look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a dimpled mug.

A: Crisp and golden with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Appears to be heavily carbonated, with lots of bubbles rising from the bottom and stuck to the sides of the glass. Looks exactly how I'd expect a tropical lager to look, if not a bit darker.

S: Sort of weak grain with slightly fruity notes. Very small hint of skunking, nothing too offensive.

T: Much like the smell, watery and grainy with slight fruit and even slighter skunk. It's not bad, but it's not really impressive. Not too different from other tropical lagers.

M: Thin with lots of carbonation, true to the style.

O: This is a beer that's very much like other tropical lagers I've had. It's not my favorite, but it's not repulsive, either. It's just kind of there. I've rated it relatively highly because it is, in my opinion and experience, exactly what I expected from a lager exported from a tropical country. It gets lots of points for being true to the style, but loses points subjectively, because as true to style as it is, it's not a style that I'm in love with by any means. Beats the hell out of Corona, though.

Well balanced and refreshing, a good example of the adjunct style. The hops are non aromatic but provide the expected refreshing bitterness that lets you quench your thirst. Pleasant yeasty nose combined with a light mouthfeel and a very clean finish make this an excellent choice for warm weather chillin. At $12 for a 12 pack it's really worth checking out, if we ever get through the winter :)

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Pours a clear and golden color which is topped with a very generous whitea foamy head with quite good retention.
The pleasant hoppy aroma is very gentle and I could also point out some grainy smell.
The taste starts a bit too sweet with just a minimal amount of bitterness in the body. The finish is bland, nothing to it. Also, it has a slightly watery feel.
Great beer to have on a sunny beach, but not so great if you want a lot of taste out of it.

Bottle brought back from DR by my buddy Tyler

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Skunk, bread, corn, apples

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, corn and apples. There is also some bread and a some grassy notes. It ends with a bready/grainy aftertaste.

Overall - Nice and refreshing.. can see how this would be great on a hot beach. Not bad for an adjunct.
