Bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that goes down pretty quick. The aroma is mostly corn and sweet malts. The flavor is OK, lots of sweet malt and grassy flavors, some dry yeast perhaps and a lot of water in the taste. An odd sweetness in the finish, maybe it is sugarcane.

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Poured a very light yellow with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly. The smell was mostly rice, but had some toasty aroma as well. The taste was standard with rice and a little malt and hops coming through. Although a very pleasant crisp bite at the end was nice. The mouthfeel was thin but for a summer beer it isn't bad. Was expecting terrible but got something that's just a bit below the average for this kind of beer.

12oz snubby nose bottle served in a pint glass

A - Pours clear and very light straw color. Small white head is gone in an instant.

S - Corn husk, cooked vegetables, herbal notes.

T - Chalky aspirin bitterness right upfront, sweet husky corn flavor, herbal minty flavor, the chalkiness tramples over the light sweet malt.

M - Medium carbonation, light body

Geez!!! Stay away from this unless you just wanna tick it. This one was hard to finish. If I lived in Haiti I wouldn't drink beer.

Sean Penn must half downed a liter or twenty of these bad boys while he was getting filled with Baron Samedi in the HAITI. Let's pop a cap before the tonton macoute arrive... .

-Appearance 3.0: Weird. Poured out a straw yellow color that slowly (and strangely) became a deep golden color. Small head dissolved into pleasing swirls all over the top.

-Smell 3.5: Very nice bouquet. I smell barley and hops and...lots of adjuncts. Still, this is miles away from your typical Macro beer.

-Taste 3.5: Front is slightly sweet with a nice corny hint. Middle is where the malt seeps in and is moderated by a wonderfully smooth adjunct that I am guessing is rice. Finish is all adjuncts, but I do (finally!) detect a hop note in it. Aftertaste is (again) all adjuncts, but is not harsh at all.

-Mouthfeel 3.0: Typical CO2 carboed mouthfeel.

-Overall 3.0: Fell just short of hitting the "3.5" category, but nonetheless, this is NOT a bad beer. Very light and refreshing and in the hellishly hot climate of Haiti, I imagine these would be like finding a bar of gold. Recommended for hot temps or those attempting to remember the hot temps. A good beer from a county that is not known for its beer!
