The beer falls short.
When first poured, it was obviously flat. Lack of carbonation is a trend I have noticed with beers from this brewer. I am frankly surprised this beer made it out of the brewery and onto the shelf. Whenever I have brewed a beer of my own that was this flat, I considered it a failure. Where is the quality control?
My first quaff had an initial, balanced flavor in-line with an amber ale; but then the flavor was lost. Within seconds, it was like drinking a mildly-flavored water.
The bottle says that the alcohol content is 5.5%. I doubt this. The lack of body argues against enough malt in the wort to have the potential for this percentage, and I felt no impact at all from alcohol as I finished it. I would like to see the specific gravity readings that equate to 5.5%.
A lighter beer with flavor and body is a good idea for the Caribbean, but this is not a beer that realizes the idea. It is, as I said, a mildly-flavored, lightly-alcoholic, still-water brew. Corona has more character.
We give this beer a rating of “Pour it Down the Sink”.
