Prestige Lager

This is a 5.6% ABV lager from the Brasserie Nationale d'Haiti, founded in 1976. Haiti is not exactly a known hot bed of beer brewing, so I am curious to give this a try. High marks on the stubby bottle.

The beer pours a very clear and pale golden in color. There is quite a bit of carbonation, and a tall white head of foam that doesn't last particularly long. The aroma is light grain, light grassy hops, with a touch of straw. The taste follows the aromas, a touch of sweetness, ending with a light grassy bitterness. It drinks crisply refreshing with stinging carbonation. This does well for what it is, a light adjunct lager meant for drinking on hot tropical days.
