break in terms of giving it a high enough score...(drumroll)...the bitterness from the hops is moderate, and that's as good as I can say about it. This beer is full of corn, and it brings those lovely corn off-flavors we all hate. Did they use ANY malt in this, or replace it all with corn? Not for me, sorry. But it could be a lot worse if the hop flavor were dumbed down. You can forget about anticipating this brew in the final drumroll of the Golden Invitational.

So who won the Golden Invitational? Well, let's announce the winner, and it is....

Golden Pheasant from Bohemia!

The ironically named Golden Pheasant takes the gold in this, the Golden Invitational. Four regions showed off their interpetations of those yellow/golden colored beers, and it feels like I've traveled a long way to taste them. Read my previous reviews to see what you've missed out on. Good night everyone!

I travelled to Belize for Spring Break in 2013, I drank quite a few Belikin Beers while I was there to say the least. Unlike most of the surrounding countries whose main beers are American Adjunct style this splendid little beer is a pale lager. It pours light golden, little head, it has a somewhat strong aroma, and has light hops taste. The bottle is pretty cool in itself, pretty heavy duty, because they recycle most of the class bottles continuously.

Not going to lie; this one was probably influenced by the surroundings where I had it. From tropical beaches to dark rainforests, Belikin followed me throughout my week long trip to Belize. A very enjoyable beer that just might lose its charm when consumed stateside.
