Little to no head over a yellow beer. No nose except a bit of honey. Taste is sweet, like kit homebrew. A bit yeasty, and mossy. No finish. Not bad in a open air bar in the USVI thoug.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Extremely pale gold, with a generous, white head that persisted for several minutes. Very fizzy overall. Aroma of skunk and corn. Tasteless at the start, then finishes with a strange chemical, malt liquor-esque bite. Quite a watery brew.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2005
Golden colour with small white head. Sweet nose. Flavor is watery and thin with some corn sweetness.

pintbypint (2836) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
500ml can. Golden pour, strange suspeneded particles of god-knows-what. Head comes on strong - white, creamy, lacy, then collapses into a thin film. Sweet malt aroma. taste - sourish malt, soapy notes, some sugar. if it tastes this bad from a can, Iíd hate to have one from a clear bottle. Stop the madness.

Bottled
Not as bad as expected. Light hop aroma. Corny flavor, some sweetness, light sourly, light lemonade flavor. Some bitterness in the end.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Pale golden, thick white head. Pure skunkiness out of the bottle. Aroma of paint and vinyl siding over thin pale malt. Flavour is thin and chemically. A bit of apple. Shitty.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Can. Pale gold, white head, at the end of the glass there was some sediment and I donít know what to make out of that. Sweet aroma, good olí corn. Mild flavor, sweet, some corn again, woo hoo. Firmer mouthfeel than expected. Not horrible, but not good.

garrison (792) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2005
This one poured a pale yellow with a high white head and a slightly skunky aroma (thank you, clear bottle!). Thereís some graininess to the taste, and I suspect that this would be an okay "lawnmower beer", but itís pretty much just another boring Latin American lager (in that milleu, Iíd rather have a Caguama).

caesar (5654) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2005
Clear yellow color, short white head, hardly any carbonation. Aroma of grain, some hops. Quite weak and watery taste, bit grainy. Not too good, but on a sunny day in Trinidad & Tobago probably one of the better drinks.
