11.157 (?) oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada Imperial Pint. 5% ABV, Best by end (BBE): Jun/10 on neck.

Thanks to my friend Jason for bringing two bottles of this to share from his Honeymoon!

A - Pours crystal clear allowing all the carbonation bubbles to be visible. A big white head pops up with some loud effervescence only to drop to a thin layer quickly. No lace.

S - It's got the classic Euro Lager skunkiness to it. In the background are pale and pilsner smelling malts wrapped in a dry straw and husky nose. Crisp and clean with a low sweetness.

T - Pale malts with lots of dry straw and an off-putting huskiness. The typical skunkiness is there giving the finish a slightly unpleasant taste. Low lingering sweetness.

M - Slick on the tongue with a thin body and flavor. Moderately carbonated and crisp to the finish.

D - I can see it washing down well on a warm island but here, it's mediocre at best. Just another Euro lager that's a fair session beer. I can't say I'd be opposed to pounding a bunch of these under the sun though.

A cut above Bud but other wise unremarkable. Works if ice cold on a hot day but otherwise it's nothing special. Not aroma, bland taste, overly carbonated for my taste.

When in the Caymans drink like the Caymanians! But skip this brew - it's not very exciting and very similar to a bud light

Pretty decent beer, taste is similar to an Italian lager. Yellow, smells decent, has to be served very cold. Much better than like a Red stripe or Corona. Hard to find this beer outside of Florida. Might have a hard time marketing it here, If you are in the mood for a tropical beer try it. Would go well with spicy foods.
