1.36/5  rDev -47.3%

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.

Pours a four-finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving traces of lace. Crystal clear, pale amber color. Skunky nose. Light carbonation and light bodied. Flavor is metallic and hoppy with a bitter finish a truly pitiful beer. Buy it only to add to your list of countries - #74 for me. 12oz bottle $1.70 from Kappy's Fresh Pond Jamaica Plain, MA.

1.48/5  rDev -42.6%

From a bottle lurking in my local beer store. Why am I so damn curious? It will be my downfall.

Hmmm. "World Beer Cup gold medal", eh? So the Holy Grail is made of corn. Ok. That was just the aroma.

Appearance: Clear, very pale, low to medium carbonation.

Taste? Not so bad as the aroma made out. Just very bland and again somewhat corny. Nothing at all to write about, the initial adjunct taste dissipates to nothing.

The finish: Haha, what's that?

Epilogue: Avoid. My drain is going to complain about what I am just going to put down it...

1.5/5  rDev -41.9%

Bottle: Poured a super pale light yellow color lager with a medium size bubbly white head with low retention and no lacing. Aroma of skunk and sweet adjunct is not very enticing. Taste is dominated by some sweet adjunct with not as much skunk notes as I had anticipated. Body is thin with average carbonation. Poor world lager if you ask my opinion.

1.83/5  rDev -29.1%

From 01/07/12 notes. Thanks to GT on RB for sharing this one. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a transparent pale yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of corn, grains, vegetables, skunked, wheat, and bread. Lightly sour, and not very enjoyable.

t - Tastes of sweet corn, vegetables, grains, and sour, skunked notes. Worse than the nose, not good at all.

m - Light body and low to moderate carbonation. Watery feel to it.

o - Overall a pretty bad beer; worse than American made AAL's. Would not suggest seeking out until you're trying to tick Haiti.

1.83/5  rDev -29.1%

Appearance: Pours a near clear body with only a light yellow tint and topped by a thin, wisp of a white head.

Smell: Faint aroma of watered-down malts and grassy hops. It's hard not to look crestfallen after sniffing this one.

Taste: Bland, weak flavor only a teeny tiny hint of malts and corn sugar. Hops are gone. Dash of mineral water for the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A cheerless beer experience. I'm ashamed to say it, but I Haiti'd it.

2/5  rDev -22.5%

Aroma - Cheap corn lager, not disgusting just not too appealing. OK not a good aroma at all.

Appearance - Maybe the palest yellow I've ever seen a beer. Just a little carbonation.

Taste - Not much on the taste profile. Pretty much your run of the mill swill lager. Actually less taste than expected. Slightly off bitter aftertaste that stays around way too long.

Mouthfeel - Thin lacking enough carbonation. A surprisingly poor mouthfeel, can this beer do anything right? More carbonation would have been welcome.

Drinkability - Not drinkable. If this was dirty cheap, and I mean dirt cheap, it might be an option.

Found this one at a gas station in Fort Lauderdale, I've never had Haitian beer before. The bottle is cool, reminiscent of a Red Stripe in shape, with a screened on red and yellow label. Prestige pours a very pale yellow with a white head from a twelve ounce stubby. It smells like corn. Taste isn't exactly what I expected, nor is it terrilby good. Tastes like corn/adjunct macro lager of a poor degree. Not recommended.

2.23/5  rDev -13.6%

Thought that I'd seen a better review for this than it is. Anyway, it poured with a nice, big, foamy white head with no lace. Color is a pale gold. Aroma was bready, biscuity, doughy, citrusy, a bit fruity, a hint of hop - and way better than the taste. Which was a bit beery, sweet, with a slight bitter finish. Quite watery. Bubblegum in the background. Not looking forward to another ever.

2.25/5  rDev -12.8%

I gotta say, this beer pretty much looks exactly like piss. Thin, yellow, clear, and with the barest hint of a head. Some moderate bitterness in the nose that overlays some adjunct notes, but I don't get creamed corn or cooked vegetables at least. The taste is quite watery with a short, leafy bitterness to start, and then a corny flavor. Still, relatively clean, which is more than I can say of some beers. Thin and watery in the mouth, with a corn and cracker finish. Drink it while it's cold.

2.28/5  rDev -11.6%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a pale yellow color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of adjuncts, light malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out a little bready with flavors of grain and adjuncts, then there's a light malt sweetness that comes in. The hops presence is decent for the style. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Not very flavorful, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, not one of the better beers that's had out of a style that usually doesn't produce anything too good to begin with. Overall, it's not a beer that I'd want to drink again if I had much of a choice.

2.3/5  rDev -10.9%

A: The beer is crystal clear very light yellow in color and poured with a half-finger high bright white head that quickly died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong sweet aromas of adjunct malts in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has a light amount of initial sweetness along notes of corn and grain. There is some skunkiness in the aftertaste.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This might be a good beer for a hot day in the tropics but there’s nothing special about this beer to make me want to try another.

2.33/5  rDev -9.7%

12 ounce stubby, Red stripe type bottle, there is a boast on the label that this beer won a gold at the 2000 World Beer Cup in NYC in the American style lager category. I'm not impressed. This one pours super light, clear and topped with a mid sized bubble blanket of head. Zip lacing, no nose that I can pick up, except perhaps some sugary adjuncts. Very thin tasting, just a hint of light malt and a dash of dryness late. Consume this "Beer" ONLY on a very hot day.
