You put a lemon in it, so it tastes like lemon. Still it is thirst quenching on a hot day.

Bottle at St Lucia Airport. Light yellow pour, little nose, slightly more flavor. Touch of sweetness. Little to it. Hot beach day beer

Bottle in curacao. Clear light yellow . Smells of light grain. No body. Kinda seems like a corona knockoff, but slightly worse. I’ll stick with regular amstel and not go into the bright light.

Location: Tried this in small bottle poured into a clear cup by the hotel pool bar in Aruba. The first one was sampled 9/16/14.

Aroma: The aroma of this one is corn and sweet malts, not too much else here
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with a small, fizzy head and not a whole lot of lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the same, sweet malts, corn, not too much else
Palate: This one is light/watery and easy drinking, pretty much what you’d expect
Overall Impression: This is not a particularly exciting beer, but I can see why it would appeal to a certain group of people looking for a sweet, refreshing beer to drink by the ocean/beach/pool.

Poured from a clear bottle that says "Drink it Ice Cold." Yes, to avoid having to actually taste it. Pours a clear light golden with only the slightest white head that disappears quickly. The nose consists of skunky grains. The taste is marginally better, with biscuitous bready notes. The mouth is light, and goes down easy. Roughly equal with Corona or any of the mass-produced pale lagers/cervezas. I can say it’s any worse than they are, but neither is it better.

MarkoNm (758) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average white head. There is a slightly skunky smell at first, followed by a malty aroma. The taste is slightly watery, but not sweet. A decent bitterness in the body and in the finish. Surprisingly decent.

Bought this in Curacao. The aroma is weak and not distinct. It has little head and is light yellow. It has a bland taste which wasn’t refreshing at all.

Drank from a bottle at a beach bar. The beer is very fresh and doesn’t have that much taste. Works well in the hot climate though and most likely in sauna too. Served with a slice of lime.

Bottle at DTE tasting. Clear gold pour no head. Grainy aroma, cheap pale lager, no hoppiness but no metal either, which is nice. Clean flavor, (ie flavorless), light sweet maltiness. Not offensive, which is the best quality a country tick can have.
