I got a bottle of Prestige as a gift from a seriously amazing lady. It comes from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where it is brewed by Brasserie Nationale D'Haiti. It comes in a stubby bottle and contains 5.6% alcohol.

Prestige has been a gold medalist at the World Beer Cup. It's a pale, straw-coloured lager topped with a resilient layer of white head.  It's clear and well carbonated, with a relatively big grain aroma.  The flavour is well-balanced between sweet and bitter. It has notes of grass and grain with a dusting of hops to bring up the rear.

A crisp, clean and refreshing beer that positively screams for a sunny day, Prestige is a quality lager.  A mild taste coupled with a slightly higher than typical alcohol content makes this a dangerous session beer.  Methinks a body could get into trouble drinking Prestige all afternoon.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
